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!

Administration

Angie Swehla, Office Manager

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.
