I was born and raised in Brainerd, Minnesota. I graduated from Brainerd High school. My next adventure brought me to Moorhead, Minnesota where I attended Concordia College. I played football for the Cobbers. After College I joined the Muscatell Organization and I have been with them ever since. My wife, Anna, and I have two boys Mason and Bennett and a daughter Molly. We have enjoyed the Hawley community and look forward to raising our children here. I look forward to do business with you and your family!

Mark Burns
Sales and Fleet Professional

I started selling cars full time in 1984. It has been quite the experience. When you sell for over 30 years, you get to hear some great stories. Elizabeth and I have two children, Addie and Riley. Both we are excited to say are adding to our family. I would like to say thank you to all of my past and present customers. Come in and sit down with me anytime. Whether you're ready to make a vehicle purchase or just want to come by and tell me a story, you're always welcome.

Olee McDonald

My wife, Paula, and I moved back to Hawley in 1996. We raised our boys, Hunter and Levi, here in Hawley and have really enjoyed the community. I have been with the Ward Muscatell Automotive Group for over 20 years. One of the aspects I enjoy most about my job is visiting with my customers and helping them make a sound buying decision. I pride myself on providing the very best customer service experience I can and your utmost satisfaction is what is most important to me.

I started working for Don Burns in 1980. While a lot of things have changed over the years, customer service has not! I make it my business to help in any way I can. While my wife, Debra, and I spent 33 years on lake 15, we now reside in Barnesville. It has been quite a change but sure is nice to be with friends and family. If you have been a customer of mine for 30 years or if you are new to us, WELCOME! I am here to serve you and your family.
