I have been in auto sales for 19 years and have loved every day of it! It's gratifying, challenging and rewarding. I have been a New Vehicle Sales Manager at Berge Ford for over 7 years. Berge Ford is a great place to work. The entire team is just that, a team and it makes work fun.

I have two married daughters, both whom reside in the east valley and three lovely granddaughters who participate in competition cheerleading.

My name is Steve Roger and I was born and raised in Southern California. I've been a part of the Collision repair industry in various roles since 1986. My family and I moved to Arizona 2004 to become a part of the Berge Ford team. I truly enjoy my career. I take great pride in returning our customer's vehicles to pre-accident condition and seeing the smile on their face when they pick up their vehicle.
My family and I spend our free time Camping, ATV riding and watching our two boys play baseball.
I grew up the youngest of nine children on my father's dairy farm in Dubuque, IA. At age 12, my father and mother retired from farming and became "Snowbirds" and so did I. That is how I ended up in Arizona. Upon graduating from high school in Mesa, I applied for my first job with Ford as a pricing clerk in parts department.
That was long before computers became an everyday necessity. I worked my way into management in 2000 and have been managing a Ford Parts Department ever since. I am easy-going, fun loving and some say spoiled (has to do with the youngest part above) but my first goal is customer satisfaction and retention.
My hobbies include riding my Harley and Boating with friends and family.
