At Mercedes-Benz of Chicago we constantly challenge our people each and every day with many potential growth opportunities. This is the Fletcher Jones Difference.
This week’s Employee Spotlight, we talked with Travis Yonn, our very own Finance Manager here at Mercedes-Benz of Chicago! Get to know more about Travis below!
Mercedes-Benz of Chicago: What’s your current title and how long have you been with the Mercedes-Benz of Chicago?
Travis Yonn: I’m currently the Finance Manager and have been with Mercedes-Benz of Chicago for roughly 5 ½ years now!
MBC: How long have you been in the automotive industry and what was the journey to where you are now?
TY: I’ve been in the industry for over 22 years now and originally started in sales at a Volkswagen dealership. From there, I moved to become a Sales Manager and eventually to become a Finance Manager.
MBC: What’s your favorite part about working in the Fletcher Jones Family?
TY: Not all dealerships are created equal. Fletcher Jones creates a sense of community and makes room for everybody. The new facility, downtown location and the heartening cooperative effort that is unique in a family ran organization makes this place a price!
MBC: What’s is currently your favorite vehicle?
TY: It’s definitely the new 2018 Mercedes-Benz E 400 Coupe
MBC: What’s the best part about the city of Chicago?
TY: The architecture, the bike trails, the beaches, my friends (and fellow foodies) and shall I say, the “Midwestern Sensibilities.” Also as Sinatra once said “Chicago is why I just grin like a clown – It’s my kind of town”
MBC: Any favorite restaurants in Chicago or the local surrounding area?
TY: Bavette’s Bar and Boeuf – no questions about it. North Pond is fabulous too. Okay, Les Normades as well… and while we’re at it RL Restaurant too.
MBC: What are your hobbies?
TY: I’m almost never home. During my free time, I’m out and about being energized by this incredible city. Wandering, exploring (and sometimes trespassing) throughout this metropolis does a lot for me! Can wine tasting or eating ice-cream be a hobby too?
MBC: And finally, what keeps you motivated?
TY: Amazon’s Alexa and the ever-growing list. It assails me each and every morning with reminders that keep me in constant motion. You can’t stay stagnant when audible promptings are constantly being conveyed by a heartless puck.
