I take ownership of what I do and say."

  • Diane Gebhard
    Sales & Leasing Consultant
    860-442-3232 ext.105

    Diane has been selling Secor new and used Volvos for nineteen years in New London and four years before that in California.  "I have enjoyed the interaction with new and loyal customers throughout the years.  You really can't beat the product because it's the best. It has great style and performs at superior levels. Volvo really does what it is supposed to do to keep you safe, protect you from harm, and be fun to drive.  Our customers love their cars and, seriously, everyone has a story to tell about a Volvo accident and how the car saved their life, that of a friend, sister, pet, etc.  There's even a web site where people share their stories and photos (http://www.volvosavedmylife.com/read-the-stories.html).  My daughter sent a text and picture she took on her way to school of a Volvo that was crushed in an accident but the driver walked away.  Thankfully she was in a Volvo, and I was grateful that my daughter was in one too!  I love conveying the core values of our cars because I want our customers to know what they stand for, what value, longevity and integrity mean when you buy a Volvo from Secor Volvo."  In her spare time Diane enjoys spending time with her family, going to her three kids' activities and sporting events with her husband, enjoying the pool, outdoor summer fun, gardening, and their new, 8 week old Golden Retriever puppy.  Stop by Secor Volvo soon to meet Diane and talk with her about a new or used Volvo.

    Erica is new to the automotive industry and Secor Volvo, but has many years of experience in a variety of businesses from Business Manager through sales.  "I like the people aspect at Secor Volvo, meeting new customers, discovering what they need and matching their needs to our products. I love Volvos and it's kind of like making new friends and building great relationships around a positive, product image."  In her spare time Erica likes to spend as much time as possible with her rescue dog, doing outdoor activities and going hiking together.

    What Erica's customers have said about her:

    "My fiance and I were car shopping and after dealing with another local dealer who took forever(over a week)to find us a Bank and never answered our questions completely to satisfaction and always had a different excuse to why we was waiting so long we decided to try Secor Volvo. From the very first phone call all the way to delivery Erica was a pleasure to deal with. She was friendly, knowledgeable, honest, and helpful through it all. She didn't pressure us or talked us into anything that we didn't want. She was very attentive to our needs and concerns. She listened to us and made sure we was happy with the car we chose. After delivery she spent time with us and explained all the extra features in the car. For only being in the car sales industry for a year Erica provided amazing customer service and will go very far in this Industry. Thank you so much!!!" -Dealer Rater

He continues to reside in Old Saybrook with his wife Iris and 1 ½ year old son, Will. Since 1988 he has been buying old Volvos, fixing them up himself and with the help of others, and selling them. Right now he owns two Volvos with over 200,000 miles on them! When asked what he most loves about selling Volvos Will replies, "Volvo is a car of substance, something you can believe in. When you ride in a Volvo you know it is a quality product. For me, Volvo earns 10 stars out of 10. Everything else is a 5." In his spare time Will spends time with his family and friends, likes cycling, and has fond memories of listening to a cassette of Steely Dan in his father's Volvo over and over again.
