Findlay Chevrolet was recently named the top-selling domestic dealership in Nevada for April and company executives were quick to point to three sales consultants for leading the charge. Lauded for their efforts were David Janacek, Gill Bouganim and Scott Nicolari, who combined to account for about 30 percent of the dealership’s new-car sales.
Janacek, 42, who has been in the car business for almost nine years, moved to Las Vegas from Indiana to pursue a sales career in industry equipment. A friend suggested the car business; Janacek joined Findlay Automotive Group in 2004.
“When I first got into the car business, I was excited because I have always liked cars,” Janacek said. “It’s a great thrill helping people achieve their dream. Whether it was a first-time young car buyer or a person who has bought 10 cars in his life, there is a special feeling involved in the transaction.”
Janacek said there was good reason why the dealership captured the recent honor.
“The reality of this is that Findlay Chevrolet is a very customer-driven dealership. Our emphasis on customer satisfaction has rewarded us with great sales results ,” he said.
“A big part of our longevity is our dedication to not only the customer but also the dealership as a whole. In many cases, there is a lot of turnover in the car business, but that’s not the case at Findlay Chevrolet. We love working here.”
One of Janacek’s customers is Eric Bowers, a Boyd Gaming Corp. director who has purchased four vehicles from Janacek in 24 months. His latest purchase was a 2012 Camaro that features a supercharged 6.2 liter engine with 580 horsepower.
“A lot of the reason for me coming back is that I’m treated as an individual and not a random car buyer,” Bowers said . “There is an extreme level of professionalism here and this is the type of dealership that could operate anywhere in the country. I have had a good experience in every department of this dealership .”
The 38-year-old Bouganim, originally from Israel, moved to the United States 33 years ago. He owned his own business before entering automobile sales in 2010.
“I saw more opportunity in the car business. I love the opportunity we are afforded here,” he said. “People really enjoy shopping here. When they come here, there is a positive atmosphere that is so prevalent that people feel as though they want to buy here.”
Findlay Chevrolet is spearheaded by General Manager Jamaal McCoy. Findlay Automotive Group was founded more than 50 years ago by the late Pete Findlay, whose son, Cliff Findlay, now spearheads operations of new and pre-
owned automobile dealerships in Nevada, Utah, Arizona and Idaho.
The dealership is off the Las Vegas Beltway between Jones and Rainbow boulevards in the southwest valley. For more information, call 982-4000 or visit www.findlaychevy.com.
