Our Staff

Tom Leckie
Tom Leckie
General Sales Manager

When did you start working here? I have been selling cars and trucks for over 30 years and still love it as much as the day I started as an 18 year old in 1984 at the old Moe Campbell Ford in Windsor, and moved onto Rose City Ford in the late 90’s. The opportunity came to me to manage here, and I’ve worked for Southpoint since January 2013.

Tell us a little bit about you: I am married to my loving wife Robin and have three beautiful kids Eric, Matthew and Miranda. My perfect day is waking up early, having a good breakfast then going out to play a round of golf with my boys. I’d then love to end the day with a Red Wing game. Why I work here: I was looking for another challenge and Vince’s reputation for great customer service was a perfect fit. Working in Leamington in a new building couldn’t be better. You’ve got to challenge yourself everyday, and being General Sales manager for sure presents new challenges everyday, which I can always deal with.

What I like most about my job: Still being able to be involved with the customers and working with the sales representatives to come to a great deal, for both parties. I love the challenge, and I love teaching and motivating my employees. Why you should choose me as your Sales Manager: I treat my staff and my customers how I would want to be treated as a customer and an employee. Plus I have been around quite awhile and have learned how easy this business is if you don’t complicate things. I want to prove to you, the customer that I’m the best around.

What’s your favorite Ford and why? Ford F-150 Lariat, as a guy who is 6’4 it fits my needs, and still has tons of room for my family of 5, plus… I love the sound system, I rock out to tunes every morning on my way into work.

The Community of Leamington and/or surrounding area is great because: I used to sell to the growers here in Leamington years ago and grew fond of this community. We have a beautiful waterfront and lots of great fun loving people living here. I also love the easy-goin’ attitude of the people here, everyone is so friendly and welcoming.

In 1946 my parents opened a service station in Comber and immediately began working hard to establish a high standard for how customers would be treated. Over the course of the next 36 years, we continually worked toward building a reputation for customer satisfaction which extended beyond the confines of this tiny village.

In the fall of 1982, we brought this customer-focused manner of doing business under the Ford logo. I became a licensed mechanic and purchased the Ford dealership from my parents three years later. Fortunate enough to have developed loyal customers who regularly referred their friends, family and co-workers; I decided to expand in 1995, moving the dealership to Tilbury.

At Lally Ford, everyone strives toward building a relationship with our customers that will allow us to provide their transportation needs for life. From the people we recruit, to the vehicles we stock, and everything in between, our goal is to realize continuous improvement for our customers.

Customer satisfaction is a journey, not a destination. We understand this well at Southpoint Ford, and when you put your trust in us, you’ll quickly understand what good news that is for you.
