  • Adam Lally
    General Manager

    Thank you for visiting our staff page, and for your interest in our dealership. I am extremely proud to work with every one of the people on this page. They dedicate themselves to great customer service everyday. It's our mission to get you on the road, and keep you on the road, and for you to have fun driving!


    Tell us a little bit about you/What do you love about your job?:

    I've grown up in and around our family's Ford dealership. My grandpa Lally started his gas station and service garage in 1946 and my dad got the Ford franchise a few years before I was born, so it's been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. My first official position was as a lot attendant after school. I had a lot of fun coming to work back then, and I still do today. Through the years I have worked in the service & sales departments doing acting in a variety of different roles, and I've learns lots at each position. I've always has a passion for customer service, when you grow up in the dealership environment it's easy to feel like you have one big extended family in the employees and customers at the dealership.


    Speaking of families, mine is one of the most important things to me. My dad had five sisters and my mom had 3, so I have tonnes of cousins and an amazing extended family who have been there for me my whole life. I recently got married and have since started a family of my own. I'm not sure if my son will want to join me in the business one day, but one thing is for sure - I know that I can't wait to take him for his first Mustang ride!


    Motorized vehicles have always been in my blood. I love boating, snowmobiling and really any fun activity that has a motor. I have played hockey in Tilbury my whole life and I've been an avid Red Wings fan since they were losing to San Jose in the first round in the early 90's.


    The Community of Tilbury and the surrounding area is great because:

    Growing up in the Tilbury/Comber area, I think the small town lifestyle just becomes a part of who you are sometimes. I love the people in this community and our whole surrounding area. I think we're truly lucky to live in this great place with nice people, who take care of each other and care about their community.

  • Kim Latam
    Finance & Insurance Manager

    When did you start working here?

    I've been at Lally Ford since 2005.

    Tell us a little bit about you.

    I have been a lifelong resident of Romney Township. Growing up, I was a typical farmer's daughter. When I wasn't picking strawberries in my family's "pick your own patch" or hoeing beans in the field, you could find me taking care of the many farm animals from sheep to goats and from ducks to geese. You name it, I raised it! I've never been afraid of a little work, only scared of what might happen if I don't complete it. I moved off the farm after I was all grown up, but I didn't move far. I am still a resident of Romney Township I live just outside the village of Wheatley. Much of my free time is spent with my wonderful husband Darcy and my 2 terrific daughters Alycia & Abbey. If it's not Darcy trying to drag me to the gym, it's my daughter Abbey needing a chauffeur to her hockey or baseball games.

    I started in the car business at the very young age of 16 as a night time receptionist. I quickly moved up to a full time position within the dealership as an office administrator. I have always been in the Ford family and have served as a Finance and Insurance manager for 11 years.

    Why you should choose me as your Finance Manager: With my experiences in the car business and the business office, I'm able to provide a clear and thorough explanation of all financing and lease arrangements for your vehicle. I also am 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.

    I love helping people get the vehicle set up the way they want it to be set up, I love knowing that we've satisfied the customer's needs in terms of how they're going to take care of it. I love seeing the excitement on their face when they're going through the process of making a major life purchase!

  • Vince Lally
    President

    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.
