Jim Critchell comes to Listowel Ford with a wealth of knowledge, having over forty years’ experience in the automotive industry. Cars are in Jim’s blood, his father having had a long career in the car industry which inspired him to pursue a career in automotive. Jim is with us now as the Used Car Sales Manager, but he got his start at a Ford dealership in the Parts department, so he knows his way around a dealership. He chose to work at Listowel Ford not only because he loves the Ford product, but because he sees the potential of Listowel Ford and the community of Listowel. Jim loves working with customers and helping them select a new car that satisfies their wants, needs, and budget. Jim absolutely loves the Ford product, and his favorite vehicle is the Ford F-150 Raptor.
Jim is a family man with five kids and two dogs. When he is not working, Jim can usually be found at the gym, out on the hockey rink or baseball diamond – or enjoying his favourite foods, chicken wings and pizza. The coolest place he has ever travelled to is Jamaica, and he would love to visit Hawaii one day!
