Employee Spotlight: Mike Brown

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 Mike Brown, a Finance Manager at our Buick and Kia locations. Mike has been with the company for over 9 years now. We sat down and gave Brian our usual “spotlight” questions and here is what we learned!

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

Mike: The challenge it presents everyday!

VDV: Great answer. There is always something new happening at VanDevere. What is the best thing about VanDevere?

Mike: The culture

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

Mike: Fun, Family, Commitment

VDV: These are all so very true. Commitment is very important to us here, not only for yourself but for our customers and coworkers. 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?

Mike: I would say my hobby consists of watching sports!

VDV: Cleveland sports are my absolute favorite! I cannot wait until it gets a little warmer to enjoy going to some baseball games and eventually football too. What inspires you the most?

Mike: Taking care of my family

VDV: That is a great motivator! There is nothing greater than being surrounded by family. Speaking of inspiring people, fill in the blank, once I met….

Mike: The singer, Eric Roberson!

VDV: How cool! Would love to meet a singer, especially after attending their concert! That would be super cool, which reminds me… if you could pick one superpower, what would it be?

Mike: Create world peace!

VDV: I think that is a great superpower! The world would appreciate a superpower like that! What is your favorite travel spot?

Mike: Aruba

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?

Mike: La Hacienda in Puerto Rico

VDV: Love authentic hispanic food. I am sure everything in Puerto Rico was so good! Last question, since we are in the car business, what is your dream car?

Mike: A, Auston Martin Vanquish

VDV: A sporty and classic vehicle! Awesome choice. A big thank you to you, Mike, for taking the time to talk with us today. We appreciate your hard work over the past 9 years of employment with The Vandevere Bunch!
