Jerry Pfeil
President
519-662-1063

Jerry has been in the Automotive Business since he was 19. He put himself through the McMaster University Commerce Program while selling cars in the summer. After graduating from the Commerce program, he began his automotive career as an Assistant Sales Manager at a large GM dealership in Pickering Ontario and has never looked back. After several promotions and years of learning the business, he had the opportunity to purchase his own dealership, Grey Motors Pontiac Buick GMC, in Owen Sound, at the age of 32.   So, Jerry moved to Owen Sound with his wife and son and began his journey as a business owner.  After successfully running the GM dealership until the end of December of 2009, Jerry switched to Mazda in January 2010.  Now after successfully continuing to own and operate the Mazda store for 10+ years, Jerry is looking forward to the next chapter in his Automotive Career; helping to grow and manage the Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram dealership here in New Hamburg.  While there have been many changes over the years, one thing has remained; Jerry's commitment to providing his clients with honest, and trustworthy advice in their search for their automotive needs. It has served him and his family well for over 20 years in Owen Sound, and he is confident it will serve his clients well in New Hamburg also, for many years to come. 

Jerry, with his wife Mohana and their 2 sons, enjoy hockey, soccer and relaxing in his backyard on Sundays.  Jerry is a Super Proud Dad.  His oldest boy Jacob is a recent Graduate of McMaster University's Actuarial Science and Financial Math program and has recently accepted a position with Intact Insurance in Toronto.  His youngest son Lucas is chasing his hockey dreams as he plays for the Kitchener Rangers of the OHL.  Jerry is proud to say "my motivation in life comes from the example I want to set for my boys, they mean the world to me". 

When asked what the former customers of Haffner Motors can expect from Jerry Pfeil Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, Jerry responds...
 
"We will always value our customers time and business.  While some of the faces may be new, all of my staff are looking forward to taking care of your Automotive needs in a fair and straight forward approach that past customers have always been accustomed to with Haffner Motors. Our staff are just the same as you...good natured, honest, hard working Canadians, trying to provide for their families. Give us a try, you'll be glad you did."

Paula McGuinness
Secretary Treasurer

Paula, our Secretary Treasurer, is the longest standing employee of Grey Motors Mazda, our sister store in Owen Sound. She has been Jerry's "right hand person" since he purchased Grey Motors in 1999. She was actually there before Jerry, having worked for the previous owners of Grey Motors in administration. Now she is excited to share her years of experience with Jerry's new venture, Jerry Pfeil Chrysler in New Hamburg Ontario.  

She's even keeled, hard working, a strong silent type, Paula is a truly dedicated and loyal employee of Jerry Pfeil's and we are lucky to have her. She supports everyone in their role at the dealership. Born and raised in Meaford Ontario herself, she wanted to raise her 3 beautiful children (Bruce, Janessa and Angela) in the area so they could experience all that Grey and Bruce Counties have to offer. For the last 15 years, she fondly calls Sam her "Partner in Crime" and enjoys spending time with him and her family & friends while away from work. Her interests include Kayaking, camping , reading and going on long road trips in her Mazda demo that she loves. "It brings me great satisfaction to see so many customers happy with their purchase and service experience. I'm proud of all of our staff and the great job they do everyday for our customers."
