For more than 25 years, Stanley Dennis has been quietly, diligently getting it done at Chastang Ford. His official title is Back Counter Parts Sales Person, but for Dennis his job is anything that needs doing. His hard work and dedication to his job is equally matched by his enthusiasm and fervor for serving his church, his community and his family.
Chastang Ford COO Patrick Chastang knows first-hand Dennis’ work ethic and leadership abilities. After all, Dennis managed the warehouse and was Patrick’s first boss. That experience made a lasting impression on Patrick.
“He has a good attitude and is always smiling. He goes 100 miles a minute and always looks out for the best interest of the dealership and our customers,” Chastang said.
Dennis’ day starts early, often before 5 a.m. and he stays until the very last technician is finished for the day. He doesn’t do it for accolades, rather it’s innate to who he is.
“I like helping people,” Dennis said. “If I’m at work or at my church I just like to go above and beyond. That’s what it’s all about.”
When he’s not at the dealership, Dennis is with his family, taking his son to homeschool basketball tournaments across the country and serving at his home parish, Redemption Bible Church.
It’s not an accident that Dennis is known for how hard he works, and the connections he has made over the years from that ethic. His reliability benefits others, even during difficulty. Dennis is often the first person at the dealership immediately after a hurricane, opening the shop to assist customers after the storm
“I believe in spreading your knowledge to other people and helping them understand how they can live a better life,” Dennis said.
