Minneapolis Breakfast Club

Take a Drive With Lupient Automotive Group

It’s a beautiful late summer morning!  Rumor has it that the flower guy, Dick Lindskoog, slept in the parking lot last night just to be the first to arrive. He was there to meet the usual early birds.

President Robbie Danko called our meeting to order.

Today’s guests were Tom Pell from Morgan Stanley who found us online, and Joe Fredkove, who was brought by Mark Simon.  He refers to himself as a Chief Learning Officer for advanced manufacturing.

Our honorary members in attendance were Mark Simon, Russ Bremner, and Martin Peyer.

We still need you to pick your spot on the 2018 Craft Talk schedule with Craig Blixrud.  You can email him with questions, to find out about available dates, or to sign up at blixrudhomes@gmail.com.

Kelsey Wolter gave us an update on what website changes have been made so far.

Next week’s meeting on September 20th will be held OFFSITE at Berger Transfer & Storage. Please click here to view the map.

This Week’s Craft Talk

Lupient Automotive Group has been in existence for almost 48 years. Lupient strives to maintain the reputation created by our founder Jim Lupient. Jim started out as a lot attendant before being forced into service as a salesman at a young age. His goal was simple to give his guests the best experience possible. At Lupient we believe in showing our guests what we can do each and every day. To me the most important part of the process is the relationship. You can buy a car from anyone but you may not get the attention you need and deserve. I will always give you an honest answer and let you know what I can do to help you out. Lupient is able to lease any make/model new or used. We can also lease you box trucks, bobcats and just about any other type of equipment or machinery needed to meet your vehicle needs. Our employee buyer program is a free benefit you can offer to you staff at no cost to you. So whether you need a car for yourself or a fleet for work let me show what Lupient Leasing can offer you.

Please register for next week’s Pot of Gold with Rich Junghans at Richard.Junghans@lupient.com.

Our business exchange today was short and sweet, with the following members being thanked: Windrider, Smile Keepers/Susanne’s Cards, Staples Advantage, House Lift Remodeler, and DESQ Office Solutions.


Today’s Pot of Gold was drawn by Chuck Shreffler of Shreffler Law, PLLC, and our winner was Chris Leonard of Armor Mechanical!

Table introductions were made at Table #7 by AAA Minneapolis who told us what they wanted to be when they grew up, and how it compared to what they actually became.

Our Craft Talk Speaker, introduced by Chuck Shreffler of Shreffler Law, PLLC, was Richard Junghans, Director of Leasing and Fleet Sales at Lupient Automotive Group, who gave his first Craft Talk today!
