New managers announced at Flynn Auto Group

The Flynn Automotive Group announces two new managers to its team along with one manager relocating.

Todd Dauterman has joined Donnell Ford-Lincoln of Salem as general manager after 9 ½ years selling the Ford product in Columbiana county. “The larger dealership, including the commercial line of vehicles were two of many reasons I made the move,” Dauterman said. Todd replaces Davey Jones, who returns to Donnell Ford in Boardman as sales manager. Jones, a 20-year Donnell veteran, said “Donnell in Boardman has always been home to me. It’s great to be back.”

Also, Jeff Kelly has joined the group as marketing manager, replacing Patty Morris who retires after 27 years with the Flynn Group. Kelly comes to the auto industry after 25 years in the Youngstown broadcasting market. “It’s exciting to use my experience in broadcast media in a new direction with a great organization.”
