    Neil Kalawsky

    President and General Manager

    Neil Kalawsky describes himself as a “hands-on dealer who works in the store every day and runs a small family-operated dealer group.” An accountant by training, Neil began his automotive career in 1965, fresh out of school, at Camrose Auto Service Ltd., in Camrose, Alberta. Progressing through the ranks there from accountant to sales manager, he subsequently held controller positions in various dealerships before acquiring his first GM store in Killam, Alberta, in 1978. Eleven years later Neil purchased Kalawsky Chevrolet Buick GMC and has since built it into a thriving business that prides itself on attention to detail and providing superior service at all levels.

    Darlene Kalawsky

    Vice President

    Darlene has been involved in the operation of Kalawsky Chevrolet Buick GMC from day one. Apart from the more serious side of business, Darlene’s touches can be seen around the dealership and often take the form of fresh-cut flowers and home-baked goods for customers and staff. In addition to her busy role as Vice President, Darlene finds time for many community causes. She has served on the board of the Selkirk College Foundation and organized a key fundraising event on its behalf, the Festival of Trees. She is a proud supporter of the Castlegar & District Library, helping to raise funds for its expansion and its latest project, the creation of the Rotary Centennial Garden. Darlene has also organized a weekly summer concert series at Kinnaird Park and served as local vice-chair of Communities in Bloom for the city of Castlegar. She is a past president of the Castlegar Sunrise 2000 Rotary Club. In 1996, she was named Castlegar’s Citizen of the Year. That same year, she received a trustee award from the British Columbia Library Association. Darlene also volunteers with the SPCA.

    Don McTeer

    Don McTeer

    Collision Centre Manager

    Don has a long history in the autobody business. He has seen a lot of dented, dinged and damaged vehicles and put most of them back together. His eye for detail, combined with a state-of-the-art paint booth and a crew of gifted craftsman, means your repair will be done properly and look good too. Don is also a keen outdoorsman, spending much of his time on his mountain bike in the summer and downhill ski touring in the winter. You wouldn’t guess it, but he has been known to throw his body off some pretty amazing places on his bike and skis and survive. When he’s not working at Kalawsky Chevrolet Buick GMC, he can be found building himself a summer retreat from the ground up, the hard way, with his own hands.
