Nathan Brown - Auto House Owner and MBA Recipient
Nathan "Nathaniel" Brown draws upon more than eight years of experience in his role as owner of Auto House, a car dealership with operations in Salisbury, North Carolina and Mooresville, North Carolina. Auto House employs more than 85 people and accumulates over $100 million in combined annual revenue at both locations, but its growth took patience and hard work from Nathan Brown (also known as Nate) and his business partner Sam Ketner.
Coming from humble beginnings, the company started with only two vehicles but grew through a consignment program and dedication to customer service. It now has a 4.9 out of 5 rating on Cars.com and an inventory of vehicles and parts in excess of 10 million. Beyond managing all aspects of accounting and vehicle financing, Nathan Brown stressed the importance of online marketing and hired a team to work 24/7 to oversee operations in that regard.
Mr. Brown also understands the importance of giving back to the community and, as such, has sponsored a local soccer club and contributed vehicles to the Salisbury Police Department in 2014 and 2015 for use in undercover operations. He earned an MBA from Catawba College, where he was treasurer of the Phi Sigma Epsilon fraternity.
