  • Bentley
    Chief Dog

    Hi, my name is Bentley and I am the "Chief Dog" at 802 Honda.  I don't take the title too seriously so all canines are welcome here.  Australian Shepherds are notoriously quirky and I am no exception although I prefer to think of myself as a unique individual.   I am extremely friendly so please come and pet me.  Warning, I can't seem to stop myself from kissing just about everyone I meet.  I am always hungry and may seem like I want your donut, but I am on a diet so please don't feed me.

    I want to meet you all!

    Bentley's Bio:

    Bentley lives in the Champlain Islands with his people, the Birminghams.  He is a rescue dog from Aussie Rescue and is four years old.  He is truly one of the friendliest dogs around and seems to love every man, woman, child, cat, dog and you name it.  When Bentley is not working his favorite place is Niquette Bay State Park running the trails.

  • Eric Bashaw
    Sales Manager
    (802) 391-3461

    Eric Bashaw is a father of two who has been married to his wife for 19 years, while working at 802 Honda for 24. He loves to play sports, especially baseball, so understandably his favorite movie is Jerry Maguire. Eric's favorite song is Piano Man, but the best concert he's ever been to was AC/DC. His first job was as a paper boy, but now Eric loves selling cars because of "the quality of the car, great staff and many years of great customers!"

  • Jon Cassel
    Sales Manager

  • Shane Sheeran
    Finance Manager
    (802) 391-3465

    Shane grew up in Sydney, Australia, but has been coming to the US since 1999. Besides living in Vermont and Australia, he has lived in Colorado, London, and Vancouver. One of the things he misses most about Sydney is his favorite beer, Tooheys Extra Dry, which is not available in the US. He loves a nice steak from J. Morgan's Steakhouse in Montpelier, VT. He taught snowboarding for 10 years in Vail and it is still one of his favorite sports. Shane is married and has two little girls, Bridget and Ruby.

  • Melody Lacroix
    Sales & Leasing Consultant
    (802)391-3455

    If Melody were a car, she says she'd be the Honda CRV because it is simple, loyal and hardworking, but also lots of fun to drive! If you can guess, that's also the car she owns. Melody has a granddaughter named Hailey, also known as Bugaboo Brickey (the star of her life), and she has a cat named Max and a dog named Lucy. She has lots of gardens and loves flowers, and her favorite Vermont destination is her home. Why does Melody love working at 802 Honda? "By far the thing I love most about this dealership is our customers. We have some of the best people that come here. And what's really cool, lots of them bring their really cool dogs with them! 802 Honda has gone to the dogs!"

  • Jesse Bennett
    Sales & Leasing Consultant
    (802)391-3463

He enjoys hiking, riding his mountain bike, and spending time at the beach with the kids. His favorite meal is mashed potatoes, pork chops and corn on the cob.

    I am a native of Vermont and a local graduate of Montpelier High School. I have been a salesperson at the dealership here for 15 years. Living here all my life in Vermont and having been very active in sports over the past years have enabled me to interact with many different communities around the state to help in better understanding of their automotive needs.

    I invite you to come in to see me to show you what we have to offer at 802 Honda. It is a great place to do business with a very strong family atmosphere. I am very confident you will enjoy your experience.

  • Nikola Banovich
    Sales and Leasing Consultant
    (802)391-3452

    Nikola is our newest Sales Consultant here at 802 Honda! He grew up in the deserts of Arizona and moved here to Vermont just over four years ago. Although the weather change took some getting used to, Nikola is adamant that he'd now take -40 degrees over 120 degrees any day. He loves being surrounded by all the green and outdoor adventures that Vermont has to offer and has fully embraced his new home. On his days off he can usually be found kayaking on the river or lake hoping to pull in anything that bites on his line. Nikola also has a girlfriend and black lab mix puppy named Sirius that love to welcome him home after a long day at work!
