Throughout his 18 years in automotive, he started as a Sales Consultant, then worked up through the ranks to Sales Manager, Finance Director, General Sales Manager, and General Manager. He’s always enjoyed selling, speaking with people, and cars – so getting into the industry was a perfect fit. “I walked into a dealership when I turned 18, and have enjoyed it ever since,” Derek says when he recalls how he got started.
