We are excited to welcome our newest salesperson at Runde Chevrolet in East Dubuque, Jacob Puls!
Jacob is the great grandson of founder Alfred Runde, thus a fourth generation Runde. He will be starting his career as Tim Runde’s sales assistant.
Jacob recently graduated from Augustana College with a double major in Finance and Marketing, along with a minor in Economics. Jacob, who played football for four years at Augustana, loves sports.
“I am a huge football fan and college basketball fan, but also enjoy watching the Blackhawks and Cubs,” he said. “I have been a Fighting Illini fan since my grandfather Paul Runde introduced me to them when I was a young kid and really follow the football and basketball teams closely. Besides that I enjoy spending time with my girlfriend and buddies whenever I can.”
He grew up in East Dubuque and has two brothers.
“I have a twin brother who went to the same college as me and was my roommate throughout college as well,” Jacob said. “My younger brother also went to the same college and will be a sophomore next year. My dad works in the IT Department at Runde Auto Group so I get to see him every day. My mother is a Special Education Teacher at Carver Elementary. My whole family is big into sports.”
His favorite part of sales so far is meeting new people.
“I love interacting with the people and getting to know them on a personal level,” he said. “It is fascinating to talk with people about different topics and their lifestyle and hobbies.”
He recently leased a Chevrolet Malibu from Runde’s and said it is his favorite vehicle at the moment.
“The vehicle has lots of options and is a smooth ride,” Jacob said.
