Chris Johnson
Chris Johnson
General Manager

Meet Chris, he moved to London back in 2003 after growing up in “The Big City” of Toronto. Shortly after making the move, he started his career in the car business. If you were to ask him if he would ever get out of the car business, his reply would start with a staggering “No” and turn into a public service announcement about how much he loves his job (which is why we stopped asking him). When he is isn’t at the dealership, he enjoys spending time with his wife, three boys and two big dogs (which is why you would find him driving a CX9).Meet Chris, he moved to London back in 2003 after growing up in “The Big City” of Toronto.

Ian  McPherson
Ian McPherson
Mazda Brand Ambassador

Ian started his automotive career in 1978 when he spent 2 years working at the Ford St Thomas assembly plant. But it wasn't until November 2003 that he started selling Mazdas - and they remain, and always will be - the only brand he wants to sell. His relationship with Pfaff Mazda began in June 2017. Ian went to university in the States on a swimming scholarship, and was a four-year member of our national swim team. His family has lived in central London for over 30 years. Family time is all important to him; but a little golf every now and then is also a great thing. And pets! Two dogs, three cats.Ian started his automotive career in 1978 when he spent 2 years working at the Ford St Thomas assembly plant.
