Rayco Eurospec's MARKETING MANAGER As a teenager I had a job as a stock person at Kmart. One day I was asked to stock the shelves in the electronics department with VHS video tapes. One of those video tapes was called “The history of Porsche”. I hid the videotape behind others on the rack until my shift was done at which time I purchased the tape. I watched that video several times until I was finally hired as a salesperson at Goodwin Volkswagen. Goodwin was also a Mazda, Porsche and Audi dealer but I was hired as a Volkswagen & Mazda salesperson. I worked my way through the VW’s and Mazda’s until I was invited to start selling Audi’s and eventually Porsche’s back in the early 90’s. I later went on to become Porsche Audi sales manager and held that title for many years. After leaving the new car world I found myself in contact with Rayco and I was asked to join team Rayco. I gladly accepted the offer and 4 years later, here I am. My actual title has never been discussed so when asked what I do, I usually answer with “Ceiling Tile Changer” to “General Manager”. In my off time I enjoy re-finishing furniture, antiquing with my soon to be wife, travel and I’m passionate about boating. George’s Favorite Car is one with a full tank of gas.
