Work Experience

Auto Purchaser
Feb 2019 - Apr 2021 Texas Auto Value

As Texas’s largest auto wholesaler, using a unique business design we purchase and sell our inventory at the largest auto auctions, such as Manheim, Metro Auto Auction and Adessa. Establishing close working relationships with flooring companies such as Nextgear and AFC along with auto dealerships has been vital in this position.  I have been fortunate to learn the industry from all aspects. Gaining experience as a title clerk and notary, I was able to collect $5.4 million in titles in a 4-week period during the covid-19 pandemic.  Currently working closely with dealerships purchasing aged inventory.
