In this month’s featured blog post, we wanted to take a moment to highlight one of our fantastic Finnin team members!  Meet Curtis Edler, our newest Sales Manager.  We sat down and asked Curtis a few questions about his personal and professional experiences, what led him into sales, and also challenged him with a “Why Finnin?” query – take a peek at what he had to say below!

Why do you enjoy working at Finnin Ford?

In my time here so far, I have really enjoyed everyone’s sense of humor. I like the small dealership feel where everyone knows, and helps, everyone out.

What did you do for a living prior to Finnin?

I spent the last 17 years in the car business starting as a salesman, assistant manager, internet manager, finance manager and sales manager.

What are some of your hobbies?

I like a little bit of everything, cooking, video games, watching football, playing with my kids, home renovations.

Most of my close friends are still in Arizona, but we moved back to be closer to my family. My parents and two of my brothers still live in the area. We usually just end up hanging out at one of our houses around the kitchen table or bonfire.

Where are you from?

I grew up I Lena, IL, about an hour east of Dubuque, until I was 19, then moved to Arizona for the last 17 years. I just moved back in June.

What do you love about Dubuque?

I haven’t spent much time in Dubuque outside of work, but the 4th of July fireworks were pretty awesome. Aside from that, I do love the hills, lots of green and the River.  I have also enjoyed a lot of the summer programs in Lena for my kids so far.

Finnin employees will have the opportunity to wear jeans to work on “Friday Jeans Days” now through the end of the year. How it works: Employees wishing to go casual for a cause will pay $5 each Friday for the privilege of wearing their favorite pair of denim jeans all day long. Every dollar they donate will be collected and given to a local charity to assist families in need.

August is here and for Iowa students, that means it’s time to head back to school. We at Finnin Ford know that the back to school rush can be an exciting yet stressful time for parents, teachers and students alike. However, there are a few ways to eliminate that stress factor, and help with the transition.
