Bill Golling

I was born and raised here in Metro Detroit. My wife and our two dogs live in Northern Oakland County. We have two sons, the oldest is Michael whom is our FIAT Studio Directior in Birmingham, and Matthew whom is about to graduate from college. I am a second generation dealer, following in the footsteps of my father. I have been active in the business since I was 15 years old , doing everything one can do in an automotive dealership (including such things as washing cars and scrubbing floors, to being a parts counterman, a salesman, and bookkeeper.) We have been active in both industry and community causes serving as a Trustee of the Michigan Auto Dealers Fund (workman's compensation provider), being a member of both the Detroit and Michigan Automobile Dealers Assosiation, and things like coaching youth hockey for the past 16 years. When I'm not at the office, I enjoy attending auto shows/events, ice hockey, flying, boating, and sports in general.

Mike Golling
Vice President

I have lived in Michigan my whole life.  I attended Michigan State University and graduated in 2007 with a degree in Economics.  I love to continue to go back to campus to attend football games or basketball games given the season.  Outside of work, I have a wonderful wife, and we have two dogs at home.  Some of my hobbies include playing ice hockey, going to different craft breweries around Michigan and we enjoy traveling especially heading up north and enjoying all the great activities Northern Michigan has to offer.  I have been in the car business for what seems like my whole life, starting when I was 15 years old as a porter cleaning the buildings and washing cars.  To this day, cleaning a car is enjoyable if not therapeutic.  I have done a lot in the industry from selling cars to finance and insurance to running our Alfa Romeo FIAT dealership.  We have a great company with great team members who work hard every single day.  Since my grandfather started our company in 1966, we have worked hard to be honest and ethical and will continue to do so in the future!

Matthew Golling

I have lived in Metro-Detroit my whole life. My journey working at the dealership started during my summer breaks when I was fourteen pulling weeds, sweeping sidewalks, and emptying oil drums. After graduating high school, I attended Michigan State University and graduated with a degree in Hospitality Business. Going back to campus for a football or basketball game still feels like going home. After graduating from MSU, I decided to follow a passion of mine and attend Schoolcraft College for Culinary Arts. Once finished, I returned to the dealership working full time. I have been able to experience many different job positions at the dealership from selling vehicles to sales manager and finance. Currently I am running our Alfa Romeo FIAT store. I am proud to be a part of my family's business and to work with and for such great people on a daily basis. 

Joe Ellsasser
General Manager

I was born in raised in Metro Detroit. I started in the retail automotive business after attending Ferris State College.  I have enjoyed creating lifelong relationships with my customers and co-workers.  I met my wife of 32 years, Jill while selling her a new Dodge.  Jill and I have two daughters, a son-in-law, and new grandbaby.  Life is good; life is simple, just help a lot of people get what they want and treat everyone the way you would want to be treated.  What's best for the customer is my golden rule.  For fun, I cruise Woodward, like most car guys do and enjoy boating on the weekends.  We have a golden retriever, Bentley, the water dog. I reside in Clarkston and enjoy running into friends and customers in the village. 



Wendy Schultz

I was born and raised in Pontiac.  I have been in the industry for over 26 years.  My husband and I live in Commerce with our two dogs.  We have two wonderful sons and three beautiful grandkids 10, 7 & 5.  When I'm not at work, I'm spending time with family, riding my motorcycle or enjoying my hot rod.

Robert Iuliano

Heath Weishuhn
Sales Consultant

I have been a salesperson with Golling since March of 1997.  Growing with this organization has been exciting.  Here is our history.  In '97 Golling added to its Chrysler Plymouth store, the Jeep and Eagle franchise.  Then in 2003, we added the Dodge and Ram, and we became the first Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, and Ram store in Oakland County.  In order to fit everything under one roof, Mr. Golling built our Alpha Store.  We opened the doors, at our current location, in 2005.  That year we attained #1 volume status in the country.  We owe special thanks to all of our loyal customers who not only purchase/lease/service their automobiles with us, but also bring in their neighbors, families, and friends.

As an organization, we are striving to offer the best customer service possible.  Golling is one of the very few dealers in the nation, who have been recognized by FCA, as a Customer First Dealership.  Your complete satisfaction is important to us.

As a Sales Professional, I am required to attend classes and training functions to stay abreast of the latest vehicle and technology updates.  Because I want to be the best at what I do, I have completed the necessary courses and testing to be certified as a Jeep Expert, a Ram Expert, and a Uconnect Expert.  In 2016, I achieved FCA's designation as MVP, specializing in 4x4 systems. 

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wife and three kids.  They keep us busy moving between football, dance, swimming, and other fun activities in the community.  We have lived in Holly since 1999, and our oldest, Cooper, has already graduated from HHS.  He joined the Golling team in 2014 and is another smiling face you will see when you come into the store.

If you come to Golling CJDR and see me for a new car, here is what you can expect: a warm, professional greeting, a low-pressure atmosphere, and the best price in town.  Most of the people I help are repeat customers or a referral from a happy customer, but if you are reading this, and you just want someone to treat you well, listen to your concerns, and give you good recommendations, please give me a call.  I am happy to help.  248-409-2315.
