    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.

    Previously living in the Niagara Region for many years my husband and I decided about 6 years ago to move "north" to Midland for a quieter pace of life and to indulge our love of being near the water.  We are really enjoying living here and experiencing all that this beautiful part of Georgian Bay has to offer. As a life-long Honda car owner and a customer of Midland Honda since we moved here I was always impressed with the service I received when I brought my car in for service.  So when the opportunity arose to join the Midland Honda family as a Service Consultant I jumped at the chance to put my many years of customer service experience to work in an exciting, new environment.  I look forward to continuing to provide customers with the excellent service they've come to expect and to enhancing my skills in the automotive industry.

You will always see a smile on my face and I look forward to chatting with you and helping you with your service needs.  On my off time I enjoy going to concerts, travelling, going to classic car and motorcycle shows, being active with local sports, the community and being a manager for my sons hockey team...Go Centennials!!!

    Hello There, I moved from Newmarket hard to believe 5 years ago. I came from another Honda dealership in the GTA working as a apprentice but wanted something more in my career.

    I made a big change in my life personally and professional by moving to Midland and WOW how it has paid off , I quickly learned that Midland Honda and the community is where I belong and especially how Midland Honda is my home away from home....I really feel they are my family and everyone at the dealership are so easy going and down to earth.

    I am a massive Honda fanatic and very passionate about my career as a Honda Certified Technician and I look forward to taking great care of you and your Honda.

    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
