Meet Our People

These are the people who make Ziems Ford great.  We all have different personalities and are unique in our own way.  As different and unique as we are, we all come together to accomplish the same goal.  That goal is to provide an experience that will encourage our customers to return willingly and to share their positive experience with others no matter where they are in the dealership.  As hard as we try, we may not always get it right.  However, if we don’t, we will make it right.  These are our people.  This is why Ziems Ford is great.
