Denny Dealer Services is Atlantic Canada’s leader in automotive dealer F&I services and detailing products.
Denise Garagan, founder of Denny Dealer Services, began her career in the automotive industry in 1981 – interest rates were in the 20% range and K Cars were the new wonder. Starting as a receptionist, Denise quickly realized she could offer more and moved to the service department as a warranty administrator. After a brief hiatus from the auto industry (moving to tourism for Walt Disney World in Florida), Denise returned to the automotive industry as service writer. In 1996, a role as business manager presented itself, offering many achievements and awards including numerous GMPP awards, the Summit award from Ford and Top Sales award at Honda for warranty penetration.

I have been in the Automotive industry for over 25 years -- what started as a job to tied me over until I found the right place for myself, quickly became a career. The industry has been very good to me, and I have enjoyed the interactions with both customers and co-workers, every one of them has made me better. In 2014 I had an opportunity to join Denise with Denny Dealer Services. Knowing Denise, and her dedication to her Dealers and Managers. She had the same attitude as I had “Always do it the right way”. I jumped at the opportunity, and our team of two has grown to 5, and will continue to grow. I look forward to talking to you about our line of innovative products.
Matt Garagan, Certified ECP Detail Specialist
My specialized background is in Science, where I attended Bishop’s University in Sherbrooke, Quebec for my undergraduate degree in BSc. Recently graduated, I am ecstatic to join the Denny team as an ECP detail specialist. Starting out as a young paper boy entrepreneur, I moved on to a lifeguarde position at the local YMCA before being taken on at Brightwood Golf and Country Club as their bartender. Working at Brightwood, I was able to develop great social skills, being involved with members of all ages. I have worked in both detail shops as well as the ECP training center located in Chicago. With a background in science, I am able to link the chemistry behind the products with the demands of our customers, creating a more personalized relationship. I am looking forward to this experience and sharing my knowledge with all Denny Dealer Services clients.
My professional background is in accounting. I have had the pleasure of working in many different industries, including restaurant, farm equipment sales/service, and wholesale. In 2010 an opportunity to work in the Automotive Aftermarket Insurance industry presented itself. Being a “car enthusiast” it seemed like a great fit. I have thoroughly enjoyed interacting with dealerships and customers from Coast to Coast. After taking a year to explore other options, I joined the Denny Dealer Services Team in January of 2015 as the Office Admin. Being part of this Team that offers quality service and programs is both exciting and very rewarding. I look forward to growing and developing with this amazing “Team”.
