    Starting in the car business out of college over 25 years ago was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.  As I worked through the different positions of sales consultant, finance consultant, used car manager, and general sales manager I learned just how important the process is to our guests.  Buying a car is an important event in a person’s life and should definitely be treated as such.  Now, as the General Manager of Luther Alfa Romeo and Fiat it brings me great joy to see our employees thrive in this industry.  Being able to assist them in delivering a high quality experience to all of our sales and service guests is amazing.  The Luther Group follows a great formula of providing guests with a transparent transaction whether you are buying a vehicle or having one serviced.  Honesty, Integrity, and Fairness are just a few values we live by each day.  When I’m not being amazed by the team at the dealership I may be on the golf course keeping my game polished.  Traveling with my family and 2 dogs also has an important place in my time off.

    I was born and raised in Small Town Minnesota.  I have been in the car business for over 25 years and am married with 3 kids and 3 grandkids.  I enjoy tending to our flower gardens in the summer, hunting with my sons and grandson in the fall, and warm weather cruises in the winter.

    I was born and raised in Red Wing, Minnesota. After graduating high school I moved and attended college at MSU, Mankato. After graduating college I immediately got a job at a car dealership back in Red Wing. Since then, I have relocated to the area and have been in and out of the industry for about five years. 

    When I’m not at work I enjoy spending my time outside with my family and friends.

    I grew up in Wayzata and have lived in Minnesota my entire life. Prior to joining the automotive industry, I ran my own executive search firm and a home improvement business. 

    I work outside of the automotive business as a singer/songwriter and guitarist. I had the privilege of traveling to Eastern Europe and doing concerts which is where I met my wife Olga while on tour in 2001. When I am not serving guests, I love making use of the guitars I have collected along the way. 

    Since 2013, I have enjoyed representing the Alfa Romeo and FIAT brands. I love meeting new people and educating them on the rich history of the Italian brands that I work with every day. I have learned that people want integrity, thoroughness and a good listener when they come to buy a car and this is what I strive to provide to my guests every day.

    I’m Jake, and I’ve worked for FIAT and Alfa Romeo for more than 9 years. I went to school at Dunwoody, and was enrolled in the Chrysler Automotive Program. I started in the industry at a Chrysler dealer, but Fiats stole my heart. I own an Abarth, a Durango, and a Jeep. Mopar for life! In my spare time, I enjoy watching Netflix, playing video games with my fellow technicians, and mowing my 4 acres of grass. I am a very handy person, and am often called Jake the Conqueror!

    I’m Ryan, and I’ve worked for FIAT and Alfa Romeo for over 10 years. I went to school at Dunwoody and was enrolled in the Chrysler Automotive Program. I started at FIAT when FIAT was first brought to America, and I think I have found my calling. I enjoy learning more every day, and I’m an expert at figuring out difficult, intermittent electronic concerns that may arise. I love working on cars, and recently completed an engine swap in my Nissan 350Z. I also love playing video games, riding my new four wheeler up at my dads’ cabin, and spending time with my good friends.

    Wife Sayra & two daughters. 

    Hobbies include playing music (double bass), biking, camping & spending time with my family.

    Tech at FIAT/AR for almost 10 years

    I like my role because the of the variety of work. I basically get to play problem solving puzzles for a living!

    I always liked Wes Rydell’s philosophy which was something like “do the right thing and everything else will take care of itself.” I’m definitely paraphrasing but I think that was the gist of it.

    I’m Griffin, the newest addition to Alfa Romeo and FIAT of Minneapolis in 2021. I just finished the Chrysler Automotive Program at Wyotech, and am very excited to have my first dealership experience here at Alfa Romeo and FIAT. I have learned so much so far, and can’t wait to continue learning more about these interesting machines as they evolve. I am an Eagle Scout, “once an Eagle Scout, always an Eagle Scout!” I don’t think I would be the person I am, without my experience in the Scouts. In my spare time I enjoy doing hot yoga, hanging with my friends, and buying cool new tools to use every day!
