Ryan Stephens, Sales and Leasing Consultant, Johnson Motor Sales, New Richmond, WI
What made you initially interested to work at Johnson Motors? A long-term career. I was a Police Officer for a couple of years and met the owner one morning and the rest was history.
How have you professionally grown over the past 15 years? My quality of service and my smile has gotten better.
In looking back, have you seen many changes over those years? The internet has changed the auto buying experience. The vehicles themselves have changed drastically too. When I started we had note cards to write customers’ information on them. I also have a flip phone too…now smartphones only work in the vehicles!
