Jason Perry
General Manager

Being a self-starter, I started washing cars at Vin Devers August of 1989. My first day on the job became a passion that will always be with me. Here I am on day 1, 18 years old with not a clue what to do with the rest of my life when I was assigned to wash this 'Brand New" 1989 300 SEL. I remember that day like it was yesterday...The color was Smoke Silver with Dark Red Leather. WOW, the car was beautiful...AND its leather smell is something that will be with me forever. Every once in a while, I catch that smell, and it brings me right back to day 1...Unbelievable! Anyway, January of 1990 I moved up to being a Service Advisor. What an eye opening experience. Being in the customer service industry is truly an experience I think everyone should do at some point in their life...This makes you appreciate when someone goes out of ones way to help. By the middle to end of 1995, I am wanting to move up to sales but the only problem is...They have a full staff of Audi sales consultants. Well, as luck would have it, one of our senior sales reps (30 Years) up and retires. Giving me the opportunity I've always wanted so January of 1996 my Journey continues...I am now selling Audi...YES! Fast forward 15 years and I am now the General Manager for Vin Devers Autohaus of Sylvania. We sell and service the greatest cars on the planet. It makes me proud every day to look back and see where I have come from, but it makes me even more proud to know where I am going!

Brian Lavoy
Pre-Owned Vehicle Sales Director

I've spent my entire automotive industry work experience here at Vin Devers selling cars. I am currently working on my 25th year. Although I enjoy vacations, being a part of outdoor activities and spending time with my family, I am boundless at selling all makes and models of high line vehicles. I like to show potential customers the rigorous inspection & recondition process we put our cars through so we can offer the greatest pre-wned vehicles for the most competitive price. I have been married for 10 years and I am a proud father of 2 beautiful girls.

Keith Solomon
Service Director

I've been in the automotive industry for 31 years and worked at Vin Devers for 19 months. Working as the Service Director is not my job it is my passion! Although I enjoy hunting, fishing, dog training, cycling and gardening on a daily basis I truly get a rush out of helping people. It gives me great satisfaction providing a service experience that is truly second to none. I am proud to be part of a winning team. I would invite anyone just starting in the business. I feel they would experience how "True Exceptional Service" should be provided to a client. This would give them a huge advantage in the automotive/service business. Automobiles have been my lifelong passion and the focus of my career for the past 31 years. A sincere dedication to excellence is an overriding priority.

Rick Zerner
New Vehicle Sales Consultant

I started working at Vin Devers in 2000. Having never been in the automotive industry before, it was a small adjustment to my life spent practicing law. Fast forward to present day, it only seems like yesterday when I walked through the door for the first time. I have a love for both our brands and it grows stronger each day, just like their reputations. What I have enjoyed most these years is forming lasting relationships and meeting so many new people.

                I have lived in Toledo Ohio most of my life and even attend college at University of Toledo College of Law. I married my wife Nancy in April of 1971. She gets credit for my well-stocked candy dish. We have 2 amazing children, Loryn and Robb and 2 perfect grandchildren, Alexander and Ellie. We look forward to traveling, to spend time with our family. I also enjoy good food and spending time with my wife.  In my free time I love golfing, tennis and platform tennis.

Carlton Carter
New Vehicle Sales Consultant

                I started with Vin Devers in 2013 as an Intern while studying at The University of Toledo. My love for cars has only intensified as I work around the best brands in the world. My passion for the brands and helping our customers led me to the role of Delivery Coordinator. I was so pleased to be working one on one with customers and showing them all the amazing things their new vehicles can do as well as how to unleash the raw power of performance in the brands. Here I am present day, still amazed by our brands and how forward thinking and progressive they are, now getting to sell them as part of the new car sales department.

               I was raised in Royal Oak Michigan before moving to my current hometown of Temperance Michigan. I have a love for writing and I also enjoy singing. My favorite sport is boxing. I have big goals and one day I would hope to be an entrepreneur.
