From the Battle Creek Enquirer, January 28, 2016. Written by Dillon Davis:
Kent Love sits in a temporary office adjacent to the sales floor at Battle Creek’s Lakeview Ford Lincoln dealership on West Dickman Road. The Charlotte native doesn’t want to sell you a car though, and he’s certainly not interested in selling you the one you already have.
“When you walk out, I don’t want to have to say a word,” he said. “I don’t want to have to talk you into taking your car. I want to hand you the keys and hopefully you’re gonna say, ‘Wow, I can’t believe how good it looks.’ I’ve had that in the past and it’s a great feeling.”
An insurance claims adjuster turned body shop administrator, Love was hired in November to manage the dealership’s new auto body and paint operation. Love, 53, was chosen by the dealership’s owner, Vince Pavone, to oversee the construction and renovation of the space formerly leased by Skokie, Ill.-based Gerber Collision & Glass.
