I have utilized Jim to promote our chain of eight automotive and light
truck repair centers for 12 years and have always found Jim to have
the unique ability and personality that made our commercials honest
and believable. Jim took the time to learn about every aspect of our
business (he would visit every new location and spend time with the
staff before he would talk about them on the radio) and learned our
history and abilities. Jim’s knowledge of our business was our best
asset when he developed his own distinctive ad copy for our
commercials; in my opinion, the way it should be!  I have utilized
other talents in the past and the commercials always came across as
a cold and calculated script (and most of the time missing the mark).
Jim has a way of making everybody believe what
he is telling them because it comes from the heart
and not just the script.

I was first introduced to Jim Mantel nine years ago, when he called
to offer his assistance in the promotion of my First Annual Rally for
Troops in downtown Cleveland Ohio. During the past nine years,
Jim has volunteered his time in agreeing to be the Master of
Ceremonies for each and every Rally for Troops, Firefighters
Memorial Ride, Cops Ride and Never Forget 9/11 Ceremonies. His
support has been invaluable in making all the above events
extremely successful and his personal involvement has resulted in
our ability to raise in excess of $400,000, which has been donated
to various charities supporting our military, police and firefighters.
Jim's popularity as the "number one country radio personality" in
North East Ohio, obviously was critical in maintaining a high level of
professionalism for all of the above mentioned events.
I would strongly endorse Jim Mantel as an exceptional father,
husband, radio personality, supporter of our
military/police/firefighters and a "difference maker" in
any community where he decides to call home.

Jim Mantel is a wonderful man, he would go out of his way to help
our fund in many ways. He would take time out of his busy
schedule to advertise and attend an event. He would help out in
any way he could think of and believe me he can think. Jim Mantel
is not only a supporter of our fund, but he is an exceptional friend.
He is a big reason why we are able to provide two $10,000
scholarships annaully. He is and always will be a
huge supporter of law enforcement
