Where It All Started…

John started selling cars at the age of 18 in his hometown of Weyburn Saskatchewan while taking over the family farm. Realizing he was better in sales than farming, he dove into the auto industry becoming a very high performer. Many customers still remember his “John’s pick of the week” that ran in the weekly paper. Trina and John moved to the Edmonton area where John moved up the ranks over the next 17 years, including several senior management positions for 2 local Auto Groups.


In 2011 they purchased Kelowna Hyundai as their first addition to the Kot Auto Group. Today they are very proud to be a community-minded dealer group where all their adult children are involved in the business.

About the Owner:

Originally born and raised in Weyburn, SK, John started working at a local car dealership at the age of 18. After gaining some experience, he moved to Edmonton, AB where he met his wife, and they started their family. While in Edmonton, John acquired over 25 years of experience in different executive and management positions with several large automotive dealership groups.

Always one to take advantage of an opportunity, John purchased Kelowna Hyundai in 2011. Through his leadership and with the help of his exceptional staff, Kelowna Hyundai has managed to surpass all expectations and win the prestigious 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 President’s Award of Merit from Hyundai Canada.

An avid sports enthusiast, when John isn’t at Kelowna Hyundai, he enjoys watching and playing hockey, and enjoying the great Okanagan weather with his wife Trina and their 4 children, Janessa, Brandon, Jordan and Logan.
