Employee Spotlight: Brian Gregory

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 Brian Gregory, a lot supervisor at our Buick and Kia locations. Brian has been with the company for over 20 years now. We sat down and gave Brian our usual “spotlight” questions and here is what we learned!

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

Brian: My team. Working with the guys and the whole department.

VDV: I agree, this bunch is awesome! What are 3 words you would use to describe VanDevere?

Brian: Amazing, fun, caring

VDV: These are all so very true. It feels like we have a fun activity happening everyday! Never a dull moment at VanDevere. Also, I love that our core values really show through in the family and fun atmosphere. What do you like to do when you are not at work?

Brian: Hangout with family and friends!

VDV: Nothing is better than that! I cannot wait until it gets a little warmer to do so many more fun activities with my family and friends. What inspires you the most?

Brian: My personal pride

VDV: What a great answer! It is very true and inspiring. Speaking of inspiring people, fill in the blank, once I met….

Brian: Jerry Rice at the Football Hall of Fame!

VDV: How cool! I think it's crazy that the Football Hall of Fame is not that far from us. He really is like a superhero, which reminds me… if you could pick one superpower, what would it be?

Brian: Creating longer days to enjoy or the ability to control time

VDV: I think that is a great superpower! There is so much you could do and see with a power like that. Especially since it feels like there are so many things to do in this world and not enough time to do it. What is your favorite travel spot?

Brian: Bristol, Tennessee

VDV: I have heard that it is a great place to travel to. I will have to make the trip sometime soon. Now, do you have a favorite place to eat?

Brian: Wasabi

VDV: Great choice! My favorite part is when you get to watch them cook it in front of you and the portion sizes are phenomenal. Last question, since we are in the car business, what is your dream car?

Brian: A 1970 Pontiac GTO.

VDV: That is a fun, sporty vehicle! Great choice! A fun bright color would make it even better in my opinion. A big thank you to you, Brian, for taking the time to talk with us today. We appreciate your hard work over the past 20 years of employment with The Vandevere Bunch!
