    General Manager
    8437638403

    I grew up in New Jersey along the beautiful "Jersey Shore".  My childhood involved all sports, boating, and hanging out with family and friends.  My father and uncles worked their entire careers in the automotive business in the New York/New Jersey area. 

    After graduating Rutgers University in 1985, I accepted a position with another vehicle manufacturer.  I worked two years in their Los Angeles office before being transferred back to their New Jersey office.  I worked several years in the New Jersey office often promoted through the ranks.  I left the organization as East Regional Sales and Marketing Manager which represented Maine to Florida and 50% of the National Sales volume.  In the fall of 1999, I was offered an opportunity to join BMW of North America as a Field Market Manager responsible for North Carolina and South Carolina.  My wife, Donna, and I jumped at the opportunity to move our family south with our two young daughters, Nicole and Jennifer.  We settled in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina.

    During my tenure with the manufacturers, I was able to observe and learn from many large dealer groups throughout the country.  The one automotive retailer I admired the most was Hendrick Automotive Group.  I was impressed with their focus on family, teamwork, culture, customer service, and commitment to winning.

    In December, 2006, I became General Sales Manager at Rick Hendrick BMW in Charleston, SC.  During my tenure, Rick Hendrick BMW showed consistent growth and won the coveted BMW Center of Excellence award 3 years in a row.  In December 2013, I transitioned to Hendrick BMW Northlake in Charlotte, NC as the Retail Operations Manager.  I was proud to be part of the Hendrick BMW Team in Charlotte that had won the BMW Center of Excellence Award every year since 2004!  In April 2015, I transferred back to Rick Hendrick Imports BMW- MINI-Volvo in Charleston as the Retail Operations Manager.  In December 2015, I was promoted to General Manager. 

    I am excited and proud to announce Rick Hendrick BMW has been awarded the BMW Center of Excellence Award for 2016 and 2017! 

    Our entire team looks forward to assisting you with your automotive sales and service needs.
