    Brian started as a mechanic in the Marine Corps in 1991. He led a platoon of mechanics from 1993-1995, and then started working with Performance in 1996 as the 2nd shift Service Advisor. In 1999, he moved to Acura as the Service Manager. From 2005-2010, he was the Service Manager for our BMW store, and now he is back in the Acura store as the Service Manager.

    I love Performance and the Hendrick culture. It's great to be part of a world-class organization that cares so deeply about their teammates and clients.

    Acura is my favorite car line. My family has owned 5 in the past 10 years including 3 currently. Acura is also world class and a good partner for the Hendrick organization as our commitments to customer care are so well aligned. Positive is how I live.

  • Christian Young
    Service Technician

    I began working on cars just after the purchase of my first car.   Not knowing any thing about cars, when the front brakes needed replacement, I replaced them.  When the clutch went out, I replaced it, learning all along the way.  At the age of 17 I began to work for a small "Mom and Pop" shop, while attending night school to become an automotive technician.  Several years and a few different independent shops later, I found my-self working at an Acura dealer in Northern VA.  A year later, moved to NC, began working for Performance.  I've been with Hendrick Automotive Group for just over four years now.    In my spare time I enjoy hanging out with Ernie at the farm, since we are practically neighbors and all..

    I started working on cars when I was in High School and loved it since. I attended Nashville Auto Diesel College and learned even more about cars.

    When I'm not working, I enjoy working on and driving my Mustang, going to the gym, and time spent with my family.
    My idea of a good day;s work is to reach all the goals set for that day.
