A day without laughter is a day wasted! This sums up how I feel about many things, including my automotive career. Prior to joining the Donnelly's in 1989 I owned a restaurant in Quebec and learned I loved working with the public. Who knew when I responded to a salesperson ad in the newspaper I would end up being here this long, and work my way up to the position of General Sales Manager? I've worked with all the franchises the Donnelly's own, groomed many staff, but most importantly I’ve realized we don’t sell cars, the reality of our business is that we establish relationships for life. Whenever I’m in any of the dealerships, I find myself greeting customers that I've known for nearly 20 years. My love for soccer must come from my home city of Lisbon, Portugal where my favorite team, Benfica, plays. When I’m not at work and not watching soccer, my passion is skiing and snowboarding with my family. I am happy to serve you in English, French, Portuguese, Italian, and SpanishA day without laughter is a day wasted! This sums up how I feel about many things, including my automotive career.

There is a great expression, “find a job you like and you will never have to work a day in your life.” For me, I found that job in the car industry. I joined the Donnelly Automotive Group over 29-years-ago and was welcomed by the Donnelly’s as a business partner in 1997. Donnelly Ford Lincoln prides itself as one of the top retailers of Fords and Lincolns in Ottawa and leaders in Customer Satisfaction. I am very proud of the professional teams at all of our dealerships. They live by our Vision Statement: “Donnelly Ford Lincoln is a fully engaged team of professionals working together to create a truly exceptional Customer Experience.” I look forward to “working” the next 20 years. Outside of my job, I enjoy watching my four adult children grow up. I love to run, play squash, ski (both downhill and Nordic), and attempt to play golf.There is a great expression, “find a job you like and you will never have to work a day in your life.” For me, I found that job in the car industry.

Ottawa born and raised! I attended St. Pius high school and Carleton University before making my way into the world of sales -- The Bay, Futureshop, Bell Mobility and Sensus Communications are all on my resume. An opportunity to work in the auto industry was perfect for someone who has always loved cars and has owned twelve different vehicles in his driving life! Outside of work I am an avid sports fan, frequenting Ottawa Senators games and of course the Ottawa RedBlacks too. You might also find me at my family cottage on the big Rideau Lake swimming, canoeing or even sailing!Ottawa born and raised!

Born and raised in Ottawa and it only took me 30 years to find the job I love. I joined Donnelly Ford Lincoln in February 2017 and feel like I found home. Our team is focused on delivering the best customer experience and creating Donnelly fans for life. We understand nothing happens until we sell or service a vehicle and those customers are our business. I am very proud of the team I work with and lucky to work for ownership that lives by our Vision Statement: “Donnelly Ford Lincoln is a fully engaged team of professionals working together to create a truly exceptional customer and employee Experience.” I look forward to having the opportunity to serve our customers and please call me direct with any questions or feedback as nothing is more important than our customer’s voice. I bring 30 years of senior management and marketing (traditional and digital) experience in both Ottawa and Toronto, including the NHL / Ottawa Senators, daily newspapers, community newspapers, shoppers and a national newspaper. I am passionate about the community I live in and I am proud to serve as Vice Chair to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario Foundation along with several other volunteer roles. I have been married to my high school sweet heart for 28 years and have two great kids / adults, Alexandra and Curtis. We enjoy outdoors activities in our spare time including skiing, golfing, cycling and walking our dog Alfie!Born and raised in Ottawa and it only took me 30 years to find the job I love.
