    General Sales Manager

    General Sales Manager

    My name is Mike Weiland, I have been with Archie Cochrane Ford for over 15 years. I came from a background in public school education. I received my degree in education from Northern Montana College in Havre, Montana. I graduated and moved to Billings back in 1993. I had the privilege of teaching Math and Science in Shepherd, Montana  for seven years. During that time, I also sold vehicles on different evenings and on the weekends for a local automobile dealership. After those seven years, I decided to focus 100% on the automotive side.

    During my time at Archie Cochrane Ford I started on the sales floor for a few years and was asked to develop the internet side of the dealership. Working on the computer side of Archie Cochrane Ford gave me the opportunity to network the dealership and start several different websites. At this time, I truly discovered what was to come in the automotive business.

    Being the Internet Manager for years gave me the opportunity to think about what customers really wanted. From my experience, it was simple: Customers want to be treated right, know that they receive a fair price, and they simply want all the information in front of them to make an confident decision in buying from a dealer. I believe that Archie Cochrane Ford has done a pretty good job of doing just that. Just a few years back, you couldn't even fill out a credit application online to get the ball rolling. Now, you can work your car deal without even having to see the dealer. With our dealership, you can also select a salesman by reading through their bio pages. Customizing your sales process to the way you want to be treated is exactly what I want to provide you (our customer) with. With all the information provided by our dealership, customers know that they are receiving a super deal and our staff is trained to provide anything else that our customers may have questions about.

    I am very proud to have been able to lay down the groundwork for this experience. There are now others that are able to provide this experience for all our customers in our Internet Department. 

    My job has now shifted to working with all of our salesmen. I am now the GSM at Archie Cochrane Ford.  I am in charge of helping train our sales crew into giving you the experience that I so much value myself (customer service). I personally love getting the opportunity to talk to each and every customer that walks through our front doors. I also try very hard to make sure that I get a chance to shake your hand and thank you for your business.

  • Kent Mende
    Sales Consultant

    I worked at Archie Cochrane Ford from October 1995 - May 2010 and rejoined the company in September of 2015.

    I have almost 20 years of sales experience in automotive, marine, and power-sports.  I am also a Marine Corps veteran.

    The thing I like most about my job is the wide variety of people I get to talk with daily.  Every day there is something new, and it's not monotonous or tedious.

  • Jenifer McRae
    Sales Consultant

    I was born and raised in Montana and this is truly where my heart is.  I grew up in Miles City and have been in Billings almost 20 years.  I love camping, fishing, music, and time with friends and family!  I am always up for an adventure and love to see where the road will take me. 

    I am very passionate about helping my clients find the right vehicle and thoroughly enjoy guiding them through this process from start to finish.  Getting to know my clients and their families is the best part of my work day!  Then watching them leave the dealership feeling happy and confident in their decision is the cherry on top.
