    Hello! My name is Chad Hopkins. I am the General Manager here at Lewis Nissan. I am filling big shoes here in honor of the Lewis Family. I have been in the car business since 1993. I joined the Lewis Team in 1998 and have worked as the General Manager since 2010. My life in sales has taught me the most valuable part of the sales process is truly the customer. Many of my customers for the past two decades are now close friends. I am a family man. I enjoy the outdoors and time with my wife and child. I show up to work every day realizing that I carry a heavy responsibility. My goal is to follow in these footsteps yet exceed all our current goals and expectations. I cannot do this alone. I have carefully hired highly skilled and qualified staff that are both aggressive with your deal and compassionate for you as a human being. I do not hire just anyone. This is a responsibility that I have promised will succeed to my elders. If you are looking for the best deal in town, the best service after the sale, and the best hospitality then you need to come to Lewis Nissan. I am confident of our product, staff, and future.

    Mark Tolley

    Hello! My name is Mark Tolley. I am one of our finance managers here at Lewis Nissan. I have been in finance for 16 years and love what I do. I realize that we live in trying times and credit scores are not always going to be strong. I also understand that money down is not always an option. This is why I have worked hard in my years to develop strong relationships with both local lenders and national lenders. I do not look down on the customer but look at it as an opportunity to help someone catch a break in life. Seeing a tough deal get approved or providing the low rate a customer needs is a feeling of accomplishment. I see it as both my job and my passion.

    I have worked with other dealerships but been with Lewis for the past five years. I was taken in as family. We laugh together, cry together, and have wonderful memories together as staff. It really is a family atmosphere. I can truly say this is the best place I have worked. When working with your sales person, tell them you want Mark Tolley to do your financing. I will work hard for you.
