Service Director

Cindy Lentz started her career with the Germains in 1992. She was quickly given opportunity to take on more responsibility and in 1996 she started her career in management. Lentz has been with the Germain Organization for 22 years and has overseen service department operations at six stores for Rick Germain. There are few women who hold executive positions in the dealership atmosphere. So, how does a woman get a job usually held by a man? She grew up on a farm in Southern Minnesota where her mother and father were not blessed with a boy, but rather 4 girls. Her father was influential in the belief "the work has to be done and you're going to do it." Without knowing it, he encouraged her to believe that there are no gender specific roles in life and the Germain family agrees.
