Hello Capital Auto Group,

Happy New Year and thank you again for all the hard work in 2018. I look forward to our journey together in 2019. So here we are the first edition of Capital Connected. What is this? It is a way for Capital to get Connected. We think that you all have a lot of super stories to tell about the great things happening at each location of the Capital Automotive Group.

There are many individual accomplishments that need to get recognized, and many team triumphs too.  We wish to celebrate long term employees and welcome the new. We wish to tell stories of who makes the Capital Auto Group really work. Plus we want to tell you what’s going on around the corner. The first issue is a little longer because we wanted to get you caught up for last year. In future editions we hope you join us in telling a good news story from your corner of the Capital Auto Group.

See you soon,

Dan Broderick

Kelvin Singh

2018 brought a clean up of the Used Car Department with Adam Mohl taking over as Used Car Manager and tackling the ever growing and changing department.

Top Service Advisor

Melanie Caird

We had an up and down year in the Service Department at Capital writing just over 20,000 RO’s for the year servicing many new faces in the process. Our top advisor for the month of December with both the highest RO counts but also CSI is Melanie Caird. Melanie has been with Capital for 5 years and continues to prove that good customer service brings people back!

The Parts Department would like to welcome the “newest” member to the team.  Gord Moore has been with Capital for a few years in a few different roles but has recently moved to the Front Counter where he hopes to learn from the best to be the best.  Gord also is currently in contention for the best beard at Capital.

New Beginnings

Sam and Seher

December 2018 has brought some new faces to the Denaliville team but also meant some new beginnings in peoples lives.  We had Sam Nasrullah finally get to bring his wife Sheher over to Canada after a year apart just in time for all of us to meet her at the Christmas Party.

Jayden and Jessica

Jessica Inkpen got a wonderful holiday surprise when her boyfriend Jayden Couture popped the question… She said YES!!!  Jayden and Jessica also competed in the UGLY Toque contest and were the big winners. Congrats guys!!!

Sarah and Nekko

December also brings us closer to not having Sarah Leiterman around for a bit.  Sarah and her husband Nekko are expecting their first little one. Watch for pictures over the next couple issues.  We are all excited to meet little Lincoln!!

Year End Christmas Celebration

December’s social event was our Christmas Party.  Was a fantastic night full of laughter, fun, prizes and some great food!  Congrats to Matt Hagerman who won the trip to Mexico this year…Jealous!! Thanks to Brittany and Cara for planning and hosting the evening.

Too bad this wasn’t a video newsletter as we have a great video of our CEO Dan in a dance off for the opportunity for his table to go eat! (Stay tuned for the video release in the next issue of Capital Connected.)

Hope everyone had a great holiday!

Note from the Mayor

Jan and the Mayor

2018 was a great year in Denaliville.  Many new faces joined our family and with every one of you came a new energy and enthusiasm for serving our customers.  We had many successes over the year; Both Service and Sales CSI well above zone, personal records being set in sales, hours and RO’s, and most of all a year where we can look back with pride knowing we did our best every day for the customers that trust us!  With all of the turbulent news surrounding the Alberta economy and General Motors right now, our customer experience is what will continue to raise us above the rest, and that’s all of you! Great job!!

From my family to yours, I look forward to 2019 where we can continue to define what it truly means to belong to Denaliville!
