Runde Auto Group of Manchester is excited to introduce Joe Haverland, the new general manager of Runde Ford Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Manchester, Iowa!

Raised in “the flats” of East Dubuque, IL, Joe has lived in the Dubuque/Key West area for 30 years.

Before he joined the Runde Auto Group of Manchester sales staff, Joe spent 18 years in text book publishing, and 13 years as Sales Manager in that industry. After that, he spent 8 years as the Sales Manager for Rainbo Oil Company.

“In my many years of selling and sales management, I can say with confidence that the Runde Auto Group philosophy of sales is truly unique,” Joe said. “I like the no pressure, no haggle ideology that has been employed as long as I’ve been buying cars at Runde Chevrolet in East Dubuque. My second car was purchased from Runde’s — it was a 1989 black and silver Chevy Cavalier Z24, 4 speed manual — and so has every vehicle since then. The Rundes have developed a successful sales model and I am excited to be a part of the team.”

He currently lives on a small acreage south of Dubuque with his wife, Dayna, and his son, Wilson.

Joe enjoys being out in nature and developing wildlife habitat, and is interested in Jeeps, old Chevy trucks, and tractors. In his spare time, you can find him fishing and hunting, fixing old things, and mountain biking.

“We also enjoy taking short trips searching out nearby towns for regional festivals, local historical museums, or different restaurants (especially Super Clubs) and quilt shops for my wife, Dayna,” Joe said. “She is a life long quilter. She is excited to check out Manchester’s local quilt shop. Pretty sure she’ll be a ‘regular’ there.”

He is also a member of the LaMotte/Key West Knights of Columbus, volunteers for the Key West Cub Scout pack, and enjoys lectoring at St. Joes Church in Key West.

You can reach Joe by calling 866-580-9767 ext. 565, or emailing him at jhaverland@rundeautogroup.com  … or simply stop by the Runde Auto Group of Manchester dealership in person.
