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.

Brandon Smith
Sales Consultant

Hello my name is Brandon Smith sales consultant here at Golling Chrysler of Chelsea. First off, I would like to thank you for taking time out of your day to learn a little about myself. I've been in sales since 2013 which I've held numerous positions from picking up accounts B2B, cellular sales, owning an e-commerce business of my own which launched back in March of 2018 (kingyourcart.com) to where I stand today as a sales consultant here looking to put you and your family in a safe quality vehicle that meets all of your needs that you and your family can enjoy for years to come.

 

I was raised in a quiet small town called Whitmore Lake and am a proud Graduate of Pinckney High School class of 2010. In 2014 I obtained a Liberal arts degree to which I may never use, but earned as more of a personal goal. I myself am a proud Father of 2 beautiful little girls and as of the time this post they're ages 1 ½ & 3 years old. Family to me always comes first so when you sit down across from me at my desk, I will always make it a point to make you feel at home just like your own family would. Again, thanks for reading a little about me and maybe one day I will have the opportunity to work with you and learn about you in return.

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.

Thomas Lhuillier
Sales Consultant

Hello and best of wishes to you!

My name is Thomas, I am a Michigan native and have spent most of my life in the City of Jackson. I have been with Golling Chrysler since May of 2019. Before that I was in Management for the majority of my working life in retail. I have always made it my purpose to put the customer/client first, above all else, and you would be no different. I will give you my full attention and do my best to work with the team at Golling to get you the best deal at the best price possible. I want you to feel special from start to finish, and even after. The Golling Experience you will receive is different from other dealerships. We give you the small home town experience and make you a part of our family, while making sure you get the big city deals.

In my free time I spend a lot of time with family. They are the backbone of my existence. I have been married to my loving wife, Kendra, since 2008 and we have two awesome children. One boy, Reznor and girl, Roxane. We love to camp, sit around camp fires in the backyard and going shooting at the family gun range. "Nothing smells better than gun powder in the morning".

I am looking forward to meeting you and making your car buying experience one to remember. Thanks for your time and enjoy this great life.

Morgan Short
Sales Consultant

Hello everyone!

                My name is Morgan Short. I currently reside in Ann Arbor. I arrived here from Lansing Early in 2019.  I had previously lived in sunny San Diego for 6 years prior to Lansing. Before entering the wide world of car sales, I was a waiter and a bartender for 15 years. I enjoy taking my new Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk to Michigan's beautiful trails and dunes. When I'm not at work, I like to play music, float down the Huron River behind my condo, attend sporting events, and spend time with my family. Some day in the near future, I would love to start my own sustainable, organic garden to provide healthy food to my friends and family. Also, I constantly have either "The Office" or "Parks and Recreation" on a loop on my Netflix.  Stop in and see me, and try to stump me with some "The Office" trivia! Thanks for checking out my profile, and I look forward to getting you into your perfect model at a wonderful price!  Or just debating why Pam freaked out so hard when Jim started Athlead. Have a wonderful day, and I look forward to speaking with you soon.

Breonna Welter
Sales Consultant

My name is Breonna Welter. I have been with Golling for a short period of time, beginning in July of 2019. This is my first time in a dealership, but not my first time in sales. I was blessed with the job of my dreams here, as I love working with people and I enjoy watching customers walk away completely satisfied! I currently live in Jackson, but I am originally from Tecumseh, MI. I have a 4-year-old son who I give my entire world to. When I am not at work, I am working on completing my Bachelor degree in Business Administration, hanging out with my son, or hanging out with my close friends. One good thing about me is that I will always be honest with a customer, I believe that trust and honesty goes a long way in all aspects of life and communication.
