Hello, my name is Jim Purves. I am the General Sale Manager at the Al Serra Auto Plaza. In my 21 years with the company, I have had many of our competitor’s wonder how we continue to sell our vehicles so “Dad Blamed Low.” It’s simple… we offer every customer a great vehicle, at a low price, awesome customer service, and a truly exceptional buying experience. Additionally, it is amazing that during these 21 years, I have witnessed significant growth of the Auto Plaza, which now offers just about any brand to fulfill your vehicle needs.
When I am not working, I enjoy spending time outdoors, watching sports, and having a good time with my friends and family.
If there is anything that I can do to assist you with your vehicle needs, please feel free to reach out to me directly at 810-603-1414.
Hello! My name is Dave Wenzel and I am one of the Sales Managers at our Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram store within the Al Serra Auto Plaza. I started selling cars in 1996 at the Al Serra Auto Plaza and moved into management January, 2008.
I have been in the retail business since age 16. I have been in many roles at the Auto Plaza since my start in 1996. Throughout my career I have learned that it is not about what you are selling, it is about who you are selling to. One thing holds true throughout the entire organization and that is that we treat our customers right and do the right thing – this makes my job easy and extremely fun!
In my personal time I enjoy spending time with my granddaughters.
Please reach out to me if there is anything I can help you with!
My name is Brandon Peabody and I am the Business Manager at our Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Store within the Al Serra Auto Plaza. I started selling used cars at the Auto Plaza November, 2011. Prior to selling cars I sold business insurance in both Michigan and Chicago.
The insurance industry relates very closely with my position as Business Manager at CDJR. I thoroughly enjoy marketing customers financing to our partner banks. With the fast paced and ever-changing bank climate (and interest rates), the Al Serra Auto Plaza has a tremendous advantage over the smaller dealerships and local banks. Volume is king when it comes to financing! The more business you send to banks, the better interest rates they give us.
Selling cars is fun! Selling cars for a company that believes in treating customer’s right and whose philosophy is volume… is REALLY fun. When dealerships focus on volume, everyone wins! And we don’t believe in losing!
Hello, my name is Jeff Jones I have proudly worked for the Al Serra Auto Plaza since November 2004.

I am also a Sales Manager and have a passion for helping people make decisions that will make them happy with their very important purchase!
I am happily married with three great children that are now old enough to clean their own rooms but still young enough to think Dad is a cool guy!
Feel free to call me direct at 810-953-1777

My name is Jordan Tuck and I am the finance manager with Al Serra Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep-Ram. I have been with the Al Serra team since 2011 after I graduated from Northwood University. I was also born and raised in Grand Blanc. Go Bobcats!
Growing up in the area, I always saw this dealership as a spectacle. There were so many cars to look at! To see how it has grown over the years has been even more astonishing. It truly is an honor to work for such an organization that takes care of its employees just as well as our customers. The greatest feeling to me is when someone says, “You have made this experience fun and easy,” or “Nobody has ever done this for me before” that is what I strive to do every day with every customer.
I am learning every day from some first class individuals who have 20+ year tenures within the organization. It feels great to have people say, “You’re in a great spot, kid.” I aim to be in their position in the (distant) future! I look forward to seeing you at the Auto Plaza!
