Service Adviser, Co-Owner
Brian is an owner who has put time and care into Elite Automotive Center. Not content to just open a shop, Brian spent 20 years training and learning directly from dealers so he could know and apply the best ways to help Elite's customers understand they are not a number but a family member. It's easy to understand why customer service means so much to Brian, his grandfather owned his own repair shop with his father, uncle and cousins all eventually working in the same industry. When he is not in the shop you can find Brian cheering on his kids at football games, dance competitions, basketball games or gymnastics competitions. No matter if he is in the shop or at home family is something he honors and treats every person as a member of.

Philip has held the philosophy from the very beginning of how Elite should not be just a repair shop, but a lifestyle of helping and serving others. He is a very caring guy who wanted nothing more than to see Brian's vision come true and, like in every other aspect of his life, he wanted to help in any way he could to make this happen. While he always had an interest in the cars & trucks, he never considered a career in it. Since joining Brian at Elite he is incredibly grateful this was the path life led him too. Especially since it helped him meet his beautiful, smart and loving wife. They just welcomed their 1st baby girl this January of 2020 into the family. Philip will always do right by the customer and truly believes in advising with his heart and not his wallet.
