For Mario Bourbonnais, the passion for entrepreneurship is matched only by his great love of cars. Already at 16, he bought his very first vehicle: a Ford Mustang Shelby. In his early twenties, Mario was working on marketing a tool for car dealerships: Projicar. During a presentation at Longueuil Honda, he was unable to sell his product: instead, he was offered the position of sales manager for the dealership, barely 25 years old. He worked under the Honda brand for many years, as sales manager and then as general manager, until he purchased his first dealership in 2006: Chambly Mazda, on the south shore of Montreal. The following year, he took on the management of a group of three dealerships in which he was a partner. He joined the Leclair Group in 2009 as Managing Director and Partner of Honda Ile-Perrot, a position he has held since that day, in addition to becoming a Partner of Pie-IX Chrysler in 2016.
