The Eide Chrysler team in Pine City is excited to welcome Linda Tougas as our newest salesperson.
A Minnesota native, Linda was born and raised in the Brainerd area. She got into the automotive industry while living in Wisconsin.
“I accidently got into the car business,” she said. When she moved to Wisconsin, she needed a job, and was hired at a dealership in Eau Claire.
It was a big change for her, but she forged ahead, hit the learning curve at a run and soon was the top salesperson at her dealership – something she has strived to accomplish at every dealership where she’s worked.
Providing a good customer experience is very important to Linda. She chose Eide because she wanted to work at a dealership where they focused on treating the customers well.
“I’m excited to be part of a dealership that’s growing in a positive way,” she said. “I appreciate the core values that Eide has, and I really am excited that the management gets involved in the process in a positive way.”
She said Eide feels good. Everyone is friendly and works well together as a team. That makes a big difference in the workplace culture.
Outside of work, Linda is looking forward to spending time on the lake. She just bought her first home, and she’s looking forward to exploring what it’s like to be a homeowner, gardening and sitting on the dock as the weather gets warmer. “It will be wonderful,” she said.
Linda said Eide in Pine City is a family-friendly dealership – which is important to her, as starting this job means she’s close to family, including her grandkids. Eide’s way of selling really puts the customer first, and she loves finding opportunities to find the vehicles that suit a customer’s needs.
“I’m really looking forward to getting the new Jeep Grand Cherokee on the lot, both the Wagoneer and the L,” she said. “I’m excited we’re going to have a third-row Jeep vehicle again, as a complement to the Durango. It’s nice to offer customers a choice.”
