Justin MacCarthy
Justin MacCarthy
General Sales Manager

Justin was born in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, but grew up in Prince Rupert. 19 years ago, he made the long trip down Highway 16 to relocate to Terrace. His 1st car was a 1986 Ford Escort pony…fast forward to the 2000’s, he decided to upgrade and buy a dealership. When he’s not appraising trades or running a well-rounded Sales crew, you can usually find him waist deep in one of our rivers fishing or hiking with his wife of 19 years, Ashley. Together, the two are proud pet parents of Bailey and Mr. Watson. Justin also spends his time defending his choice in coffee additives (he likes double double) while the rest of his management team appreciates their coffee ‘au naturel’.Justin was born in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, but grew up in Prince Rupert. 19 years ago, he made the long trip down Highway 16 to relocate to Terrace.

His first car was a 1953 Chevrolet 2-door hardtop, which I think we can all agree is a pretty awesome car! In his spare time, Dave loves riding his bicycle (when the weather allows for it, of course), he loves working on model trainsets, and he's an avid reader and can probably show you a thing or two about crossword puzzles. When we asked Dave what his favourite part of working at MacCarthy GM, Dave said the people are great, the customers are amazing, he also likes to drive, so his role as shuttle driver is a great fit.

I grew up on a farm in Fort Fraser, but I have lived all over Northern BC. I have worked for MacCarthy Motors since the fall of 2013, and am truly enjoying my experience here. My first vehicle was an ’87 Chevy S10 2WD that I named Dead Mans Hand. Sadly, it met it’s fiery demise in the middle of a road trip when the fuel pump failed and my cousin accidentally doused my engine in gasoline, trying to help. I now drive a 2011 GMC Terrain, which everyone calls my mini-van, and my insurance calls a train, which is kind of funny, so I’m running with it.I grew up on a farm in Fort Fraser, but I have lived all over Northern BC.

Her family is originally from Telegraph Creek. She’s been with MacCarthy GM for 4 years, and says the best part of her job is how she gets to help people find the perfect vehicle for them and their needs. You can often hear her say “What drives me is what drives you”, she knows the GM brand is outstanding, and she trusts it, and she drives what she sells. Her first car was a 2007 GMC Sierra, and although she’s gotten older, her great taste hasn’t changed, she’s a bonafide GM girl and these days you can find her in a 2017 Chevrolet Silverado that she’s named Gurdy….or Dirty Gurdy after a weekend of exploring the outdoors, country music and tailgate parties. She’s a proud pet parent to two girls; Tehkahche (which is Frog in Tahltan) and Luna…..who is a little ‘loonie’. She’s a vanilla ice cream fan…. with a shot of Baileys.
