  • Jerry Stewart , Body Shop Manager

    I grew up in Hartland and have been around Brighton my whole life. I still live in Livingston County and enjoy time with my son. I have been with the Brighton Ford family since 2001. I have enjoyed the experiences I have had and the things I have learned since starting in the Parts Department and moving up within the company to the Body Shop Manager. My coworkers and I all know that there is no "I" in "TEAM" and we all work very well together to ensure that our customers are completely satisfied. Please do not hesitate to ask myself or any member of the Brighton Ford team for help.

  • Todd Spitler, Vice President & General Manager

  • Adam McKimmy, Pre-Owned Sales Manager

    I am married to my best friend and we have two lovely sons and a daughter. Bradley is 12, Landon is 6 and Daphne is 2. They keep us very busy! I come from a family of three. I have two older sisters that live locally. We were born and raised in Holt. My wife and I own a house in Williamston. In my early 20's I did a lot of of traveling. I moved to Colorado and then Florida for several years and then back home to the great state of Michigan. I have worked with the Spitler (owners of Brighton Ford) family for a total of 14 years and it's been a great run. My father and mother have always been tied to the automotive business. They have 40 plus years experience. They have owned, managed and operated dealerships since I can remember. It instilled things in me which you cannot teach, and how to do things the right way. Keep it fun, simple and honest. I really enjoy working with the public and making people smile. I have a large customer base that truly believes in the way I operate and take care of my customers. They continue to return and send friends and family to my desk. I will continue to grow and take care of all my fantastic people.

  • Eric Wilkinson, New Car Sales Manager

    I have been in sales at Brighton Ford since June of 2009, first trying to learn to sell cars during the craziness of Cash 4 Clunkers. Since then, I have developed relationships with hundreds of customers. The goal is to keep things fun and honest. There's no reason why buying a car shouldn't be a great experience. My ultimate goal is to have you bring your friends and family to me, so I can take care of everyone in your family the same way I take care of everyone in my own.
    I am married and we have 3 dogs, I collect classic cars. My pride and joy is my 1970 Mustang Fastback.
    I was raised in a Ford family. My mother retired from Ford, and my father still works there. They have put food on my table my entire life, and I legitimately believe in their products. When you buy a car from me you're getting a lifetime of service. I hope to be able to assist you and make it a great experience getting your new or pre-owned vehicle!

  • Dominic Policella, New Car Sales Manager

    I have been working at Brighton Ford since 2007, where I started out as a New Car Porter and moved to the Body Shop and got the opportunity to learn more about Ford vehicles. From there I went to work as the Quick Lane Manager in our Service Department. Here I became even more knowledgeable of all the Ford products, inside and out. After that I became a Sales Consultant in January of 2012.  In May of 2015 I became the Assistant New Car Manager, and then in December of 2015 I was promoted to New Car Manager.
    I plan on making my sales career here at Brighton Ford a lifetime commitment. This is a great company to work for and to be a part of our unmatched commitment to our community and our customers. I pride myself on being very straight forward and honest with our customers. I will continue to grow and take care of all of our current and future customers.

I have been married for 13 years to the love of my life. Together we have 3 children and 2 grandchildren. Outside of work I still find myself enjoying cars. I own a few muscle cars and always participate in the Livingston County auto shows. It's always a good time. Sometimes you can find me flying my Ultralight (light weight aviation flyer), it's an experience unlike any other. I also enjoy fishing in the summer time. I feel as if I am a pillar to this community as I have been loyal to Brighton Ford, my customers and have never sold vehicles elsewhere. Customer satisfaction has always been a priority of mine, as my job starts when you leave with your new vehicle.

  • Mark Majeske, New & Used Car Sales

    I have worked at Brighton Ford since September of 2002.  I started my career here in the Service Department as an Advisor.  Five years ago I decided I want to try something different, so I started selling cars in the Pre-Owned Department.  I really enjoy my career change!

    If I helped you in service in the past, please stop in and let's get re-connected.  I would love to help you with any of your vehicle needs: be it a car purchase or setting an appointment for service, give me a call.  I want to be your car guy!        

  • Michael Tabacchi, New & Used Car Sales

    Brighton Ford and I met each other in 2002 after a dried up job economy in television marketing. I spent the previous 15 years putting together commercials and print marketing for companies in the area. As I was looking from New York to California for job opportunities when Brighton Ford gave me a chance to get back on my feet. Well, over a decade later I have created a clientele of over 3,000 and met some of the nicest people that are now personal friends that send me their friends and families to help them with all of their vehicle needs. And still keep my other passion of producing, writing and video editing as a hobby.
    I had a very bad experience and was taken advantage of when I was 27 years old at a different dealership when I purchased my first vehicle. When I started at Brighton Ford I told myself that in no way did I ever want a customer to have that type of experience. My business goal has been 100% customer service. I have noticed no matter where you go, whether the grocery store or fast food restaurant they all have lost the fundamentals of making the customer feel comfortable and appreciate them being there. I try to make each person feel like their purchase is special and make sure I follow up with service needs when needed. I don't believe that the deal is done once a contract is signed. I do my best to make sure I take care of their service needs, parts needs, make them aware of regular maintenance needs and have them call me for any auto questions they may have. 

    I grew up and graduated high school in Milford and reside in Fowlerville with my wife, daughter and 2 stepsons. We find it important to always stay active in the community and love all that Brighton Ford does to contribute.
    As for the Ford product, I am proud of the company as a whole. I have seen in just the 10 plus years of being in the business a time where we had to apologize for our quality to being the leader in quality of all the manufactures. I am excited to see us going from where we have been, where we are now, and where we are going. Ford is at the top of the game and the best product on the market. 
    I hope to work with you in the future!

  • Michael Detmer, New & Used Car Sales

    This is my 14th year in this crazy business, the majority of which with Ford.  Originally I grew up near Traverse City, and acquired a love of hunting, fishing and the outdoors.  But, as life would have it, I moved away with my wife and children to Kansas, then Florida and now back in Michigan.
    I've been married for almost 17 years and have 2 GREAT kids!  One thing my beautiful wife told me when I started in this business, "treat people like people and make their experience like a trip to Disney World…one they will have great memories of and will never forget!"  
    I also sign, so if you use sign language then I am the salesman for you!

    I have been at Brighton Ford since February 2018 and I love it here! I came from a small used car dealership. It was just me and the owner who worked there and I did it all! From working in the office to working in the shop fixing the vehicles. I learned a lot about the car business in my time there. I am a single mother to a handsome 9 year old boy, his name is Shawn Michael. He is why I am such a hard worker, I want to give him the life I never had!
    I am very excited to be a part of the team here. I am new to the Ford product, but I am learning every day! I love Ford, that is one of the reasons why I chose to work for this company.
