Christopher Tonkin helped form and found Straightline Motor Group in November of 2016.

The Goal -- To build a motor group and follow a vision of "Shifting The Experience"

Chris & Clark Hamilton, long time work ally and current CFO of Straightline, wanted to change the way car buying was starting to feel. Straightline's goal is to make car buying fun. To make it an upbeat, transparent, honest and fun experience from start to finish.

Chris is a proud graduate of the Automotive Business School of Canada, of Griffith University in Australia & of NADA's Dealer Candidate Academy. After working for a high performing family-ran dealership for almost a decade, then working for Auto Canada and a very successful Honda dealership, Straightline Motor Group was born and the hunt for dealership acquisitions began.

Since 2016, Straightline has grown to six operations including Straightline Dodge, Straightline KIA, Autobahn Automotive, Straightline KIA Medicine Hat, Straightline Volkswagen & NAPA Auto Pro. The group is spread across Alberta, with Chris Tonkin sitting as President & Dealer Principal of the operations.

Straightline has a goal of growing to 10 operations in 10 years and is right on track ! We attributes this to an outstanding team of leaders, partnering with progressive and successful brands, building an outstanding culture and embracing the "Shifting The Experience" way of operating our group.
