SCCC members tell their stories: Aktive Motors Inc



This is the story about Christian Skovbjerg and his company Aktive Motors.

My exiting career in automotive training started many years ago in Sweden and I have gained an immense amount of knowledge and experience by working with companies such as SAAB and other European manufacturers in three continents. The experiences gained stem for a number of opportunities and journeys whilst for working for SAAB in Trollhättan, Sweden, as well as for General Motors of Canada and joining the team at SAAB & Porsche Import Division at the SAAB Regional Far East Office in Singapore. With the business knowledge and values gained and expanded by my global work experiences, Aktive Motors was started in 2007 with a dream and a pledge of being an honest automotive service and sales organization that would reflect a true Scandinavian philosophy. The mission statement highlights the importance of delivering genuine and the upmost level of customer service to all Aktive Motor clients.

The company offers a high level of dedication to the SAAB Organization; it is a bit of Sweden away from home. Aktive Motors arranged the GTA SAAB Rally when the CEO of Spyker Cars, Mr. Muller, purchased SAAB Automobile AB from GM. A demonstration was held at the GM head office in Oshawa to encourage the company to sell SAAB to Spyker Cars. The rally was broadcasted in the local Toronto news media as well as online on YouTube and other SAAB web media for the world to see. Aktive Motors also hosted an awareness meeting in Toronto concerning the survival of the SAAB brand. Over 120 supporters as far as Ottawa dedicated their time and commitment to the meeting. This showed their support for the SAAB brand and what Aktive Motors stands for. A video was published on YouTube, which was ranked the second most globally viewed SAAB awareness meeting video.

Looking back we have accomplished many things that bring us to our business status today. Our clients come from as far as Victoria in the West to St John’s in the East, as well as from south of the border. My goal of making Aktive Motors the biggest name for SAAB in Canada is reaching its potential. We strive to be the best and it is with great pleasure that I can offer a complete platform that will embrace all of our patrons’ service and sales needs. I want to offer a heartfelt thank you to all of our clients, for their support and trust in not only myself but also in the staff at Aktive Motor, we could not have done this without you. I welcome you to call Aktive Motors and our staff will be ready to assist in any of your driving needs.

Thank you for your interest in my story.
