For Kathy Fichtner, working in the car industry is a family affair.
Growing up, Kathy's father raced Fords (a fact we won't hold against her at this Chevy Montana dealership). Now, her husband Ken works alongside her here at Denny Menholt Chevrolet.
We interviewed Ken Fichtner back in 2016 — but considering Kathy has been working here for practically as long, we figured it was about time our readers got to know her, too!
Kathy assists customers with pre-owned vehicles, GM Certified Pre-Owned vehicles, and new Chevrolet vehicles. She is also a certified Fleet Sales Consultant for commercial vehicles and is even an eight-time winner of the prestigious General Motors Mark of Excellence award.
