    John Strehler

    Business Manager

    John Strehler has a great sense of humor and loves his family. It’s been said that he joined the Ray Laethem family shortly after Jeff Laethem found him on the side of the road with a pan and a sign. Since there is no way to confirm this we will just assume it’s true. John was born and raised in the Grosse Pointe area and graduated from Grosse Pointe North. He lists the Rustic Cabin as his favorite haunt and heading the Upper Peninsula as his favorite place to be. Clearly a thinker, The Fountain Head and Atlas Shrugged make the list of John’s favorite books. John’s favorite part of his job is seeing people excited about getting into their new car. Come to the Motor Village and put a smile on John’s face while putting one on your own.
