  • Brian Chase
    Service Director, 32 Year Employee

    I am the Service Director here at Elk Grove Toyota.  Our hope is to meet or exceed the customers' expectations for quality automotive service.  The only way we can do this is by providing a quality and cost effective repair, done right the first time.  We have the facilities and people to do the job right in a reasonable length of time.  Because of this, we see more Toyotas for maintenance than any other dealer in Northern California.

    I began in the automotive business almost 40 years ago when I started washing cars at my father's Chevy dealership.  I started my Florin Road/Elk Grove Toyota career in 1982.  Since that time I have watched as the Florin Road store expanded several times and when we opened our new store in Elk Grove.  Over the last 32 years there have been changes in Toyota and the community.  I am proud to be part of both.

    I am a Sacramento native and have spent my entire life in the area.  I enjoy the camping, water and snow sports available here.  Personally I drive a Toyota FJ Cruiser and my wife drives a Toyota Prius.  When my oldest daughter started driving I made sure she had a safe and reliable car - a Toyota Corolla.  In my spare time I enjoy attending my two daughters' sporting events.

  • Jim Blacksten
    Sales Manager 7 Year Employee

    My name is Jim Blacksten. I started in the automotive profession back in 1996 with Toyota in Stockton.

    I was a salesperson for 2 ½ years, and was then promoted to finance manager.  After four years in finance I decided to help salespeople create a positive and caring approach and become a sales manager.  After 10 years with Stockton Toyota, an opportunity became available at the brand new Elk Grove Toyota.  I jumped at the chance to work for this world class dealership.  My new dealership has a beautiful building and the people are a joy to work with.

    My experience with Toyota has allowed me to watch many customers pass their Toyotas on to their children so that they can put the next 100,000 miles on it.  My wife enjoys her Camry as she commutes 80 miles each day.  She will probably pass it on to one of my nephews soon.  We love taking our Sequoia on family trips to Reno, San Diego, and Washington State where I grew up.  My father owns a Sequoia and usually has to arm wrestle my mom to see who gets to drive it to the store.

    Whatever our destination happens to be, my 8 and 11 year old boys are always ready to play a game of football or basketball.  In my spare time I love playing golf, hitting tennis balls, and recently I am enjoying John Grisham Adventure novels.

  • John Hilscher
    Sales Manager

    My first job as a salesman in the automotive business was at a Stockton Toyota dealership in 1987 and since then I've worked and managed several foreign and domestic brands. Most recently, I was managing a boat and powersports dealership in the central valley. 

    The thing I enjoy most about the car business is dealing with different people everyday. I enjoy the challenge of or ability to help customers find ways to get into the vehicle of their wants, needs and or dreams.

    When given the opportunity to come to Elk Grove Toyota I jumped at the chance with the encouragement from family and peers due to it's solid reputation for taking care their customers and giving back to the community.

    I feel very fortunate to work along side a great group of like minded managers, sales associates and employees that truly care about the people walking into the dealership for their automotive needs.

    When not at work, I enjoy being around a pool, river, BBQ along with friends and family.

    If we've crossed paths in the past or haven't and you feel I can help in any of your automotive needs, please don't hesitate to give me a call and I'll show you what it's like to purchase a vehicle from Elk Grove Toyota.
