He rejoined our auto group in July of 2011 and became the General Manager of Jim Pattison Volvo of Coquitlam. Currently, Gar is the General Manager for Jim Pattison Subaru Coquitlam. Gar enjoys sports, his family, and travel, including the many beautiful spots that BC has to offer such as Tofino and Whistler.

  • Dani Jodoin
    Assistant Office Manager

    Dani started with the group in 2006 as the evening receptionist with Jim Pattison Hyundai Coquitlam.  She then began working weekends at Jim Pattison Volvo of Coquitlam, which eventually turned into a full time opportunity - from there she has worked her way up to the position of Sr. Administrator. Dani is currently working at Jim Pattison Subaru Coquitlam. Dani is the head of our Occupational Health & Safety committee, is one of our fire marshalls, and, in addition to these roles, she also helps out with any odd jobs or projects around the dealership. She is a Jill of all trades.    

    In her spare time you will find her playing hockey, baseball, and occasionally out trying to improve her golf game.
