  • Chuck Van Horn
    Owner


    5308297a96924a4d8dcac0ec084c98fc
  • Dick Strong
    President

    Dick Strong is a great example of working up through the ranks. He started as a service technician, then moved up to Service Manager, on to Parts and Service, General Manager of Van Horn Dodge, and finally the President of the whole Van Horn Automotive Group position he occupies today. 

    A life-long native of the Plymouth area, he relishes the challenge of expanding the Van Horn group beyond Sheboygan County into a truly national used car presence. He makes a point to be very visible around the dealership and takes an active interest in customers' experience at Van Horn. 

    If Dick isn't at the dealership, he'll probably be hitting the golf course, the bike trail, the snowmobile trail, the basketball court, the fishing hole, or working for several local charities.

    Adam joined Van Horn's professional sales team in 2003 as a Sales Consultant, then moved up to Sales Manager and recently has been promoted to General Manager. Adam loves helping customers getting their new rides.

    He graduated from UW Stout with a degree in Technical Education. Prior to working at Van Horn, Gaedke was a Tech Ed teacher at Sheboygan North.

    When asked what he likes most about his job, he stated, "I enjoy the people I work with and the sense of accomplishment we achieve." In addition to working he also enjoys running, cycling, and traveling with his wife and son.
