Born in Ottawa, I moved to Elmira where I have resided since the age of five. I started working on cars at the age of fourteen, majored in automotive apprenticing right out of high school, receiving my Interprovincial Class A Automotive Technician license. I completed a two year program in Automotive Business Management through Georgian Collage. I expanded my area of expertise in positions of Shop Foremen, Service Manager, gaining further experience in the parts and collision departments as a Fixed Operations Manager. In July 2008 I moved to the position of General Manager and in 2016 became the Dealer Principal at Wellington Motors after completing a seven week program with the North American Dealer Academy in Washington. With over 33 years' experience in the automotive business, over 20 here with Wellington, my approach has always been focused on you the customer. My goal is to provide an automotive purchasing & service experience above and beyond your expectations.

Born and raised in the charming little town of Elmira, Ontario. I am a proud mother of a son and daughter and married my high school sweetheart. I chose Wellington Motors for my automotive needs for over a decade before I began my employment here the consistent experience of the friendly staff that new me by name, great service provided a tremendous value. Wellington Motors had been a family run business for over 75 years with some staff still here after 40 years I thought they MUST be doing something right and I would be proud to be a part of the Wellington Motors Family.

Service

Phil McIntyre
Service Manager

Born in hamilton ontario, I moved to waterloo ontario at a young age. I started in the automotive industry in 1989 with a chrysler dealer working in several facets of the business, culminating in the position of service manager. In 2000 I had the opportunity to move to wellington motors in guelph, an opportunity which I jumped at knowing of their great reputation, a dealer that at that time had been in the business for 60 years. After 24 years with chrysler my focus continues to be to create a friendly environment for our customers, offering outstanding service  and value.
