Although he claims Salem as his hometown, David has been a fixture in Roanoke and at First Team since 1988. Initially enticed by the rewarding challenges and opportunity to travel, his time spent in the auto industry has prepared him for how a business should be run. From the ground floor of a then-small dealership named First Team Hyundai, David has risen in the ranks to helm one of the most successful franchises in Virginia – First Team Auto Mall. In his spare time, David thoroughly enjoys beach days with wife Robin, their two daughters, and their Cocker Spaniel “Sandy” (named with the beach in mind, of course).
