My Journey to Austin -

I grew up in Zion, Illinois, located just north of Chicago. As a child, I enjoyed spending time with my family, fishing, learning construction trades and playing multiple sports. I attended Western Illinois University before beginning my automotive career in the fall of 1992. Fortunately, on my first day when I opened my auto detailing business, I met my future wife Valerie, when her mother -- the top salesperson at the dealership -- introduced us. We were married in 1994.

In 1998 we moved to Hilton Head, South Carolina and I began selling Pontiac, Buick, GMC and BMW vehicles. During the next 15 years in Hilton Head I was promoted to Finance Manager, Sales Manager and in 2004 became a General Manager for what became award winning dealerships. 

In January of 2013, we moved to Charlotte, North Carolina and I became the Retail Operations Manager at Hendrick BMW. In the fall of 2013, I became the General Manager at Charlotte's new Hendrick BMW Northlake location, helping continue Hendrick BMW's record-breaking tradition of winning the top dealership award 12 years in a row. In the Spring of 2015, I became the General Manager of Rick Hendrick BMW, MINI and Volvo in Charleston, South Carolina, winning BMW's top dealership award once again in 2015.

 

In December 2015 the Hendrick Automotive Group started their expansion in Austin, Texas and my wife and I headed west to Texas. I became the General Manager for Audi South Austin once the dealership changed ownership. In the first year as a Hendrick owned dealership, we were one of only three Audi dealerships in Texas to win the Audi Magna Society Award for 2016. We have now been awarded the Audi Magna Society Award for three consecutive years with adding 2017 and now 2018 as well.

My wife and I look forward to being a part of the Austin and the Hill Country community as we continue to grow the Hendrick family of dealerships here in Texas.

If I can be of assistance to you with any of your sales or service needs please feel free to reach out to me directly.
