Tahir Alyamany is the general manager of Billion Auto in Clinton. Find out more about him in this week’s edition of Meet Your Neighbor.
When you became the general manager of Billion Auto in the summer where did you move from?
Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
How does living in Fulton, Illinois compare to Sioux Falls?
It’s been great. I love the town, love the people, and I love my team here.
What is your favorite thing about the Mississippi River area?
I came in July so there was plenty of good weather. I’m an outside guy anyway so I like to spend time outside on the river.
Do you have any unique hobbies?
I like fast cars, I snowboard, and I like to live a healthy lifestyle so I work out a lot. I CrossFit and bike ride in the summertime. I love to travel.
What is your favorite place you have traveled to?
I went to Singapore four years ago. I was in Aruba in December and I am planning on going back again next December. It’s a good time to get out of the cold and it’s perfect weather that time of the year there.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
Seeing happy customers, that’s really the most rewarding thing. I want to make sure every customer that walks in the door and walks out is a customer for life.
