Harbor’s Hottest

Thank You for Voting Us #1!<br /> <br /> Gettel Automotive Group earns 1st Place for “Best Car Dealership”!<br /> <br /> Clockwise from right: Jim Gettel &amp; his daughter; Jim Gettel and Bob Bisplinghoff, Chief Operating Officer; Bill Finocchiaro, General Manager of Gettel Charlotte County<br /> <br /> Gettel Automotive Group recently purchased and re-opened seven new dealerships in Punta Gorda under the Gettel name. The Palm stores, including Toyota, Hyundai, Lincoln, Chevrolet- Buick-GMC, Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep-Ram, Mazda and Mitsubishi franchises brings Gettel’s number of Florida dealerships to 18 in total. Jim Gettel is proud to continue Gettel’s tradition of low prices and excellence in customer service in Charlotte County.<br /> <br /> Gettel opened his first Toyota dealership in the Bradenton-Sarasota area in 1991. Over the years he purchased additional dealerships from Southwest Florida to Gainesville. Gettel now runs six stores in the Bradenton-Sarasota area, including Hyundai, Nissan and Acura; three stores in Ocala, including BMW, Porsche and Volkswagen; and two locations in Gainesville including another BMW store and Gatorland Toyota. The Punta Gorda locations will add Lincoln, Chevrolet-Buick-GMC, Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep-Ram, Mazda and Mitsubishi to his brand portfolio along with additional Toyota and Hyundai locations.<br /> <br /> Before opening his Florida stores, Gettel was already a successful dealer in his native state of Michigan, selling Chevrolet, Buick, Oldsmobile, Pontiac, Cadillac, Ford, Mercury, Chrysler, Plymouth, Dodge and Jeep products.<br /> <br /> Bill Finocchiaro, General Manager of Gettel Toyota of Lakewood for the last three years, will be overseeing the transition in Punta Gorda. Every eligible, current Palm employee was offered a job after the transition. There will be 250 associates at the Punta Gorda locations, with a total staff for the group nearing 1,100 associates. “We are excited to be a part of the Punta Gorda community and working with all of the Palm associates!” Finocchiaro said.<br /> <br /> Gettel has shared his belief over the years that his employees are his most valuable resource and that customers should be treated with respect, dignity and honesty. He plans to bring those ideals and beliefs to the stores in Punta Gorda.<br /> <br /> Customers should be treated with respect, dignity and honesty.<br /> <br /> A NEW BEGINNING <br /> <br /> 1ST PLACE – BEST HAIR SALON <br /> <br /> Debbie Jones, owner and Master Stylist, and Judi and Jade, Master Stylists, are thrilled to be recognized as the HARBOR’S HOTTEST top hair care experts.
