    When he's not working his hardest to make a difference, you can find Evan getting some exercise, catching a Bronx Bombers game, or playing some hockey.

  • Jason Powenski
    General Manager

    Jason is the resident figurehead and is in charge of making your time here the best it can be.   His goal is to exceed your expectations at every encounter so please let him know how your experience was and if you had a great time.  We take your business very seriously and want you to come back and send your family and friends.  As a die hard motorhead he can usually be found in his Father's shop wrenching on vintage Mopars, motorcycles, tractors, boats or anything of the sort when he is not here making operations run smoothly.

  • Matt Altman
    Sales Manager

    Matt is a Superstar!  If you have been around you probably know him.  If you don't know him, you need to.  He knows more about Cummins, HEMI's, GVW's, tow ratings, and specs than most people will ever think about.  If you have questions about your new ride or what you might need, he is most definitely your guy!  He knows Cummins and looks forward to helping you.  You will need several cups of coffee to keep up with him. 

    When Matt is not in the showroom at Emerling Dodge helping folks find the truck of their dreams, you might find him working on his Cummins RAM pulling truck, restoring his family's classic 1963 Dart, or hitting the links!
