Shane Thon
General Manager

I spent my teenage years here in Quesnel graduating from QSS in 1985 and enjoyed playing hockey on the Midget Mack Hockey team and making life long friends. I moved away from our family hobby farm in Marguerite to attend UBC and returned to Williams Lake where I started my journey in the auto industry taking my first job as a service advisor at Norberg Motors in 1989. I worked my way up to sales consultant, then commercial truck manager, to assistant sales manager and finally General Sales Manager. During the year 1999 I was offered an opportunity to move back to Quesnel and become a partner in the ownership of then JB Motorcade which was changed to Fraser River GM. It has been a wonderful 22 years managing the store, being involved in many community events and volunteering during that time. Quesnel is a special place that I am very proud of. My wife Nicole and I have cherished the quality of life that it offers to raise our 5 children who whenever they have a chance come to take in all that we enjoy. I have to sincerely thank our current and past staff members who have assisted in creating a wonderful atmosphere and a reputation of good customer service. It most likely goes without saying in the retail sector that nothing is more important than your customers and for me and our family the loyalty and relationships we shared over the years has made Fraser River GM a special place to come to work at everyday.

I moved to Quesnel from Kelowna in 1995 not having a clue where on the map I was going, but following along with life. I was excited to see what this little city had to offer, and what was supposed to be a 3 year plan has turned out to be my hometown. I love the community and have loved raising my kids here. I've worked in the automotive industry for over 10 years, and am now excited to be a part of this Fraser River family and plant my roots in this new adventure as controller!I moved to Quesnel from Kelowna in 1995 not having a clue where on the map I was going, but following along with life.

Born in Quesnel, I grew up in a family of four brothers and two sisters. I have a lovely wife, 5 children, and 6 grandchildren. I enjoy hockey, camping, boating, quading, and snowmobiling. I moved to Houston in 1989 to work for Sullivan Motor Products and after 2 years as an apprentice I made the move to the parts department. In 1991 I moved back to Quesnel and started at Johnson Brothers Motors. Fraser River Chevrolet bought the dealership in 1999 and I stayed on as the parts manager.

"I’ve only been here over two calendar years but I can honestly say moving from my last workplace to here has been amazing. My commute has dropped down from an hour to 3 mins giving me more time to spend doing the things I love. The best part; I genuinely enjoy the environment here, from the clients I come in contact with from our beautiful community to the newfound family that makes up the people in this store.""I’ve only been here over two calendar years but I can honestly say moving from my last workplace to here has been amazing.

I have worked at our family owned dealership since the age of 14. I always enjoy our staff and the fun we have at the store. After finishing 4 years of junior hockey playing in Kamloops for the Storm I came back to Quesnel and have been working in the detail department and valet. An opportunity became available in the sales department, I applied and now happy to assist any and all customers that I have met over the years and shuttling in the service department.

I moved here from Northern Alberta and as much as I respected the work, I have found my new home here in Quesnel, so beautiful in comparison. Not being from here, I was concerned about how I would fit in at Fraser River but I can say I have been surrounded and encouraged by an accepting group of people that have become not only co-workers but cherished friends.
