Kim Latam has been a lifelong resident of Romney Township. Growing up, she was a typical farmer's daughter. When she wasn't picking strawberries in her family's "pick your own patch" or hoeing beans in the field, you could find her taking care of the many farm animals from sheep to goats and from ducks to geese. You name it, she raised it! Kim has never been afraid of a little work, only scared of what might happen if she didn't complete it.
Kim moved off the farm after she was all grown up, but she didn't move far. She is still a resident of Romney Township and lives just outside the village of Wheatley. Much of Kim's free time is spent with her wonderful husband Darcy and her 2 terrific daughters Alycia & Abbey. If it's not Darcy trying to drag her to the gym, it's her daughter Abbey needing a chauffeur to her hockey or baseball games.
Kim started in the car business at the very young age of 16 as a night time receptionist. She quickly moved up to a full time position within the dealership as an office administrator. She has always been in the Ford family and has served as a Finance and Insurance manager for 11 years. She joined the Lally team in 2005 and has never looked back. Once you have experienced the Lally way, there is no other way.
With Kim's experiences in the car business and the business office, she is able to provide a clear and thorough explanation of all financing and lease arrangements for your vehicle. She also able to provide a common sense approach to explaining the benefits of extended warranties and protection packages that will ensure worry-free driving and help your vehicle retain its highest possible resale value.

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 Lally Ford, and when you put your trust in us, you'll quickly understand what good news that is for you.
