  • JP Lammers
    General Manager

    Hi, my name is JP Lammers; General Manager of Germain of Ann Arbor. Raised in Ann Arbor, I graduated from Pioneer High School of Ann Arbor and Eastern Michigan University. I started my career in the management and technology consulting industry spending 5 years in this field. Ten years ago I chose to move into the automotive industry.

    Providing a quality customer experience is my number one priority. Being that Ann Arbor is such a small community, everyone knows everyone, and word of mouth is an essential element in our business. By providing a quality experience each and every time we can take advantage of the closeness of our community as another marketing tool.

    Away from the dealership I enjoy athletics and playing with my three children.  I hope you will allow us the opportunity to earn your business.

    Hello, I'm Tommy Cockfield Used Car Manager for Audi of Ann Arbor. Having started in the auto industry in 2006 I moved to Germain in 2015. I am Audi and Volkswagen Certified which allows me the knowledge I need to succeed in my position. I strive to make sure our pre-owned inventory has been reconditioned with o safety issues as we do not want our customers to have to return for any concerns. Being from Pinckney MI I love all the surrounding lakes. My earlier career found me in Ann Arbor working in our family business then I transitioned to the auto industry. My free time is spent outdoors playing sports as well as watching the Detroit Lions. When I head out of Michigan for vacation, it's St Pete Beach that I enjoy going to. I enjoy the nice beaches, hotels, clear ocean and it's hot. I look forward to continuing to provide the best pre-owned inventory for our guests.

    I have been in the performance and luxury automobile business since the early 90's, and an Audi Certified Brand Specialist at Audi of Ann Arbor starting in 2016. My previous brand experience includes Ferrari, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Porsche, BMW, and Mercedes- Benz. During my automotive career, I have always strived to maintain the highest level of customer satisfaction. As a result, I have enjoyed over the years a large repeat customer base. Race cars are my passion, Formula 1, World Endurance, but more specifically most any open wheel single seater and sports racing cars from the 60's - 90's. I have been involved in amateur racing since the 70's, and currently restoring a car for vintage racing. My other interests include mountain biking, skiing, and home renovations. I have come to appreciate the Audi history, styling, engineering, and technology. I encourage you to experience driving one of Germany's oldest and technically advanced range of cars and SUV's.

  • Mike Davis
    Service Manager
    734.761.3200

    Mike Davis has been at the Germain Ann Arbor Audi location since June, 1996, after a short career that included a stint as a car salesman in Rochester Hills. When Davis was 15, his father worked at Fred Lavery Porsche Audi in Birmingham, and Mike washed cars there for $1.50 each. These days he has personally owned more than 25 cars. "VWs are the coolest cars to drive," he says, and speaks of his 2013 Jetta GLI as an example. He's had Audis, and when he was young he had a few Jeeps. His first car, says the Michigan native, was a 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle that he restored with his father, and he remains sentimental about it. 

    Davis lives near Ann Arbor, although he has travelled in the U.S. for Porsche Audi and VW ride and drive training events. He attends special events for customers at the dealerships, and has been a member of Volkswagen and Audi owners' clubs.

    My name is Desirae Iwanicki, Service Advisor for Audi of Ann Arbor. Joining the Germain team in 2017 my automotive career began in 2013 bringing with me many years of customer service experience. My goal when it comes to servicing our guests is simple, I aim to exceed their expectations. Born and raised in Ann Arbor I, of course, am a Wolverines fan. I graduated from Pioneer High and Washtenaw Community College. My husband and I have one daughter and in my free time, I enjoy camping and spending time with my friends and family. I'm not sure I'd want to be a superhero but I do love Captain America and Wolverine (not sure if this one has anything to do with Ann Arbor). My favorite vacation escape is any campground with a beautiful lake, I enjoy relaxing and listening to my favorite tunes "This is Gospel and Famous Last Words".

  • Joseph Gruss
    Service Advisor
    734.761.3200 Ext 308

    Hi, I'm Joseph Gruss, I joined the Germain team in 2016. My philosophy is one to stick by, "Perception is the reality - make each experience the best possible". I have been in the industry since 2012, from a porter and shuttle driver to Service Advisor. I was born and raised in Hell, Michigan and attended school right around the corner from home at Pinckney High. If I could choose any Audi brand vehicle it would be the RS7 "The car explains itself", makes sense why Batman would be the superhero of choice for me.
