We love our sales people at Morrie’s. They’re the reason we can say in business and thrive. Every year, as a group, we like to thank our sales people with a bit party that includes games, food trucks, Heritage car test drives, and prizes to let them know we appreciate their hard work. This year, as a special treat, the top-reviewed sales person from each store got to pick a manager or corporate employee of their choice to hit with a pie in the face! So thanks, sales staff of Morrie’s Auto Group! You’re all the best in the business!
Today we say farewell to a wonderful employee and friend, Carol Poulson. Carol has worked for Morrie’s Minnetonka Subaru for 8 years as a Sales Associate. We are so thankful for her dedication to our team. Carol is retiring and has plenty to look forward too after her time here at Morrie’s. We wish Carol all the best with her future endeavors and thank thank Carol for your 8 years of service here at Morrie’s!
February 23, 2013 saw the start to the second race of the Rally America National Championship Series in Salem, MO at 100 Acre Woods. This Rally is known to be one of the most scenic races in the series. The race got its name from the storybook home of Winnie the Pooh. The event takes place in the foothills of the Ozark Mountain range and is home to some of the tightest and fastest roads in the series. Every twist and turn puts the drivers ability to the test, including Lauchlin O’Sullivan and our own Scott Putnam from CPD racing.
They came into the event with a freshly built 2008 Subaru WRX STI backed by Lucas Oil, Wolf LED and Morrie’s Subaru. Even with the limited time in the new WRX STI rally car O’Sullivan and Putnam were able to place 1st in the Super Production class and 3rd overall.
Each year we acknowledge the top Sales Associates for 2012 at each of our stores during the Annual Sales Recognition Banquet. Today we want to introduce you to Lee Hintze, the top Sales Associate at our Minnetonka Kia store.
Rally Drivers recently ended their season by competing in Washington at Mt. Olympus for the 2012 Rally America National Championship. The championship titles included 2012 overall champion, rookie of the year, super production class, and two-wheel drive class champion.
Our own Scott Putnam has been a rally co-driver since 2001. His history includes training in Finland, placing 4th in the X Games in 2006 and racing alongside many famous Subaru USA Rally Teams. More >
