Employee Spotlight: Brandye Andrews

Here we are again, sitting down with one of our team members to learn more about them. We love learning about our team! This month we are talking to Brandye Andrews, in Sales Support at our Chevrolet location. Brandye has been with the company for 14 years now. We sat down and gave Brandye our usual “spotlight” questions and here is what we learned!

VanDevere: Hi Brandye, thank you for taking the time to sit with us. We will start off easy… What is the best thing about your job?

Brandye: The excitement knowing everyday will bring new challenges and all of the friends I have made over the years!

VDV: That’s great! We do have such a great staff that helps us grow and laugh everyday. What are 3 words you would use to describe VanDevere?

Brandye: Caring, Generous, Fun!

VDV: Fantastic three words that I can easily agree with. There are always fun events, opportunities to give back to our community, and teamwork within the staff. What do you like to do when you are not at work?

Brandye: Spend time with friends and family. I am an animal lover, so spending anytime I can with mine or feeding the birds outside, working in my garden and yard. I also love to cook and try new foods.

VDV: Friends and family are the best way to spend time. It also doesn’t hurt to have furry friends, nature, and food to keep us busy and having fun too! Speaking of keeping busy, what inspires you the most?

Brandye: Everyday heroes inspire me to be a better person.

VDV: Well put! I also think that it’s the little things and everyday people that can make big impacts on the world. Speaking of heroic people, if you could pick a superpower, what would it be?

Brandye: The ability to teleport! How awesome would it be to have dinner or visit a different place in the blink of an eye!

VDV: I completely agree! You for sure would be able to try so many different cultures food and learn so many new things that way. With this superpower, where would your first travel spot be?

Brandye: Virginia Beach and New Jersey! We try to go once a year. The beach is such a special place to me. I hope to live near the beach someday.

VDV: The beach is a magical place! You can never go wrong with the warmth, the water, meeting new people, trying fresh food, and relaxing! Now, do you have a favorite place to eat or visit when you are there?

Brandye: Cheesesteaks from Philly. Also, I am kind of a pizza snob. We love to try all the great pizza places in town.

VDV: Cannot go wrong with a cheesesteak, especially if it is hot and fresh from Philly! I also think you have to try all the local; favorite pizza spots in new cities. Last question, since we are in the car business, what is your dream car?

Brandye: Nothing fancy, but I would love a large SUV someday!

VDV: Nothing wrong with a large SUV! Super practical and great for doing all of the traveling that you love doing! A big thank you to you, Brandye, for taking the time to talk with us today. We appreciate your hard work over the past 14 years of employment with The Vandevere Bunch. Happy Holidays everyone! See you all in the New Year!!!
