Meet the new General Manager of McGrath Chevrolet of Dubuque, Josh Orthel! Josh has spent his entire career after college in the automotive industry, totaling fourteen years. Seven of those years have been spent with the McGrath Family of Dealerships. Josh grew up with his family owning a sporting goods business and enjoyed the face to face interaction he had with people. His other true passion are cars and knew that putting these two passions together was exactly what he wanted to do.
Although Josh is relatively new to the Dubuque area, he grew up visiting Dubuque and couldn’t get enough of the bluffs with their spectacular views. His favorite spot would be on the bluffs that overlook the Mississippi River. Josh is from Ventura, Iowa and currently working on moving to Dubuque with his two cats, Bailey and Sammy, and dog Ruger. When josh isn’t working you can catch him out in his favorite “vehicle” his Alumnacraft walleye fishing boat as his free time is filled with fishing and hunting. He is excited to be a part of Dubuque, as he sees a community that is thriving and has so much to offer its community members.
As the General Sales Manager, his goal is to help people achieve goals they never thought were possible. Whether it is a customer looking for a car or helping an employee strive in their position, Josh wants to exceed expectations. For Josh it is not about exceeding expectations because he has to, but because he chooses to do so with passion and integrity!
