    Matt joined Desoto Ford-Mercury in 1988 as Sales Manager.  In 1993, he, Mark Schlundt and Charlie Christopherson purchased the Dealership from Mr. Wade Hartley, its previous owner.  They obtained the local Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep franchise in 1997, and combined all brands into the New Desoto Dodge Chrysler Ford and Jeep.  The Ownership Group feels fortunate to have met many new friends through their Dealership, and enjoys the everyday workings that are provided at one of Arcadia's most successful and well known businesses.
