Trenton Gregory
Sales Manager
503-836-7944

Trenton is a fairly new additon to the very seasoned St. Helens Sales Management team.  Trenton comes to us all the way from Longview, WA.  A native of Longview, Trenton prefers the tone of smaller town life.  When you get to know Trenton this makes perfect sense.  A quiet, earnest man, Trenton loves his SeaHawks, good old fashion pets (like his golden retriever), a nice float in a pool and most importantly...his wife and three kids.  He considers work a good hobby and finds satisfaction  interacting with co-workers and customers.  We feel lucky to have him cross the river to join us everyday!

Frank Celentano
Used Car Manager
503-836-7944

If you have met many Used Car Managers, you know they tend to be a bit crusty and fast talkers!  Not our Frank.  This is a man with music in his heart.  Literally! He has been a guitar player since the age of ten AND a professional musican and recording artist since 18.  Frank has an eye for metal and an ear for the lyrical.  He feels his position at the dealership and his love for music are not all that dis-similar.  Frank feels both of his vocations are not jobs, but rather a part of him.  He thrives on relating to people and telling a story by touching on emontion.  Probably the best way to understand this charming Renaissance Man is to listen to his music OR drive one of his hand selected quality pre-owned vehicles

William Hatton
Compliance & CIT Manager
503-836-7944

Wil loves to be outdoors, especially with his family.  He brings the peace and calm back to the dealership.  Wil moved to Columbia City when he moved to St. Helens Auto Center, four years ago.  Wil has a genuine heart and truly cares about his customers.  He is a mentor to many of our new employees.  Wil's words to live by:  "The Master has failed, more times than the student has tried."  A life long "car guy" Wil likes to make automotive dreams happen one vehicle at a time.

Hello everyone, I am Tracee. I have been in and out of the auto industry for 20 years doing everything from finance, accounting, to now processing warranty claims.

Parts

Mike Laramee
Parts and Accessory Manager
503-836-7944

Mike is our Parts and Accessory Guru. Mike is a big presence at St. Helens Auto Center. A creative French Canadian with a solution for just about any perdicament. Mike is always available to lend a helping hand, a great idea, a kind word or a bad joke. Maybe it is because he is a kid at heart. Which is great as Mike has the vision to complete the style of any vehicle to fit the needs of the owner.


Stop by the parts counter and say hi! Mike is always here. The man has no concept of time off, unless it is to spend a bit of time camping with his wife and son, OR "pet a dog on fire" (his quote, not ours)
