Welcome to South Trail Chrysler!
Hi, my name is Mike McManes and I am the Dealer Principal of South Trail Chrysler. We are a new dealership that opened our doors in February of 2016. We’re located near the community of New Brighton in the SE part of Calgary. The best way to find us is to look for the big Canadian flag on 130th Ave SE just east of 52nd Street!
We started operations with a management team of 14 and a staff of 80. Our initial management team was made up of a majority of Eastside Dodge staff members that I was fortunate enough to train over a couple of years while filling the role of General Manager at that dealership. I also feel fortunate to have built my career at Eastside Dodge being the flagship store of the McManes Automotive Group. We believe in promoting from within and I think it is pretty cool to say that most of us have worked together for well over 5 years despite our dealership only being open since 2016. We can offer opportunities that come with growth and we’re lucky to be able to look across all of our 19 dealerships for the right candidates to fill those opportunities.
At STC we have a culture of caring and excellence. We are a very tight knit group that share in extracurricular activities that are both supported by STC and not. Our staff have become great friends which is pretty sweet. Like any industry, we all spend a lot of our time at work so it’s important for it to feel like our second family.
I understand that family is number one to everyone and I’m proud to offer an environment where people can support and grow their family. One of our more fun events is the Kids Christmas Parties as we get to see everyone’s kids growing throughout the years.
South Trail Chrysler is one of three dealerships in the South Trail Auto Mall all belonging to the McManes Automotive Group. A benefit of the Auto Mall is that we can have joint events and different programs to bring the community together.
Thank you for the interest in working at South Trail Chrysler and if we both feel there is a fit I look forward to welcoming you to our family.
