If you follow us on social media, you might have seen our newest addition to the family with our weekly Whipple Whips! Well, the chatter of this new member has spiked the interest in wanting to know the man that inspired Whipple Whips, Josh Whipple! Josh wanted to give our customers a chance at additional savings on select BRAND NEW vehicles each week. Nick Appleget, a Graphic Designer at McGrath enjoys creating cartoon characters and animation and with Josh’s final approval, we had our newest addition. Josh Whipple is the New Car Sales Director at McGrath Hyundai and Volkswagen of Dubuque, so feel free to drop by and see him anytime. You can catch his new vehicle spotlights, “Whipple Whips” by following the Facebook pages of these stores.
Let’s get to know a little more about the big man himself! Josh is very familiar with Dubuque as he was born in Moline, Illinois and currently lives in Dubuque with his girlfriend, Leah. They have an amazing son together named Parker Anthony and their two dogs, Mia and Creed. Mia is half Husky and half German Shepard and Creed is all is a purebred German Shepard! Anyone thinking we need to add a dog to his cartoon character?!?! Leah and Josh met while working together at Planet Fitness and you can still catch Josh working out every morning before work to get his blood flowing! Share the motivation buddy!
Insider tip: if you ever want to get Josh off task, just bring up sports! While Josh may not look like a super sporty or athletic guy, his interests and hobbies involve anything sports related. In fact, he is quite talented at certain sports and especially likes basketball and football.
Josh admires his mother and father because he truly understands the sacrifices they had to make for him when he was little. He knows that raising him was no easy task and he wouldn’t be where he is today, if it wasn’t for them. Mr. Whipple’s personal motto is, “do something today that your future self will thank you for!” When Whipple looks to the future, he envisions traveling the world more as he has only been out of the country once.
Josh’s goal at McGrath, is to one day become Trevor Arnold, General Sales Manager!
