People who know me describe me as ambitious, energetic and inspiring. My life is driven by passion for my wife and son – the look and feel of muscle cars – the smell of the drag strip – pretty much anything 80’s – and being a student and a teacher in the car business. How can I help you?
I am a true motivator and have the natural talent to energize those around me. My passion and enthusiasm are intrinsic and delivered it with the sole purpose to inspire others. Most of the time, I am viewed as the “go to guy” and seen as an expert in many areas. I find myself highly respected for my well-rounded knowledge of the auto industry, but I am best known for being the guy who leads, empowers and develops his people.
Instinctively, I often raise the spirits of other people by putting aside what I’m doing and giving my team member my undivided attention. With an eye for raw talent, I use this natural born gift to differentiate people by focusing on their strengths.
With a desire to learn and understand the ever-changing automotive industry, I keep the book of knowledge open. I gather all kinds of innovative and cutting edge data, then keep it at my fingertips in order to ensure my organization stays competitive in the market place.
Although bold and direct when I speak, those around me know they can trust what I am saying. You can count on my sincerity while engaging with others. I believe it's important to make time to meet and connect with my team, and build a platform to cultivate mutual trust and respect – two values, of which, I will not compromise. During my daily mode of operation, I consistently leverage these values by walking the talk and delivering quantifiable results.
Keeping it real, you can expect me to entertain with a quick wit and a great sense of humor. I believe laughter is the best therapy and in business, I believe in providing a car buying experience that is extraordinarily pleasant and positively memorable.

Using Google Voice to protect the privacy of my staff...

Posted on September 7, 2013 at 3:44pm 0 Comments

For some time now I have dabbled with texting customers who requested information online and although the response has always been great I have had my concerns about having my cell phone number and the numbers of my staff being so available and some what unprotected. I avidly follow the work of awesome car folks like Elise Kephart, Robert Weisman and BDC trainer Sean Bradley and I agree with the value of texting in addition to phone calls and emails because it does allow our customer to…

Whats the ROI of a great attitude? How do you measure the ROI of a culture in which #positive is a constant and not an afterthought? When focused on spreadsheets and reports, where does an enthusiastic and encouraging enviroment fit it to the analysis?
