As part of our ongoing, year-long partnership with Beaver County Auto, we will be featuring a sales person of the month. March’s recipient is Phil Tyler. We conducted a brief interview with Phil so that you may get to know him better, and if you’re looking to purchase a vehicle from their dealerships in Chippewa, make sure you ask for Phil.


1. Tell us about yourself and your background. 

I’m a Beaver County boy.  I’ve always been local and plan on being the rest of my life. I graduated from Blackhawk High School, class of 2006. I have adopted New Brighton as my permanent home base along with my wife. I spent some time career bouncing but as I got older it became apparent that I had only two job skills:  Customer service and ANYTHING that runs on gas.  That led me to auto sales.  It brings out the best in me while allowing me to help the people of Beaver County with one of the biggest purchase of their lives – a car purchase.

2. What do you like most about working for Beaver County Auto?

This place is like no other dealership in almost every aspect. We still stick to the same plan that has always been in effect since way before my time. WE PUT THE CUSTOMER FIRST! I have grown more in the three years I have been here than I could have ever imagined and am grateful for all I have gained. I could not be happier to answer the question, “What dealership do you work at?” We are a family. There is always a little bit of a competitive feeling around here and I think that really gives us an edge on others due to the fact we strive for greatness. But at the end of the day this is my second family.

3. Why should someone buy a vehicle from Beaver County Auto?

We go above and beyond for our customers from sales to service. I’ve never worked at nor witnessed another dealership do what we do. We are heavily involved in Kyree’s Dream Team and the Mario Lemieux Foundation, along with countless other local organizations. We not only strive to give the community the best service but are also involved in the community as well.

4. What’s your favorite vehicle on the lot?

Anything SRT. I am a huge SRT guy, old or new, SUV or coupe. I am constantly researching all of it. If i had to chose one it would be the Grand Cherokee SRT, especially for this area. It is the all around best vehicale due to weather and terrain. You have to respect a vehicle with a 6.4 Hemi in it.

5. What do you like most about living and working in Beaver County?

I love how tight-knit the area is. Everyone knows everyone, and it is very easy to network around here. Word of mouth is my key to success . Helping just one person can spread the word to many and 90% of my business is done through word of mouth and referrals.
