GENERAL MANAGER FRIDAY MOTORS

INDUSTRY: AUTOMOBILE

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN AT THE HELM?

“I have been at Friday Motors for 20 years and as general manager for the last three.”

WHAT IS THE TOWN OF TAOS DOING RIGHT FOR BUSINESS?

“They are trying to encourage events to bring people into our community. They recognize that recreation and family recreation are huge opportunities for a town with all of our natural beauty and resources.”

WHAT MORE COULD THE TOWN BE DOING TO HELP GROW BUSINESS?

“I would love to see more emphasis on doing business with our local businesses by adapting a policy to shop local first. Many communities in New Mexico have done this and the state allows for a local preference. I also think incentives for businesses who pay property taxes, payroll taxes and gross receipts should be recognized for their contributions, and any businesses desiring to do business in Taos for short-term sales or fairs should have to pay local taxes or fees of some sort to have the privilege of marketing to our wonderful community.”

WHO ARE YOUR HEROES IN REAL LIFE?

“My mom! She never planned on being a businesswoman and she has taken all challenges in her life and turned them into opportunities. She got that from her parents and my father. They always helped us appreciate hard work

and the privilege of being a part of our community.”
