"I started out working at Bay City Chevrolet in Bay City in 1973 and while being laid off, went to work at Gettel in Sebewaing part time detailing cars until my job at Chevrolet was no longer available. I then went to work full time at Gettel detailing cars and in 1978, I began selling cars and worked my way up to sales manager and eventually was moved to Reese in 1987 as General Manager of Gettel Chevrolet Buick. I bought in as a partner of Jim Gettel in 1990, and purchased the store from him in 2005 and renamed the store Keyser Chevrolet Buick. Robin Linzner and Tony Orlick came to Reese with me from Sebewaing in 1987 and are still with me today. Robin is the office manager and Tony is the parts manager.
I love the automotive business, my employees and customers and also enjoy boating and the game of golf in my free time."
