Tim Berry celebrates 10 years of community leadership

Berry marked his 10-year anniversary at Aspen Ford on Thursday, April 20 with staff, clients and community members.

A community leader and dealer principal of Stettler’s Aspen Ford, Tim Berry marked his 10-year milestone with his staff, clients and community members on Thursday, April 20 to a packed Ford facility as people came out to congratulate and celebrate with him.

Having started as a technician with Ford in 1995, Berry completed his Masters in technician training and then moved on to be a service manager in 2003.

After running the service for three years, he decided to learn the sales side of the business so Berry took a position as a sales manager.

“And when the opportunity arose to purchase the dealership I decided it was the next logical step in my career,” Berry said. “So we took over on Dec. 11, 2006 and are still here 10 years later, really enjoying the work in and for the community of Stettler.”

Berry said that he moved to Stettler first because the dealership was for sale and he was at the time looking for a small town to call home.

“Ten years later we feel we could not have made a better choice as Stettler is an amazing place to live and work,” Berry added.

When he first took over, Berry faced a few small challenges as the transition of staff to a new owner was hard at first but the team, according to Berry was great to work with. “The other local dealerships and businesses were very good to work with and made us feel very welcome in the business community,” Berry explained. “I would say you could not choose a better place to do business and I would highly recommend it to anyone to do business in Stettler.”

Standing on the threshold of such a remarkable milestone, Berry added that in the next 10 years they are hoping to upgrade their facilities and want to expand further.

“We’d like to continue to grow both our business and the community of Stettler, and be a big part of making Stettler the best community in central Alberta to do business,” Berry stated. “I would like to thank all the people of Stettler and the County of Stettler for their support and for being great patrons of our business. Thanks for the 10 years of support and here’s to the next 10!”
