Get to know me!

“The lot King” I started my Owasco journey almost 6 years ago now where I started as a general labourer organizing the lot, cleaning cars, putting window stickers in cars, just picking up loose ends around the dealership in efforts to create the ultimate customer experience at Owasco. As I changed roles in the dealership while attending York University I began selling cars by appointment while also working on the lot. I moved my way through the dealership from inventory manager to assistant sales manager and now I am in my current role as a Sales Manager where I have been in this role for about a year and a half.

Working for a family-owned company rather than a “dealer group” the following of not only VW enthusiasts but Owasco enthusiasts is what I value most about working here. Owasco is the type of place where hard work does not go unnoticed. Acting in a customer experience-based atmosphere is what I feel separates us from the rest.

In a changing sales landscape where access to hundreds of dealerships is only a click away really all you can do to set yourself apart from the rest is to sell your service and the dealership. This is why in a management role I believe in leading by example and trying to be the hardest working guy on the sales team. At the end of the day without our customers, we are just a big parking lot.

As a member of the Owasco hockey team in my time away from work, I enjoy playing hockey, baseball, golf. I’m also a huge NFL fan. If I’m not at the golf course you can find me spending time with my friends or family.

If you are looking for a new set of wheels whether it be a new VW, a pre-owned VW, or an item from our non-VW pre-owned selection I would appreciate the opportunity to either expand or start your relationship with the Owasco team please feel free to contact me!

Fav VW has to be the GTI, it’s been so good for so long.

Review: My daughter and I purchased a used VW Jetta from Erik at Owasco and had a wonderful experience. He was professional, courteous and very timely in addressing any questions and/or concerns that either of us had regarding this significant first major purchase for her. We would wholeheartedly recommend Erik and the Owasco team to anyone looking to purchase an excellent used vehicle from an honourable and very customer satisfaction oriented group!

Review: Erik worked with me on my used car purchase and found him very helpful. He took care of all aspects of the sale and saved me time, which is important to me as I live out of the area. A pleasure to deal with and will look for my next used purchase at Owasco.

Review: Save time and just buy your car here. Whether it’s a Jetta, golf, Atlas or Tiguan. This is the spot for the best deals and service. I looked everywhere and talked to all the dealerships in the GTA. Erik and the squad at Owasco are by far the best so save your time and just go there to find your new ride.

Review: I just negotiated a lease buy-out with Erik from Owasco (completely online) and had a great experience. Erik was extremely helpful, walked me through the entire process, and even arranged to pick-up the car from my house. I would recommend utilizing them if you are looking to sell your car and or buy-out your existing lease.
