The Chrysler Pacifica, it is by far the best van that Chrysler has ever built, and I'm proud that the vehicle is built locally. I also love the Jeep Grand Cherokee. It is such a versatile SUV and is my favorite winter vehicle.

Curtis Mandeville
New Vehicles Sales Manager

Tell us about yourself

I have worked in the automotive industry for over twenty years. I have been married to my beautiful wife for almost six years. In our blended family we have three daughters and one son. Last August we welcomed our first granddaughter; Sophie. When I'm not at the dealership, I love spending time with my family, bbq'ing and golfing with my father in law (although my golf game could definitely use A LOT of work). I am also a diehard Edmonton Oilers fan.

What is the best part of your job?

I love meeting new people. Being able to build lasting relationships with both the customers as well as the staff is very important to me. At Chatham Chrysler, you definitely feel like you are family the minute you walk through the doors.

What is your favourite vehicle?

I have two. I love both the Jeep Wrangler and RAM 1500 equally. My wife owns a 2019 Jeep Wrangler and I currently drive a RAM 1500. They offer a nice drive on both city roads and highways, but can easily be taken down rougher terrain.

What do you love about the community of Chatham?

As a new Chatamite I have found everyone to be so incredibly friendly. Everyone that I have met since moving to Chatham has shown me how much they care not only about their city but their fellow neighbour. THANK YOU Chatham for being so welcoming.

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.

Receptionist

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.
