I've been working with Chris Ford in a professional capacity since 2011. In that time I've been able to rely on him to train and motivate his staff of techs and advisors to complete their required Honda training. Additionally, Chris has also trained his advisor staff in the intangible selling and customer handling skills not directly provided by Honda Motor Company. I have since transitioned to another OEM and would love to have Chris in any of my retail locations.
