Team Member Monday is once again upon us and today we talk with Shawn Palmer, Sales Manager for Buckeye Honda.
Shawn Palmer: “The new Team Member Monday is here! The new Team Member Monday is here!”
Jeremy Shy: “Boy, I wish I could get that excited about nothing.”
Shawn Palmer: “Nothing? Are you kidding? Team Member Monday – Palmer, Shawn.! I’m somebody now! Millions of people look at this blog everyday! This is the kind of spontaneous publicity – your name in print – that makes people. I’m in print! Things are going to start happening to me now.”
For those of you that don’t recognize those lines they are from the 1979 Movie, The Jerk starring Steve Martin. If you hang around the sales department at Buckeye Honda long enough you might just hear a line from that movie or a number of other movies and it never gets old.
Shawn Palmer has been a resident of Lancaster Ohio all of his life and he would not have it any other way. In the automotive business for over 28 years, Shawn has called Buckeye Honda home for over 6 years. “Buckeye is a great organization and a wonderful group to work for, the facility and the work environment is top-notch. One of the best things about working for Buckeye Honda is the way they take care of the customer before, during and after the sale. It is really nice to know that when someone buys a car from us that it has been completely brought up to the highest standards and that is something to feel good about.”
Shawn says that the greatest moments in his life are when he married his wife Ann and the birth of his two children Leah and Joe. Joe is a graduate of The Ohio State University and Leah is attending High School at Fisher Catholic. When Shawn is not at work you can find him at one of Leah’s many Athletic Events from Track and Field to Soccer or Basketball.
Shawn is a die-hard fan of the Cleveland Indians and Cleveland Browns even though they have been known to break his heart from time to time… See Game 7 of the 1997 World Series, “The Catch”, “The Fumble” the list goes on and on and we do not want to put him through all of it again… 🙂 he is still a fan! To Read more go here… Even with all of this turmoil Shawn is the go-to guy when you have a sports trivia question or need to know who played a certain position for a particular team during whatever year… Shawn probably knows or has a really good idea.
When it comes to music and movies Shawn likes the classics. When recently asked to name his favorite song Shawn pondered for a moment and then answered – “Side One of Led Zeppelin IV” … “that’s not a song… Side One of Led Zeppelin IV!” For movies “The Jerk, Apocalypse Now and Boondock Saints” are all on the list.
The next time you are in the dealership or if you see Shawn out and about at a local community event, stop by and say hello. He would love to see and hear from you.
