For the last six years Curt served as the General Manager of Team Bozeman Motorsports, which sells Polaris, Yamaha and Kawasaki products. Team Bozeman Motorsports is the largest Big Box facility in Southwest Montana.

They secured legislation that prevents manufacturers from requiring dealers to take inventory in order to earn incentives or assistance.

Curt began his career at the 2nd oldest Ford dealership in America, which was located in Seattle, Washington. Over his 19-year tenure there, he occupied every operational management seat in the dealership. Starting as a salesperson, he was the top producer for two years before becoming a service advisor. Next came service and parts management. He then developed and operated the dealerships first F&I department. Curt also served as Rental and Leasing Manager, Sales Manager, and General Sales Manager.

After completing his accounting studies, he served as the dealerships comptroller, before becoming Vice President  & General Manager. Curt also owned an independent Auto Leasing Company and an Advertising Agency.

He first finds the dollars, and then the dimes!

When asked about his new position with Channel Ideas and T.E.A.M. Business Groups, Curt said,

“The T.E.A.M. Business concept is the right product for the right time. Having been through all the previous economic downturns of the 70’s, 80’s and 90,s, I can state that this is a completely different circumstance. The oversight and input from the peers and experts participating in the T.E.A.M. process, without the expense and cost of travel, are critical to every dealer today!! The Three for Free Guarantee is any dealer’s best assurance of cost management within his business. I am very excited to be a part of what I believe is the future of oversight support for motorsports dealers everywhere.”
