Hello, my name is Bill Green. I joined the Automotive Avenues team in June of 1998 as the President/General Manager. Transferring from Dallas, Texas to Colorado was a wonderful change for my family and I. My wife Deena and I have 3 children.

My style and approach to the car business is and has always been customer centered. I bring with me many years of experience in the auto industry. I have always felt that if I can really help someone get what they needed, then I would have better luck creating a customer for life. I also know that it takes a team effort to achieve these lofty targets and I am a big supporter of team and community.

Establishing best business practices to create the “Raving Fan’s” of Automotive Avenues is where my focus is today. I know that when a win/win situation is established with the processes we have put in place, then establishing that customer for life is not very far away!

Hi, my name is Cheryl Mensch and I joined the Automotive Avenues family in 1995.

I was honored to come on board because we share a common philosophy. We genuinely care about the people who have entrusted us with the task of finding the best solution to their automotive needs. I don’t like pressuring people and neither does Automotive Avenues. Nothing excites me more than when a customer expresses with sincerity how much they have enjoyed their car-buying experience and their enthusiasm to share their experience with others.

I fell in love with Colorado on my first ski trip here and decided it would eventually be my home. The opportunity arose in 1992 when Hurricane Andrew gave me a helping hand out here. Although I miss the ocean, I take advantage of our mountains as much as possible with skiing in the winter and hiking year round with my two dogs Roscoe and Kayla.

One of my other passions is scuba diving, which unfortunately is not easily accessible here in Colorado, but has allowed me to sit as a board of director for the “Save the Blue Foundation”, an organization that tackles conservation issues by providing solutions to the global marine community.

Now you know a little about me and why I love Colorado and Automotive Avenues. I have been associated with the automotive industry for many years and would be honored to assist you in the research and purchase of your next vehicle.

Hello, my name is Christian Spangler. I joined the Automotive Avenues team in July, 2010.

My first buying experience with Auto Avenues was so amazing, I decided to leave the restaurant industry and take a new career path as a sales consultant. The consultant who assisted me at Auto Avenues made it so simple that I did some research on positions within the company and four months later here I am working for them. I have more then ten years of customer service experience and plan to utilize many of those skills to help provide my members with the best car buying experience possible, the Auto Avenues way. I look forward to helping each and every member I work with have the same great experience I had.

Outside of the office, when I'm not chasing around my two children, I try to enjoy all that out great state has to offer. I enjoy golfing, skiing and being outdoors as much as possible. After growing up in New Jersey and completing my degree in upstate New York, Colorado has truly become my home.

Hi my name is Dan Krofta and I came to the Auto Aves consultant team in April of 2004 after moving here from South Carolina. I grew up in Racine, Wisconsin with three brothers and two sisters. As a family we used to camp in Canada and fish in the south when vacation time would allow. When I have time off, you can usually find me doing some sort of outdoor activity or taking a trip to see the family.

Automotive Avenues has allowed me to work in a place that lets me be myself and truly give the customer service that the members deserve. Being able to work in a “no pressure” atmosphere is important to me and to my customers. Members like how my style of selling cars is so easy going, and my willingness to listen and offer a variety of ideas to help them find vehicles they are looking for. It’s nice to be able to work for a company that believes in this style of service and backs it up with the services they offer.

Hi, I’m Duane Talada. I just joined the Automotive Avenues staff this past March, 2011. I’m originally from Rochester, NY. After visiting Colorado just once and falling in love with it, I moved here by myself in February 1978, without knowing one person in Denver. And now, many years later, I have two beautiful daughters, and four very fun-loving grandchildren.

Most of my 12 years experience in the automotive business has been in service management. I’ve always placed the highest priority on honor and integrity in both business and personal relationships, and I’m proud to have found a car dealership that shares that philosophy.

Cars are a very personal possession, and purchasing one should be exciting and fun, not something you dread going through.  When I’m searching for a vehicle for my customers, I find myself looking for something I’d be comfortable putting a member of my own family in. I’d be honored to help you or your family find the vehicle you're searching for.

Hello, my name is Jerry McKay. In my youth I spent my days in Wheatridge area and now that I am a father, I am raising my two boys in Lakewood. I was introduced to Auto Aves when I purchased a vehicle for my real estate business. The experience was so good that when it came time for a career change, I thought of Auto Aves immediately. When a smooth and effortless transaction sticks with you, there is really no other choice of where to go. So in February of 2005, I became an official Auto Aves consultant.

My style of consulting is a low pressure, easy-going and a confident approach to help my members discover what they would like to accomplish for their transportation needs. My goal is to provide the best service for my members so they will tell all their friends and family about their experience.

That is why I always take friendly, no haggle approach and focus my attention to the customers needs and wants to make the experience as pleasurable and satisfactory as possible. I look forward to meeting and working with each and every one of you and proving to you that buying a car can actually be enjoyable.

Hello, I am Tami Myers. I joined the Automotive Avenues sales team in 1994 to pursue a new direction after working in an office setting for nine years. The first car I ever owned was a 1989 Nissan 200SX, which I drove for six years. In all that time, the only thing I didn’t like about it was the fact that it had no air conditioning (lol).

As native of Colorado, I spend most of my time either caring for my dogs and cats, working in my garden or roller blading. I also has a very close relationship with my family.

At work, I take every opportunity to have fun. I care about people and treat members the way I like to be treated, with patience and respect. I also know how important it is to listen and members appreciate my attentive ear. I invite you to give me a call if you are researching your next vehicle, I would be happy to help you find the car of your dreams.
