Ben De St Jean
Ford Sales Manager

I've been in the car industry for 12 years and with Lake Shore for 7.  I enjoy meeting new people and helping them get into the perfect car/truck/SUV that fits with their lifestyle.  Outside of work, I prefer to spend time with my daughter and bowl.  A fun fact about me is that I have bowled 25 Perfect 300 games!

General Manager

I stated my career at Boone Ford in Olympia, WA back in 1987 as Finance director.  I joined Lake Shore in 1991 as the Ford Sales Manager and have worn many hats over the years.  In addition to being the Ford Sales Manager, I've sat in the Toyota Sales Manager's seat, been Dealer Operations Manager and currently work as the dealerships Government and Commercial Fleet Manager.  The best thing about this industry is that it's always changing.  Technology, new models, and new co-workers make every day worth coming to work. A fun fact about me is that I have a trophy on my desk for winning the 13-year-old local Punt, Pass, and Kick competition…Sponsored by Ford.  When I'm not working, my wife of 32 years and our 3 dogs like to hike and when I can, I like to get out and play some golf.  I still think baseball is America's number one pastime so I try to see as many games as my schedule will allow.

I've been in the car industry for 29 years and started here at Lake Shore back in 1989.
