Michael Sheffield
Sales Consultant

Say hi to Michael Sheffield. Michael is a Texas boy who ventured to the PNW to marry the woman of his dreams. Since then he has pursued his career in the auto industry. Michael is starting his second year at Korum, and is in his fourth year in the automotive industry. He loves working in this industry and getting to know customers. Everything from how their day is to what they do for a living. "You hear all sorts of careers that you may have not even known existed" says Michael. Michael is driven by making people smile and laugh. If he doesn't manage to accomplish one of those two things, then in his mind, he failed at his Job. Michael may be a little guy, but he's a big deal and has a big heart. When he isn't at work, Michael is typically spending time with his wife and family. So next time you come by Korum Hyundai, come and say hi to Michael!

I like being involved in helping find the right vehicle at the right time, and advising the customer in getting the vehicle they want." Tim is driven by helping each and every customer find the right vehicle to suit their needs. When Tim isn't working you can find him enjoying the great outdoors.

Jim Koch
General Manager

Say hi to Jim! Jim grew up in a small town here in the Northwest and appreciates how important it is to treat everyone like they're your neighbor, as they most likely are! Service, integrity, and hospitality are critically important to Jim and the way in which he serves fellow employees and his customers. Jim is extremely grateful for the top-notch team he is blessed to be a part of. Working in the automotive industry for 19 years, and for Korum for five, Jim is very knowledgeable and truly cares about the needs of the customer. His favorite part about working in this industry is the opportunity to see the customer face light up with a big smile when they have found the solution to satisfy their wants and needs. When Jim isn't serving the customer, he can be found hanging out with his wife, or playing with his dogs. He also enjoys taking his motorcycle out for a ride and working on his house. Jim is a pretty great guy, so make sure to say hi when you see him at Korum!
