THE MAKING OF AN ICONIC FIGURE     
Written By Jan Mergel

Over the last thirty-years of my agency business none of my clients created a more lasting and rewarding experience than Serramonte Ford and it's distinctively lovable owner Mr. Frank Verducci. 

It was my honor and privilage to work with Frank for over fifteen incredible, fun-loving years.  He enthusiastically embraced a wide range of caricatures that the public loved.  Whether playing the role of a gambler like 'Maverick', a 'Magic Genie in a bottle', 'Indiana Jones in the Temple of Savings' or his own version of the 'Energizer Bunny', Frank was alway up to the challenge.  He embraced with enthusiasm our creative direction and unique promotional events.

His self-effacing style and mastery of comedy created top of mind television commercials that the public responed to with love and patronage.  As a result, Serramonte Ford became the number one Ford dealership in sales for  all of Northern California.
