  • Nate Krohne
    Sales Manager

    I have been in the car business for over 6 years. Before coming to Grand Forks Subaru, I was located in the Fargo/Moorhead area. When I'm not working I enjoy being at the lake with friends and family or you can find me watching sports.

  • Chad Vacura
    Sales Manager

    I have been a professional sales consultant in the Grand Forks and East Grand Forks area for over 20years. I am an enthusiastic part of our community that enjoys Golf, Soccer, Hockey, Biking, and swimming/boating the lakes with my wife, Tania, our 4 children and 2 grand children. I have been with the Grand Forks Kia team since the doors opened! We have a slogan here, "Better people, better products, better prices" and I feel that this slogan is very important. I want my customers to feel like they got the ultimate car buying experience. I have sold customers from all around the US and Canada that still contact me today for all their vehicles because of their buying experience. I would like to invite you in so you can experience the difference!

    Hello Everyone! A little blurb about myself...I got into the car business right out of college, 23 years ago. 12 of those years have been with Grand Forks Subaru! When not at work, I am on a soccer field or lacrosse field, my two kids keep me going! My weakness is turning junk into the perfect find.

  • Marjorie Morris
    Sales Consultant and Inventory Photographer

    I have boomeranged my way back to Grand Forks after several years in Kansas City. When not working hard to help my clients choose their perfect vehicle, I can be found engaging in architectural photography, interior design, and writing songs and stories. I also relish in time spent with family, which results in my favorite ab workout, "the ten-minute-belly-laugh".
