  • Jack TerHar
    Owner
    303.469.1801 x.6514

    Jack joined his dad's dealership in 1970 and was quickly shown to be a natural in the automotive business. His success at building a wonderful family and business stems from an innate ability to make friends and positively influence those around him. His close relationship with the manufacturers has led him to having a unique perspective on the automotive industry. On his down time, he is an avid golfer and loves to travel. More than anything, he is proud of what Sill-TerHar has become, and values that his entire family is involved in its continued growth. He is pictured here with his wife Penny. 


    Favorite Car:
    2003 Ford GT

  • Greg Larson
    Partner
    303.469.1801 x.129

    Greg's a Broomfielder through and through. He joined the staff in 2002 as a manager and has become known for his gruff exterior, however most of us know that if you don't let it phase you, you ca get to his, nougaty center. As any well-versed leader, he commands respect and returns affection. He's a lot like Batman in that way. He loves the outdoors and his fifth wheel that takes "camping."

  • Shane Gilmore
    Mazda Manager
    303.469.1801 x.780

    Shane started at Sill-TerHar in 2005. Growing up in Broomfield Shane used to look longingly at the great working environment that was Sill-TerHar and vowed that one day he'd be top salesman there. Little did he know that was not to be, so he became a manager. Also, interesting side note, he went to middle school with my wife, but you don't know me... so maybe that's just interesting to me.

  • Steve Eiter
    Mazda Service Manager
    303.469.1801 x.770

    What can I say about Steve?  Sometimes there is an employee who is so exemplary, so outstanding, so truly concerned about his customers, that words fail.  And sometimes, that employee is also such a mystery that I literally can't come up with anything that I know about him to write a short bio.  To that end, I know that Steve started at our Quick Lane in March, 2019, and was so good with customers, and adding numbers together, that he was promoted to the Mazda Service drive shortly there after.  I can say that Steve's love of black clothing is apparent, and I suspect is impacted by his many years working in the dead of night as a member of an elite group of seals.  Not the Navy group, just literally seals.  Steve would dress up in his black wet suit and join his aquatic friends as they would swim through the night, keeping the bay free of sharks, and feasting on small fish.  As we all know, night swimming is a young man's game, and so Steve joined us to care for our customers the way he cared for the swimmers in the bay who might be threatened by nasty sharks.  Today all that remains of his past is his love of black clothes and the whiskers on his chin.

  • Steve Gates
    Mazda Parts Manager
    303.469.1801 x.772

    Steve started in 2013 as our Mazda-parts guy, and sits in a small blue room with a window that is reminiscent of a drive-through. I keep hoping that he'll put on a turban and do an impression of Zoltan from the movie Big, I think he could pull it off in his little blue room. When he's not telling fortunes, Steve enjoys woodworking, building all sorts of great things out of wood like this table, these eating implements, or this chair.

  • Thomas Lopez Del Carril
    Mazda Service Advisor
    303.469.1801 x. 6526

    Thomas (pronouced without the H, not like the tank engine, toe moss) started at the dealership in 2018 and has been a guiding Mazda customers through their service experience ever since.  He is originally from Brazil, or Argentina, or maybe Bangladesh... Where ever it is, he's got almost no accent any more, so don't worry about being able to have wonderful conversations with him.  Unless you only speak Japanese, he may struggle with that.  Fortunately he is fluent in the language of customer service and that shines every day he interacts with our customers.  If you need someone who knows cars, and how to get your Mazda fixed right, but doesn't speak Japanese, Thomas (toe moss) is your guy!

  • Dani Schwartz
    Mazda Sales Consultant
    303.469.1801 x.762

    Dani joined in 2018 and started as the vital role of receptionist/administrative assistant at Mazda.  This generally means that she is the only one at Mazda who knows exactly what's going on.  Many people know their departments, but only Dani will know all.  She loves EVERYTHING music related. She was in a rock band in high school. Originally from Castle Rock, she loves to hike and sing karaoke and do makeup. Maybe all three at the same time?


    Favorite car: Maserati. All of them.

  • Paul Farrow
    Mazda Sales Associates
    303.469.1801 x.764

    If you ever have the pleasure of shopping with Paul, be sure to ask for the story regarding the unicorn on the back of an elephant tattoo.  That one really resonates with me.  He would like to get more tattoos, like maybe one of Bob Newhart snowboarding down his back, or I bet he'd look great with one of the works of Pierre Soulages on his neck.  Paul also enjoys his 1974 Chevelle, he cruises around in it whenever possible. It doesn't run, so really he's just sitting in his garage, but someday, it will be something special.

  • Ryan Mcgehee
    Mazda Sales Associate
    303.469.1801 x.104

    Ryan joined us in 2017.  He came to us from Dallas, Texas, but he doesn't have a thick accent, so it's pretty easy to work with him.  It doesn't say how long he was in Texas, so maybe Dallas was just a layover on his flight here? It says moved from Texas, but technically when you're in a plane, you're moving.  I'm going to go with that, let's say he's from Arizona, that would explain the lack of a southern accent better. He says that he likes to mountain bike, but he did it more in Texas, which proves that he doesn't come from Texas, because Texas doesn't have mountains.

  • Alex Dagger
    Mazda Sales Associates
    303.469.1801 x.163

    Alex's work at Sill-TerHar can be traced all the way back to working as a lot-tech for our Luxury department. Going from luxury lot-tech to assistant to our Volvo and Luxury leaders, Jack found his way to the Mazda building as a salesman. Who knows where he will go next at Sill-TerHar. He did say he enjoys cruising around town with his friends, so maybe he'll begin representing these brands at the car shows?

  • Tom Perales
    Mazda Sales Associate
    303.469.1801 x.767

    Tom started at Sill-TerHar in 2007, and despite his young appearance he is a father of six kids, and grandfather of four.  He's a quiet and hard worker which make him a great asset to the Sill-TerHar team.

     

    Favorite Car:
    He says none, but I suspect he loves a good stretch limo so he can get all his family in there.

  • Jordan Winner
    Mazda Service Scheduler
    303.469.1801

    Jordan joined Sill-TerHar in early 2019, but the secret is, this is her second time around.  Originally Jordan was a receptionist and service scheduler in our Ford service department where she wowed with her friendly smile and intricate artwork.  It was that artwork that took her away from us as she pursued her dream of being a parade float make up artist.  She wasn't doing the make up of the people on the parades, just the giant balloons that float down the streets of New York City during the Macy's day parade.  Sadly, doing perfect blush blending on a 40 foot tall Betty Boop balloon once a year was not quite enough to sustain the high fashion lifestyle that is living in Manhattan.  We were overjoyed at her failure!  Not her failure actually.  Just the fact that it meant she could come back to us and help make the service experience for Mazda customers the absolute best it could be!
