“COACH WES” My time here at Crown Mazda has truly been a rewarding experience both personally and professionally for me. Having had customers become friends after investing in a quality Mazda product gives me joy knowing that they have made the right choice in their vehicle selection.
I believe that it is important that you know a little about who you are dealing with before making your appointment with me. I am the proud dad of three boys, Adam who is married to Lindsay and he is with the RCMP in British Columbia as well as Parker and Spencer who are here in Winnipeg. Upon graduating from High School I wanted to be a home builder so I entered the Carpentry Apprenticeship Program at Red River. After completing this program I entered university to learn more about running a business and graduated in 1974 with a Major in Administrative Studies.
Life will take you on a journey if you keep putting one foot in front of the other as upon graduating from university I joined the Royal Bank and worked mostly in District Systems and Real Estate Resources were I got interested in the Office Furniture business and left the bank and joined Business Furnishings were I dealt mostly with large national companies. I also started another company called Officeways which I ran successfully for many years.
After several years of retirement I had the opportunity to join Crown Mazda in May of 2006. In 2007 I joined the Mazda Master Sales Club, Mazda Peak Performer in 2009 and Currently belong to the Mazda Elite Club. I have been Mazda Canada’s number one Salesperson in our Region for the last number of years by basically treating you my customer the way that I would like to be treated.
I have coached hockey for 31 years and love fishing and playing golf. If you want to be treated with respect, fairness, honesty and with a little ZOOM ZOOM then call “Coach Wes”.

Brendon has been with the Dilawri group since February 2010. He always had a passion for anything with wheels and an engine. Since he received his driver’s license when he was 16, he was always “the driver” among friends and family. If you wanted to go anywhere he would be happy to take you there. He had many experiences from off-road vehicles, motorcycles, dirt bikes, sea-doos and snowmobiles. When he was looking to get into the automobile industry it was very important that he found a place that shares that same passion. Brendon found that in Mazda. A company that “puts the emotion in motion” and believes “if it’s not worth driving, it’s not worth building”. If you share that same joy of driving Brendon would be happy to show you all of what Mazda has to offer.

A little bit about me: I have many years of customer service experience which I bring to the automotive industry.

Sean mixes and produces electronic music, Colin plays trumpet in the H.M.C.S. Chippewa Navy band and I play keyboards, guitar, write music, and sing. I also enjoy listening to all the great talented musicians in Winnipeg and spending time at the beach every summer.

Hi, my name is Aron Heide. Cars have always been my passion. I have worked for Crown Mazda and the Dilawri Automotive Group for nearly 3 years. My life in the Automotive Industry started when I was in High School. I was enrolled in and graduated from the Automotive Program at my High School in Winkler. As soon as I graduated from High School I began to work as a technician in an automotive dealership while studying at Red River College where I became an Interprovincial Licensed Technician. I have worked hard as a technician for many years and I have continued to work even harder as a Service Manager.
My wife Barb and I have been happily married for nearly 30 years, together we have 3 daughters, Stacey, Christine, and Michelle. Somehow all five of us still manage to live happily under the same roof. Barb and the girls have been heavily involved in Girl Guides of Canada. While the girls have found other things to get involved in, Barb still manages to find time to stay in Girl Guides as well as volunteer with various charities. Before we had kids, my wife and I purchased a cottage. We continue to build and make improvements on the cottage so we can keep enjoying it for many years to come. In the earlier days, the girls would spend the entire summer up at the lake while I came to visit on weekends and holidays. I have always had a passion for Classic Cars and Trucks. I currently own two Classic Convertibles and one Truck. In my spare time I enjoy restoring these cars back to their original beauty.
Working in the Automotive Industry has helped me to grow in many ways. I am constantly meeting new people, making friends, and keeping up with the ever changing technology. I strive to be the best person that I can be. The Dilawri Group has encouraged me to keep growing, and to never be satisfied with average.
