Staff

Look at that team. We're pretty proud of our staff here at Schrier Automotive. And why wouldn't we be? We have assembled one of the best groups of automotive experts in the business - and they are all here to serve you. Feel free to contact anyone you see here and test their vehicle knowledge. Or, you know, set up a new or used car test drive or other meeting. We believe in putting our full attention to the customer, but we won't go overboard. And we don't believe in high-pressure sales!

  • Jeff Schrier
    President

    In 1984, I entered the car business by opening a small wholesale operation. Two years later, I opened my first used retail location in Lincoln, Nebraska where I was born and raised. In 1989, I made the move to Sioux City, IA and purchased Pontiac, Nissan, Toyota, Mazda and Hyundai stores. After three years, I moved to Omaha and purchased a Ford store where I later added a state of the art body shop into that facility. In 1993, I purchased more franchises including an additional Mazda, Subaru and Volkswagen.

    After more than a decade of success at my franchise stores, the car business was changing and I sold.  When my non-compete was up I decided to enter the car business again, but change it up. I spent a lot of time working on a different model of how to sell cars. I wanted to do away with business as usual. The car market was changing still and I knew I needed to change with it. After visiting dealerships all over the country and scouting locations locally, I landed here. The staff I have put together is a great group seasoned veterans that work with the client from start to finish. Our customers don't bounce around from person to person. This practice is instrumental in the customer experience and retention.

    I am the proud father of two sons, Isaiah and Ian.  I enjoy working out and spending time with my family.

    I have been in the car industry in Omaha since 1980. I worked for Jeff for 15 years in the late 90s early 2000s where I held various different managerial positions.

    I have had the pleasure of living in many places growing up in a military family. I came to Omaha in 1985 and decided to get into the automotive industry 10 years later and never looked back! In April of 2016, I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to come here to Schrier Automotive. I bring a lot of knowledge as I have tested and been certified in Subaru, Mazda, Volkswagen, Hyundai, and numerous other brands. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and attending sporting events. I take pleasure in hitting the road on my Harley or catching up on my favorite TV shows and movies.
