While Dale Wurfel Chrysler Dodge Jeep may be a family run business, Josh considers all of the staff to be part of an extended family. That's one reason why Josh loves his job as the Pre-Owned vehicle sales Manager as it allows him to interact with employees from all corners of the dealership, whether it be helping a fellow sales person close a deal, organize a vehicle clean with the detailing department, or get service to take care of a safety on a lot vehicle.
Josh also takes part in running the social media outlets of the dealership including the Facebook, Youtube and Instagram channels.
Josh is responsible for an inventory of approximately 60 to 75 pre-owned vehicles, many of which are low kilometer late year models, and are competitively priced through the use of V-Auto, a pricing tool that uses information pulled from over 40,000 different automotive websites to ensure the Dale Wurfel inventory is priced correctly to market. He collaborates with the service manager and the technicians to facilitate the rigorous 150-point inspection and reconditioning process that each vehicle undergoes to ensure it meets high standards. He also ensures via checklist that each vehicle is thoroughly cleaned inside & out by the detailing department before the vehicle hits the lot.
The other reason why Josh enjoys spending time at the dealership is because he's one hardcore car guy. An enthusiast for all things cars, Josh is especially an aficionado for exotics and 'super/hyper'-cars. Josh has the opportunity to drive all sorts of Mopar vehicles, including high-end performance and customized ones. His own vehicle always being something unique. He also has a vast amount of knowledge of them. Josh has attended The Canadian Automotive Institute at Georgian College in Barrie and
he also recently completed the North American Automotive Sales Success Academy 'Sales Champion' training and his OMVIC certification. In September of 2018, Joshua graduated from the prestigious NADA Academy in Washington DC. The year long program helps groom Josh to run his very own dealership one day!
When it comes to local car shows, charity events, golf tournaments, or anything community related, Josh is there to make sure the nicest cars are there to be displayed and that anyone's questions about them or others are answered. Also having a passion for automotive photography, he is there to take and post plenty of pictures from most events.
For fun, Josh hangs out with his beautiful daughter, collects, paints and customizes diecast cars, goes "airsofting", hangs out with his buddies, plays video games and cruises around to cool places in his car.
