    Steve Gonzalez
    Sales Director

    A native of Maryland, Steve, recently relocated to Naples, Florida to join the Germain Honda team, bringing over 20 years of experience in the automotive business, most recently as a General Manager of a dual franchise dealership.

    Starting as an entry-level lot attendant at the age of 16, Steve worked his way to General Manager, while holding every variable retail position within dealerships throughout the greater metropolitan area of Maryland. In less than 18 months, Steve and his team turned around an underperforming store, by focusing on inventory acquisition, pre-owned vehicle sales and certification, resulting in increased fixed operation revenue and overall store profitability.

    Steve is very passionate about providing clients with a fun, stress free and transparent car-buying experience. Aside from assisting clients, his day to day operational focus is inventory acquisition, talent requisition and coaching the next generation of Client Advisors while embracing the rapidly changing automotive industry.

    When not at the dealership, Steve spends his free time with his wife and daughter, on the golf course, or traveling. He always enjoys a good meal with friends and family, whether that is a dinner at the newest restaurant in town or hosting a dinner party while honing his culinary skills.

    Zack0ry helps people find the perfect car and always leaves them happy and satisfied.  He is fresh into the auto business and is warm welcoming, easy to talk to, non-pressuring, fast and efficient, and continues to better himself each month so he can give better customer satisfaction and it shows as his customers give 100% positive feedback.

    After various jobs right after high school for a short time, Zackory met his now manager and interviewed 2 days later resulting in the start of a new career at Germain Honda.

    He was given the name “SKIPPY”.  How & Why?  Overtime Zackory’s managers just gave him the name, thinking of a random name and matching up a face to it.  One manager started calling him that, the other manager followed and sure enough almost every manager started calling him Skippy.   Then it turned to his coworkers, so now whenever the name Skippy is called everyone knows that it’s Zackory.

    Zackory LOVES auto business.  He had never worked in a place where it isn’t only fun, but also enjoyable to go to.  He wakes up every morning energized and excited to go to work and it’s just a feeling he’s never had before starting to work at Germain Honda of Naples.

    Melissa started with Germain Motor Company in March 2006 as a title clerk, then moving to the corporate account payables/receivables.  After a year she was booking deals and learning all aspects of the accounting department.  Melissa quickly fell in love with the dealership process and continued to want to learn as much as she could, expanding her wide range of skills, helping her to arrive at the current position of Office Manager.

    She has a strong work ethic and handles multiple tasks at once.  The interaction with the staff members, and her people skills helps greatly when managing multiple different personalities.  Melissa feels having the correct people in certain key roles can only help with the growth of the brand and one’s own personal growth.  Learning something new every day means every day.

    In Melissa’s words, “Remember, we are all here as one team – be respectful of each other and always lend a helping hand when needed.”  Which shows her strong commitment to the Germain Motor Company family.

    Melissa’s family is number one in her life.  She is a huge animal lover – they are not just animals; they are her kids as well.
