    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 of 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 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. Most recently, I managed multiple new car departments for a large local multiple franchise dealer. I am proud to come to a smaller, more personal environment where I can put my efforts into making selling cars fun again. I have been married to my wife, Joan, for over 30 years. I have 2 daughters, 2 granddaughters and a grandson to keep me young!

    I was born and raised in Omaha. I have been in the car business for most of my life starting as a title clerk. Before working at Schrier I was in the new car business where I worked my way up and gathered knowledge about vehicle financing. I enjoy working at Schrier Automotive, we all feel like family here and believe our clients should feel that way, too. It is very different than most other dealerships.  I have been married now for 30 years with 3 grown children and 2 grandchildren. When I am not at work I enjoy spending time outside working in my yard, cooking family dinners and being around my grandchildren.

    I have been in the Automotive Industry for over 25 years. The first 20 years of my automotive career were with the local BMW, MINI, Jaguar, and Land Rover. I bring high-end vehicle knowledge of 20 years to our dealership. I wanted to elevate my career after 20 years of selling, managing, and overseeing the operations of that dealership. I decided to join the Schrier Automotive Sales team in January 2015, knowing that Schrier Automotive’s customers come first. I have 2 wonderful children, Jack, and Abigail. When I am not at work helping customers, I am spending time with my children and playing golf.

    I’ve been in the automotive business since June of 1996, shortly after honorably serving in the US Army for almost 10 years as an Air Traffic Controller. My experience in the auto industry includes leasing, finance, and fleet sales, specifically cargo vans and company fleet operations. I am married to my loving wife, Lori. I have 3 grown children: Brian is in the US Air Force, Shane is a snowboard instructor and professional in Denver, Co, and Nicole is married to a soldier and stationed in Germany. I have one granddaughter, Alaina. I enjoy bowling, tennis, golf, and karaoke in my off-time. I am glad to be back with many that were with Jeff Schrier early on; happy to be back with “family”. I recently rejoined Jeff and his crew after a long wait! I was anxious to get back to where the customer is very highly valued and the vehicles sold are “top-notch”!

    I have been in the automotive industry for over 40 years. Prior to coming on board at Schrier Automotive, I had a local leasing company for close to 30 years with roughly 500 vehicles and spanning 29 states. During this time, I helped start the Make-A-Wish Golf Tournament and after 10 years, became the largest fundraiser for the organization. I’ve been married to my wife, Carrie, for over 35 years. You can say I married up! We have 3 grown children with outstanding spouses and 3 grandchildren. In my spare time, I enjoy golf. Working at Schrier Automotive has been wonderful. Everyone is helpful and supportive. I can see why we are the envy of other dealerships!
