    I started my career in Sales after graduating from college in 1986.  My father Ronald Roberts, who was the Dealer Principal/President, thought it would be short lived and stuck me in a corner of the showroom with no phone and a hand-held calculator.  After many sales, he realized that I was serious about my desire to work in the auto industry, and that I was good - good enough to earn a phone and an office.  I loved being at the dealership! As time and the hard work went on, I was promoted to Sales Manager and then General Manager. In 2012 after the passing of my father, I became the Dealer Principal/President. Every day I strive to carry on my father's legacy of "Making Customer's for Life" and continuing to grow our business.  I am very proud of how many times we have won Ford's most prestigious President's Award for customer satisfaction, totaling over 20 awards.  I truly LOVE what I do; I love who I work with and most of all I LOVE our Riley Ford Family of customers who make it possible.     

    On a personal note I have been married to my high school sweetheart Barton for 30 years.  We have 2 beautiful daughters Jenna and Jessica who I am blessed to work with.  Jenna is the Service Manager and General Manager and Jessica is the Business Manager.  They are both married to wonderful men and they have blessed us with our beautiful grandchildren. Jenna and Matt have 2 children - Madyson Joy and Joel Logan Dodd and Jessica and Bryce have 2 children, Karson Ronald and Hayden Tyler.     , "I enjoy spending most of my free time with my family."

    Most people don't have the pleasure of saying that they love what they do. I can wholeheartedly say that I love my job. I love the industry, I love the people I work beside, and I love the customers I have met along the way. My role here at the dealership has evolved from filing alongside our comptroller, to salesperson, to Service Manager, and now also General Manager. Along my journey of the things I love the most about my job, the people I have met is at the top of my list. Personally I strive every day to do what we can and help each and every customer.  At the end of the day what sets us aside is how we treat our customers, who are more like family. 

    On a more personal note, I have been married to my husband Matthew since 2011 and am the proud momma of two children, Madyson (4) and Joel (2).  We enjoy spending time together as a family and I love seeing the progression our children are making as little people.   Madyson and Joel have completed my husband and I and we work hard to set good examples for them as the kind of people we want them to be in life. I want them to see how good life can be, how we can help others along the way, and how hard work and determination will pay off and you can be happy with the life you live.

    BUSINESS MANAGER
    518-846-7131 Ext 12

    I have been a part of Riley Ford since 2013. After graduating with a bachelor's degree in criminal justice, I was working in the office as a title clerk while pursuing my master's degree. When it came time to really move forward with my education, it was difficult for me to imagine leaving the people I have known my entire life; my Riley Ford family. The Riley Ford family, to me, is just as much the people who work here as it is the customers that make us as great as we are. Being a part of this dealership means being a part of the legacy my grandfather began. I strive to continue to provide a place where people can come to purchase one of the biggest investments of their lives, a place built upon trust, integrity, and compassion.  The auto industry has evolved and with that we have grown in tremendous ways, but the way we take care of our customers will remain the same. Come be a part of the excitement, a part of the Riley Ford family!

    Office Manager

    Hi my name is Jane, sometimes known as jungle Jane, crazy Jane or Aunt Jane. I have been here at Riley Ford for the past 37 years beginning when my dad, Ron Roberts, asked me if I wanted to work at the dealership.

    Starting in 1981, I began working all over the dealership; I helped in the Parts department, washed cars in the reconditioning department, and went on dealer swaps.  A few years later, I started learning how to do paperwork in the office.  That included doing DMV paperwork and getting the contracts ready for the customers picking up their vehicles. I love my job and always have. I enjoy getting to see the customers I have known from the time I started, and I enjoy our getting to know our new customers as well.

    Sales Manager

    After 20 plus years working in auto sales, I have had the opportunity to work with and learn from many different people.  None of them had more impact on my life or career then my uncle, Ron Roberts and my dad, Gerald Roberts.  The lessons I was exposed to every day have sculpted who I am today.  When I asked my dad to teach me the car business this is what he said; "Don't judge a book by its cover, treat everyone you encounter the same, and don't ever tell someone you are going to do something unless you intend on doing it."  This sounds simple, but it is not common in this industry.  The auto industry has changed more in the last five years than it did in the last 50, but the common-sense way of working with people and the integrity that they lived by is still the foundation of our success.  I enjoy coming to work every day and working with people that we have built relationships with for generations and I can't think of any career that would offer such reward in my life.  Come in and experience for yourself what the Riley Ford family can do for you. 

     

    When I'm not living the dream at work you will most likely find me at a hockey rink with my family or in the woods with my thoughts.

    SALES MANAGER
    518-846-7131 EXT 35

    I started my sales/finance career in 2011 after graduating with my bachelor's degree from Plattsburgh State. Sales has always been a passion of mine, but it really took off after joining the Riley Ford family as a Sales Manager in 2015. I truly enjoy the excitement created in working to get a customer into the vehicle of their choice. I take to heart our motto of "Making Customers for Life," and treat each customer with respect, dignity, and understanding.

     

    On a personal note, I married my wife Danielle in September of 2017. We have two dogs, Bauer & Kora that we enjoy spending time with. When I'm not at work or home with my family, you can most likely find me at any local hockey arena.

    I bought my first vehicle from Riley Ford in 2006 while I was working at Pfizer in manufacturing. Shortly after that purchase, Pfizer announced the beginning of their shut down and I began working at Momot Trailer Sales to gain sales experience. In 2009 I left there to join the Riley Ford team. I was born, raised, and have lived in Chazy my entire life. I believe that hard work and dedication is the foundation to all success. Riley Ford has one of the most hard-working teams I have been a part of and I am proud to be a member of that team. Every day we treat our customers the way we would want to be treated - with kindness and respect. I am very fortunate to work in the town I grew up in, currently reside in, and to serve the people of the North Country. I am the proud recipient of Ford's Employee Excellence award on six separate occasions, achieving the highest level of this award on four occasions. These awards are earned through the highest customer satisfaction ratings and if given the opportunity to work with you on your next vehicle purchase, I will make you a customer for life.

    I have been working in sales for well over a decade and began a new career with Riley Ford in August of 2017. It wasn't an easy decision to get into the car sales business but I am glad I did. In my short time here with Riley Ford I've been treated like family.  What I love most about this job is that my co-workers and I treat all our customers the same way!  We truly make customers for life here.  I've always taken pride in helping people and here I have grown to love assisting customers with their transportation needs.  I will work diligently to find you the right vehicle at the right price!

    When I am not working, I enjoy spending quality time with my family. Traveling is a passion of mine and whenever the opportunity arises I will go somewhere new. When I am not with my family, I enjoy activities like playing a round of disc golf, strumming away at my guitar, and collecting rocks and minerals.

    INTERNET MANAGER
    518-846-7131 EXT 29

    My life in sales started 8 years ago but really took off here at Riley Ford about 3 years ago. I started at the dealership in May of 2015 as a Sales Specialist and in December of 2015 transitioned to the dealerships first Internet Manager. Riley Ford is more than just a place of employment for me, it has become a second home. Our work atmosphere is very family oriented and relaxed, and I couldn't be happier to be where I am today. Outside of work I have a wonderful Fiancé that I will be committing to for the rest of my life come August of 2019. When not at work or home, I spend most of my time as a volunteer EMT at my local ambulance squad that I have been a member of since March 2016.

    Here is a little something about me; I have had a career in parts for 8 years and the last 3 years have been spent here at Riley Ford. Working here has allowed me to continue doing what I enjoy. I enjoy anything motor related, increasing horsepower, and accessorizing/customizing. This all makes me passionate about my job and the people I get to work with.

    I started part-time at Riley Ford in the beginning of 2016, while I was attending the auto collision course at CV-Tech as an adult student while also working as a cook for Bazzano's Pizza. When I finished the course, I started working only here full-time. I have learned so much about how vehicles operate and the auto industry in general and I love the people that I work with. I have been in Ford parts for 2 years now and I enjoy helping customers find the parts that they need to get their vehicles back on the road.

    Administative Office Manager

    I've been at Riley Ford for a little over two years now. I came into this position with a little hesitation due to never working in the auto industry, but I jumped in with both feet and knew I had found my place at Riley Ford. My role at the dealership as Administrative Office Manager allows me to be involved in a bit of everything that goes on and I wouldn't have it any other way.  
     
    A lot of places can say they will treat you like their own but having witnessed the generosity and compassion first hand from everyone who works here, I can say that we truly stand behind the saying "Riley Ford Family."

    TITLE CLERK
    518-846-7131 EXT 10

    I officially joined the Riley Ford Family in May of 2015 after graduating from college with an Associate's Degree in Sociology and Psychology. Before my employment at the dealership I had already formed relationships with the people here because my father is a salesperson here, making the transition into this job that much easier. Over the course of my time here I have formed lifelong friendships, became familiar with our amazing customer base, and have broadened my knowledge about the auto industry. I thoroughly enjoy coming to work every day, meeting new people and working in this fast-paced environment alongside people I consider my second family.

     

    As for a more personal note, I am engaged to be married to my college sweetheart this coming June. In my free time I enjoy being on the lake, hiking with my fiancé and our two pups, traveling, and spending time with the people I hold closest to my heart.

    Service Advisor

    I joined the Riley Ford Family in January of 2017. I had recently graduated from Paul Smith's College with my Bachelor's Degree in Hotel, Resort and Tourism Management and was acting as the Business Coordinator for a bakery in Lake Placid, NY, when I heard about an amazing opportunity to move home and join the Riley Ford team. My passion lies in the customer service world, and while I was nervous to make such a massive career change, I knew that I would be working with people every day, and the challenge has been exciting. I love being a part of a small-town community and knowing all of our customers when they walk through the door. Equally, it's exciting to have new customers come through our shop and become a part of this amazing dealership. Riley Ford is truly based on integrity, honesty and a deep-rooted compassion for everyone we work with, I'm proud to stand with such an amazing group of coworkers.
