After spending most of his waking life working to fuel his passion for cars, particularly the BMW brand, Paul decided to finally flip that coin on it’s head and start to have his cars work for him. Thus, SHIFT Motors was born, incorporated in 2010, and operates as an OMVIC registered motor vehicle dealer focusing on the acquisition and sale of luxury passenger vehicles, particularly the BMW, MINI and LOTUS brands.
To have Paul describe it would sound more as if he was a foster parent finding loving homes for his kids, first rescuing them from previous abandonment (off-lease), grooming them, nurturing them and placing them with carefully selected and screened fellow enthusiasts of a similar mind.
With an automotive and transportation career spanning over 25 years, Paul has held positions with Ford, Mercedes-Benz and most recently with BMW Canada in a corporate assistant sales manager position. He has also spent over 10 years in the field of global sales and export of commercial trucks with Volvo Trucks North America as well as through his privately held corporation, Prefit Global.
Over this time, a strong network has been created and close relationships developed with brands such as BMW, MINI and LOTUS both on the corporate and dealer level, and now, with the assistance of his equally knowledgeable and passionate sales team of Robert and Alexander, as well as his sister Mandy operating as General Manager, they are fully equipped, willing and able to help with all of your automotive needs. If you are looking to buy, sell, browse or just have an automotive related question, they’d love to hear from you.
