Brian Burnett
General Manager

Brian was born raised in Enid, Oklahoma. His father was a Master Technician for 42 years and had the pleasure of working for the Tynan's Organization for 37 of those years. Working for a Family Owned and Operate Business that truly cares about its employees and customers has been a true pleasure for the past 23 years.

Markus Kamm
Director Of Sales

Having been born and raised in Germany until the age of 15, his father owned a SEAT dealership (a Spanish subsidiary of Volkswagen) and he spent his youth detailing cars and helping with oil changes and tire rotations. On the sales side of the business for the past 18 years and at Tynan's for more than half of those, there isn't a place he'd rather be than our family-owned and operated operation that cares about its customers like they were a part of the family. In his spare time, Markus enjoys running, playing the drums, going to concerts and spending lots of time with his wife and two sons (who are shaping up to be car enthusiasts as well!) 

John Tynan
Volkswagen Sales Manager

Robert Glandon
Used Car Manager

Robert has been in the automobile business for the past 31 years. He moved to Colorado in April of 1999 with his wife, Tammy, and their three children, Jessica, Megan and Bobby. Tammy and Robert are celebrating their 31st wedding anniversary on June 27th (congratulations!!) When he's not at work, he enjoys spending time playing golf and going on long walks with Tammy and their bull mastiff, Bojo (who is our store mascot!) Robert also enjoys playing with his 2-year old Grandson, JJ, every chance he gets. We're lucky to him as our used car manager!



Ben Pavlovich
Internet Dept Manager

After spending 3 years selling VW's and becoming the #1 volume Volkswagen salesperson in Colorado, Ben was promoted to run the internet department and has loved it ever since. In his free time, he enjoys exploring Colorado and dreaming of one day owning a Golf R. A big believer in standing up for what's right, Ben supports Pluto as a planet, chocolate as a food group, and Top Gear as educational television. 

Hayes Burton
Sales Consultant

Hayes is a Colorado native - born at Fitzsimmons (now Anschutz) just up the street! He has been with Tynan's since 2014, and has worked for both our Nissan and Volkswagen stores. When not at work, he is a songwriter and an animal lover. His favorite Volkswagen is the 2018 Tiguan, but he's pretty sure next year's Arteon will easily climb to the top of that list!

Lirim Avdili
Sales Consultant

Growing up in a Volkswagen admiring family, it was in the DNA to be part of the VW family. With the experience that Lirim has gained as a prior business owner and the knowledge about the engineering and driving experience of Volkswagen that was gained as a Hill Climb Driver helps him deliver the exiting experience to every Volkswagen customer. When he is not at the dealership helping customer enjoy that VW experience he is up in the beautiful Rockies enjoying the outdoor with his friends and family.

Chase Laub
Sales Consultant

Chase was born into the car business. His parents met in the industry (Dad was a GM of a dealership and Mom was a banker). So, it was only a matter of time before he joined the "family business". Chase has always been a huge fan of German engineering and wouldn't drive anything else. When he is not at work, you can find him driving his VW through the mountains.

Kyle Durigan
Lease Maturity Manager

Kyle is a former photographer who started his career in automotive sales with the help of a Playstation controller and a copy of Need For Speed. Since that point he has had the opportunity to drive exotic super cars and dive in deep into German engineering. Though he is seen as a "cat guy", he still finds time for his wife and adventuring in the great outdoors.

Edwin Barton
Sales Consultant

Edwin is originally from Cookeville, Tennessee with a short stint as an Army brat living throughout the USA. He move to Denver in 2004 and lives downtown by City Park with his two dogs, Kira and Ollie. They are his best friends and companions for sure. Give him a call for an informative and pressure-free experience when you're in the market for your next vehicle!

Andrew Miller
Sales Consultant

Fueled by pizza, root beer, and 80's cartoons, Andrew comes from four generations of automotive people. Surrounded by blue collar technicians and engineers, he's the first of the family to branch into sales with a passion for understanding, a down to earth attitude, and a goal to build a business and a community. Favourite Volkswagen is the 2018 Beetle Coupe (bottle green color).

This is the 7th state she's lived in over the last few years (including New York, Washington and California) and doesn't plan on stopping here. Music is her passion; you can often find her upstairs singing while working (wait.. that's not a feral cat up there???) or tucked away at home writing songs.
