    Hi, my name is Mike Hall. 
    I was born and raised in Kelowna and have lived in the Okanagan Valley my entire life. I’ve always been an avid car enthusiast, and have also become passionate about auto racing in my spare time. I have been in the car sales industry for 15 years and couldn’t imagine doing anything else. I joined the August Motorcars team in 2015, and I couldn’t be more thrilled with my role as General Manager. When I’m not around cars you can find me spending quality time with my kids and family.

    Hi, my name is Matt Muise. 
    Cars have always been a huge passion in my life. Ever since I was a little kid I’ve dreamt of one day getting behind the wheel of an exotic car. After 15 years of selling vehicles, I finally had my chance when I was asked to join the team at August Luxury Motorcars to sell some of the most amazing cars in the world.  Raised in Kelowna, I’ve really come to love this city and the people in it. Between golf, dirt biking and snowboarding, I can always find something awesome to do here in the Okanagan. I’ve always been a people person, and I love chatting and dreaming with people about these amazing machines. Come by and say hi anytime!

    Sales Consultant & Inventory Manager

    Hi, my name is Mike Dawson. 
    Originally from Ontario, I moved to the Okanagan in 2009. Starting my new life here, I worked as a bar manager at the Keg Steakhouse for several years before I took my passion for hospitality and helping others to a higher level in auto sales, joining the August Motorcars team in 2015. Once I learned the ins and outs of the industry, I went after my dream career, selling the world’s finest cars, trucks, and SUV’s! There is no better place to achieve this than August Luxury Motorcars, and there’s no better place to be in Canada than in the Okanagan!

    Hi, my name is Adrienne Friesen. 
    Cars and sport bikes have always been a passion of mine!
    Having been around cars my entire life, you could say I’ve always had a need for speed! Originally from Manitoba, I moved to the Okanagan about 10 years ago. When I’m not at the dealership I love spending quality time with family and friends, being in the moment, and appreciating the little things in life.
    Since cars are such a passion of mine I’m confident in my abilities to provide a lot of value to my clients and team.

    Ciao! My name is Costa Galileos. 
    I was born and raised in Rome, Italy and moved to Canada when I was 15 years old. Cars have always been a big part of my life starting when I was just a little boy driving on my dad’s lap. I learned how to drive on my mom’s manual car when I was only 14 on the back roads of Rome! I knew at some point in my life I would be involved with cars in some sort of capacity. That opportunity came when I moved from Vancouver to the beautiful city of Kelowna, BC and I was fortunate to find an opportunity with August Luxury Motorcars to sell some of the word’s most amazing vehicles!

    Head Technician

    Introducing our Head Technician, Brett Rocha.
    Brett was born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

    Before moving to the beautiful Okanagan he owned and operated a family automotive repair center which was one of the first independent repair facilities in Winnipeg specializing in European vehicles.
    Being a 3rd generation mechanic, the in-shop training was always focused on such brands as Ferrari, Rolls Royce, Lamborghini etc.

    He still remembers spending his time as a kid helping out around the shop.
    With 24 years of experience in the trade, Brett’s Red Seal Journeyman certificate was followed up by several training programs which he traveled all through North America for.
    Bringing excitement to the trade and helping train apprentices has also been a priority for Brett.

    He has also served as chairman for the Provincial Automotive Trade Committee and helped develop the curriculum for the automotive trade.

    Enjoying an outdoor lifestyle is why Brett and his wife Melissa sold the house, left all they knew
    and planted their roots here in the Okanagan with their two kids, Tyra and Austin.
    They can often be found Hiking Crawford Falls, on their SUP boards, or just ordering a pizza to Sarsons beach and watching the sun go down.

    Tyra is a huge car enthusiast and they support local car shows as often as they can, often taking their 1972 Citroën SM or cruising slow and steady in their 1979 VW Westfalia.
