Jeff Fields joined Burritt Motors recently as a sales representative, it was announced by Chris Burritt, owner.
“We’re delighted to add Jeff to our growing sales team,” said Burritt. “Jeff has excellent rapport skills and a reputation for putting customers at ease and making sure that they are delighted with their visit to Burritt Motors.”
“I love to meet new people,” Fields said. “ And it’s great to be part of a family owned and operated business. It’s a lot of fun working as part of the Burritt team.”
Fields, a native of eastern Kentucky, lives in Oswego and has six years in automotive sales. Most recently, he worked for a dealership in Virginia Beach, Va., where he was also an assistant golf pro at a local country club.
Burritt Motors’ history dates back to 1955 in Hannibal when Chris’ grandfather, Elmer O. Burritt, purchased a Chevrolet franchise that he operated until 1963. To expand in a larger market, Chris’ father, Richard, purchased the assets of a Chevrolet dealership that had been located on Oswego’s East Third Street. About a year later, he built the present dealership on Route 104, which underwent a $2.5 million expansion and renovation last year.
The dealership celebrates its 59th anniversary this year and can be reached at (315) 343-8948, www.burrittmotors.com or www.themechanixgarage.com.
