Loyal Janesville Customer Leonard Holub Picked Up His Seventh Truck From Runde Auto Group

Leonard Holub

Leonard Holub, of Janesville, WI, drove away in his seventh truck from Runde Chevrolet today!

His latest truck is a 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 Z71 4WD LTZ Dbl Cab.

“It’s a great vehicle,” he said. “It’s gets good mileage, it’s dependable, and I love the styling.”

Leonard does a lot of long distance driving to and from various farms he owns in other cities.

“I’d rather drive this than a car — it is as comfortable or more than many cars today,” he said.

Leonard drives two hours to buy his trucks at Runde Auto Group. His salesperson is Dave Frazier.

“He’s treated me very fairly,” Leonard said. “He’s honest and has treated me well.”

In his free time, Leonard is the president and treasurer of the Blackhawk Toms Turkey Federation in Janesville. The conservation group is a chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation.

“The NWTF brought wild turkeys back here again,” he said. “They were extinct and in the ’70s, they brought them back to this area.”

The group has their annual banquet on April 6 at the UAW Local 95 Union Hall in Janesville. Doors open at 5 p.m. and dinner is at 6:30 p.m. Click here for more information about the event.

You can be sure Leonard will be there with his new Silverado!

Happy motoring, Leonard!

On Four Wheels Instead of Two: Brian ‘Chopper’ Hansen Drives Away in an Equinox

Brian Hansen

Brian Hansen, better known as “Chopper,” was all smiles today when he left Runde Chevrolet in East Dubuque!

He scored a great deal on a 2017 Chevy Equinox Premier AWD from salesperson Corissa Frederick. Plus, he was Corissa’s first sale!

“She was a great gal to work with,” Brian said. “Corissa’s the bomb.”

Brian, who lives in East Dubuque, called a few days ago to inquire about how spacious the Equinox was.

“I’ve always driven Chevys,” he said. “I like dealing with Runde’s and I heard good things about the Equinox. I liked that it had a six-cylinder and I love the interior.”

When he isn’t in his daily driver, Brian loves riding his motorcycle, a 2017 Harley Davidson Electra Glide Ultra Special. He works at the Rock Island Arsenal Fire Department as a firefighter and paramedic, and also at Unity Point Health System in Rock Island.

Happy motoring, Chopper!

Corissa Frederick Joins the Runde Chevrolet Sales Team

Corissa Frederick desk

We are excited to welcome Corissa Frederick to the sales team at Runde Chevrolet in East Dubuque!

Corissa was born and raised in the Dubuque area and is very active with local organizations.

“I spend a lot of time in the community and am on the Board of Directors for Dubuque Main Street and the Chair of Dubuque and All That Jazz,” she said. “Community involvement is a large part of my life.”

Corissa has nearly 20 years of banking experience, so she is very familiar with the finance side of the automotive industry.

“I was really surprised to see how many similarities there were between what I did with customers at the bank and here,” she said. “I was also surprised to see how much ‘homework’ consumers do before coming in to make a purchase.”

Her enthusiasm and energy have helped make the career change seamless.

“I have worked in the corporate banking world for years and have never felt more at home than I do at Runde,” she said. “The employees have been extremely supportive and very willing to assist. I love the laid-back atmosphere and it seems our customers do as well. It is everything I expected it would be and more.”

Corissa has three children, two girls and a boy. Her son is finishing his first year of college and her girls are in grade school and middle school.

She loves trucks — her favorite is the Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD.

“I am a truck girl and love driving big vehicles,” she said. “I have not kept a vehicle longer than three years, which is part of my reasoning for wanting to work in the automotive industry.”

If you are in the market for a vehicle, give Corissa a call!

“I want to do what is right for the customer 100% of the time,” she said. “I will never rush or push a sale and will work for the customer on both sides. My intentions are to be sure that the customer is satisfied when they leave in hopes that they will come back or send a friend or family member my way.”

Contact Corissa at 866-735-5200 ext. 237 or cfrederick@rundeautogroup.com.
