Cliff Spangler
General Manager
(888) 845-4263

    After attending the University of California, Los Angeles, and graduating with a degree in Sociology, a vacation to the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina changed Cliff Spangler's life. Cliff and his wife fell in love with the area and decided to raise a family in Charlotte, N.C.

    After moving east, Cliff joined Hendrick Automotive Group in 1998 as a sales associate at Hendrick Lexus on Independence Boulevard in Charlotte. A consistent top performer, Cliff achieved the 2003 Pinnacle Award from Hendrick Automotive Group for being the company's top sales associate of highline vehicles.

    The following year, Cliff was promoted to New Car Manager at Hendrick BMW, also in Charlotte. Cliff's department's sales increased and helped Hendrick BMW become the best-selling luxury brand in the greater Charlotte area. The dealership has since earned twelve consecutive BMW Center of Excellence awards and was named the number-one BMW dealership in the country in 2011, 2012, and 2013 based on sales, service and customer satisfaction.

    Cliff showed promise as a team leader and was promoted in 2012 to General Manager of Hendrick BMW Northlake located at the Hendrick Luxury Auto Mall at Northlake in Charlotte. After a successful start up at the Hendrick BMW Northlake location, Cliff was promoted to General Manager for Hendrick BMW & Hendrick MINI located on Independence blvd.

Cliff and his wife have a daughter. The family resides in Charlotte.

    I grew up in the automobile business; my grandfather was a General Motors dealer in western NC.  My grandfather, father, and uncle taught me the car business during summer breaks from college. I
Spent those summer breaks working in the parts department stocking inventory and delivering to wholesale accounts. I graduated University of South Carolina with BS degrees in Finance and Management in May 1992. I met my wife Krista in high school and we got married in 1996, and have two wonderful kids.

    I began my career as a Service Advisor at Raleigh Toyota. I then came to Hendrick BMW in April 1997 as the Service Manager.  Later one was promoted to Parts and Service Director of Hendrick BMW, Hendrick Acura, Hendrick Porsche and Land Rover Charlotte in 1999 - 2001. I am currently the Parts and Service Director for Northlake Auto Mall, Hendrick BMW/MINI, and Hendrick Motors of Charlotte.

    What I enjoy most about my career is the team of people I get to work with and their commitment to be the best in the retail automotive industry.  The culture of Hendrick Automotive Group is the finest in the industry and our team here makes that culture what it is today.  Working with a team that has strong values and a commitment to our customers is what makes this business enjoyable.  To know you are surrounded by a team of people that will always do what is right makes this a great place to have a career.

Executive Assistant

    I grew up in Marion, SC and moved to Wilmington, NC when I was 13. After graduating from UNCW in 1990, and living the beach lifestyle for a while, I decided to move to Charlotte with some friends to live and start our careers. 

    I found a job with a small Medical Software Company in Elizabeth and worked as the receptionist for 2 years.  A friend one day referred me to Hendrick BMW to interview for an executive assistant position that the General Manager was hiring for.  Fortunately for me, I got the job, and 21 years later I am still an executive assistant. However, now I am the Executive Assistant for our Market Area Vice President John Desmond.  I love my job and this company! 

    During those 21 years I managed to meet my husband Dan, a native of Charlotte, and we have 2 boys Jack and Smith.

    I was born and raised in a small rural town of South Hill, VA which is approximately 4hours from Charlotte, NC.  After attending Hargrave Military Academy for a majority of my high school period, I went to and graduated from Roanoke College in Salem, VA.  After graduation, I began a career in Digital Communications when the cell phone, internet and pager services industry were beginning their boom.  After managing a retail location for a few years, I was ready for a change, not only in career paths, but in location also.  I knew I wanted a "city-like" atmosphere, but still wanted to be able to get home to family within a few hours if needed.  This direction led me to Charlotte in 2001 where I met with 3-4 different Hendrick dealerships to begin my search for a new life.  I quickly knew that if I wanted to go into the automotive industry, I wanted to start with and be a part of the best team and brand…Hendrick BMW.  I got the job on the spot, went back to Roanoke, VA, packed my bags and returned only a few days later to begin my new adventure in a new city and new career.

    After being a part of the BMW team for only 1 and ½ years, I created a book of business that led me to become the Top Client Advisor within the dealership.  I thrive on creating long lasting relationships, my "treating the client as I would want to be treated"  attitude and tenacity has provided me the honor of maintaining my Top Client Advisor status ever since 2004!!  In addition, I have been the recipient of Hendrick Automotive Group's  Chairman's Club Award and Pinnacle Award which is given each year to the top Client Advisor within the Hendrick Organization 10 times.  While I consider this quite the accomplishment in my tenor here, I'm more proud of the fact that out of this past 10 year streak, I have retained the highest Customer Satisfaction Level from my clients which means, not only do I take pride in assisting my clients obtain the "Ultimate Driving Machine" but I do it with 100% satisfaction with every client I work with each and every time.  I have also been fortunate to be a part of a select group of BMW Client Advisors from around the country to garner the cherished Victory Lap Award for 7 consecutive years, which is BMWNA's top award given to the top advisors in the United States and have been able to travel to various parts of the world to celebrate this accolade.

    After just recently passing my 16th year anniversary with Hendrick BMW, I reflect on how proud I am to be a part of this amazing brand that continues to be the pinnacle of innovation and technology and a member of an amazing team with Hendrick BMW that takes great pride in assuring our guests receive the best vehicle on the road while being treated with the utmost respect they deserve in a welcoming environment.

    I was born in San Diego CA and raised in Connecticut, my parents were custom homebuilders and developers. As a result, I spent most of my free time playing with my dad's heavy equipment and hanging out in his garage watching his guys maintain his machines. This is where my love of cars began. The town I grew up in was famous for its car show, which me and my dad used to go to frequently. My first car was an old Camaro that we built and used to show at every car show up and down the coast. That first car felt like my first full time job because I spent every minute of my free time detailing the motor and interior and undercarriage.

    I quickly grew up and fell in love with BMW's. I have owned everything from an E30 to an I01 which has only affirmed my appreciation for "The Ultimate Driving Machine". I take a lot of pride in providing our customers with "Truly Exceptional" service. I understand the desire of our customers to own a brand new BMW, and even though there are several other competitive brands and great options out there, I know anyone we help will receive a world class experience when purchasing a BMW and joining the Hendrick BMW family.

    In my free time, I enjoy driving through the mountains and finding little towns off the Blue Ridge Parkway. I also own a motorcycle which I will take to the mountains. I am a bit of a foodie and enjoy finding new places in Charlotte to enjoy a good meal. Along with good food I also enjoy art and have decorated my home with art from local artists. Whether looking at a beautiful painting, eating an incredibly well prepared meal or driving a BMW, I appreciate the fact someone with a lot of passion took the time to create something truly fantastic, and I use that as the motivation to keep me moving in my professional life.

Jhoda Edquist
Pre-Owned Sales Manager
(888) 845-4263

    I was born at Presbyterian Hospital in downtown Charlotte and I'm proud to say I'm a native!  I was introduced to Hendrick BMW at a young age; my father purchased a new 5-Series in the early 80's and had a phenomenal experience each and every visit.  I learned to drive in his manual 5-Series and those are fond memories.  He still talks about his relationships with the employees of Hendrick BMW and I knew early on they did business the right way.

    I started at Hendrick BMW in the Certified Pre-Owned department in May of 2008 and instantly loved it. I watched as the sales and management team consistently went out of their way to exceed a client's expectations and I felt more comfortable than I ever had in my automobile career.  In April of 2010, I became a Financial Services Manager and my role was changed to complete the transactional paperwork for our clients.  I enjoyed that role - I got to meet many more clients than ever before and it is a fast paced job.  In September of 2012, I was pleased to have the opportunity to be the Sales Manager at Hendrick MINI.  It was a great fit for me since I was friends with the entire team already and MINI is such a fun, exciting brand!  I enjoyed my time at MINI, but in January 2015 I was pleased to accept the role of Sales Manager of the Certified Pre-Owned department at Hendrick BMW.

    I was born in 1992 in a small town near Boston Massachusetts to a small family with only one older brother. Soon after my birth, my family decided to move back to Medellin Colombia. There, I grew and integrated into that happy and joyful culture of the Colombian people. Surrounded by a much bigger family (25 uncles and aunts between my two parents), I not only learned their culture, but I also became fluent in reading, writing and speaking Spanish.


    Then, in 2002 my family decided to move back to the States in hope of a much greater future for me and my brother. I started the 5th grade at Greenway Park Elementary and moved on to McClintock Middle School where I would enjoy all my middle school years. As I became more integrated into this new and wonderful country, I developed a passion for music and sports, something I would carry on through my high school years. This passion led me to 5 years in the schools orchestra and 4 years of varsity soccer at East Mecklenburg High School and Sunvalley High School. As soon as I was able to, I started working at the age of 15. I started as a bagger at Food Lion and soon moved into a cashier, stocker, and finally frozen food supervisor.


    After I graduated high school, I got the great opportunity to start working for Hendrick BMW at the age of 18 as a lot porter. Meanwhile, I continued my studies and found myself very interested in the Law Enforcement field. I joined the Criminal Justice program at SPCC and received my Associates degree. I planted my roots in Charlotte N.C, bought my first house and had a beautiful daughter named Camila. My passion for cars continued to grow over those of Law enforcement and new opportunities opened at Hendrick BMW, I took on some more responsibilities and moved into the internet marketing sector of the store; ultimately leading me to an even greater opportunity as the assistant/inventory manager of the pre-owned department.

    I was born in Augusta, Georgia and I graduated from Thomson High school in 1984, and before leaving Augusta I met my wife, Kristi. We have been married 20 years.

    I started in the car business at Gerald Jones VW, Audi, Volvo, and Subaru in 1984 as a parts runner, car washer.  I was quickly promoted in 1985 as a Service Advisor and eventually promoted to Service Manager in 1995. In 1997 I moved to Hilton Head, SC to become the new Service Manager at Carolina Volvo and worked there for 8 years. In 2005 my family moved to Charlotte so I could take a position with University Volvo as their Assistant Service Manager. I then was hired as the Parts and Service director for Subaru of Concord. Eventually in February 2012 I was hired at Hendrick BMW as a Service Advisor and then was promoted to Assistant Service Manager in April 2014. Fairly quickly in December 2014 I was promoted to Service Manager.

    I have always wanted to work for a Hendrick store because of the reputation that Mr. Hendrick's stores have in the automotive industry. I love working here because the entire company is built on core values and everyone is treated as an equal. I like the fact the company encourages promoting from within. Out of my 30 years in the car business this is no question the best dealership I have ever been involved in.

    I grew up in a small town in New Jersey where we had plenty of land for me to learn to drive and work on cars at a very young age.  That is where my love for cars began.  After attending Kean University where I studied Business Management and Accounting, I worked in Retail Management while I spent all of my free time customizing my own car.  In 2001 while living in Miami I purchased my first BMW and that's when I was hooked on the Ultimate Driving Machine.

    In 2008 I moved to Charlotte and that decision led to the best career move I ever made by joining the team at Hendrick BMW.  I started working in the Parts Department and a few years later I was promoted to Parts Manager at Hendrick MINI.  In 2015 I once again received a promotion to come back to the BMW Team as Parts Manager.  It's truly a great feeling to come to work every day when your job is also what you love to do.

(888) 845-4263

    I grew up in Burlington, CT and after finishing high school, I moved to Poughkeepsie, NY to attend Marist College, where I received my B.A. with a double concentration in Digital Media / Graphic Design & Photography / Art History with a minor in Psychology. While attending school I was fortunate enough to have had an internship at Walt Disney World in Florida and The Gallery of Photography in Dublin, Ireland, where I not only learned valuable knowledge about my field of interest, but also about the work force that awaited me after graduation.

    In 2002, I graduated from Marist College, and moved to New York City to pursue a career in graphic design, and was able to intern at Conde Nast for a short time, and worked in the film industry as a PA. My time in the city was brief because the travel bug bit, and I was off to see the word for the next 2 years. During that time, I accumulated an array of job skills and talents taking on odd jobs here and there to support my travel. I soon realized it was time to enter back into the "real world", and to do so I decided to go back to school for another degree, this time in Web Design, which is what led me to Charlotte, NC.

    After earning my degree at the Art Institute of Charlotte in 2007 I became an Art Director for a small local company and was there for 6 years. After a year off to be a stay-at-home mom, I was fortunate enough to hear about an opening with Hendrick BMW as their in-house photographer. I started with Hendrick BMW in 2013. Over the years I took on more and more of a creative role not only at BMW but also our Hendrick MINI store. I also become more involved in the marketing side of things, and in December of 2016 I was offered the position as Digital Marketing & Media Manager for Hendrick BMW/MINI.

    My time here at Hendrick BMW has been an eye opening experience. I have finally found a place that is more than a job, it's a family where there is true respect for one another and a common goal of team work. I look forward to many more years!

    I grew up in nearby Hickory, NC. My grandmother and father were deeply involved in the world of racing throughout my childhood. That's right, I said my grandmother. My father purchased a golf cart for me when I was 8 years old so that I could assist with shuttling his team to different areas of the speedway. He would occasionally allow me use my gasoline powered E-Z-Go golf cart to assist with towing a race car to and from the garage. It was during those times that I developed my passion for anything and everything with an engine and wheels.

     After being president of DECA (a co-curricular business and marketing club) for 3 years during high school, I studied Marketing at Catawba Valley Community College. During college, I started my career in the automobile business by selling used cars at the local CarMax. After that, I relocated to Charleston, SC where I was a Product Specialist for a Mercedes-Benz dealer. Eventually, I decided that a quickly expanding city like Charlotte, NC was more my style so I moved here and immediately fell in love with everything the Queen City has to offer. Without hesitation, I accepted a position with Hendrick BMW as it was recommended to me as a great place to work by so many of my peers. This was when I learned why the dealerships of Hendrick Automotive Group were always considered the best by consumers and "the ones to beat" by the competing dealers. I became the first certified BMW Genius at our BMW Center and quickly recognized how much opportunity there was for me to grow and how many possibilities there were in my future with the company.

     I helped develop a team of extremely knowledgeable BMW Geniuses and grow the team's responsibilities within the BMW Center. Throughout this time, my love of marketing and business development began to shine through as I started taking on special event and experiential marketing responsibilities. I was then promoted to Experiential Marketing Manager and took on these responsibilities on as my primary focus. I am one extremely proud member of this incredible team at Hendrick BMW.

    Originally from Pittsburgh, but calling Charlotte home since 2001. I grew up and finished High school in the Huntersville area, then continued my education at the of University of North Carolina at Wilmington where I received a degree in Business Administration with a concentration in marketing.

     Following college, I found my way to Hendrick BMW as the youngest new car client advisor in 2011. I have consistently been one of our top performers at Hendrick BMW with outstanding customer satisfaction, volume, and attention to detail. I have had the fortune to hold many different roles within the sales department. I have been a client advisor, BMW M specialist, BMW i specialist, and I am currently our Retail Business Manager (RBM). As our first RBM I have been piloting a new experiential sales process for Hendrick and BMW deemed 'Future Retail'. This combines sales and finance to streamline the process, delivering our clients a more pleasurable experience unlike anything in the past.

     I have always had a passion for BMW, first introduced to the brand by my father who owned a 1995 BMW 5 series. I used to visit this very store when I was younger where I drooled over the dream of owning and working with BMW. My love for the Ultimate Driving Machine has only grown since then. I have owned an array of BMW models, which consist of a E46 325i, E39 528i, 2013 335i, 2014 435i, 2015 X5, 2016 M3 and 2017 X3.

     Family is one of the most important things in my life and I can't spend enough time with them. I recently got engaged to my fiancé Jessica and her daughter Autumn. We are currently planning the wedding, but enjoying our engagement along with building a home for our family. Besides work, I also think of myself as being a bit "dorky", with interests including volcanoes, space, and wildlife.

    I grew up in Wilmington, Delaware, and attended Widener University. During my time there I was lucky enough to find my Better Half.  After getting married, my husband's job gave us the opportunity to relocate quite a bit.  We have lived in Wisconsin, California, Texas, Arizona and now Charlotte. 

    When we moved to North Carolina, my son, Vincent was still in Arizona in College, and my daughter, Katarina was a junior in High School.  With them being semi self-sufficient, I decided to get back into the workforce. In January 2012 I went to a Temp agency, and on the very first day I was told that Hendrick BMW was in need of a Receptionist.  The rest is History! 

    It has been one of the best decision I've made.  This is a FANTASTIC Company to work for!  It is like one big family.

    I was born in Coco Beach, FL, and moved to North Carolina when I was in 2nd Grade. I attended middle school and high school in Mooresville, NC. I am obsessed with dogs and anything that has to do with them. I have even requested to be notified if we have a four-legged visitor in our showroom (I am not crazy, I SWEAR!). I worked in the restaurant business until I was blessed to start my career with Hendrick in September of 2015.

     I started in the Filing Department with the Hendrick Consolidated Accounting Office in Charlotte. I worked my way up to Transaction Processing where I worked with Hendrick BMW Northlake, MINI, Porsche, Land Rover, and finally began processing paperwork for Hendrick BMW in July of 2016. I developed a very close relationship with the Finance Managers at BMW, then became very fortunate to be offered the position of Finance Assistant, and officially became part of the team on April 10, 2017. This is one of the best jobs I have ever had. The Hendrick BMW family has been very good to me and I am incredibly thankful. I currently live in Charlotte with the love of my life, Lee and my two dogs, Dodger and Robin.

    I grew up right here in Charlotte, and it has been a joy to watch the city grow over my lifetime. It is also a joy to work with a company that proudly calls Charlotte home. I started with the Hendrick organization in June of 2002 with a part time role at Hendrick Motorsports sweeping the floors of the shop that was occupied by Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson. That roll expanded over the course of many years until 2010, when I graduated from UNC Charlotte with a degree in Political Science. Upon graduating, I moved into a roll with the newly founded Hendrick Performance Group. For the next four and a half years, my role was performing complete nut & bolt restorations on vintage Corvettes, many of which would go on to win some of the industry's most prestigious awards.

    In the spring of 2015 an opportunity to move into the Hendrick BMW family arose and I jumped right in. I have greatly enjoyed my time so far here and can't wait to see what the future holds.

Brian saw much potential in Mike and asked him to consider working at Hendrick BMW. Mike accepted the offer in September 2003 and has loved his time with us here. He's always had a passion for cars and with BMW's high-performance culture, the dealership was a perfect fit. Mike greatly appreciates the friends he's made at Hendrick BMW, both in coworkers and in clients. During his nearly 12 years with us, Mike has been a President's Club member twice and was a Hendrick Chairman's Club winner -- our top award for his role in our entire company - in 2012.

    I was born and raised in Burlington NC, a short 1.5-hour drive from Charlotte.  Growing up, I was always a "car guy".  From as early as I can remember I would eagerly await the latest copy of Automobile Magazine that would always show up on my nightstand after dad was done with it.  At the age of 17 I got my first taste of BMW M performance behind the wheel of a 1998 M Roadster and I've had a passion for BMW ever since.  After graduating from East Carolina University with a degree in marketing I set off for Charlotte and ended up landing a job in that field.  I soon realized I missed my passion, though, and that realization led me straight to Hendrick BMW.  Now, after four years of "playing with toys everyday" as I like to say, my passion has only grown stronger.  I'm happy to be a part of this fantastic team and representing Hendrick and BMW-two brands that I believe so much in.  It gives me great pleasure to help bring the dream of a new BMW to my clients, whether it's their first or their twenty-first.

    In my free time I enjoy volunteering with Habitat for Humanity on a weekday build crew and have been a "Big" with Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Greater Charlotte for the past five years.  I love calling Charlotte home and enjoy working for a company that also believes in giving back to this community.

    I was born right outside Miami, Florida, and moved to Charlotte, North Carolina in 1997. At the age of 6 years old, I began boxing, which led to numerous accolades. I was eventually invited to qualify, and compete in the USA Boxing Junior Olympic National Championship. I competed in the sport until 2007. 

    I attended New York University in 2008, where I discovered a love for film and fashion while studying psychology with a focus on human emotion. After NYU, I began writing screenplays in my free time, which I currently have four under my belt, and began a career as a personal stylist. I moved to Charlotte years later to be a part of my young niece's life.

    Jay Cardwell and Matt Niess of Hendrick BMW brought me on board as their #1 draft pick due to my accolades in high-end fashion retail. Since starting with the company, I have been awarded the Hendrick Automotive Groups Presidents Club Award for 2017 sales achievements. More growth coming soon!

    I was born in Binghamton NY and grew up in the small town of Endicott NY.  As I grew up, I really got into skiing at the age of five and continue to ski today when possible.  My first job was working for a local bicycle shop at the age of 16.  Eventually, I began to race mountain bikes professionally and really enjoyed that hobby.  When I reached the age of 22, I moved across the country to California and eventually began my career with Hendrick Automotive Group. 

    I have been with Hendrick Automotive Group for over four years now and love it.  I have held roles in Sales and Finance over the last four years and all of it has been with BMW.  These cars excite me every day, and helping people find the right car for them is what keeps me motivated.  Making a relationship first and doing what is right is my number one goal.  I look forward to meeting everyone as they come in our front door.  Come be part of our wonderful family!

    I was born in Portsmouth Naval Hospital in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.  My father was in the Air Force for 33 years, so I grew up all over the country.  I began high school in Hawaii and graduated in Florida.  I joined the USAR while going to college at UWF.  I began working in retail while going to college.  I got married and my wife and I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1996.  My wife and I both had careers in fashion retail management. 

    We had our daughter in 2011, and it changed our lives.  In 2014 we decided it was time for a change.  After 19 years in the Bay Area, we decided to look for a new home to raise our daughter and be closer to our families.  We looked for a new home on the east coast and fell in love with Charlotte. 

    I have been a big fan of BMW my whole life.  I have been a faithful customer for many years.  My family and friends have been telling me for years that I should go work for BMW because I am always trying to sell them on the brand.  We purchased our last BMW from a Hendrick dealership in Pleasanton, California.  I was excited to learn that Charlotte was home to one of the best BMW dealerships in the nation.  I am very happy to be part of the wonderful team here at Hendrick BMW in Charlotte.

    I was born in Tonganoxie, Kansas. A very small town just outside of Kansas City. In 2005, I moved to Forest City, NC and loved every day I spent in NC. In 2010, I attended Wingate University, just 30 minutes from Charlotte. In 2014, I graduated with a degree in Psychology and decided to stay in Charlotte with my fiancé, Stephanie. After college I tried a few jobs, but something was always missing. I have always had a passion for cars growing up with my oldest brother. We did everything from rebuild engines and transmissions to designing our own paint jobs. I soon realized Hendrick BMW was where I needed to be. There is no other car that I believe in more than BMW. I look forward to my new career here and all the wonderful people I will build relationships with. Let me know if you ever need a golf partner!

    I was raised in the small town of Monroe just outside of Charlotte and after graduating I moved to the "Big City".  I guess you could say I'm a true Southern girl!  I attended a small college known as American Business & Fashion with a concentration in Hospitality.  I have worked in the customer service industry my entire career including cosmetic sales, makeup artistry and property management.  A few years ago I married my husband Ian who is a native of Concord, NC. We've always considered Charlotte our home and always will.

    Working for Hendrick BMW has been an amazing experience. Every day I meet amazing people and always learn something new.  I am very excited to be part of the Hendrick Team and cannot wait to see what the future brings.

    I was born in Augusta, Georgia, however I consider myself a native North Carolinian, living here the majority of my life. Charlotte is my home and I enjoy all that North Carolina has to offer from it's beautiful beaches to breathtaking mountains.

    I have enjoyed serving the customers of Hendrick BMW for over three years. My experience here has helped me gain an unparalleled expertise of the greatest Performance and Luxury brand known by many but enjoyed by the elite. I began my career as one of our BMW Geniuses, with a hunger for knowledge and a love for the brand. I quickly excelled within the department and transitioned to service to gain a deeper understanding of the technical components within our vehicles. After a year of diligent training in Service, I felt well-prepared to begin leading customers to their dream vehicles as a Client Advisor. I take pride in my work and I enjoy what I do. Cars are my interest, but my true passion is serving my customers.

    After spending a few weeks visiting family who relocated to the Charlotte area, I knew where I wanted to be! The weather, the exciting growth and the friendly people I was fortunate to meet pretty much sealed the deal. So when the opportunity came to move from the suburbs of Detroit, where I was born and raised, and join the team here at Hendrick BMW, I didn't think twice.

    I bring with me an extensive and successful work experience in the high-line retail automotive industry, and passion to help customers enjoy their car buying experience. Throughout my fun and exciting career, I have earned many awards and achieved many goals. Thanks to all the wonderful people that I have had the honor and privilege of assisting, I was ranked consistently as one of the top sales and customer satisfaction professional's year over year.

    Joining the Hendrick Team is the pinnacle of a career I've enjoyed. I have had the privilege of representing some very fine automobiles, but none as fun, exciting and exceptional as BMW. I look forward to helping our clients find the right vehicle that fits their wants and needs.

    I was born and raised here in Charlotte, and schooled in the area until I moved to SC at the age of 18. I have always had a passion for cars, and first began selling as a Sales Specialist at a Chevrolet-Cadillac dealership in Greenville, SC where I worked for three years.

     While visiting Charlotte, the shared passion of the Hendrick community, and the BMW brand specifically, convinced me to stay. I met with Cam Warren, the New Car Sales Manager, and immediately felt like this was the best place I could be. I was offered a client advisor position, and I immediately packed my bags and moved into the city to join the Hendrick team.

     While I am still getting used to the city, I enjoy the weekends on Lake Norman and biking the trails at the Whitewater Center. I look forward to many more happy years to come with the Hendrick BMW team in Charlotte.

    I grew up in Richlands, Virginia, and loved living there, but on a vacation to North Carolina my wife and I fell in love with the weather. Shortly thereafter in 1985 we packed up and moved to Charlotte. My wife, Angela and I have been together for 23 wonderful years and married for 15 of those. We have one child, a son, Lukas, and have made a really nice life for ourselves here.

    Ever since I was young I always had an interest in cars and for a while I worked at a junk yard rebuilding cars and selling them. That was the beginning of my automotive career, I was hooked. I worked for several different companies and brands, and in 1988 I got my first job with Hendrick Automotive working at Hendrick Chevrolet Cadillac as their Used Car Sales Manager. I worked there for a time and actually left the company for a bit, but I couldn't stay away. In 2013 I returned to the Hendrick family and I have loved my time at Hendrick BMW so far. The best part about working here is the focus on family, both the Hendrick family and our personal families. Everyone truly cares about one another.

    I was born and raised in beautiful South Africa, My father is a Zimbabwe native and my mother is from Johannesburg, South Africa. I was born off the coast of Cape Town, in a small Town by the name of East London, but spent the majority of my child hood in the country, just outside of Johannesburg. I was very fortunate to be able to attend the Prestigious Hilton College, an incredible 4,350 acre all-boys boarding school located in the Mountains of Kwa-Zulu Natal on the East Coast of South Africa. It was here that I learned the true value of Language and Communication, which I credit the majority of my sales success to.

    My parents decided to move to Charlotte NC in February of 2007, along with my little sister. I later joined them in August of 2008. I finished my high school education at Providence High School, and started my University education at Life University in Marietta, Georgia. As a member of their Rugby team.

    After school, I got into the Christmas tree business, which is where I learned the valuable lessons of sales and customer service. A friend of mine and myself ran our own retail Christmas tree and pumpkin operation for 3 years. We ran all the retail lots in Wilmington, NC for Barr Evergreens. It was some of the most fun I have ever had working. Once I decided to step away from the Tree business I started to look for sales opportunities and BMW was my obvious choice. The only position available was the Lot Porter/Valet. I worked my way up into Sales and have enjoyed great success. I've been here 2 years now and look forward to many more.

    After graduating from USF in Tampa, FL with a business management degree, I fell in love and married my kind and beautiful wife. During that same period, I began working for Reeves BMW as a service advisor. After a little over a year there, my wife and I decided we'd like to move to the Carolinas. After interviewing with Hendrick BMW and spending time in the queen city, we decided that Charlotte would be a good fit and moved here in February 2006. Since then, our family has grown to include 2 wonderful boys. We feel very fortunate to have made the move to Hendrick BMW and to this fantastic city. I'm humbled to have so many great team mates and loyal clients. I hope to continue to serve the Charlotte community for many years to come.

I played throughout college and some Semi-Pro Baseball. I graduated from Queens College in NY and majored in Physical Education.

    After College, I started in the Auto industry, and have been with BMW for 7 years. I spent most of those years with Braman BMW in Miami FL, divided equally between sales and service. I enjoy the service side of the business and I am looking forward to continuing my growth with BMW and Hendrick BMW.

    Hendrick BMW is the most amazing dealer to work for. I have been with BMW for 7 years and I have never seen or experienced the level of service and professionalism that Hendrick BMW provides both the customers and to their employees. I am thrilled to work for this company and I am looking forward to much growth and success as the years go by.

    Hello, my name is David Owen. I was born and raised in Charlotte where I attended West Charlotte High School and UNC Charlotte. After college, I started working in the construction industry where I spent several years selling, renting, and managing construction equipment. A family friend introduced me to Hendrick BMW 7 years ago and I have not looked back. The team at this dealership strives every day to take care of our customers and their service needs. I am excited to be a part of such a great team!

    When not at work I have become a professional parent (with my wife of course) to 3 beautiful children, which teaches me daily how to exercise patience and understanding.

    I grew up in Southern Ohio, and I went to college at Marshall University.  I moved to Charlotte in 2003 and I have loved every minute of it.  I have been married to my beautiful wife, Alli, for almost 13 years now. We have two children, Maximus and Shelby.  I really enjoy working at Hendrick because they treat their customers and their employees with the utmost respect.  I could not ask for a better place to work and expand my knowledge of the automotive industry.

    I grew up in Livonia, NY, and graduated from Livonia Center High in 2000. I knew that I wanted to get into the automotive industry when I graduated so I went to Northwood University in Midland, MI for collage. I graduated with a degree in Automotive Marketing and a minor in Business Management. 

    After college, I managed the service department of Kemp's Bus Sales in Avon, NY.  In 2007, I moved to Charlotte and started working for Lake Norman Infiniti as their parts wholesale representative. Shortly after that I started working at University Volvo as a Service Advisor. And then finally in 2014, I was asked to join Hendrick BMW as a service advisor. This is by far the best position I have had yet. I feel very fortunate to be part of such a wonderful company.

    I was originally born in Memphis, but lived most of my life in Birmingham, AL. I spent 12 years in different restaurant industry roles, which is where I met my wife, Mandy, in 2004. I had always wanted to work with cars in some way, and in 2014, under the advice of a friend who works for BMW North America, my wife and I moved to Charlotte to begin our new lives, and join the Hendrick Family.

    Since moving to Charlotte, we have met so many amazing people. We have also welcomed our first child, Anna. Working for Hendrick BMW has been an awesome opportunity to learn a business from the best and grow in my career at a quick rate. The people I get to work with everyday are true professionals, and I couldn't imagine working with anyone else.

    I was born and raised in Charlotte, NC, and attended South Mecklenburg High School. I have a passion for cars and always have. That is what led me to the automotive industry and Hendrick BMW. Working here has been like a second home to me. I really enjoy my job and look forward to many more years striving for excellence with one of the best teams the industry has to offer.

    I grew up in Concord, NC, originally from Charlotte, which there aren't many of us left.  I attended Northwest Cabarrus High School and JF Webb High School, where I played baseball and basketball. 

    I've been in the car industry for 12 years, originally starting at a Goodyear in Charlotte where I learned the ropes jumping around to various locations trying to find what fit.  I was then referred to Hendrick BMW by John Paul Kemp, a Service Advisor, and Michael Gosselin, a BMW Certified Technician, who are mutual friends that told me that Hendrick BMW is an awesome place to work. I have been here two years and love coming to work every day.  This job has been nothing but positive for my family and I, both personally and professionally.  It allows me to travel more and enjoy coming to work.  There are plenty of opportunities throughout the workplace for whatever area I want to be in. I encourage others to try to get in with the Hendrick family as it's a great company to work for!

    I was born in Dayton, Ohio, but I have lived in North Carolina for 22 years. My first automotive job was with Advance Auto Parts, which led to a job at CarMax. My job there eventually led me to Hendrick BMW. I really enjoy working for a large company with a focus on their employees. You can actually feel the reach of Mr. Hendrick even at the dealership level. Focusing on his Core Values each day makes it a pleasant place to work. The best part of my job is the great relationships I've built with my customers. Some of them call me just to catch up since we've worked together so well. I look forward to growing with the company and one day to play a round of golf with Mr. Hendrick.

    I have lived my life and grown up in the town of Matthews, NC.  This makes me one of a select few that seem to be native to this area.  I attended CPCC where I received an Associates degree.

    I have worked on German cars from the age of 17, beginning my career at an independent repair shop that I worked at for 21 years.  Feeling the need to change and advance my career I began to work for Hendrick BMW a little over a year ago.  I had my first experience with this dealer in 1982 when my parents bought a 320I.  It was the first BMW I began to tinker and experiment with.

    I was born and raised in Rochester NY. I grew up in my family's car restoration business, which is how I ended up in the auto industry. In 2003, I began working for a BMW dealership in south Florida. I gained a lot of experience and know-how in my time there. Recently, I was fortunate enough to relocate to Charlotte to work for Hendrick BMW. I see this as a great step forward for my career and life, and I'm excited to be here!

    I was born and raised in Southern California before heading to Pennsylvania to attend Villanova University. After graduating, I was lucky enough to receive a job offer from Hendrick Automotive Group and moved down to Charlotte to join the team. I have been here for a little over a year and am greatly enjoying working with the incredible people at Hendrick BMW.
