  • Brian August
    2nd Generation Dealer Principal

    My father Archie August started Kelowna Motors in 1945. He always strived for the best in customer service and always treated the customer as a part of our family. To this day I believe in the same way of doing business.  Without our loyal customers and our superb customer service we would not be here today. My name is Brian August. I started out cleaning and washing cars, then moved into sales while going to college. I  slowly moved my way up to working hand in hand with my father, learning how to treat our customers the way we like to be treated ourselves. I would like to personally invite you to visit us at Kelowna Motors for Mazda and experience the kind of service our family takes pride in providing.
