Brian Richards, Owner
Brian has an extensive history in the automotive industry stretching back to the mid 1970’s in Winnipeg, Manitoba. In 1978 he moved his family to Thunder Bay, Ontario where they lived until the move to Atikokan in 1999. While living at Eva Lake just outside of Atikokan, he commuted to work in Thunder Bay and Nipigon, Ontario on a weekly basis. Throughout these periods, Brian worked at various major franchised auto dealerships as a sales person, sales manager, general manager and dealer-operator until his health slowed him down in 2011. He has been principal owner of Classic Auto since its inception in March of 2003 and continues to monitor its operation, customer satisfaction, and financial status on a regular basis. In the unlikely event that you feel the staff at Classic Auto have not or cannot satisfy your concerns, Brian would like to know about it and see what he can do to make you happy.
