Donnie Armstrong
General Manager

Donnie has had the pleasure of working in the Automotive Industry since 2001, throughout Atlantic Canada and in Ontario, where he was a key person in the growth and successful operations of Ontario's Largest Used Car Dealership before moving back home to Nova Scotia, to work as an owner/operator of an independent used vehicle dealership in the valley, and most recently as the General Manager at Auction Direct . Donnie makes it his personal commitment to strive to make sure all customers are treated in a fair and respectful manner. Having been born and raised in Berwick NS, Donnie is now proud to have the opportunity to raise his two sons along with his wife in his home town. When not working, Donnie can almost always be found volunteering with various community organizations within the valley and spending countless hours on the soccer pitch, and in the rinks as a volunteer and coach for children's local teams.Donnie has had the pleasure of working in the Automotive Industry since 2001, throughout Atlantic Canada and in Ontario, where he was a key person in the growth and successful operations of Ontario's Largest Used Car Dealership before moving back home to Nova Scotia, to work as an owner/operator of an independent used vehicle dealership in the vall...Read MoreRead Less

Sales Professional

I joined the team at Auction Direct in 2016 after having worked as an Insurance Underwriter for many years. One of the greatest skills I have learned is the art of listening. It is this skill that enables me to satisfy my customers wants and needs. An avid car enthusiast, I took a hands on approach to repairing my own vehicles - often under the supervision of an older brother or an uncle who were both Journeymen Auto Mechanics. I am a lifelong resident of Nova Scotia, born in Halifax and spent my formative years growing up in the West-end of Halifax. I coached youth soccer for many years, having participated with two local Clubs. I am a past Director of the CISL Soccer League and former Head Coach of the Clayton Park Junior High (CPJH) School's Girls A Soccer team. I eagerly look forward to providing all my past and future customers with the very best automotive buying experience possible. With Auction Directs terrific brand promise and huge inventory I am 100% confident that I can get you on the road in the right vehicle for you!
