VanDusen Shares Secrets to Success at Membership Matters

Posted 7 years ago on · Permalink

Culture, community, customer enthusiasm and performance are the four pillars upon which Jim VanDusen has built his dealership’s success. The entrepreneur and owner of Jim VanDusen Chevrolet Buick GMC was the guest speaker at Tuesday’s Membership Matters event. The dealership has blossomed under Jim’s leadership increasing sales dramatically. Moreover, the company took home this year’s Business Excellence Award for Businesses with 50 plus employees and that’s no small accomplishment.

Membership Matters events are held twice annually to showcase the benefits of belonging to the Ajax-Pickering Board of Trade to prospective and existing members alike. In addition to Jim’s enthusiastic and engaging remarks, attendees also got to hear about the services we offer from Business Development Manager Iris Nicolaison and some of our affinity partners.

Wendy Matton from Hardiman Mount & Associates shared details about the Chambers of Commerce Group Insurance Plan and Yvonne Brady from Johnson Insurance discussed the benefits of their exclusive home and auto insurance plan for APBOT members.
Representatives from some of our other partners were also on hand and attendees got to visit tables showcasing Constant Contact Email Marketing, Grand & Toy, Magnet and our Eco Business program.

APBOT was pleased to take this opportunity to launch the first video in our Membership Matters testimonials series.

Attendees were very enthusiastic about the facilities that V!VA Pickering Retirement Community was able to offer for a business event of this nature.
