Aron Welsh was born and raised in Nanaimo BC. After spending the first 15 years of his life in Nanaimo he moved to Campbell River where he finished high school at Carihi. He then moved back to Nanaimo and attended Vancouver Island University’s Bachelor of Science program. After his second year in 2006 a unique opportunity arose, he was offered a sales position with Automax Superstore, a Division of Steve Marshall Ford, as a vehicle Salesperson. Aron took the job, expecting to work until the end of August and then return to university. However he realized he loved selling cars! After 6 months as a Salesman he was promoted to Non-Prime Finance Manager at Steve Marshall Ford, Aron spent the next 4 years helping people with credit challenges get good reliable vehicles at affordable payments.
In 2011 he was promoted to Senior Finance Manager for the dealership. In this position he arranged financing and sales contracts for over 40 customers a month. He dealt with prime and non-prime credit, leases, loans, fleet and commercial business as well as assisted the Sales Manager in ordering vehicles and managing sales personnel. In 2015 Aron took a step off of the regular automotive sales career path and decided to go back into sales, he built a substantial personal Facebook presence with local Vancouver Island residents and got to work providing finance solutions and superior customer service, he was responsible for the vehicle sale, finance and insurance and after sale customer care. Essentially Aron was running his very own sales department within Steve Marshall Ford.
With this experience it was a natural progression to take things to the next level and partnership was arranged to bring Pacific Nations Auto Sales and Finance to life! Aron is extremely excited about this new chapter in his career and looks forward to forming long lasting and meaningful relationships with customers at Pacific Nations.
In his personal life, Aron has a beautiful Fiancé and they plan to get married in the spring of 2019. They’ve got 2 dogs, Blaze and Nephthys, and enjoy hiking with and training their pooches. Aron enjoys practicing math, playing the piano, weight lifting and woodworking in his spare time.
“I can’t wait to meet new people every day, I’m really blessed that my work introduces me to hundreds if not thousands of new people every year and I really want to form lifelong relationships with people. Buying a vehicle can be an daunting experience for people, but when you know and trust the person you’re buying it from it becomes what it should be, a fun and exciting moment in life!” –Aron Welsh
