    I have been in the Automotive Sales industry for the last 16 years.

    My family has owned the Volvo franchise in Omaha since 1984.  Volvo is a brand that we have trusted for over 3 decades! 
    During my time working here, I have had the privilege of working in our parts, service, and sales department. 
    As the Sales Manager, I'm responsible for making sure that your ownership experience is what you expect of a family-owned dealership.

  • Joel Palmquist
    Finance Manager
    402.359.1500 ext.204

    I grew up in a small town called Wymore, Nebraska which is located two hours south of Omaha.  In 2005, I graduated from Nebraska Christian College, and in 2012, I received my Master's in School Counseling. In my free time I enjoy playing golf and spending time with my family.  I also enjoy rooting on the Huskers and Hawkeyes, needless to say the day after Thanksgiving is like watching my parents fight.  Although I am not currently using my Master's in a school setting, counseling others make wise decisions in the car ownership experience is very important to me.  My job here at Gorges Volvo Cars is to not only make sure you have a great experience the day you visit us, but for your entire ownership with your new car.  Our Mission statement is to offer the highest level of quality products and service to establish life-long customers.  I truly enjoy having our customers leave my office knowing they will be protected and having the peace of mind that we have their best interest in mind. 

  • Jeff Spencer

    I am grateful to call Omaha my home for over 30 years. My first job was a lot porter back when we were Mike Gorges on 65th and L when I was 14. Although I have enjoyed many other experiences I now have had the privilege of being a part of Gorges Volvo for the last 10 years. I am responsible for the parts and service departments. My goal for my staff and I is to provide you with a truly exceptional service experience. We are a family here at Gorges Volvo, and we want you to feel a part of it.
