Dealer Principal

Paul Murray
Dealer Principal

Paul Murray got his start in the family business in the late 70's, early 80's, doing different part time jobs and summer jobs while putting himself through university. At that time the GM dealership in Brandon Manitoba was the only Murray store. Paul moved to Medicine Hat in 1992 to run the present Murray Chev Cadillac as the Dealer Principal, and in August 2016 he officially opened the Murray Chrysler Strathmore store! 


He is partners with his three brothers, Doug in Brandon, Dan in Winnipeg and Chris in Lethbridge. Paul prides himself in being very hands on as an active engaged dealer and his office can be found off the main showroom floor, so he is easily accessible to all customers and staff. He is also very proud to have his oldest daughter Logan, as part of the Management team here. All four of his daughters played university hockey just like their dad!

Jayne Yates
Business Development Manager

Jayne is our Business Development Manager. That means she wears a lot of hats around the dealership, but most pertinent to our customers, she is often the person you talk to first when going through the sales process. If you contact us through the internet, phone, or text she's the first point of contact and helps our customers with the selection process prior to coming in. If you are looking for a specific vehicle we don't have on our lot, Jayne works with our Sales Managers and Paul to find it and bring it in.  Jayne also looks after managing our customer database to determine the sweet spot in existing contracts for customers to move into their next vehicle.

With her Jayne brings over 20 years experience in customer service, the last 5 being in the automotive industry. She loves working with customers, earning their trust and working with them to find the best vehicle to suit their lifestyle and budget. Her absolute favorite vehicle is the Ram 1500 Laramie in Delmonico Red Pearl Coat - like a crow; attracted to the shine of chrome!

Born & raised in Alberta as a farm girl, Jayne & her husband relocated 9 years ago after falling in love with the Strathmore area, knowing this was where they would raise their boys. The genuine nature of the people here just made it instantly feel like home. 

Jayne, her husband & 2 boys love camping and are avid sports fans. They enjoy watching their boys play hockey & baseball around the province! 

Jayne loves both the excitement and challenges that comes with the automotive industry, and the connection with the people you meet. Jayne says "It's always about the Customer Experience. Always".
