  • Matt Herder
    New Car Sales Manager
    877-241-7361

    Tell us a little about Matt!
    I grew up in the car business. My father owns a small used car lot in Port Perry Ontario, as with most small businsesses; their kids were free labour LOL!  That's where I first got my love of car sales and I have been hooked ever since.  I am happily married to my beautiful wife, Kelly Herder, and together we have 5 kids in ages ranging from 32 years old to 7 years old. I often joke that I deal with every stage of parenting at once!  I have sold Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram products for the last 15 years and have loved every second of it.

    What is the best part about your job?
    The best part of my job is seeing customer's smile. The satisfaction in knowing you made the connection with them and their vehicle and made a friend in the process is truly amazing.

    What is your favourite Chrysler vehicle?
    My favourite vehicle is the Ram 1500. I drive one and am always amazing by the power and versatility they have.

    What do you love about the community of Chatham-Kent?
     I grew up in a small town of 5,000 people where everyone knew each other. Even thought Chatham-Kent is much larger the people make it feel smaller and homier. The community makes you feel like you're family.  We are one of the most generous communities in Ontario, and it's because of the people who live here, and I am proud to be one of them.

    Tell us a little about Armando! (CARmando)

    As a passionate and driven business professional I work hard to stay at the top of my game, constantly building on product knowledge to better serve you, but it's not all business. I am an avid sports fan, toy collector, experienced investor with an honours degree from York University in fine arts, so you will always have something to talk about with me.  When I'm not at Chatham Chrysler you may find me spending time with my better half Jillian and my step Daughter Alexys splashing in the pool or enjoying a long walk with the family and fur baby Archie!  I joined Chatham Chrysler in December 2014, new to the industry but ready to learn, develop, and grow as a Sales Consultant for an amazing company with an equally impressive product line.  I've spent over 25 years in customer service and strongly believe in building close personal relationships with my clients to best serve their needs.

    What is the best part about your job?
    For me the best part of my job is the amazing people I get to meet every day, everyone is unique with their own story to tell.  There is nothing that compared to seeing the huge smiles on my clients face when they pick up their new vehicle.

    What is your favourite Chrysler vehicle?
    Hands down I love the Jeep Wrangler, with its rugged exterior look and second-to-none capability, the Wrangler is in a class all of its own.  Push the limits off-road, rock climbing or water forging, Jeep Wrangler can do it all! Its unique design also allows you to remove the hardtop and enjoy summer like no other vehicle can.

    What do you love about the community of Chatham-Kent?
    We have kind hearted people that truly embrace the small town mentality.  The community works together to support local charities. We host multiple world class events that allow local families and businesses to enjoy Chatham and all it has to offer.

  • Nicole Smith
    Receptionist
    5193548000

    About me: First off, I am a mom, I have 3 sassy but sweet daughters, and I am truly afraid for them to
    reach teenage years for many reasons. Some things I like doing is spending as much time with my family,
    and when the kids are in bed, you can find me under my heating blanket with unhealthy snacks like
    chips and dip or popcorn watching my shows like greys anatomy or survivor.

    Best part of my job, is having the best seat in the dealership. I am the first face customers see when they
    come in, and I like helping them with whatever brings them in to see us, whether that's to talk to
    someone in sales, or if I direct them to service.

    Favourite Chrysler vehicle: I drive a Dodge Caravan because the DVD player and space are convenient
    for having 3 kids, but my next vehicle will definitely be a RAM truck, they have a lot of space, and come
    in handy for a lot of reasons.

    What I love about Chatham-Kent, is we're a close community. We usually all come together when a
    family is in need. It's not too big and not too small, and is a close drive to the border. I Feel it's a safe
    place to raise my kids, and I love it here.
