    Sales Manager

    Conner Nielsen is an example of how Blake Fulenwider is dedicated to finding the right person for the right job and putting people on career paths that help them develop into leaders.

But Conner considers his biggest claim to fame is his semi-pro career as a snowboarder. He says he's "kind of a big deal." We're still waiting for proof of that. In the meantime, we'll brag on Conner because he holds the record for having the highest scores in the company for F&I school.
