Matt Godfrey
General Manager

I have lived in Michigan my whole life. I met my wife Dawn at the dealership, and we have been married 24 years. We have two children my oldest Alexis attends Grand Valley, loves animals and is a hunter. My youngest son Cameron is a Freshman at MSU. His sports of choice are motocross and basketball. I have been in the industry for 30 years. I truly enjoy working hard to make sure each and every customer is satisfied with their experience at the dealership. For fun, I love to boat and vacation where it is warm, spend time with my family. Racing at the track with my children has been a big part of our weekend over the last 15 years. I look forward to meeting you when coming in for a new vehicle.

Dustin Marich
New Car Sales Manager

I started in this business as a porter and worked my way up becoming a salesperson before becoming a Sales Manager. It has been a fun journey along the way, not just learning the business, but more importantly working for our customers to facilitate an enjoyable experience from start to finish!

I live in Pinckney with my Wife, Daughter, and our Bernese Mountain dog Bernie! We enjoy camping, the outdoors, and spending time with family in general.

While there are many dealers, I enjoy working for the Golling team the most as their business motto shows from the owner's right down to the porters.

We believe in making your car experience a great one, and that's the Golling Difference!

Stuart Herrell
Used Car Sales Manager

I have had the pleasure of helping people with their transportation needs for the past 30 years. I started with Golling Chelsea in September of 2018. I moved to Chelsea in 2011 after living in and around the Ann Arbor area since 1983. Chelsea is a great community, with a lively downtown and a lot of things to do.

In the summertime I enjoy being outdoors, either in Waterloo Recreation Area or on my pontoon boat with the grandkids.

Scott Rice
Finance Manager

I was born and raised in Michigan Center. I currently live on my Quarter Horse farm in Hudson, MI with my wife, Melissa. I have been in Retail Automotive sales since 1983 and have represented all of the major brands. I started my Business Manager career in 1997. I enjoy working with our customers and the banks to find a payment that will fit within the customer's budget and allow them to purchase a new or preowned vehicle.

When I am not at the dealership or on the farm working, I enjoy tournament fishing with my wife as well as spending time with our horses and blood hounds.

Dave Bryant
Sales Consultant

I have been in sales for about 25 years with FCA, in total basically all of my life.  Over my career I have seen this business change dramatically and I have done my best to adapt.  One thing that has not changed is my commitment to my clients.  I have recently been invited to take over our Commercial Sales department.  I am doing my best to take the focus I put on my clients' needs to this realm.  Although my main focus is on Commercial Sales, I of course still service all of my retail clients as well.  With the support of the Golling Team I am able to provide a level of service not available with a lot of establishments.

When I'm not at work, I am a volunteer First Responder for the Livingston County DART and CERT Teams. I am a big supporter of our Emergency Services, and do my best to provide assistance to them as well as the residents of my community whenever I can.  I am a single dad to a now 18 year old son.  That has been one of if not the most satisfying aspects of my life.  I enjoy boating, current and classic muscle cars and spending time with my family.

Myles Harris
Sales Consultant

I was raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan. After living on the West Coast for a dozen years, I have circled back to my Michigan roots for almost two years now, settling in Chelsea with my wife and daughter. The majority of my family lives throughout Washtenaw county as well. My wife is an avid cyclist, tri-athlete, and an amazing mother of our 7-year-old daughter. Horses, particularly riding and competing on the ones dearest to her heart, are our daughter's first passion, with ice skating, dance, and painting following closely behind.

I joined Golling shortly after moving back to Michigan. During my tenure here, I have gained expertise across all of the key areas that impact your car buying experience here at Golling. In addition, I have held roles across divergent industries throughout my career; including military service, reserve fire fighter / EMT, automotive and aerospace engineering, as a lender and analyst in the financial sector, and in supply chain operations. These combined experiences underpin a well-rounded perspective and approach, helping best understand the needs and goals of those I work with, while helping them most efficiently navigate the car sales process towards turning their ownership dreams into reality.

Ken Tripp
Sales Consultant

I have been with Golling in Chelsea, Michigan since October of 2017. It has been very exciting learning all about the car business, especially from a great bunch of people I have come to know here. I have always enjoyed working closely with the public and have been able to help many since starting at Golling.

I was born and raised just west of Chelsea, over in Jackson, Michigan. I have 3 children ages 16, 9, and 2 at the time of this writing. I have been married for 8 years to an amazing woman, Sarah, who has been incredibly supportive of me when making career changes, among other endeavors, and I couldn't be luckier to have such a wonderful woman. Warren Buffett once said, "One of the most successful career decisions you can make is who you marry." I couldn't agree more. I am very thankful to have these people in my life.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family. We do many things. Most of which consists of venturing around the country for the kids sporting events. My oldest daughter, Alizé, is a fantastic basketball player who will one day play at the college level. My middle child, Connor, is also a great athlete with an unbelievable imagination. The youngest girl, Charlie, is the princess of the house and she does whatever she wants, no questions asked. When not in gyms we often go boating on the lake or to a Tigers game. Our favorite thing to do is go to Lake Michigan in the summer. I also enjoy snowboarding in the winter. Usually, I'm up for just about anything.

I spent the last 15 years prior to the car business in wireless sales at a few of the major wireless carriers. I truly enjoyed the experience and all of the great people I had the pleasure of meeting. One of the most valuable lessons I learned was the importance of building quality relationships and being reliable for my customers. If you choose to come to Golling and give me the opportunity to earn your business, you will have made many friends and now be part of a family.

I appreciate you taking a little time to get to know a little bit about me, and I look forward to helping you with your next vehicle purchase.

Kristopher Bagocius
Sales Consultant

I was born and raised in Callahan, FL, where I lived until 2012, when I joined the USAF. In 2015, I was medically retired from the United States Air Force and found my passion in life was helping people. I find my job allows me to do just that by helping people find a new vehicle that will fit their needs without breaking the bank. When I'm not working or spending time with my dog Dakota, I am volunteering for the Boy Scouts of America as a marketing and social media director for the Cascades district in Jackson County.

Chris Woodward
Sales Consultant

I am a Michigander living in Chelsea, MI with my wife, children, dog, and two cats. My children attend Chelsea schools and we love being a part of the community. My family loves to spend time in the out doors and volunteering with our church. Our favorite family activity is going camping on the weekends or spending time at the beach. We also love to watch the Wings or Tigers play and attend a game whenever possible.

 I consider myself a vehicle enthusiast. I love learning about classic cars, motors, suspension and the body design that makes these classic so intriguing.  I also follow the current trends with new car design, the allure of current changes and epically of the next generations of automobiles to come!

I look forward to the opportunity to serve all of our customers and make sure their time at the Golling Chelsea store is an absolutely worry free and pleasurable experience. Thank-you!
