Name: Paul Burgess

Job Title: Parts Manager

Employed with Vernell’s Interstate Service: 23 years

Family: Wife Cathy, children Andrew and Angela, grandchildren Greyson and Colson

Favorite pastime: Spending time with my grandkids, riding my motorcycle, camping

Biggest changes during your career: When I first started at Vernell’s, it was a much smaller operation. We just had three bays, a small parts department. It was a pretty big change when we expanded the building, adding bays, offices and doubling the size of the parts department. We also expanded our inventory, carrying more styles and options.

Most rewarding part of the job: I help get somebody home every day.

“When it comes to parts, Paul is better than Google. He always knows what you need and where to find it.”
