      Greg Jones
      General Manager

      I grew up in Ashland and graduated from Ashland High School in 1994, after graduation I moved on to college where I was lucky enough to play golf on a scholarship and enjoyed my college years. I was lucky enough to be hired by Lithia Motors in 1999 where I started as an Auditor and worked my way up through different positions with our Support Services Department until I moved to Colorado in 2004 to work with the Regional Vice President of our Denver Region. I spent 7 wonderful years in Colorado in several different positions the last being the Sales Manager for Lithia Volkswagen of Thornton, in Thornton Colorado. During my time in Colorado I met and married my true angel Jennifer. We were married among the Red Rocks in the hills around Denver and it will remain the greatest day of my life. In the summer of 2011 I was given the opportunity to move back home and be the General Manager of Lithia Volkswagen of Medford. Being back home has been a wonderful change for me as my wife and I welcomed our first child in December of 2011, little Abigail Grace Jones. Its amazing being back home where I grew up and giving my daughter the opportunity to be around Grand Parents, Aunt and Uncle and her crazy little cousins! I am excited to be part of the Lithia Volkswagen team here in Medford and am very lucky to have been surrounded by amazing team members that care so much about our customers as well as the store itself. We strive to achieve the same goal of total customer satisfaction and that's what makes this team so strong. I look forward to all the exciting changes and growth our store has and am lucky to be part of such an amazing company.

      Andy Werner
      Sales Representative

      My name is Andy Werner and I have lived in the Rogue Valley for seven years. I grew up in Reno, Nevada and moved here in 2005 to be closer to family. I love living in the valley, being close to the ocean and having easy access to Portland, Seattle, and San Francisco. You will see me out on I-5 often because I love to travel! I also have family in Japan, so you will find me there too. I have the travel bug and love to try new places. Europe is high on my list of places to explore, especially Germany. My dad's family came to America from Germany in the 1940s and I would love to see where my roots came from. In my down time I enjoy reading, flying airplanes and watching movies. I am an avid aviation fan and can talk about airplanes all day. Volkswagen has an awesome product line up and I am proud to represent their vehicles. My favorite VW is the Jetta GLI, which is the hot rod version of the Jetta. The 2.0 Turbo engine is, in my opinion, the greatest engine VW has ever produced. It delivers great power and economy for the money. I also have a soft spot for the Beetle, as my wife drives her beloved 2009 Gecko Green Bug, "Greeny." I look forward to meeting and discussing with you more about your automotive needs!

      Mark Gosson
      Parts Manager

      I got into VW?s in 1977 when I bought my first, a 1965 VW Bug for $400. It was sitting in a field covered in weeds and cobwebs and it ?needed me?. That was my first ?Bug Bite? and I?ve been infected with VW venom in my veins ever since! In the late ?70?s I was co-founder of the Southern Oregon VW Club and am still a member. In the 1980?s and 90?s I started and ran the Oregon Bug-In (an all VW car show, drag race & swap meet) and the Northwest Volkswagen Invitational car show (the top 25 VW show cars on the west coast were invited to participate in a weekend of activities). I also produced and helped others with many other car shows for all types of vehicles. My wife, daughter, son and other family members were always there to help. Working at these shows brought our family closer together, and family continues to be the most important thing to me. After running my own foreign auto parts business for years, in 1996 I came to Lithia VW as the ?VW Expert? in the parts department. Then after being a service writer for a year, I was asked to be the VW Parts Manager (my dream job). After 5 years of managing the VW parts department, Lithia asked me to help all the Lithia stores by working in our corporate offices. I enjoyed helping others further their knowledge and careers in the automotive industry. But now, I have ?come home,? where I belong?.. Besides continuing to be heavily involved with VW?s and custom cars, I enjoying being physically active (recently losing 185 lbs, running a marathon, bungee jumping, mountain climbing and many other things), helping others achieve their dreams, spending time with my family & grandchildren, and collecting toy VW Bugs (+1,000 at this time!) and VW memorabilia (especially Herbie the Love Bug). Stop by and welcome me home?..

      Sherri  Rambo
      Parts Advisor

      After listening to several long term Lithia employees sing the praises of their working environment, in August 2013 I joined Lithia Volkswagen in the Parts department. I have been in the parts business, the retail side, since 1992, and I am having the best time ever here. I was born in and raised in Phoenix Arizona but as a teen moved and graduated high school in Gold Beach Oregon, which was quite a change of scenery for a desert girl. I have been married for 14 years to my best friend who gave me the greatest last name, Rambo. We enjoy going to Jackson County Drag Strip, hiking Southern Oregon, hunting for antiques and spending as much time as we can with our 8 grand children and 1 great grandchild.

      Finance Manager

      I have lived, worked, and played in the Rogue Valley since 1984. I come from a varied background, including a lot of machinery, which is why I am here, playing with cars, even though I have a Master’s Degree in Education. I have been with Lithia for a year and it is a great place to work. Wow, time really does fly when you love your job! On a personal level, my children keep me busy with school, music and traveling. They are very active and involved in many different activities through the school and community clubs also. I perform community service work through the legal system where I work with people from five different counties. In the remainder of my free time, I work with the Developmentally Disabled through Southern Oregon Aspire, in Jackson and Josephine Counties, to help them find community employment. I enjoy meeting new people and helping them to find the right products for their needs. Come by and see me. I like having visitors and catching up with friends, old and new.
