Joe was born in Windsor, Ontario and grew up in what was then an automotive Mecca. He had family members working with each of the big three manufactures. His first job in the auto sector was working as a student in one of the Windsor Assembly Plants. After graduating with a Motive Power and Marketing Diploma he joined Ford of Canada, in Oakville Ontario. Six months later he was transferred to Vancouver and spent the rest of his Ford career there. Joe held positions in parts, service, fleet and sales. After 31 years Joe decided to change direction and join Magnuson Ford as our Dealer Operations Manager. If asked why Magnuson Joe would say it was/is because of their dedication to staff, customers and the community!
