I started in the auto business in 1985, in Long Island, New York. I loved car dealerships from day one, and I still love getting up every day and “going to work”. I founded Pro-tect in 1993, after mastering the roles of General Sales Manager—and then Finance Director—for a successful dealer group. The principal for this dealership was a mentor to me…like a father, really, and his advice and support helped get Pro-tect off to a running start. Over the years, Pro-tect has represented some of the biggest names in the automotive F&I industry, companies that are widely recognized. Our focus has always been on appearance protection, and that’s no different today.
I’ve always enjoyed providing my clients with products that protect them and their investment, and now I’m bringing my philosophy and brand to agencies and dealers across the country.
Relationships are important to me. I think of my agents as family, and I treat them as such.
My mother was one of 16 children growing up, and she would always say “Treat people the way you wanted to be treated, and you can go through life trouble-free.” She was always right!
