Hello, my name is Ralph Ludden and I have been at Schmelz since April 2009. I love meeting new people and my favorite thing to hear is that my customer loves their new car. Cars are too expensive to drive something you do not love. I live three minutes from the dealership and I have the world's greatest commute. I married my wife Sue in October 1996 and we now have two girls who both want Beetles when they turn 16. When I am not working I enjoying spending time with my family and I am a golf nut.
Tim "T.K." Kullman has been with Schmelz Countryside for over 14 years. Tim has extensive experience with Volkswagen ( over 30 years ) and also Saab. Whenever someone on the staff has a question they look to Tim!
I was born in Minneapolis in 1989 and grew up in Plymouth, MN. I attended the University of Minnesota, where I graduated in the Spring of 2012 with a Bachelors in Psychology and a minor in Spanish. My family has been in sales for my entire life and then some. I always knew that it was something I wanted to do as well. Aside from a sales consultant, I am a musician, traveler, charades enthusiast, and foodie. I stand firmly behind the Volkswagen name and am the proud owner of a 2013 Jetta TDI. I enjoy working at Schmelz Countryside Volkswagen and am happy to be a part of the team!
My name is Greg O?Neill I have been in the automotive business since I joined the Schmelz Countryside Team in 2008. I am very proud to be a part of the oldest family owned dealership in Minnesota. We have a commitment of excellence from the whole team. That means employees in all departments, sales, finance, parts and service, all working as a team to make the buying and ownership experience second to none. It is a great environment to work in and this is passed on to the customer, which is one of the main reasons a large portion of our business is repeat and referral. If you are in the market for a new or pre-owned vehicle come in and see us, no dealership has a better inventory of both new and used. You will have a great experience, and if you have previously purchased from us, stop in for a visit. We always love to see old friends. I love working here and I'm focused on not just selling you a car but developing a mutually beneficial relationship where you always feel comfortable with us handling all your automotive needs.

My name is Peter Wienke, and I have been with Schmelz Countryside for the last 4 years. I began selling Genuine Volkswagen Parts in June of 1999 and have loved the brand ever since because of the energy and enthusiasm that it delivers. When not at the dealership I enjoy spending time with my wife and kids, and playing music with a few friends in the local music scene. I believe that Schmelz Countryside is the perfect place for all your automotive needs.....World Class Service in a Family Friendly Environment.
