Stephen Dumperth

Stephen Dumperth | Sales Manager

My career in the auto industry began fresh out of high school in 1998. The journey lead me from sales to finance, and then to sales management. From 2003 to 2014, my only joy was in seeing my sales people succeed. Then it clicked: I missed building relationships with customers; I missed having the ability to make people happy; I missed sales! I am so very proud to be working at the best dealership in all the land!
