Local General Motors dealer, Andrew Barber, has been elected chair of the Saskatchewan Auto Dealers Association, and also has been appointed to serve on the board of the Canadian Automobile Association representing auto dealers and industry members throughout Canada.
Barber has served on the SADA board for six years and believes his 20 years of hands-on experience in dealerships have given him insight and experiences that will help him fulfill his responsibilities to the members of his industry.
He also credits his membership in the Weyburn Young Fellows Club and local volunteering as helping him prepare for this role.
After graduating from Georgian College (Automotive Marketing) and working in several Saskatchewan dealerships, he returned to his hometown to be a partner in Barber Motors.
He said he and his wife Rhea are proud to live in Weyburn where they raise their four children, Olivia, Brittany, Pressley and Halle, in “the most family friendly community in Canada!”
