  • Bob Jonah
    General Manager

    I was a bit of a traveler before making roots in Maine. I grew up just north of Boston where I started working at 12 years old taking care of local gardens. At 18, I started in the workforce at Ames Department store in North Conway, New Hampshire. Since then I have worked many different jobs and lived in 24 different areas before settling in Maine. My roots settled at Darling's in 1994 when I began as a Sales Representative.  From 1994 to 2002, I worked in both the Honda, Ford and Augusta locations as Sales Representative and Sales Manager. In 2002 I was promoted to General Manager were I am today.

    In 1979, I married my wonderful wife Trudy. We have two grown up kids, fostered many teenage girls for 7 years, and currently have four awesome grandchildren. Amidst it all, I have given back to my community as a Mason, Shriner and volunteer for Junior Achievement. Outside the office, I enjoy spending time with my family, woodworking and tending to my 19 flower gardens in the yard. Trudy and I like to get away to the ocean adventuring between York beach and Ogunquit as much as possible.

    One of the best things about Darling's is how much they care. The company has a great vision for the future, driven by community caring. At Darling's we always do the right thing by making our customers a part of the family from the start. My time here as taught me many things, one of which is genuinely caring for the customer. Feel free to reach out anytime, you are always welcome at the Darling's family. 

  • Andy King
    Sales Manager

    My story began growing up in Old Town Maine until high school when my family moved to the big city of Hermon, Maine.  After graduating as a proud Hermon Hawk, I studied at EMCC and NMCC for my degree in Business Management. I got my first job at MBNA. I loved the culture at MBNA and its focus on community give back. I was trained in the banking and credit world and loved it. Here I grew and traveled all over the state in various positions from Manager to Senior Officer in 2009. Unfortunately, the economy at the time couldn't sustain the business and MBNA is no longer.  After 12 years of service, I left knowing what made a great company culture. I moved to Etna with the goal to search for a great community based company within one hour of home. In 2010, I found Darling's and began my new career as a salesman at the Value Center.  Four years later, I moved back to the numbers side of the industry as a Finance and Insurance Manager in Ellsworth. I became Sales Manager at Chevrolet in 2018 and then came closer to home as Sales Manager at the Value Center in 2019.

    My world is filled with community and family. I have three incredible older siblings, three nephews two nieces and my mom and dad. One of my sisters and my brother followed in my father's footsteps serving our nation. While my father was an Army man for 20 years, my siblings joined the United States Air Force.  When I'm not with family I spend time giving back to my community, spending time with my dog, Oddie, golfing, BBQ's, camping with friends and riding my Honda VTX 1800 motorcycle. I'm a proud contributor and supporter of the United Way and regularly donate blood to the American Red Cross. When I need some downtime I'll ride down to High Tide in Bangor and enjoy the view of the river and sounds of the Darling's Waterfront Concerts.

    My training in banking, lending and credit is what I want to give back to my customers. I am a super hero of sorts during the sales process and know how to work with banks and read ever confusing credit reports. Anything involving financing a large purchase can be scary and I pride myself on making sure the customer feels comfortable, gets the best terms for purchase and has an exceptional experience. I like to think Darling's is a bit like the show "Cheers" where everyone knows your name. Whether customer or employee everyone appreciates you and knows your name. I want to earn your business and know your name, if you have any scary numbers questions feel free to reach out; I'm here for you anytime.

  • Amy Nye
    Finance Manager

    I began with Darling's as a finance manager in 2004.  I love the company and they have become my second family! My tenure here has created long lasting relationships with our lenders based on trust and experience.  My job as a Finance Manager is to help each customer get the best possible outcome when applying for a vehicle loan.

    No one should feel ever uncomfortable or undeserving to come in and see us. Finding the right fit for the customer AND the banks can sometimes be time-consuming, but that's what we're here for.
    It's worth it in the end!

  • Dave Robinson
    Sales Representative

    I am a born and raised Mainer from Dexter, Maine. After graduation, I attended the University of Maine Presque Isle. My first job was for Dexter Shoe Company as a Foreman. I began in the car business after marrying a Hartley. I worked in Sales, Finance and as a Sales Manager here for 8 years until trying a different dealership. I worked at both Varney and Quirk until I needed a break from the business. I joined the Mortgage business for a while, but knew it was not right for me. I found a home at a local Ford dealership until I found my passion for used vehicles through a great friend. A dear friend of mine ran our own used car lot until 2017 when it was time for Darling's. I found my home at Darling's Used Vehicle Center as a Sales Representative in 2017.

    My home is St. Albans now where I live with my wonderful life Florence. Between the two of us, we have six children. I am father of three children and four stepchildren. Our family also includes two dogs named Teddy and Roxy, a cat named Tommy and lots of awesome grandchildren. These days my time is spent with friends and family upta our camp at Ripely Pond where we most enjoy BBQ's and adventures. In the past, I was an active Kiwanis volunteer and a member of the Dexter School board.

    I love working for Darling's. My past has seen many dealerships and Darling's exceeded my expectations in how they treat people. Not only does Darling's make sure every customer has a great experience, but they also care for their employees. I've been treated with respect and support which makes it easy to treat my customers with the same respect and kindness. Please feel free to reach out to me anytime.

  • Dustin Smelley
    Sales Representative

    I am sort of a Mainer raised in the big city of Ellsworth, Maine. I was born in Dunedin Florida and moved to Ellsworth, Maine at the age of two. I started in the workforce trying to figure out what I wanted to do. My job experiences varied from security, working at Hannaford, a technician and more until 2017 when I found my calling. I was encouraged by Darling's to try out sales and I am glad that I did. In 2017, I started as a Sales Representative for Darling's Used Vehicle Center.

    My home is Old Town now where I try to live my best life spending time with friends and family as much as possible. I am a big fan of team Darling's and can usually be found volunteering for some of the Darling's sponsored sports teams, such as basketball, softball and kickball. When I do need some Dustin time, I love to hunt and fish all around the country. In fact, my office has a great conversation starter with a 30lb king salmon hanging on the wall caught at Lake Ontario in New York.

    Yes, my name is Smelley pronounced smelly, but do not worry the name is no reflection on who I am. A great company trained me and I am proud to be a genuine not smelly Sales Representative because of it. Used vehicles are the best to sell because often times you are finding someone's dream vehicle or their first. Having the brand new best vehicle is not always what people want, but when you can find a vehicle that sparks love, then I am happy. Feel free to reach out anytime.

  • Joe Doucette
    Sales Representative

    I am a Mainer born and raised in Old Town. My work experience varied until I found my passion at Darling's in 2017. My work before Darling's included landscaping, mechanic work, paving and even a Manager at Dunkin Donuts.

    My home is Levant now where I live with my 2-year-old Pitbull named Razor after my Polaris 4X4. When I am not at the dealership I love hanging with friends and family as much as possible. We can usually be found at summer cookouts or riding 4X4's around the state. I also love to camp and adventure once a year to a new camping spot for a week of friends and relaxation.

    I always grew up with Chevy's and still have a love for the Chevy brand; I trust the brand because they stuck with me growing up. While I sell more than Chevrolets, I still understand that feeling of trust. It is not easy to buy a used vehicle; it requires trust in the vehicle and trust in the company. At Darling's I am proud to trust the brand because the company has supported me and proved to be kind and fair. It is this kindness, trust and fair treatment that I want to give back to my customers. Feel free to reach out to me anytime.

  • Mark St. Germain
    Sales Representative

    I am a proud Bangor Maine native, born and raised. After school, I started in the workforce in the restaurant industry. I stayed in the restaurant business for 28 years. Closer to the end of those years I attended New England School of Broadcasting, known today as New England School of Communications at Husson University, studying Broadcast Communications.  I put my degree to good use and continued working in the restaurant business alongside working at KISS 94.5 and WZON radio stations. I needed a change after what seemed like a lifetime of many jobs. When buying my last vehicle at Darling's an employee sold me not only a vehicle but also an idea of my next chapter. A week or so later I left my job and began at Darling's on May 4th 2018 as a Sales Representative.

    The Big city of Bangor is still where I call home with my awesome companion Murphy. My dog, Murphy is what gets me out of bed every day. Murphy is my biggest love. Our favorite family activities include rocking out to 80's metal bands on road trips to our favorite hiking destinations. Murphy's favorite hiking spots include Chick Hill and areas in Monson. When I do need some me time I love to golf in Bangor and my favorite spot at the Samoset Resort in Rockland. Murphy usually takes time to nap dreaming of walks and dog treats while I am out golfing.

    I am proud to work for Darling's Used Vehicle Center. The Darling's always saw me as a person when I needed a vehicle before working here. My credit was not great and they took a chance on me when no one else would for a vehicle purchase. That itself is a testament to why I work at Darling's. I was treated with respect every time I needed a vehicle, and it is this fair treatment that I strive to give back to my customers. Feel free to reach out anytime, because everyone deserves a vehicle no matter what your past may look like, it is the future that matters.
