Harvey Butner
Service and Parts Director at Ford


I have been in the automotive business since 1995. I have a passion for the business, and a strong desire to be a proven leader in all I do! I am self driven, goal orientated and take great pleasure in taking care of each and every customer.. one customer at a time. It's that simple !

Employee growth, mentor ship, coaching and team building are all very strong attributes of mine.

I take a personal interest in developing service and parts employees, for rapid growth and personalized success! Very few can do what I can do in such a short time with staff members and team building. I believe we must empower our people and hold accountability. Set goals and map out employee growth. We must be flexible and knowledgeable in our ever evolving industry.

Most of my experience is turning lagging dealerships with young personnel into successful operations.

Knowledge is power, and I believe training in our industry is monumental and required at all levels.

I truly enjoy the hands on experiences at the lower levels and taking individuals to levels they didn’t know were possible in all aspects of their life! I unlock the potential ..... Truly NEXT LEVEL.
