Jerry  Pfeil
Jerry Pfeil
President and Dealer Principle

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.
