Tom Barrett
Dealer Owner

Born and raised in Port Huron. My grandfather was John Cawood which is why the dealership is called Cawood. I attended Garfield and Port Huron High School and then attended the University of Michigan.
"I am a big Michigan fan."

    I got my first pay from Cawood in 1954 and still consider myself that young fellow. My "Gramps" told me to take good care of the customers because if you don't he or she has a lot of other choices. We have always tried to do exactly that! Thank you to our many customers who have made it possible for Cawood to be here for 100 years.



Ted Barrett
General Manager/General Sales Manager

I grew up in Ann Arbor and attended Father Gabriel Richard High School.  I moved to Port Huron in 2002 after graduating Michigan State University.  I really enjoy interacting with all of our customers.  I am married with two boys and when I am not at work you will find us at one of the many beaches or playgrounds in the area.  I really enjoy attending Michigan State football games and was able to attend the 2014 Rose Bowl.  I take pride in the tradition Cawood has in the community of serving our customers.  If you ever have any questions or comments feel free to contact me directly.  Thank you again for the support.

Jeremy Dodder
New & Used Sales Consultant

I have been selling cars since 2010, all while here at Cawood Honda. I am referred to as the "Honda Guru" by my peers as I have gained an extensive knowledge of the Honda product and its technology.

Before selling cars, I worked as a customer service manager at a large local grocery chain, where I learned to listen to the customers' needs and wants and did my best to ensure both were met!

In my short time here Honda has bestowed on me an award that only is given out to 33 of its 15,000 sales people nationwide for best customer satisfaction. I have won this award 2 years now in a row!

I live right here in Port Huron with my amazing wife and 3 adorable children. I enjoy spending all of my time with them when not here at Cawood.

I can't wait to meet you, and show you how you should be treated when you buy your next vehicle!
