 CLICK EACH OF THE PICTURES BELOW TO LEARN ABOUT MY GREAT TEAM MEMBERS HERE AT GREY MOTORS MAZDA

Jerry has been in the Automotive Business since he was 19.  He put himself through the McMaster University Commerce Program while selling cars in the summer.  After graduating from the Commerce program, he began his automotive career as an Assistant Sales Manager at a large GM dealership in Pickering Ontario and has never looked back.  After several promotions and years of learning the business, he had the opportunity to purchase his own dealership, Grey Motors Pontiac Buick GMC, in Owen Sound.  So, in 1999, Jerry moved to Owen Sound with his wife and son and began his journey as a business owner.  There have been many changes over the years, including switching to Mazda in 2010, but one thing has remained; Jerry's commitment to providing his clients with honest, and trustworthy advice in their search for their automotive needs.  It has served him and his family well for over 18 years in Owen Sound, a town he now calls home.
Jerry, with his wife and 2 sons, enjoy hockey, soccer and relaxing in his backyard on Sundays when he's not traveling for hockey.

"Please feel free to click on any of the great staff below and read about them.  We value your business and my staff are looking forward to taking care of your Automotive needs.  They are just the same as you...good natured, honest, hard working Canadians, trying to provide for their families.  Give us a try, you'll be glad you did."

Paula McGuinness
Secretary Treasurer

Paula, our Secretary Treasurer, is the longest standing employee of Grey Motors.  She has been Jerry's "right hand person" since he purchased Grey Motors in 1999.  She was actually here before Jerry, having worked for the previous owners of Grey Motors in administration. 

Even keeled, hard working, strong silent type, Paula is a truly dedicated and loyal employee of Grey Motors Mazda and we are lucky to have her.  She supports everyone in their role at the dealership.

Born and raised in Meaford Ontario herself, she wanted to raised her 3 beautiful children (Bruce, Janessa and Angela) in the area so they could experience all that Grey and Bruce Counties have to offer. 

For the last 15 years, she fondly calls Sam her "Partner in Crime" and enjoys spending time with him and her family & friends while away from work.

Her interests include Kayaking, camping , reading and going on long road trips in her Mazda demo that she loves.

"It brings me great satisfaction to see so many customers happy with their Mazda purchase and service experience.  I'm proud of all of our staff and the great job they do everyday for our customers."
