Michael A Pinnell - GM

I've been selling at Central Autos since June 2005.  I enjoy building relationships and creating life long customers.  I've had hundreds of repeat customers and sold some families as many as 8 cars over the years.  I am experienced in auto finance and in all aspects of the automotive sales transaction.  I am vested in Central Autos not only personally but financially as well.  We look to grow our business through moral and ethical business dealings.  We hope you'll give us a look when it is time for a new vehicle!


I came to Colorado in the late 80's.  I attended and graduated from CSU in 1993 with a BS In Applied Human Sciences.  I learned to do all sorts of fun things in my time in Fort Collins.  I discovered: Fly Fishing, Hunting, Motorcycles, Backpacking, SCUBA, off-roading (both dirt bike and vehicle) and that life is to short to not drink good Colorado Beer!  Colorado was a place of my dreams, and still is!  Life is more structured with work and family but I love the great outdoors and if Im not at the office chances are we are out playing in this beautiful land we  call home.  I have been married to my beautiful wife for 15 years and we have a 12 year old daughter who loves gymnastics and her horse.  I am blessed with 3 great step-kids who are all out in the real world!

In my professional life I've worked as a Camp counselor, school bus driver, athletic trainer for a high school and as a special needs para for Loveland School District.  I ran my own paint company for 10 years, spent a few summers as a fishing guide in the mountains.  I've sold real estate and Mortgages.  I always come back to selling cars.  I'm a car guy, reliable and affordable transportation is vital to living life to the fullest in the vast western US.

Hope we can do business!  Mike.
