Six years ago, Matt conducted a fair amount of research on Calgary automotive dealerships to decide which one he wanted to build his career within. Fortunately for us, Northland VW was and has remained at the top of the list. Matt has been recognized as a Sales Leader by the AutoCanada Chairman’s Club and prides himself on transparency, efficiency and execution. He recognizes the level of trust that clients put in us and he strives to exceed their expectations every day. Outside of work, Matt loves to haul his two boys (aged 4 and 6) around in their VW Atlas, doing anything outdoors from hiking, swimming, camping, biking and anything else that allows us to get outside and enjoy this beautiful country. Matt was promoted to Sales Manager in 2019 and most recently to General Sales Manager a result of his dedication to the dealership and our clients.

Nikki has been an essential member of our sales team for over three years. For someone that had no interest in vehicles, let alone Volkswagens, Nikki now claims ‘lifer’ status at Northland VW. Once she learnt about the VW brand and all that it has to offer, she was hooked. Nikki genuinely believes that the vehicle buying experience can be a very fun and easy process if your sales professional takes the time to understand what the customers’ needs and wants are. You wouldn’t be able to tell by her size, but Nikki is a major foodie. She is also a hardcore video gamer, with a special love for FPS games.

Originally from Brazil, Fernanda has been in Canada for 7 years. Even though she was a government employee in her home country, she still had a love and affinity for Volkswagens. Her first and favourite car was her 1979 Air Cooled Beetle, a car very close to her heart. In fact her family had 3 of them in her household. After moving to Canada, obtaining a VW was at the top of her list of priorities, and the VW Tiguan was her VW of choice for the Canadian winters that she has grown to love. Fernanda came to us like many of our staff do. First as a loyal VW customer, and now a loyal brand ambassador. Fernanda will blow you away with her energy, friendly smile, and great South American accent.
I have been working at Northland since October of 2016. Working at Northland VW has been an absolute treat, and everyone here is like family. I’ve been passionate about the brand since day one of driving. Five Volkswagen’s later and there’s nothing else I’d rather take adventuring, whether it’s kayaking, hiking or travelling. I love going out to the mountains and spending quality time with family and friends. I can’t think of a more aligned brand for my personal lifestyle and I’m thankful I get to be a part of it.

After 7 years in sales reaching the VW Master level, Manou graduated to Financial Services Manager and will wow you with her knowledge, friendly service and smile. When Manou is not at the dealership she can be found carving up the slopes on her snowboard, adventuring with her Golden Doodle Charlie in her VW GTI or just enjoying the great outdoors.
