  • Mitch Coutu
    Dealer Principal -Director

    Mitch has been in the automotive Industry for 30 years.

     

    He has purchased thousands of vehicles and has a keen eye for quality and value. Large dealerships and automotive groups call on Mitch to source vehicles due to his exceptional skill to purchase vehicles and ability to source rare makes and models.


     Mitch started off in wholesale only working exclusively with dealerships and supplying them with inventory. In 2007 Mitch decided to open his own retail operation, March Group premium vehicles, which began in a trailer on a half-acre lot on Laperrierre Ave in Ottawa. Mitch opened March Group with only himself and one lot attendant. Through quality vehicles, aggressive pricing and exceptional customer service Mitch as been able to grow the company to a 25+ employee operation and what it is today. In December of 2014 Mitch expanded and relocated March Group to Bell's Corners.

     

    Today, March Group operates from a 10,500 sq/ft building in Bells Corners (previously a Volkswagen franchise location) with nine service bays. In addition to March Group, Mitch added an OK Tire franchise to this location allowing him service his vehicles but more importantly service his clients' vehicles. Mitch has made a large investment within the service department purchasing only top quality equipment and hiring top tier trained and certified staff. Mitch was prepared to do this as he felt Ottawa's west end was lacking a quality service- especially for German Engineered vehicles, using the same methodology for the service business, quality service and aggressive pricing.

     

    Mitch has also opened a successful express collision body shop in Kanata which serves many local dealerships and clients in need of paint, dent, or damage repaired on their vehicles. Making www.marchgroup.ca  - truly a One-Stop-Shop, for all your automotive needs. As quickly as his companies have grown, this is only the beginning for the March Automotive Group. He has a clear vision for the future of March Automotive Group and he looks forward to offering clients more services and value in the near future, stay tuned! 

     

    Mitch's favorite car is a Porsche 918


    Mitch is a proud father to three girls and lives in rural Kanata with his wife Nicole.

  • Shane McInnes
    Manager
    613-596-8989

    My name is Shane McInnes and I am thrilled to have been in the automotive industry for well over 20 years.  My love of cars and really anything with an engine had me in the automotive trades at a young age. 

    In my late 20's my desire to work directly with and help people had me move into sales, marketing and management.  Although I started on the sales floor I quickly moved into the position of Financial Services Manager at a local BMW dealership.  I then moved to a Toyota/Lexus store where I enjoyed many years in a management role and gained a vast understanding of the import automotive business.    From here I had the pleasure of becoming a Sales Manager at a high volume Honda dealership.  I moved into the General Sales Manager role at that same dealership where we successfully developed their used car operation in order to compliment the new car business. Those were the years where I first started to realize my passion and knack for used vehicles.

    Shortly after that I was fortunate enough to be offered the GSM role at a busy Ford dealership.  This experience served to really help round out my experience and knowledge of the automotive industry.  I was able to help almost double the used car sales at that store while we exceeded Ford's new car sales expectations month after month. While I enjoyed working with the new vehicle manufacturers it was becoming obvious that my real niche was in the used car department.  So, after working under a number of automotive brands I feel that I have found my home here at March Group Premium Vehicles.  

    When you call into our store you will hear the true passion that I have for our business.  I look at my role in this business as an advisor more than anything.  My motto towards my peers, colleagues and especially our guests has always been "How can I help?"  The best part of my career is always the satisfying feeling of helping people get their perfect vehicle at the right price.  There is nothing I love more about the automotive industry than seeing the smile of a guest taking possession of the vehicle that is just right for them. 

    When I am not at the dealership you will find me travelling with my wife, Marie.  I also enjoy dirt biking, snowmobiling and generally any kind of power sports.

  • Pierre Coutu
    Finance Manager
    613-355-5657


    Pierre comes to us by way of Winnipeg Manitoba. Pierre successfully ran his own restaurant for 20 years and was looking for a new adventure. He has always been passionate about cars. He is a true "car guy" and loves getting his hands dirty and fixing them. He once did a full restoration on a 1971 Land Rover Series IIA SWB and his last project was turning a Pathfinder into an off road beast complete with snorkel, military specification tires, bush bar and full skid plates. He likes the older Land Rovers and Pathfinders, he thinks they make him look rugged. We're sure he'll keep those hands dirty if he owns one. 

     

    Pierre's Favourite Vehicle: Land Rover
