  • Chris Tonkin
    Dealer Principal

    Hello Everyone - My Name is Chris and I'm the new Owner and Dealer Principal here at Straightline Chrysler. My partner Clark and I came into town in January of 2017 and we are ecstatic to now be part of the Fort Saskatchewan community.
    I've been in the car business since 2004 and absolutely love it. Our slogan for Straightline Chrysler is "Shifting the Experience". Our goal is for every single customer who walks through the door to have a fantastic experience here, whether you are in Parts, Service or Sales. Our dealership promises to be open, honest, transparent and most of all - fun!
    So far, we've been fortunate enough to become the Major Sponsor of the Hospital's Care from The Heart Radiothon, Fort Sask Soccer Association, Fort Sask Community Hospital Foundation's Golf Tournament and more. We believe that every business in town should give back where they can, and we are thrilled to do so.
    Outside of work, I love traveling, spending time with family and friends, water-skiing, downhill skiing, playing hockey, golfing, competing in triathlons and more.
    I'd love to meet all customers of the dealership, so feel free to stop by, say hi and have a coffee any time!

    See you soon,

    Chris

    Hi There - I'm Clark, the new General Manager here. Chris & I came to Fort Saskatchewan together in January of 2017 and launched our new dealership, Straightline Chrysler. I am very proud to operate a business here in The Fort. I love the people here in town, I love helping out our loyal customer base and meeting new families every day.

    Before the Fort Saskatchewan adventure, Chris & I helped manage a Dodge dealership in the Calgary area together for roughly 8 years.

    When I'm not at work, I love hanging out with my wife and 2 young boys, spending time on our boat on Vancouver Island, travelling and just enjoying life.

    I'm new to town here, so I'd love the opportunity to meet you, whether you're an existing customer, future customer or just passing through.

    Stop in anytime. Also, feel free to call or email if there's anything at all you think I can help with!

  • Nancy Burns
    Controller

    Hello,


    My name is Nancy Burns, and I am the Controller for Straightline Chrysler.  I started working in the car industry in the spring of 2016. The transition to the car industry has had a few challenges, but that is how we grow, constantly learning. Throughout my career, I have worked in many different industries while raising a family and earning my education through night classes.  It took determination, perseverance, and of course a great deal of support from my family, but after 12 years of night classes I earned my Bachelor of Business Administration Degree - major in Accounting. When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with my family snowshoeing, kayaking, and other outdoor activities.  To support my love of accounting I also do bookkeeping for a couple of not for profit organizations.

    Hi Folks,

    My name is Dan & I'm the New Car Manager here at Straightline. I've been in the automotive industry since 2010.

  • Mark Gohmann
    Service Manager
    780-998-0900

    Hello there, my name is Mark Gohmann.

    I am Service Manager here at Straightline Chrysler.  I have been in the industry since 2001, and I am excited to be part of the Fort Saskatchewan area and part of the Straightline Chrysler team.

    What attracted me to Straightline Chrysler was the Dealership slogan "Shifting the Experience" and Chris and Clark's belief in how YOU should be treated. "Open, Honest, Transparent and Fun", how much better of a place could you ask to work, but even more importantly, it was identical to my philosophy of management and customer service in that creating an experience for the customer is number 1.  When you come, and see me I will do whatever it takes to create an experience for you that will be unmatched from any other dealership. 

    Outside of work I absolutely enjoy spending my time with family.  I love coaching my boy in baseball, watching him in hockey, and watching the shear enjoyment that my daughter has when she swims.  Come on down to Straightline Chrysler and meet myself and the outstanding team we have here, and see what the buzz is all about!

    See you soon,

    Mark

  • Karen Dixon
    Finance Manager

    My name is Karen. I work in our Finance Department here at Straightline Chrysler.

    I have been in the Fort Saskatchewan Community Since April of 2016. I must say there is something to be said about working in a smaller community. Everyone whom I have come into contact and met here has been very friendly and I love the atmosphere for local community. I enjoy having the time to stop and talk to those who come into the dealership, whether it's our Parts, Service or Sales Dept. I love meeting new people and hearing their stories of what brought them in to see us.

    I have been in the Automotive Industry since 2000 and enjoy every moment. I have been with Dodge for 10+ years. There is never a dull moment, every day is different and that's what I enjoy. As a Finance Manager, the best part of my job is seeing our customers drive away in something they want and love. We work hard here in seeing every customer leave happy and I enjoy that above all, making your experience here a great one!

    When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family. I enjoy playing slow-pitch and enjoying a round of golf when time permits. My boys ride motocross so am often spending my time at the track watching them, which I enjoy a great deal. I always tell our customers to pop in and say Hi when they're in for servicing or picking something up in our Parts Dept. We have a small town feel with a BIG emphasis on Customer Service. This is what I feel we have and we have fun doing it! Making you rethink your previous buying experience and proving how it should be every step of the way!

    Hello,


    I moved to Fort Saskatchewan just over a year ago with my little girl. After a brief break from the car industry to pursue a hair styling career, I discovered that I truly missed the excitement of sales. I missed getting to meet new people as well as building relationships, not just salesman/customer relationships but friendships!
    I am looking forward to building a life here in Fort Saskatchewan, and looking forward to meeting YOU!

    I'm the proud the mother of two amazing boys and I love working at Straightline Chryslers because the position I hold allows me to spend as much time as possible with my family. My boys love that I work here because they like to check out "all the sweet dodges" and love all the friendly staff and family friendly events they host.  (Although they tell me they'd be happier if we got a General Lee in the show room). When I'm not working I can be found spending time with my family or enjoying one of the amazing playgroups, events, fairs or farmers markets that our lovely town/residents of Fort Saskatchewan puts on.
