  • Terry Kruse
    Lease Manager
    313-387-7321

    A graduate of The University of Detroit Jesuit High School ('77) and the University of Michigan ('82), Terry began an unexpected career in the car business in 1988, quickly specializing in the then-new concept of short term leasing. Hired by Pat Milliken Ford in 1991 with the assignment to help create and build a lease portfolio for the dealership, it took just a few short years before the sales team at Pat Milliken had one of the largest such portfolios in the nation; a status still enjoyed to present day.  In between busily raising seven children with his wife Karen, Terry has served as a precinct delegate in Sterling Heights, held a parish council seat at his church and managed to earn a third degree black belt in Choi Kwang-Do. He also competes in U.S Masters swimming and Olympic distance triathlons. Terry and his family enjoy camping in northern Michigan as well as traveling south to Florida's beaches (although not as often as his daughters would like.)
