Management

Jim Surber
Managing Partner

"I was born in Austin, Texas and now call Bridge City, Texas home. I graduated college from Youngstown State University and then graduated the Dealer Executive Management school at the NCM Institute in Kansas City. I have been a devoted member of the automobile industry for over 39 years. My wife and I and 3 daughters along with 6 grandchildren enjoy time on the water as a family, or just she and I on a nice Harley ride. I am blessed to be part owner of Sabine River Ford for many reasons; but, it's the staff I enjoy the most. This is the greatest collective group I've ever been involved with. This "Golden Triangle Community" is awesome!"

I was born in Nederland, Texas and still live there today.  My hobbies include family time, volunteer work, road trips and boating.  I attended the University of Phoenix for an Associate's Degree in IT: Networking, and have received the following certifications from Ford; Ford Master Certified Sales Manager, Ford Financial Services Manager CertifiedFord Certified Pre-Owned ManagerFord Commercial Trucks Certified.  I have also received the Zurich Certificate of Achievement: Professional Finance and Insurance Management and was Adjunct Faculty for the National Cryptologic School while in the Army.  My job at Sabine River Ford challenges me every day. Having to interact or support new and returning customers, vendors, computers, networks, and five departments with multiple employees keeps me on my toes. Being from and working in the Golden Triangle, I have seen and helped many that I have known over the years and enjoy meeting new people and businesses. I am looking forward to many more years of servant leadership.
