ANDRE LAMARCHE
Parts Manager

Hi, my name is Andre Lamarche.I started over 30 years ago in the automotive industry. This was a trade that peaked my curiosity at a young age, and i always wanted to drive and play with new cars. My first job in the industry was as a Lot Attendant. Here I was driving and cleaning cars all day long and i actually got paid for it! After a few years of doing this, I received the opportunity to learn the auto motive parts trade from a very experienced Parts Manager. It took many years of training but that special mentor guided me with his patience and experience. Here I am now with a great career with Laplante Dodge and still learning everyday. Come and see us in the Parts Department. We look forward to meeting you! Hi, my name is Andre Lamarche.I started over 30 years ago in the automotive industry.
