“We’re delighted to add Morgan to our growing service team,” said Burritt. “This newly created position is going to pamper our customers by giving them and their vehicles the utmost personal attention right from the moment they drive into our service department.”
Backus will be in charge of greeting customers, inspecting their vehicles and giving them an overall “wow” experience by being extremely attentive and helpful, Burritt said.
Backus, from Mexico, has two years experience in the automotive industry. She previously worked as a delivery specialist, certified tech expert and car and leasing salesperson.
Burritt Motors’ history dates back to 1955 in Hannibal when Chris’ grandfather, Elmer O. Burritt, purchased a Chevrolet franchise that he operated until 1963.
To expand in a larger market, Chris’ father, Richard, purchased the assets of a Chevrolet dealership that had been located on Oswego’s East Third Street. About a year later, he built the present dealership on Route 104, which underwent a $2.5 million expansion and renovation last year.
The dealership celebrates its 58th anniversary this year and can be reached at 343-8948, www.burrittmotors.com or www.themechanixgarage.com.
