Chris T.

Service Manager

Chris has had an interesting journey here at Matt’s. He started originally in March of 2017, had a brief time off and began again in September of 2019. He’s a native of Minot, ND. He began his work in the Automotive Industry as a Service Advisor at a dealership. However, he loved making the switch to Matt’s because of the constant growth and learning his job allows him. But, outside of Matt’s, he loves taking his weekends slow and enjoying every minute.


Jessica K.

Service Manager

Jess has been with Matt’s since June of 2018. She loves Matt’s because of the coworkers she gets to work with everyday, the constant learning, and all the customers she encounters on a daily basis. Free time? Jess has never heard of it, she’s always on the move. With three boys at home she hardly has any time to think, but when she can get away for a little bit she enjoys quilting, going to the lake, and playing lots of bingo.


Justin H.

Collision/Service Manager

Justin began at Matt’s as a Service and Collision Manager in April of 2019. Prior to starting at Matt’s he was a finance manager and power sports dealer. He loves the company’s ability to grow and how it always seems to be expanding. Fargo is where he has spent most of his life, and where he grew up. When he is not working at Matt’s and being an awesome Manager, he loves spending his time enjoying the summer air and relaxing.


William F.

Service Advisor

Will started with us in August of 2019. He loves Matt’s because of our awesome community involvement and how great of a family environment we put forth every day. Will came to us from Velben, SD and prior to starting at Matt’s, he was a Service Advisor for a dealership. When Will is not working he enjoys being a rockstar coach for his kids’ sports and playing golf.

Esther S.

Brand Specialist

Esther didn’t stray far from her hometown of Pelican Rapids, and has been apart of the Matt’s Auto family since October 2018. Prior to starting at Matt’s she was going to school and working at a retailer in town. Most people say retail is something else, but Esther loves shopping so it was the best. She loves Matt’s because of the variety of people we have and the awesome set of skills each person brings. Otherwise, outside of work she enjoys watching TV, movies and TikToks. Playing games and going to concerts are also some of her favorite pass times.
