Employee Spotlight: Chris Haught

Here we are again, sitting down with one of our team members to learn more about them. We love learning about our team! This month we are talking to Chris Haught, a Courtesy Driver at our Buick location. Chris has been with the company for over a year now. We sat down and gave Colten our usual “spotlight” questions and here is what we learned…

VanDevere: Hi Chris, thank you for taking the time to sit with us. We will start off easy… What is the best thing about your job?

Chris: The People!

VDV: I agree. The customer’s are all amazing and the staff always make it a fun day to come to work. What is the best thing about VanDevere?

Chris: The family atmosphere and the superiors all want to get to know me and listen to me.

VDV: I agree, this bunch is awesome! We are just one big happy family here. What are 3 words you would use to describe VanDevere?

Chris: That is tough, so I will sum it up in a few words. Great place to work. Always look forward to it

VDV: It is tough to narrow it down and I think you had a great short phrase to capture it. What do you like to do when you are not at work?

Chris: I recently found out that I had a tumor, heart murmur and diabetes all in one doctor’s visit. I make sure to make the most of my life and take care of myself and others. God has a purpose for everyone and I am still here because he has a plan for me. After surgery and getting back to work, I continue to play in a classic rock band. I play lead guitar!

VDV: We are so happy and thankful to have you a part of the VanDevere Bunch! Love to hear that you love giving back and empowering others with your faith, which reminds me… if you could pick one superpower, what would it be?

Chris: Healing! The first thing I would do is start healing children and get rid of cancer if possible!

VDV: How inspiring! What is your inspiration?

Chris: I hope to fulfill God’s purpose for me and consistently give back to the community. My band travels to local bars and venues to raise money for kids. Another reason I love VanDevere, since they have a lot of focus on giving back.

VDV: Amazing! What a great way to look at life. God does work in mysterious ways and the Bunch is glad you are a part of the team to help give back to the youth in our community as well. Giving back is so important! If you were to travel outside of Ohio, where would your favorite travel spot be?

Chris: Nashville, Tennessee

VDV: Also one of my favorite places to visit! You should see if your band could play somewhere around there. I am sure that would be so fun for you and the bank members. Now, do you have a favorite place to eat?

Chris: Italian food is the best food!

VDV: You cannot go wrong with Italian! Last question, since we are in the car business, what is your dream car?

Chris: 67’ Pontiac GTO

VDV: Definitely an amazing car! A big thank you to you, Chris, for taking the time to talk with us today. We appreciate your hard work for the past year of employment with The Vandevere Bunch! We pray that your keep getting healthier as time goes on. We also appreciate all you do for the community and hope to hear from your band soon!
