“I started as a part-time detailer for Kocourek Ford Lincoln when I was 18 years old, right out of High School with no real direction. 4 months later I was given the opportunity to move into the Sales Department with no experience. They gave me all the training I needed to understand the business and be successful. Through the years I have been one of the top Sales Consultants, Business Managers and am now the New Car Sales Manager for the Kocourek Ford Lincoln location. Kocourek is such a great organization that is willing to invest in/train their employees and give them the opportunity to grow within the company”

“I started my career with Kocourek Nissan/Kia four years ago as a Service Advisor. I had been in the auto industry for 15 years before joining the company and my experience centered around customer service, which I have always enjoyed. Since joining the team, I have used the training, tools and processes provided by Kocourek, my fellow team members and the manufacturers to expand my skills and knowledge in the industry. As a result of taking advantage of the opportunities I had available to me, our department has won many awards from both Nissan and Kia. In 2018 I won the Silver Medal from Nissan in the Nissan Service Advisor Competition after competing against every Nissan Service Advisor in the country, which was a direct result of the coaching I received from Kocourek. After 3 ½ years I was promoted to the Service Manager position for our store and I have loved my job even more since. I am very fortunate to work with a talented, hard-working, efficient team that has a positive attitude and consistently help each other when necessary to make sure our guests receive a truly exceptional experience. They are the backbone of our department and they make me look forward to coming to work every day.”

“I started 4 years ago as a Parts Advisor at Imports. I left after a year to go to school for fire/medic. While in school, I worked part-time working at Brickners Little Chicago. After I finished school, I went full time at Brickners and then my wife and I had our 3rd "opps" baby. So, instead of moving to Antigo for fire/medic, I decided to continue working on cars. Then in December of 2017, I was talking to someone at Ford who told me that Ford was hiring and I talked to the Service Manager who hired me and I started in January 2018. I heard there was a Parts Manager position opening up at Imports, and with my past parts experience, I thought it would be a good opportunity that I couldn’t pass on so I talked to our COO and made the move to my current position as Parts Manager at Imports”
