    Prior to joining the Shaker Auto Group team, my career was as a United States Marine. After my honorable discharge from the Marine Corps, I was unsure what career I wanted to pursue. I knew I wanted to work for a company whose ideals consisted of integrity, strong leadership and opportunity to advance. I found my professional home with the Shaker Auto Group family.

    I was instantly drawn to the company's strong moral compass, discipline and familial atmosphere. 

    When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my family, friends and my dog Sasha.

    I have been loyal to the Mazda brand since 2001. During this time I have owned, driven, and sold a few thousand Mazda's. My knowledge and experience with Mazda's product, philosophy and history has been the reason for my loyalty and continued enthusiasm. "Elite Master Sales Professional" is my official Mazda title.
    I joined the Shaker Family Auto Group in 2008. Our partnership with Mazda is focused on the customer experience and their driving needs. When a customer understands you put their needs first you promote loyalty, repeat customers and a successful business model. Allow us to introduce you to the Mazda product/philosophy and show you how we put your needs first.

  • Gjergji ("George") Ciko
    Product Specialist

    Nearly twenty years ago, my family and I moved to the United States from Albania. A common question I am asked is "why did your family move?". The decision to move to the United States was influenced by education, opportunity and the pursuit of the American dream. From an early age, I was taught the importance of working for a company whose ideals emphasized the value of both employee and customer satisfaction. The decision to join the Shaker Auto Group team was a natural fit.

    I am currently enrolled in business marketing and management courses. When I am not working or in school, I enjoy playing soccer, watching sports, working on cars and being a disc jockey.

  • Andrew Dion
    Product Consultant

    I have lived in Massachusetts all my life. Growing up in a family of car enthusiasts contributed to my passion for cars. I joined the Shaker Auto Group family in the beginning of 2016. With hard work, dedication and determination I have been able to move up the professional ladder. Knowing what I have already accomplished on a business scale in such a short amount of time reinforces my ideology that I can achieve anything I put my mind to. My professional objective is to continue my career progression while providing exemplary customer service.

    In my spare time I enjoy traveling, exploring and being outside. I find the outdoors to be freeing and peaceful.
