  • Brent Johnson
    Sales Consultant

    I was born and raised in Guelph and after finishing high school I could not wait to get out into the world and carve my own path.  Soon after high school I came upon an opportunity to sell cars at Toyota and I began to cut my teeth in what was to be a long and rewarding career.
    Over the years I have tried my hand with different manufactures looking for my comfort zone; a place to call home.  In the early 90's a Jeep/Eagle dealer gave me the opportunity to join their management team.  That's when I fell in love with the famed Jeep brand. It was a phone call from Dave Fozard, Sales Manager at Wellington Motors that changed everything.  He invited me to be a part of the Wellington Motors Family;  I found my HOME and the rest is history!
    People are my favorite part of this story, co-workers, past and present; great friends & family; and a loyal customer base.  I continue to share close relationships with many of the customers I have helped over the years; lots of you have even been with me from the very beginning it's with all of your continued support and referrals that have helped me grow my business to where it is today.
    I have been blessed with a wonderful family and it's a pleasure to share our lives, family and friends with you at Wellington Motors.  Thank you to all who have shared this experience with me.  I continue to look forward to servicing all of your vehicle needs, be you old friends or new ones ... let's do it together.  Welcome home!!!
    Brent and the boys
