    After over a decade in the Ontario Government as a public servant, I decided that it was time for a change.  I love meeting new people, and more importantly, helping people.  Purchasing a car is often referred to as the "second largest" purchase, but for me, your vehicle is of the upmost importance.  The vehicles we choose have a huge impact on the way we live and making the wrong choice can have a huge impact on the quality of our lives.  So with that in mind, I'm here to help.  I want you to find the right vehicle, for the right price with your best interest at heart, so please come in and see me.  My name is Chris Gubert, and I am the right person to help you navigate through your options.

    After backpacking through Europe as a 20 year old I came back needing a job. I was hired by a Chrysler store as a junior service advisor on a trial period never expecting I would be in for life. All these years later I am happy to say I am and enjoying every minute.

    From Chrysler I moved on to a long career with BMW for over 19 years. It has been a great ride meeting many wonderful people along the way.

    On my spare time I enjoy golfing and exploring the world.

    I am very excited to now be working with a fantastic team here at Midland Honda. I am confident we will achieve great things together!

    Hi, my name is Wayne. I grew up around the Midland area. After high school, I went to the city for a couple of years. I didn't enjoy city life that much, so I moved back to Georgian Bay. 

    I started to work for the flour mill in town and stayed there for forty years. After I retired, I started to work for Midland Honda as a driver. I really like being part of the team. 

    The people I work for are great and the people I drive are just as great and friendly. Hope you feel the same about me
