  • Scott Brooks
    Sales Manager

    I have been a part of the Tomkinson family for years.  I started selling cars for Tomkinson as a summer job right after attending Manchester College.  I decided to stay with the company and make it a career at our Chrysler store.  I sold BMWs for about 5 years.  I came back in as a new Sales Manager. I am happy I made the decision to join Tomkinson once again!  On my days off from work, I enjoy spending time with my family.  I have been happily married for about 16 years to Kristie, and we have two children Madison and Tyler.

  • Jason Keefer
    Service Writer
    260-436-9000

    Hello I'm Jason Keefer. I have been with Tomkinson BMW now for a collective 8 years. I would describe myself as an avid BMW enthusiast. I believe that BMW is not only a brand but a lifestyle. I have experience with other luxury vehicle manufactures but have proof that BMW is the best. In 2014 I achieved my highest ranking for BMW Profiles In Achievement placing 7th out of 185 service advisors throughout the nation! Thank you for taking the time to complete the BMW survey. I couldn't have achieved the ranking without all my favorite clients!
    In my free time away from the Service Center, I enjoy all things racing. I participate in local SCCA events, attend trackdays at area road courses on my sport bike, visit Indianapolis Motor Speedway each year for the MotoGP race and I am currently a BMW Car Club of America member. "If it goes fast and has wheels, I will try it!"
    I am married to Jenny and we have 2 dogs named Dingo and Sausage. We regularly travel to the Caribbean at different all inclusive resorts. I feel fortunate to have these experiences and this lifestyle BMW has created for my family.
