Meet the Staff of Gators Auto Sales
Anthony (Tony) Angelo - Co-owner
Anthony (Tony) Angelo
Anthony (Tony) Angelo is the co-owner of Gator's Auto Sales, along with his father Marlin (Gator) Angelo. I use the term "Co-owner" lightly, everybody knows that Gator is the judge, juror, and executioner *(A little humor for you), Tony prides himself on his customer service, and friendly demeanor. He is a avid basketball fan, with watching and playing as often as he can. Tony and Brooke, his girlfriend of 5 years, have a 2 year old daughter named Aubriana, who no doubt runs that household (his words). Most of the Google reviews about Anthony mention his honesty, and laid back, no pressure sales process. He always says he is not a car salesman, but a car consultant who helps you purchase the vehicle you want, not sells you on it.
" I love my job and career in the car business. While it can be frustrating at times, seeing all the positive reviews and happy customers make my day. I absolutely love this business, and plan on doing it for the rest of my life. Even if it means selling hover crafts and space ships in 2057"
Aubriana Angelo - The Future
Aubriana Angelo is the daughter of Anthony, and grand daughter of Marlin. She enjoys Disney movies,singing Disney songs, eating, and throwing anything she can find on the floor for Daddy and Mommy to pick up. She's a true bundle of joy, with a smile and laugh that can freeze a room. At just under 2 years old, be on the lookout for her helping her daddy at the dealership in about 16 years. Marlin may be the owner, and Anthony may be the co owner... but Aubriana runs this family and business. No doubt about it.
Aubriana- "jndkjhkjfhk Let it goooo. Let it goooo"
Marlin "Gator" Angelo - Owner
Marlin Angelo - "Gator"
Marlin Angelo has been in the car business for over 30 years and counting. On top of many years of car sales and ownership experience, he is a Navy veteran,and a retired police officer. He retired from the police department after 25 years serving the community. (A car selling, Navy vet, police officer. Crazy right?) He prides himself on his honesty in this business, his honesty has earned him his great reputation over the last 30 years. He is a devoted catholic and family man. Still hosting family dinners at his house every Sunday, like his Italian grandparents did before him. He is married to his wonderful wife Lisa, a father of 3 (Tony, Michelle, David), stepfather of 1 (Monique), and a pop-pop to 7 grand children. He is also a die hard Minnesota Vikings fan, as painful as that ride has been. He just wants ONE Superbowl before he passes away, a minor request for such a wonderful man.
He always tells his children that he is right "95% of the time" , and yet sometimes they learn the hard way, and have to tell dad "You were right" Mr 95%.
Michelle Gibbs - Office Manager
Michelle Gibbs- "Mama Bear"
Michelle Gibbs is Gator's daughter and the office manager at Gator's Auto Sales. She does a little bit of everything. From running cars to the garages, to all the paperwork involved behind the scenes. As many know the paperwork when running a business is alot to handle, she handles it with grace. She is a mother of 3, and wife to her husband AJ. She has gone against the family code of die hard Vikings fans, and loves her Green Bay Packers. I'm not sure Papa Gator has ever forgiven her for that. Great wife, great mother, great woman.
Scott Shannon - Lot Manager
Scott Shannon- "Mr fix it"
Scott Shannon is our lot manager. He does it all. Details cars, fixes the cars, sells cars. He is a jack of all trades in this business. Scott has also been in the car business for nearly 30 years. Him and Gator have been with each other nearly every step of the way. Scott is the best detail man I have ever seen, The cars he is able to bring back to life is a talent matched by none. On top of being a detail specialist, he is also a great mechanic. Scott takes problems we all struggle to figure out, and has them solved in a matter of minutes sometimes. He is a husband, and father to 3 daughters and multiple grand children. Great guy, great mechanic, great friend.
