Meet Our Staff
I have been in the auto industry for 25 years and have owned or operated nearly every franchise. I really feel at home with the two fantastic brands we have here at Honda BMW of Champaign. You should know that although we have a great staff here to handle anything you might need, I am available in the dealership every day that we are open with very few exceptions. You can contact me on my cell phone, send me an email, or just drop in any time. I will make it my business to assist you personally. I don't believe in coincidences and I like to think that I can manufacture luck.:)

We found Robert hauling cement blocks up a ladder on Green street in July of 2015. He made a carrer change to the air conditioned showroom and has flourished as a car peddler since. Despite his "culinary background" he has yet to strap on an apron and show us his cooking talents, and yet he critiques the rest of us when we provide HIM with our team building meals. We would prefer that he just say "thank you", or even better--GRAB A SPATULA and stand a post!
