Hello, my name is Steve Holt. I was born and raised in sunny Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I grew up in a very competitive sports environment with mainly football being my favorite. My other loves were basketball and baseball. I owe a lot of my personal growth, discipline, and drive to the competitive atmosphere I was constantly surrounded by. Through the years my coaches kept me grounded and in check. I instill those very same values and disciplines in the automotive industry. As a sales manager with Courtesy Kia, it is very easy because of the family values they have practiced since 1955 here in the “Valley of the Sun”. The team and family atmosphere we have at Courtesy makes our customers feel like family and they love coming into Courtesy for all their automotive needs.

Surrounded by competitive sports growing up and having a full-time coach of a Dad I was groomed to always do my best at anything I set my mind to. I have kept this mind set through life and my Career starting at Courtesy Chevrolet in 2014. I started working there as a temp to hire fulfilling orders and shipping out parts.

I looked up to these guys and wanted to be one of them. I have sat in almost every chair and every office setting in the parts department.

Hi guys, my name is Marissa Mansch. I’m originally from Las Vegas, NV, but I have been in Arizona a little over 5 years now. I have been with Kia for a year and a half and I absolutely love this business. Being in the automotive industry was definitely a blessing in disguise. I had an impulsive move and took the first job opportunity that came my way and now I wouldn’t want to be in any other industry! This business has helped me grow and expand my knowledge beyond just car sales. It has been a very rewarding experience. My main goal is to go into finance because I like to make it possible for my customers to leave the dealership completely satisfied with the car that they love and enjoy. I hope that you will join us down here and let us show you “The Courtesy Way”.
