  • Tara Palubeski
    Accounts Payable

    Tara started her career in the transportation business in Logistics as a dispatcher for a large Canadian distributor.  After many successful years, the company downsized and she was a part of a mass lay off.  Finding herself at a crossroads in her career, she was referred by a friend to apply at Galt Chrysler for the position of Receptionist. 

    With her strong customer service background and ability to multi-task, she was the perfect candidate for this job and was hired immediately.  After two years, business was growing and she was quickly moved into the role of Vehicle Administrator.  When, just a short time later, a position opened in the Accounting Department, Tara jumped at the chance to grow once again as an Accounts Payable/ Receivable Clerk.  Currently she holds the title of Accounts Payable/ Deal Clerk and is an integral part of the Galt Chrysler Team.

    "I am very pleased with the Dealership and the direction that we're heading. We work hard and it's obvious that the leadership here is committed to making this a first class operation and our success will be a reflection of their dedication. I feel very proud and humbled to be a part of the organization."
