  • Tom Krusemark

    An accounting major and graduate of Concordia College, Tom never imagined that he would end up owning a car dealership. Together with his brother Joel, Tom took the entrepreneurial risk and has now been a car business owner for 27 years. His experience in sourcing quality vehicles from auctions around the nation drives inventory fitting your needs at the right price. He loves the hunt and hustle for the right car and ensuring client satisfaction with our products and service.

    In the time that the laptop gets closed and the phone set aside, Tom loves to relax at home on the lake with his wife and daughters, 3 spoiled cats, and a Miller Lite. He is quite the grilling connoisseur and prides himself in his vast knowledge of music, seeing if his family can name that tune. The place he finds the greatest relaxation and most revitalizing is Lake Tahoe, where the fresh pine air and snow powder is all Tom needs to enjoy some skiing. 

  • Hope Schmidt
    Social Media/Marketing Manager

    Although Hope started her career as an elementary teacher, she's finding it very interesting learning her own lessons within her social media/marketing position at Valu Ford & Chrysler. A self-proclaimed Facebook and Pinterest addict, she's having fun using her eye as a consumer to analyze the back end of online marketing. Between occasional visits to the dealership, Hope's in good company working from home alongside her furry feline friend, Archie.

    Hope and her husband enjoy their weekends at a little log lake cabin where she's greeted by sunrise yoga on the deck and coffee with a view. She brakes for yard sales and won't miss the chance to find hidden treasures to decorate her home at the flea market.
