While he has a background as a restaurant manager and chef, he decided to move into sales a few years ago. He started with insurance sales and then moved into vehicle sales.

“A friend of mine turned me onto Runde’s —he heard it was a great company to work for, so I went for it,” Donavon said. “People seem caring and eager to help. I look forward to being here for a very long time.”

In his spare time, Donavon likes to spend time with his family: his fiancé Susan, her son Mikey and daughter Stephanie and his daughters Leigha and Serena. He also cooks and draws.

Donavon’s favorite vehicle is the 1957 Chevy Bel-Air.

“It has been my dream since I was about 8 years old and saw one at the local truck stop near Cherry Valley,” he said. “That was also the start of my love for Chevy.”
