Trevor "Tex" Dawson's love for Western Canada began when he worked in Alberta for 6 months when he was 18 years old. "The people are great out there," Tex says. "They will come right up to a stranger in the street and say hi! Very different from the Big Smoke." Tex is ecstatic that Consolidated Dealers finally made the decision to go national and thrilled that CD now has over 200 customers in the west.
Tex began as a sales rep for Co-Auto Co-Operative Inc. (as Consolidated Dealers was known back in 1996) and has served as Product Manager, Director of Sales and Marketing and today is VP of Marketing (the best job at Consolidated according to Tex). Tex graduated from York University in 1985 and has over 30 years experience in the automotive business.
When he is not cutting new deals for Consolidated, he can be found strumming the bass guitar in some twang band or on a hot date with his missus of 30+ years.
