Hi! My name is Bob Lisy. I am proud to say that I have been the General Manager of Ganley Westside Imports for 18 years. I live in Sagamore Hills, OH and have been in the car business for over 40 years. I have spent all of my life in Northeast Ohio, attending Chanel High School and graduating from The University of Dayton. I have 4 grown children and 4 grand daughters. My hobbies include collecting old cars from the 60's and 70's. I stay in shape by walking my 2 yellow labs (Phaeton & Touareg). Yes these are VW models, just don't tell Phaeton he has been discontinued. I am also a 15 year participant in the Pedal to the Point (MS150). I am glad to be part of the huge growth of this auto campus from a small dealership to a 10 acre full service facility with new buildings and national recognition for our sales and service accomplishments.
I've been the general sales manager at Ganley Westside Imports since 1997. I graduated University School in Hunting Valley Ohio, class of 1987 and Miami University in Oxford Ohio, class of 1991. The Ganley Auto Group has been my home since 1994 when I began my automotive career in sales at Ganley Honda in North Olmsted. In my free time I coach youth hockey and play adult ice hockey in Cleveland Heights and Shaker Heights.
I hope you find my staff personable, professional and helpful in not only your purchase or lease but throughout your ownership. I take pride in our staff and attribute the success of the store to the quality of character of our staff.
