  • Jeff Schrier

    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 worked for Schrier Automotive since 2011! I manage the website, do title work and everything in between. I was born and raised here in Omaha and have a Bachelor's Degree from UNO. I love being part of a work environment that is customer based and like a second family.

  • Chuck Hill
    Sales Manager

    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 32 years. I have 2 daughters and 2 granddaughters to keep me young!

  • Russ Durkan

    I have been in the Automotive Industry for the last 23 years. The first 20 years of my automotive career was 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 January 2015, knowing that Schrier Automotive's customers come first. I have been married to my wife, Pam, for 19 years and 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.

  • John Williams

     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 include 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 on 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"!
