Josée Bélanger-Leroux has had a passion for cars since the moment she started driving at 12 years of age. That passion has grown to follow in the footsteps of her father, Gabe Bélanger, who founded Bélanger Ford Lincoln Centre in 1971. She has occupied many different positions within the organization, learning the business from the bottom up. She also acquired first-hand business experience by owning a clothing shop which she grew substantially during her ownership. Josée’s strengths lie in her ability to deal with customers and staff, as well as manage difficult situations under pressure. She has a keen sense of what customers require and ensures that all of their needs are met. Under her leadership, the dealership continues to grow and garner national awards for superior customer service. Her love for the business is only surpassed by the love for her family, including her two grand-daughters.
Robert loves the car industry and has been a part of it with Belanger Ford since 1989. Rob considers himself lucky to have an amazing wife who is, amongst many great qualities, also a wonderful pastry chef! He's the proud parent of three, one son and two daughters and honoured to now be called a "Grandparent." On a personal note, Rob is touched by his daughter's impressive natural talent in motherhood - which serves as testimony to how well raised she was, surely a parent's proudest accomplishment. Rob loves to golf and should be on the PGA tour soon enough. With a great Team and Accounting staff at his side, his responsibilities at work seem like a breeze, especially since people know they can always "count" on him.

He's a real adrenalin junkie and has a wealth of ford knowledge.

Financial Sales Manager
Yves started his professional career as a credit analyst for a large bank in London, Ontario over 15 years ago. In 2004, his first born son came along and the family decided to head back to Sudbury to raise him in Northern Ontario closer to family. In Sudbury, Yves became a Financial Services Manager with a high volume dealership. The better part of the last twelve years however, were spent as a dealer services consultant with a division of IA Dealer Services. In addition to serving dealerships throughout Northern Ontario, he began a working relationship with Belanger Ford in 2013. After 12 years of travel in a consulting role, it was time to set some roots closer to home when an offer was made to join the team at Belanger Ford. Interesting notes: Yves’ grandmother (a Belanger) is the first cousin of the dealership’s founder, Gabe Belanger. She had a picture of my great grandfather with his brothers sitting in the first Ford sold in the area many years ago. In his free time, Yves can be found behind the bench of his youngest son’s hockey team or at camp on Manitoulin Island. He also shares a love of music and the Toronto Maple Leafs with his sons, Noel & Ben.

When Patrick is not selling he is splitting his time as Assistant Sales Manager. Helping construct deals and ordering all the vehicles you see at Belanger Ford.

However, maybe not so much on the trails, as Patrick recently just became a father to a beautiful girl that takes up his time, which he doesn't mind at all!
