Paul Lutz is a Sales Consultant at Fremont Motor Toyota in Sheridan, Wyoming. Paul is new to the sales team but has worked with the company for a while. We interviewed him to find out a little more.
Where were you born and raised?
“Well, my father was in the Air Force when I was younger so I moved around quite a bit. I was born in Kilmarnock Virginia. We lived there for a couple of years until we moved again. Then lived in Delaware, followed by California, then Lander Wyoming. Finally, landing in Shoshoni, Wyoming where we stayed for 10 years. So whenever anyone asks where I am from I just tell them Shoshoni Wyoming because that is where I have lived the longest.” says Paul Lutz.
What brought you to Sheridan, WY?
“I moved up here to be closer to my fiance for one and secondly I came up here to go to college. I am currently going to school to become an elementary school teacher.”
How long have you worked in the Auto Industry?
Paul explains, “I started out as a car detailer and photographer with Fremont Motors about a year and a half ago. Whilst taking pictures of the vehicles to show off all of the features, pretty soon I knew almost as much about the cars as the salespeople. I was then asked to move up to sales.”
What is your favorite part of the job?
“Besides getting to check out all of the sweet new rides that Toyota gets in. I love the look on the customers face when they drive off in their new vehicle.”
“Convincing this gorgeous woman to go down the aisle with me. That took a lot of work.”
Growing up as a child, what did you want your career to be?
“I wanted to be an aeronautical engineer since I was seven. Thinking it was the coolest thing to get to design airplanes, spaceships, and helicopters. Then I realized that I really didn’t want to do mathematics for my entire life when I was in high school. I found my true passion, which is shaping the minds of our future generations.”
When you aren’t working, what are you doing?
“When I’m not working, I like to do a lot of things. I love movies! My movie collection at my home literally fills the wall. I like to go hiking with family and camping is always a great time.”
What kind of music do you like?
“Well, it doesn’t really match me my personality but I really like to listen to late 90’s early 2000’s pop-rock. My favorite group is Panic! At The Disco.”
How about your favorite kind of food?
“Mac & cheese is my favorite. I could eat it all day everyday.”
Favorite movie line?
“For a moment there I thought we were in trouble” from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.
What was your first car?
“My first car is actually my current car. It is a 2009 Ford Escape. This car and I have been through a lot. I’m pretty sure that it is cursed but I love it. I say it’s cursed because I have had to replace the rear bumper 4 different times. Probably the auto body shop’s no.1 customer.”
If money was no object, what vehicle would you own?
“A 2020 Toyota Supra launch edition.”
