    I started selling cars as a summer job. Many years later I still enjoy the satisfaction of helping a guest find the vehicle that satisfies their needs. I also enjoy helping my teammates to grow and be successful. Holiday Automotive shares my values and helps me fulfill the dreams of my guests and teammates.

    I’ve been with Holiday Automotive since about 2002. When I’m not at work or spending time with my family and my two grandchildren, I enjoy kicking back on my boat while listening to Boston or getting lost in the latest James Patterson book. I also enjoy a nice sunset and going to Jim & Linda’s Lakeview Supper Club in Malone.

    Hello, my name is Robby Palagyi and I am a Financial Services Manager at Holiday Ford in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. I relocated from Anchorage, Alaska a couple of winters ago and love it here! I have 3 kids and a beautiful wife who was born and raised here. I have been in the car business for over 15 years and enjoy coming to work every day, as I enjoy helping guests find their family’s dream vehicle. I am here to assist you in finding that perfect car/truck/SUV and love every minute of it! Please get in touch with me if there is anything at all I can assist you with. You will be treated with respect and I will always give you my all to ensure you are more than happy so you come back to see me every time you or anyone you know has any vehicle needs. I promise you will be in great hands! I look forward to meeting you!

    I am a mother of one sweet little boy, and we have a beautiful little girl born at the end of August. I originally grew up in Waucousta, Wisconsin which is a small town just between Eden and Campbellsport on Hwy 45. I strive to overcome the “scariness of the finance department” at car dealerships by fully explaining the contracts and coverages that are provided and offered in our department.

    I’m a proud father of 3 beautiful children with my lovely wife Rachel. We raise our family on the outskirts of the Fond du Lac area where we look to old fashioned concepts of “it takes a village” to raise our kids and neighborhood children. Hard work, discipline, and teamwork are all on the tip of my tongue when it comes to teaching life lessons. Having never sold vehicles before my time here at Holiday… but taking strong lessons from previous sales experience and the restaurant industry, my sales career at Holiday has truly blossomed. Old fashioned concepts of taking care of the customer and providing a great customer experience never go out of style. The proof is in the pudding as they say… 2015 and 2016 number one salesperson by volume. In 2016 I broke an all-time sales record of 302 vehicles and claimed the top prize as the only Diamond Level Elite Salesperson at Holiday. I will work hard for you to find the best deal, right vehicle, and the best financing options available.

    Welcome to Holiday Automotive! I am an incredibly lucky wife and the mother of two sweet girls. I’ve been in the automotive industry for almost twenty years, but dove headfirst into sales at Holiday GM in June of 2015, and I’ve loved every moment of it. The purchasing process can be intimidating for many people, so I do all I can to make it simple and stress-free. There are two moments in the process that always bring a smile to my face… on the test drive when you realize that this might be your new car or truck, and handing over the keys. My office is conveniently located at our main GM store, right next to Walmart, but I am happy to help you throughout the dealership. Whether you’re looking for a new or pre-owned vehicle, Certified or budget-friendly, we have just what you need. I look forward to meeting you live and in person, soon. Your priorities are my priorities. Your time frame is my time frame. I can’t wait to meet you!

    I’ve been in this business for under 2 years, but I’ve been a car-lover my whole life. My dad taught me a lot about different cars growing up. When I was 16, I was able to help purchase my first car, a 1968 Camaro. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family; my wife and two children. As a family, we share a love for movies, outdoors, and enjoying new experiences together. I truly enjoy getting to know my customers and knowing that I’m helping them make a decision that works for them and meets not only their “wants,” but their “needs,” all while keeping it within their means.

    Hello car seekers and car buyers! Born and raised in Fond du lac, I have a small white Bichon Frise named Marley. I enjoy sports and getting outside as much as possible, baseball, softball, football, basketball. Staying busy is always my number one goal!!!! For my few years in the car business, I have learned a lot. But the number one thing I learned was just to be there to take care of my customers while making the car buying experience as simple and easy as possible. If you like the sound of simple and easy, and a car buying experience catered to finding the perfect vehicle for YOU, you know to ask for me at any of our GM, Ford, Budget or my home store at Mazda for ANY of your new or used car needs at Holiday Automotive!!
