Jack joined his dad's dealership in 1970 and was quickly shown to be a natural in the automotive business. His success at building a wonderful family and business stem from an innate ability to win friends and influence people. His close relationship with the manufacturers has led to a unique perspective on the world of auto sales. On his down time he is an avid golfer and loves to travel. More than anything is proud of what Sill-TerHar has become, and values that his entire family can be involved in it's continued growth. He is pictured here with his wife Penny.
Jeff joined Sill-TerHar in 2007. He worked his way from salesman to finance manager to selling oil rigs to sales manager. One of those was not with Sill-TerHar. Climbing the corporate ladder is easy for Jeff as he is 5 foot 19 inches tall, so he's pretty much already at the top before he starts. Do you wonder what Jeff looks like when he's been surprised? He looks like this.
Bobby has been with the dealership for long enough that I can't remember a time without him. A long time local, he moved from sales, to finance, to management. We're all very proud he made it to management, but also a little surprised. I've promised him that as long as we work together, I'll never let him forget his little mishap at the company golf tournament, so many years ago. Fortunately Bobby survived, and now he's in charge of other people.
Shane started at Sill-TerHar in 2005. Growing up in Broomfield Shane used to look longingly at the great working environment that was Sill-TerHar and vowed that one day he'd be top salesman there. Little did he know that was not to be, so he became a manager. Also, interesting side note, he went to middle school with my wife, but you don't know me... so maybe that's just interesting to me.
Robert came to Sill-TerHar in 2005 via Hawaii and he brought the famous island personality with him. The only thing Robert does better than making friends is golfing. His prodigious skills make him very popular among those playing in charity golf tournaments. Also, if you want to make your car buying experience extra special, ask him for his chili recipe, it's wonderful.
1962 Lincoln Continental
Steve joined the dealership so long ago that I forgot to ask him how long ago, but it's been a while. When he's not helping customers with all of their luxury car needs, he absolutely loves relaxing on a lazy river with his fly rod. I once asked him about what makes fishing great... It was a mistake. He used many words I don't understand, like jibber, flytie, corkscrew casting, and a few more that I'm pretty sure are curses. He loves to tell people about his most intense experience catching a fish, and he shows us his pictures of it. Also, he has a passion for the Colorado Rockies, so we know he doesn't mind being sad. Finally, here's a picture I took when he didn't know I was taking his picture.
Molly has been at Sill-TerHar in one form or another since 2007. She has 5 members of their family that celebrate birthdays on a holiday, which means none of them were born on Easter, or Thanksgiving, since those are moving targets. She's a proud grandma, and is learning to drive 4-wheelers, which I took to mean driving on 4 wheels, but was quickly corrected. Finally, and I hesitate to say this, but she's very much into... "girly stuff". I'll let you imagine what that means.
Our amazing Quick Lane manager got here in 2004 and quickly started winning the hearts of our customers. When he's not remembering customers' names, or being firm, but fair with his employees, Mitch loves to fall off of motorcycles that are way up in the air. To be fair, I don't think the intent is to fall off, but he definitely intends to jump the motorcycle way up high. The falling thing may be because he's not very good. Or the inherent risk of falling that comes with motocross. I would be remiss not to mention the great love he has for his amazing family as well, and he'd be grumpy at me for excluding them.
Ted started in 2007 and runs the greatest body shop I've ever had the pleasure of visiting. Also, the only body shop, but it remains a hidden gem here at Sill-TerHar. Ted's soft spoken demeanor leaves those around him smiling regularly, and the old pricing board with movable lettering, means that those of us who are a bit more mischievous can give his charm a more southern feel by offering his customers an iced tea.
Steve started in 2013, he's our Mazda parts guy, and sits in a small blue room with a window that is reminiscent of a drive through window. I keep hoping that he'll put on a turban and do an impression of Zoltan from the movie Big, I think he could pull it off in his little blue room. When he's not telling fortunes, Steve enjoys woodworking, he builds all sorts of great things out of wood, like this table, these eating implements, or this chair.
Mike joined Sill-TerHar in 2013, here he can be pictured in deep thought while finding someone their perfect car. He's a thinker. In his free time he enjoys being funny, making people laugh is really a passion for him. Honestly, he's never made ME laugh, but I'm a tough nut to crack. I've been told that he very much enjoys it when people ask him to say something funny. Because he didn't get me anything for his bio, I'm having to wing it a bit, but I'm pretty confident he's of British descent, given his fair skin and almost hairless face.
Angela came to Sill-TerHar by way of Mesa State College in 2002. She is a consistent top performer and excels at customer care and follow up. Now that we have the appropriate accolades out of the way, it's worth noting that she may have some relation, maybe marital, to someone else on this page. I'm not saying who.
She couldn't come up with one, so a group decision chose the 1986 Merkur xr4ti. It was probably a bad choice.
Paulo came to us in 2015 from France. He was probably in America before he came to us, because he has hardly any accent, but when you talk to him, you can absolutely tell he still got some of that old French "charm" in him. Here he's jumping for joy in front of a British car, but that doesn't make him British, just very excitable. Like a guinea pig who's been chewing on coffee grounds. He has a picture on his desk of a very fancy looking motorcycle in front of a rhinoceros. I asked him if it was his, and he said no, it's just motivation. I think it's awesome to have a goal, but I honestly don't know what he'll do with a rhinoceros.
Most of us pronounce Jeff's last name Cal-eez, but he says Cuh-lees. He's been at Sill-TerHar since 2010 and is a lover of adrenaline sports. He bikes with his son Jacob (which I misunderstood to mean that he jumped over his son Jacob with his bike), snowboards (although at his age, it hurts a lot) and raced motorcycles for 23 years. He's also told me that if we would fund him, he'd race cars now. He doesn't race cars now.
1985 Toyota MR2
Kevin joined Sill-TerHar in 2014... and 2015. You see, he saw greener pastures, then realized that the pastures were actually the swimming pools at the Rio Olympics when they turned all green. We're glad to have him back as his infectious laugh can be heard throughout the showroom, any time he's watching cat videos on YouTube. He is a licensed (or maybe not, I didn't ask for that level of detail) hypnotherapist, so if you'd like to stop smoking, or cluck like a chicken, while buying your car, he's your guy. It was suggested that he would use his powers to influence the negotiation process, but don't worry, he's not a Jedi.
Had Ted Knepp been hired first, I would assume that Ted wanted an employee much like himself, kind, easy going, and friendly. But that's not the case, Eric signed on just before Ted, also in 2007. He is the Robin to Ted's Batman, the Sherman to Ted's Mr. Peabody, the Incrediboy to Ted's Mr. Incredible (only without the whole turning into the arch nemesis and trying to destroy the world thing...). When he's not working hard Eric really enjoys relaxing at home playing video games and undoubtedly arguing with 14-year olds who think that Eric is a giant n00b.
John has been with Sill-TerHar for many years. Sadly, not all in a row. Fortunately for us, he realized that this truly is the best place to sell cars on the front range, so he's back and ready to pick up where he left off... although he's selling Fords now, not Mazdas, but it's the same idea. The awesome background of this photo is simply some really bright poster board that I had in my office. Please know that none of our dealership looks like that.
2011 Ford Mustang GT500
Greg started at Sill-TerHar on December 7th, 2009. He's an avid golfer and whenever he can he enjoys travelling the country in his RV with his wife. He proudly points out that his RV is on a Ford chassis. He did not mention how many TVs the RV has, and we all know that TVs are the true measure of an RV. Well... TVs and bathrooms.
1974 MGB GT
Chris started at Sill-TerHar in 2014ish. In a twist on the old classic, he enjoys long naps on the beach. He's from Georgia. The country, or maybe the state. He likes the Bulldogs. The football team, or maybe the animal. He very much enjoys walking up mountains, and sailing down lakes. He stressed that he and his family love to ski everywhere. I'm not sure how that works in the summer, but it would explain why he's always sweaty, out of breath, and carrying the gnarliest pair of rock skis I've ever seen when he gets to work every morning. If I had to describe him, I'd say that he's a combination of a Chihuahua and a really skinny slightly shorter Andre The Giant.
Troy started working with us in 2016. He's sold cars for a long time, but he's just now found the best place to sell cars. Unfortunately it costs a lot of money to move to Maui. So he found the best place in Colorado to sell cars. Us. We're the best place in Colo.... Never mind. When I think about all the things I really know about Troy, the one that stands out is that he has a best friend that he's known since 3rd grade. I met him the other day. His name is Eric.
Nick stumbled upon us in 2016. He's a super happy guy who hails from Hawaii. That heritage is reflected in his last name. Karichkowsky. It's awful to spell, and probably not actually Hawaiian. Rumor is it's Polish, which also explains his happiness. The Poles are a very happy people. Nick seems very proud of his history as a rugby player at CU, so if you see him running at you out on the lot, it may not hurt to duck behind a car. As I was taking his picture, he decided to show me that his hands were bigger than his face.
Chloe joined Sill-TerHar in 2016. She knew people here before she started working, so I think she spent some time in Broomfield. She also loves dinosaurs, raptors specifically. Not the tiny, over-hyped Velociraptor, but the WAY cooler Utahraptor. She was afraid that her photo would be too Christmassy with that scarf on, but I told her that I would point out that she's just really loves candy canes... year round. She also worked on a yacht! I didn't ask what she did, but my money is on propeller. She seems to have VERY strong legs.
Angela is one of our excellent Volvo advisors. She is amazing at taking care of her customers, keeping her desk a cluttered mess, and breaking her computer is very interesting ways. If you are working her, be sure to check out her tiny rubber pig that sits on her desk. He's adorable. Also, he's not real. Just some sort of rubber substance.
Jerry hopped on the Sill-TerHar bandwagon in 2014. When asked for a tidbit of information for a quick bio he got a bit jumpy. He gave a very convincing response regarding his love of karaoke and his particular inclination for Bon Jovi and other hairbands. That was his big giveaway, because everyone knows that no one sings the Scorpions at karaoke. So I did some digging and found nothing about him before 2007. I think it stands to reason that Jerry is in the government's witness protection program and can't tell us that he is actually the once presumed dead Joe Pesci. I asked him to do his best North by Northwest impression and he told me he didn't know what that meant, so I told him to look like he was running scared from a plane, this was the result.
Mitch joined us in 2012. He prides himself on his unique look, a vast knowledge of Ford parts, and when asked what people like about him, his response was, "I'm awesome." Then, and I'm not making this up, he stuck his beard in his mouth. I walked away both impressed, and a little confused.
Taylor has been selling cars with us since 2016. I call the smoldering look in his profile picture, "Blue Steel". He claims that he's nothing more than a homebody, but a little digging led me to discover that he loves the arts, in particular movies, in particular, movies with Meryl Streep, in particular, Florence Foster Jenkins. He insists that it's about way more than just some lady who doesn't sing well. I haven't seen it, so I'll just stick with my misguided belief that it's really about nothing. He's not a big Jackson Pollock fan. I like Jackson Pollock.
Arlene joined us in 2013... or may be 2014, I honestly don't remember. She came to us from a background in luxury sales and is a wonderful addition to the team. She's been in the Broomfield area for many years, which is a great real plus because it means she very rarely gets lost on the way to work.
Scott Peterson has been here since 2015. He has a deep passion for cars, in fact his current Subaru WRX has 5 turbochargers that he installed himself, although 4 of them are mounted on the trunk like a spoiler. Liking cars doesn't make you good at modifying them. He loves his family (I had to put that there because I'm nice.). When I asked him what his hobbies are, he said he does NOT skydive. It really wasn't a very good answer as it didn't tell me anything about what he likes to do. When he was asked about his love for shearing sheep, the giant grin and silence spoke volumes. My guess is that he loves to knit. Or he finds naked sheep as funny as I do.
Bryan joined Sill-TerHar in 2010 as
half a third a quarter of our always growing special finance team. His role is to match people with cars that they love, as well as loans they can afford that may help them improve their credit. He is a dad above all else, but won't stop telling hunting stories, so one has to believe that's a passion for him. Bryan doesn't like his picture taken so I drew him... I'm not much of an artist, sorry. Also, he's older than it looks in his picture, but again, I can't draw.
1968 Ford Mustang
Sam came to Sill-TerHar by way of... somewhere... in 2014. He's a quiet, slightly mysterious guy who often reminds me of a very powerful wizard who doesn't want anyone to know his true identity. He enjoys light off-roading. Which I'm guessing translates to driving on dirt roads. When I asked what light off-roading meant, he said, "No cliffs". Apparently he's afraid of heights. Not what I would expect from a wizard. At one point he married his wife. They are still married. To each other.
Pam started as a service adviser in Ford many moons ago. I won't say exactly when, because it's impolite to speak of a woman's age. Many of us at the dealership see her as the mom of the store, in fact, for one of us, she is ACTUALLY mom. But it's not the kind of mom who brings your hot cocoa when you're sick, it's more like the mom that yells across the school yard that you can wear your Batman undies tomorrow, because they're clean now.
Ty got here in 2016, and now helps those with credit troubles get back on their feet and set a path for a better financial future. When I asked him what was interesting about himself he said he loves the outdoors and his family. I told him that wasn't nearly interesting enough, and asked if he'd ever killed someone. He said no. So... Good for him! I do know that he makes world renowned honey. It may only be dealership renowned. (OK, I've made some calls, turns out that a couple people know he makes honey, but they agreed it was very good local honey.)
Zayne started in 2014 and proved so successful in the Mazda drive that he was moved to the Volvo drive, which is way more inside than Mazda. Now he gets cold less. He's got a passion for customers and his family. However, Zayne's family has been asked not to also be customers for the simple reason that we're afraid the passion would become so strong, that Zayne may not be able to handle it. I imagine the expression of such passion would be akin to that of a soccer fan whose team has just won the World Cup, or perhaps an 8-year old who just got the action figure he's been pining for.
Steve Theurer (we pronounce it Thoy-er, you're just going to have to trust me on this one) joined Sill-TerHar so long ago that I'm pretty sure he's had time to have a daughter, raise said daughter, and have her being working at Sill-TerHar in the service department. Not an impressive feat if she's 10, but she's not, she's mostly an adult. In his free time he's a member of Westminster Optimists club, which leaves him smiling all the time, and never concerned about half a glass of milk. He also likes to make his own wine, which I'm told tastes very much like alcohol.
Dean joined Sill-TerHar in 2005 already a grisled, but remarkably friendly, fleet specialist. He works with many professional workers associations and businesses. In his spare time he doesn't play on the company softball team because he says it takes him too long to get his glove to the ground and is a Poudre Wilderness Patrol and Weld Country Sheriff's Posse volunteer.
Del has been at Sill-TerHar since 2007. I don't really know how else to say this, but when I asked him for a little bio information about himself he said, it would probably just be a bunch of profanity. This being a kid friendly bio section, I'm going to do the best I can with his more cherished accomplishment... I once &%*@!& a !&!*( in the *$&%&@ !*!@#&$ cargo hold of a *@&^%&@& @! C-130.
Koko did not get his name because of his love of hot chocolate. Turns out that it's just easier to pronounce than his real name, Kaloyan. He joined Sill-TerHar in 2014, but he joined the USA in 2011. In this picture you can see him at the Denver Auto Show with a Lamborghini Huracan. He's very proud that he was allowed to stand next to the car, which is why you can barely see him in the photo.
I must confess I added the ellipses for effect, Bill's last name is Zimmerer and a lot of people miss the other er. Bill's been trying to remind people of his second er since 2013 here in Broomfield. He's a great salesman who once played almost professional football for the Chicago Stars. He likes to remember those days through the display of his great old helmet that sits behind him on his desk. From the looks of the helmet, Bill got tackled plenty.
