    Jim is the longest standing Sales Consultant at Premier Mazda and was here even before we purchased the store in March 2015. I'm sure his large customer base can agree, he was one of the best assets that came with the store! The past several years, Jim has won Mazda's Top Sales Performers' trip.

  • Jessica Ducre
    Sales Consultant

    Jessica is warm, helpful and professional. You have a 50% chance of working with Jessica if you submit an online inquiry about a vehicle. She hustles around the dealership getting information for customers that aren't quite ready to make the trip to Premier Mazda. Her goal is to gain enough product and sales knowledge to transition to the sales floor in the near future.

  • Lisa Graham
    Service Advisor

    Service customers LOVE Lisa! She's friendly, will keep you updated on your vehicle service and make sure you have the most accurate information about your vehicle's warranty, recalls and service needs. Her smile is just as inviting as her candy drawer (just ask her for a piece, she doesn't eat it - just keeps it for other people).
