Bruce Christensen
New Vehicle Manager


My current ride:
GMC Sierra 1/2 ton Extended Cab 4x4. I own a 24' 5th wheel trailer and I love to get away fishing in my spare time, and my Sierra works perfectly for me. My wife drives an Acadia all wheel drive , and it works just great with packing her grandson around. We really enjoy the versatility it offers us with all its available seating and luggage space - It also gives us great fuel economy, so we really do feel it's the right ride for us.


My Number One goal to the customer:
My main focus for our customers is to provide them with the correct vehicle for their needs. I don't believe it is just about making a sale, but rather, it's about establishing a relationship that will last for years. The only way to accomplish this is by listening to understand what the client really needs, and then using our knowledge and experience to satisfy those needs.


Why Buy from Me?
With over 40 years in the automotive business, I must say that I enjoy it today as much as I did the day I started in 1972 - The fact you get to meet so many different people and get the opportunity to be involved in so many different situations make it challenging and rewarding everyday.


If I could witness any event - past, present or future - it would be:
There have been a few things in history that I think, gee, I wish I could have been there. One would be the 1972 Summit Series between Russia and Canada. I was fortunate enough to see it on TV, But could you imagine having been at those game in Russia ?!? Wow. And how about being in the Space Rocket that landed on the moon in 1969? I'm terrified of flying, but what thrill that would have been to step on the moon. No one else could really say, Oh, been there, done that!


If I could be any fictional character I would be:
I grew up watching Bugs Bunny and although we had an affection for so many of the characters, the one that I always got the biggest charge out of was good old Fog Horn Leg Horn. To this day I am guilty of doing poor imitations of Fog Horn,. " I say, I say "


Favorite Quote:
As far as having a " favorite " quote or inspiration message, I firmly believe if you treat people how you would like to be treated you will do alright. So far, this attitude has done quite well for me.


My Message to you:
I hope you have learned a little about me and would truly love to meet you in person one day.

Favorite Quote:

I grew up in East Central Alberta in a small farming community. I moved to Lethbridge on a whim and got a job at Davis GM as a Lot Attendant in Sept. 2006. I remained in the lot attendant position for just shy of two years before I graduated into the role of used car manager at the age of 22. With no prior experience in the car business I was thrilled at the opportunity and had many sleepless nights thinking about what the following day would bring. I married my wife Maegan in July of 2011. She has now completed her degree at the U of L and is a school teacher here in Lethbridge area. We our happily settled in Lethbridge both enjoying work and lovin life.


Why I love my job:
Eeveryday is a little bit different which keeps it interesting. I thoroughly enjoy my job and the car business in general, the people are what make the business most enjoyable. From staff, to customers to the working relations developed with other people in the business.

But best of all, after driving my brother crazy, my parents decided that making me walk a kilometer for each "offence" was an appropriate consequence. I can't even count how many kilometers I walked along the trans Canada highway that trip. But it was ALOT!! Oh to be a kid again :)
