Yes…I am “The Voice” of Kia and record the radio ads you hear every month! I take special pride in helping our military members both past and present. I do everything I can to make your car buying experience stress-free and a little bit fun! Thanks for looking and I hope to hear from you soon

    My name is August Allen and I love to travel! State to state, within our beautiful state of MN, or out of the country. I just love the thrill of going somewhere new.  I am, what some people call a wine “snob”.  Customer service is my priority, when assisting you find the vehicle that fits your lifestyle. More than happy to assist in anyway I can even if you don’t end up leaving in a vehicle, maybe we just talk about wine!

    Trae Hobson here! I am one of the Business Managers at Kia of Mankato. That means after you pick out your new or pre-owned vehicle, you get to come see me. I take pride in making the “post purchase” portion of your car buying experience simple and easy to understand. I originally came to Kia of Mankato after spending some time as a server at a restaurant here in town. I worked in sales for 4 years and have been a business manager for 9 months . When I’m not at work I enjoy spending time with my 2 pups…Gabe and Charley! I’m also an avid sports fan and love all my Minnesota teams. When I can I’m on the golf course or in the gym. I know that paperwork can sometimes be confusing, so please don’t ever hesitate to give me a call or stop by with any questions you may have!

    See that fully bearded man walking around the dealership? That’s me! I’ve been with Kia of Mankato 5+ years. Started out as a salesperson and have worked my way up to be the “Finance Guy”. You meet with me once you make the decision to buy a vehicle, and we talk about your loan, and how you’ll be and stay covered during it. I’m certified through Kia and JM&A as a Business Management Professional. That’s a complicated way of saying I know a lot about service contracts, loans, and customer service. Outside of work, you probably won’t find me, because I’m most likely in the woods somewhere. If you have a question about the car buying experience, or finance information, contact me!

    Cameron here. I’m the stylish one of the group. I’m all about having fun. You know, having a couple drinks, preferably a good bottle of wine. I’m also known for my signature catch phrase: “Whammy!” As in: Gene Tenace to the plate…aaaand Whammy! People seem to like me because I am polite, and I am rarely late. I enjoy eating ice cream, and a good pair of slacks.

    If you see a short guy, with squinty eyes walking around the dealership, that’s me! My friends call me Squints, so you can feel free to do the same. I’ve been with Kia of Mankato 3+ years. Started out as a detailer and have worked my way up to be the “Marketing Guy!” You know all those ads you see on Facebook, Instagram, and Snap Chat? Yeah… you can get mad at me for interrupting your feed. I’ve been certified through Kia for 2+ years, and recognized as a Senior Elite Consultant. That’s a fancy way of saying I know a lot about cars, and customer service. Outside of work, you’ll probably find me at chipotle, at the gym, with my head in a book, or playing Xbox (Want to play?). If you have question about a vehicle, the car buying experience, or marketing, contact me!
