After an honorable discharge from the Marine Corps, in 1999 he continued to complete a degree in Automotive Technology while working at a Honda dealership - ultimately becoming an ASC Certified & Honda Technician, Service Advisor, and Service Manager. His move into the variable side of the business was motivated by his passion to understand how things work, with a goal of managing a Dealership one day. His career progressed to the sales department as a Salesman, developed a BDC department, New Car Sales Manager, and Used Car Sales Director.
In 2016 Michael had the opportunity to work for vAuto as a Performance Consultant. His path would lead him back to the dealership where he would graduate from NADA and become a General Sales Manager. Michael prides himself in having experience in both sales and fixed operations, but most importantly mastering the merchandising, and marketing aspects of the automotive business.
