Employee Spotlight- Ken Robinson

Ken Robinson, Service Manager, has been with Jim Butler Chevrolet's Service Team a little over 2 years now. Ken joined our team with plenty of automotive industry experience, specifically 23 years in the business. He also moved all over the U.S. for different automotive job opportunities. Finally, Ken decided to move the family back to the Midwest, where the people are just a little bit friendlier than out West. Originally from Michigan, the move back to the Midwest enabled him and his wife to be that much closer to the rest of their families. Although, Detroit isn't the closest drive for a holiday party, it is closer than California. 

Ken's family has lived all over, and the interesting thing is that they love vacationing in Branson, MO. It seems that most kids want to take trips to the beach or to the mountains, but The Robinson's all agree on going to Branson for the annual family vacation. Ken even plans on moving down to Branson after he retires. When Ken isn't working or enjoying the outdoors with his family, his time is spent either following the Detroit Red Wings, Duke Basketball or working out. 

Favorite Vehicles

The 2015 Chevy Colorado Coming to Jim Butler Chevrolet

The 2015 Chevy Colorado coming to Jim Butler Chevrolet in St. Louis in the future will have a more differentiation between GMC pickups. According to Mark Reuss, General Motors’ North America president, “the Chevy will be about value.”

Most likely the 2015 Chevy Colorado will have a 2.5-liter I-4 engine and will also offer a 3.6-liter V-6. The 2015 Chevrolet Colorado will be built right here in Missouri and hopefully make its first appearance at the Detroit auto show this January.

Jim Butler Chevrolet in St. Louis will keep you posted as to when the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado will arrive!
