Alex Andreus started his career at a very young age. His mother worked in the accounting department of a local car dealership and got him a part time job there when he was only 13. With years of experience under his belt, today he’s Partner & COO at Brickell Motors, where he heads day-to-day operations for the brand’s 7 dealerships: Brickell Honda, Brickell Buick GMC, Brickell Luxury Motors, Brickell Mazda, Ocean Cadillac, Audi Stuart and Infiniti Stuart. The dealerships span from Brickell and Bay Harbor all the way to Stuart. “We now have over 400 employees and sell more than 10,000 vehicles a year,” he says. While most of their customer inquiries originate from Brickell’s comprehensive websites, customers still want that personal touch when it comes to finalizing their transaction. “For years, we have offered home and office delivery, but only a small percentage of customers take advantage of it,” he says. “It will be interesting to see how that continues to evolve as a new generation of car buyers enters the market.”; BrickellMotors.com.
