  • Subaru of Wichita -
    Non-Commissioned Sales Pros!
    Fast, Fun, Hassle Free Car Shopping and Financing

        At Subaru of Wichita the key to our success has been due in large part to our Team of People and the Processes we have created as that team.  Most of our co-workers come from outside of the Car Business,  generally from some form of Customer Service Background.  You won't find the typical gold-chain or plaid-suit wearing salespeople here.    We hire nice, friendly, and smart people who genuinely care about providing an amazing experience for our customers.  We feel we have assembled the best Team of People anywhere in the country.

  • Kevin Cole
    Service Manager
    316-295-2800

    Kevin has been a car enthusiast since he learned to drive at age 12.  Finally, after 30 years in business, business management and as a success driven entrepreneur, he is finally doing what he loves to do most.  It is true, if you choose a job you love, with people you love, you will never have to work a day in your life.  This dealership has a unique culture that allows it to flourish.      

     

    As the Service Manager, Kevin asks the staff to use solid logic, good common sense, superior training and learned knowledge to make the best decisions possible while keeping each customers' experience as the focus.  

     

    Favorite response to most employee questions, "What would you do if I was not here to ask...?"

     

    This approach with employees is a little different than what they might be used to.  It is empowering, and gives them the freedom to take care of the customer, THEIR CUSTOMER, immediately, with the trust and confidence of the Manager behind them to coach through a tough call instead of reprimanding if they make a bad decision.  The end result of this approach to customers is out of this world.  They respect it and become more loyal to than ever.  Customer's want to work with someone they can trust, that can make things happen, and keeps their best interest at heart.      

     

    Kevin has been happily married to his wife Vicki since 1989.  They were blessed with two wonderful girls with the same family morals, work ethics, and drive toward success as Kevin and Vicki.  They have recently entered their grand-parenting phase and love every minute of it.
