Lloyd’s Ownership & Management

After 31 Years Lloyds Automotive has New Ownership, but a Very Familiar Face!

After 31 years as the owner of Lloyds Automotive, on June 1st, 2021 Dan Burns handed the steering wheel of Lloyds to his long time General Manager, Nick Stoffel.  Nick went to work for Dan at the age of 15 at Highland Park Amoco during his high school years.  After graduating from Highland Park High School in 1995, Nick entered & served in the U.S. Marines.  After completing tour of duty with the U.S. Marines, Nick completed his automotive technician training at the Dunwoody Institute of Technology and rejoined Dan at Lloyds Automotive in St. Paul.  In 2005, Nick became the general manager of Lloyds Automotive, and remained in that position until purchasing the business. Nick has a simple philosophy, “If it’s not broken, don’t fix it…..our customers will experience the same level of professional service as they have since Dan Burns purchased Lloyds Automotive in 1990.  Dan treated me like a son, taught me about this business, and I will continue to operate Lloyds as if he was still here everyday.”
