    General Manager
    814-868-4805 ext. 304

     Jim is from the Erie area and has lived here most of his life.  He spent a few years in the Pacific Northwest, but found that he missed his family too much so he moved back in 1993 and has been here ever since.

        Jim has been in the car business for 20 years now.  He started as a mechanic and, after a few years, decided to give sales a try.  With hard work and the good fortune of being surrounded by great people, he was promoted to sales manager and recently has been appointed to GM of this great organization.  
        His number one focus is providing a great workplace for the staff here and, in doing so, making it easier and enjoyable for them to provide a premium experience for all of our customers. Our mission statement at New Motors is, "exceeding our customers' expectations period!" and this is his number one goal. 
        When Jim is not at work, he loves spending time with his lovely wife Christine, beautiful daughter Abby and their 4 dogs.  They are huge Chicago Cubs fans and really enjoy baseball season.  He's also an avid Dallas Cowboys fan.  There is nothing he enjoys more than watching his daughter grow up and being a part of a great family.
