Originally from the Lower Mainland, I have lived in communities all across BC. I have been here on the Island now for nearly 4 years and have loved every minute of it. I got my start in the Automotive industry as a Detailer. After 3 years of cleaning cars I decided it was time to start selling them instead! I've had a love for vehicles since a young age, and I let that passion flow into my work. When you deal with me expect clear, honest and transparent service. I have a strong belief in the phrase "Treat others how you want to be treated" Stop by our beautiful dealership today and we can talk cars!

I started working in the Automobile industry as a temporary job and I'm still here after almost 30 years. I didn't plan on staying in the car business for this long but when you fall in love with something plans change. I started in sales initially but moved to the business office 15 years ago. I've had the pleasure of working for the GAIN Group for the last 5 years. First with their German premium brands in Victoria and now In Nanaimo. I bought my first premium brand BMW shortly after I entered the car business . From then on German premium brands became my car of choice with my last one being a Mercedes-Benz. I truly believe we offer the best luxury automobiles available and it is a pleasure to work for a company that puts their customers first and believes in first class service for their clients from beginning to end. I look forward to making many new friends and helping them with the buying process as their Client delivery specialist.

Mike Ciurka | Shuttle Driver

I grew up in Winnipeg.  Hot summer days and day trips to Grand Beach occupied much of my time but the long cold winters meant hibernation.  This got me dreaming about the West Coast and the mild climate. I eventually gathered the courage and moved to Vancouver where I worked as a Network Technician for a major wireless company.  I met my wife Leigh in Vancouver and after a little convincing we were off to the Sunny Okanagan. We lived in Vernon for 25 years raising our family and enjoying everything the Okanagan Valley has to offer.  When our children decided to enroll in programs at UVIC we got the urge to move again and get back to the west coast lifestyle. Nanaimo was the city of choice because of the natural beauty and closeness to our kids. Winnipeg is my home town and the place that sparked my interest in cars and martial arts. I have been a backyard mechanic working on cars and participating in sanctioned drag racing since I was a teen.  My other passion is Shotokan Karate. I have been practicing and teaching karate for over thirty years. I am currently an instructor for the Nanaimo Parks and Recreation. My wife Leigh, myself and our French Bulldog Rousseau currently enjoy hiking and day trips to all the incredible places the island has to offer.  I continue to practice karate, attend car shows and now I’m taking sailing lessons. Now that I am semi-retired I look forward to more travel and maybe a sailboat one day?

Accounting

Greg Bombardir | Dealership Accountant

I was born and raised in Powell River and moved to Nanaimo in 2006 to pursue my degree in accounting. After obtaining my degree I spent 9 years working in public practice but decided to move to the automotive industry in 2018 for a fresh challenge. I am beyond thrilled at the opportunity to work as the accounting department manager for Subaru Nanaimo and be part of an amazing group. When not buried in paperwork you can find me spending time with my amazing wife and children.

Danish Kaila | Accounting Assistant

I was born and raised in Punjab, India and came to Canada in 2014 to complete my bachelor’s degree in Computer Science & Business. After my graduation I followed my interest and stepped into the automobile industry in 2017. It’s been an amazing journey since then and with that same passion, I joined GAIN Group in November 2019 as an accounting assistant.

I always believed that “the best people to surround yourself with are the people that bring out the best in you” and I feel lucky to join such an amazing and passionate team.
