I bring a unique set of skills and talent for team building, goal setting, and achievement. I am highly ambitious and I am constantly seeking challenges in business and life. I started selling furniture at Haverty’s attaining top 20 in the Southeast at 18 years of age while attending Florida Southern College. I became the youngest GM for Haverty’s and won the Chairman’s cup (also Youngest) in my first year. This was for managing store merchandise, personnel, advertising and bottom line. I enlisted in the US Army after graduating from Florida Southern with a BA in Business Administration. I served proudly and with distinction as a Paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne Division. I have attended numerous continuing education classes/seminars and constantly seek to update my business and life skills.
I moved to Atlanta after the service and started selling Honda automobiles in 1988 with Carey Paul Honda eventually rising to the GM position. I have worked in all departments in the dealership and have a vast working knowledge of everyone’s job allowing me both empathy and understanding for every team member. I have found success through training the right people for the right job and always leading them to the next level. I have had 3 porters move up to sales managers along with numerous sales people. I have learned patience and persistence goes along way with knowledge. I have increased sales in both New and CPO, Parts Sales, Service Gross and CP RO counts at every dealership while holding the GM position.
My most recent position is Headquarter Hyundai in Sanford Florida. We have enjoyed consistent sustainable growth in every department. The store has had all time sales records in Parts and Service with sales enjoying an all-time New Vehicle Sales Record for 2016. People, processes and developing future leaders are what I find most rewarding and challenging in my career.
I am married and have 3 beautiful children and 3 lovely granddaughters which are my greatest joy. I also enjoy golfing, fishing, and occasional sky diving when I am not at the dealership.
