Paul Murray
Dealer Principle
403-938-3636

Paul Murray got his start in the family business in the late 70's, early 80's, doing different part time jobs and summer jobs while putting himself through university. At that time the GM dealership in Brandon Manitoba was the only Murray store. Paul moved to Medicine Hat in 1992 to run the present Murray Chev Cadillac as the Dealer Principal, and in August 2016 he officially opened the Murray Chrysler Strathmore store! In 2018, Paul has now taken on a second store in Okotoks!


He is partners with his three brothers, Doug in Brandon, Dan in Winnipeg and Chris in Lethbridge. Paul prides himself in being very hands on as an active engaged dealer and his office can be found off the main showroom floor, so he is easily accessible to all customers and staff. He is also very proud to have his oldest daughter Logan, as part of the Management team here. All four of his daughters played university hockey just like their dad!

Logan Murray
Sales Manager
403-938-3636

Logan Murray is our Sales Manager and has been mentored by her dad, Paul Murray over the years.

"I am very proud to work for my Dad and be a part of our family's business. He has always taught me that it's the people that matter most, and I think that every member of our staff and every customer we have know that we truly care about them. It is my personal goal to have customers that are thrilled with their experience here, who are treated with respect and transparency from start to finish, and that feel a part of our family by the time they leave."

Logan loves hanging out with her 3 sisters, and her cat - whom you may see in the dealership from time to time, or on our Instagram feed!  She likes going to art museums, running, skiing and playing hockey. Logan was Alberta raised, and grew up playing hockey around the province.

She currently drives a Cherokee  and her dream vehicle is a Grand Cherokee Overland in pearl white; she is a huge Jeep fan!

Whether you are in the market for a vehicle or just want to come in for some coffee and popcorn, Logan invites everyone to visit us. She loves meeting members of the community in Okotoks and the surrounding area.
