Findlay Cadillac sales consultant Deb Topham has been named the top-producing Cadillac sales consultant in Nevada in 2016.
A 12-year resident of Las Vegas and a native of Wichita, Kansas, Topham worked in a restaurant and was a Mary Kay consultant before entering the car business about 16 years ago.
“I sincerely love the Cadillac line of vehicles and appreciate the opportunity to sell them to the customers that this dealership attracts,” said Topham. “Considering that this dealership is one of the largest of its kind in the country with a beautiful showroom, the entire venue is something that we’re all proud of.”
Topham said Cadillac has remarketed itself in the past few years, producing not only the luxury vehicles but incorporating true performance at the same time.
“No longer is the Cadillac only for older consumers,” Topham said. “Many of the newer models are truly performance-oriented. The innovations provided by General Motors in the past several years are very impressive.
“Selling Cadillacs — and receiving an award like the one I just won — has been a dream come true for me. Selling a car generates an unbelievable thrill anyway, and the icing on the cake was undoubtedly winning the award.
“The magnitude of the accomplishment didn’t hit me until about an hour after I received my award. I must say I’m thrilled to death.”
Findlay Cadillac general manager John Saksa lauded Topham for her achievement.
“The car business can be very difficult,” said Saksa, who also serves as general manager of Findlay Fiat and Alfa Romeo at 210 N. Gibson Road. “It might look easy from the outside looking in, but it takes an endless amount of perseverance to be successful.
“Deb has a long list of customers from several states, and it’s easy to see why. She knows her product, and she maintains communications with her customers. In a business where a balanced formula is vital, Deb has it all figured out.”
Findlay Cadillac is situated at 993 Auto Show Drive in the Valley Automall. The dealership has been recognized as Cadillac Dealer of the Year in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2015 and 2016 by General Motors; the honor is based on sales, customer satisfaction and several other metrics.
