Meet The Team

Jim Bruce
I’m an Oregon native, having been born and raised in Eugene. After graduating college in California in 1979, I began my automotive career in Roseburg, Oregon, working in every department at the local Ford dealership. Since that early beginning, I’ve operated several multi-franchise new car dealerships, both in Roseburg and Bend. In 1996, I decided to leave the retail automobile business and started my own wholesale business, Deschutes Auto Wholesale, in Bend, Oregon. In 1999, I was privileged to co-found Auto Network Group Northwest, Inc. Since that September in 1999, our brokers have collectively bought and sold thousands of cars, trucks, SUVs, boats and RVs, of all makes and models, to businesses and consumers world-wide.

I’ve been married to the same wonderful woman for 25+ years and I am still amazed she puts up with me. We have six children between us, and 7 grandchildren with more on the way…Grandkids, NOT kids! Living in Bend is an outdoor enthusiast’s heaven. I enjoy skiing, golfing, cycling and pickle-ball.

Pat McGinnis
When the marketing genius's said, "Pat we need everyone to do a bio for the website," it really put my brain to work. So much so that it took me two months to even start it. I really didn't want my bio to sound like, "Wow, look at all the stuff I have done!" So here is what I settled on. I married my high school sweetheart over 31 years ago. We raised two great kids and were blessed to help put them through college. Better yet, they will both be gainfully employed through the vocations they chose. I would rather be at Cultus Lake on our boat soaking up the sunshine on a nice summer day than doing anything else. As for work, I sold my first new car before I had my first legal beer. So needless to say, I have been in the car business a long time. And I love it! I have worked at franchise stores selling Porsche, Audi, BMW, VW, Ford, GMC, Pontiac, Oldsmobile, Cadillac, Nissan and Mazda. Heck, looks like I even outlasted two of those brands. Over 18 years ago my partner Jim Bruce, myself, and others started Auto Network. In the beginning, we were a wholesale only company. Meaning that we just sold to dealers. Doing this enabled me to meet great people from all walks of life in our industry. It also gave me a tremendous amount of contacts. This is why I rarely buy anything at auctions. This network of people enables me to purchase what I want and what I like. Confucius said, "Choose a job you love, and you will never work a day in your life." I guess I have had a lot time off. Cheers!

Pat Andersch
Internet Manager
I am the Auto Network Group Internet Manager, helping to launch the Internet Division over nine years ago. Our customer's who have purchased late model cars, trucks, RVs and boats, span the globe. Auto Network's aggressive wholesale to the public pricing model has been embraced by hundreds of savvy clients. Our ebay “Power Seller” designation and my 100% positive feedback speaks for itself. Many of my clients either have us ship their vehicle to them or I pick them up at the airport and handle their transaction in person. In those rare occasions when I'm not working, I enjoy Central Oregon's outdoor activities. I am also a bit of a music buff and enjoy the many local, world class concerts held throughout Central Oregon.

Customer service is my hot button and his #1 priority…But that’s what everyone says right? Bottom line…my customers say it best…Here are just a few of their comments:

Rich Marston
RV Broker
I’m a broker with the Auto Network Group as well as the owner of RV Sales of Bend Oregon, LLC. And I am extremely passionate about the RV industry!

My experience comes from the many years, spent helping my clients and friends live out their RV dreams! I began in the RV industry, right out of high school in the quaint town of Langley on Whidbey Island in Washington state. I entered the industry as a “lot boy”, excelled in my position and was promoted to RV sales. Over time, I moved up thru the management ranks until ultimately, I earned the coveted seat of ownership in not one but two different RV dealerships. (Beaver Coach Sales of Oregon, in Bend, Oregon & RV Sales of Oregon, in Eugene, Oregon.) Experience and trust is why a majority of my business is now repeat and referral. “My greatest complement is a referral.”

My passion comes from the love of my family and the RV lifestyle. My wife Debbie and I enjoy traveling in our motorhome along with our two golden retrievers. In fact, we recently took over a year trip in our motorhome and visited 29 National Parks. “What a beautiful country we live in!”

By making Bend our home again and teaming up with the true legends at the helm of Auto Network US, I will continue to share my experience with you and your family. Whether you are buying your next dream RV, or want to sell your coach, please call me or share my name with your friends and family. Together, there’s no doubt, we will have success!

J. Michael Hammons
I am an native Oregonian, originally from the valley then moved to Bend in 2011. I am a father of three amazing kids. I have been an automotive connoisseur since my youth, where I became a parts manager at a local parts store and then moved onto Volvo and BMW franchise dealerships working primarily in parts and service. I opened my own dealership (Mt Hood Motorsports of Portland) in 1998. We specialized in primarily Volvo, sales parts and service. In 2012, I opened Specialty Motorsports of Bend, specializing in luxury & performance vehicles. I have always had a love for European vehicles. I came to ANG NW as a broker in 2016. This has been a perfect fit for my skills and abilities. I really enjoy the team that we have here and the love we share for fine autos. I spend many evenings fabricating and building custom cars at my home shop. When I am not at work or in my home shop, you can find me enjoying our amazing Central Oregon outdoors, hiking, fishing, kayaking, or mountain biking with my family.
