    Hello everyone. I’m Kyle and I’m originally from Minnetonka, Minnesota so I’m obviously passionate about my Minnesota Vikings. I’m a proud father of three amazing kids who are my pride and joy. I’ve been here in beautiful Colorado since 2008 and I’ve been in the Automotive Industry since 2005. Before starting my career in automotive I did construction. I chose to join the Schomp organization when I came to Colorado simply because I like the way that Schomp does business. The company truly cares about its customers, employees, and the communities we serve. I’m here to help make your automotive purchase experience as smooth as possible, so feel free to contact me to let me know how I can assist you.

    I was born here in Colorado and love everything that it has to offer. Being a native has made me quite an outdoorsman. I enjoy hiking, fishing, camping, and water sports in the summer months. Winter brings the enjoyment of snowboarding, snowmobiling and the soothing appeal of hot sulfur springs.

    An important element of my life is helping members of the community who are in need. I enjoy working at local shelters and attending events like Race for the Cure. In my personal time I enjoy being with friends, family and my fiancée.

    I’m Todd Connell, and I’m the Fleet Manager at Schomp Automotive representing the Hyundai and Mazda brands. Originally, I’m from Columbus Ohio, but I came to Colorado in 2008. I’ve first started in the Automotive Industry in 2013. I chose to join the Schomp Automotive organization because I wanted to further challenge myself and Schomp has an impeccable reputation.

    My wife and children are my biggest hobby although, I love to golf, read, and I overall enjoy ALL that Colorado has to offer. I’m really passionate about Ohio State Football, playing golf, the outdoors and helping others! I always put my customers at ease by understanding the hospitality side of the car business. It makes it easy to have an empathetic point of view and being able to listen. I look forward to assisting you with your next vehicle purchase or lease!

    I was born in Wright Patterson, Ohio, and jumped around in early childhood before settling in Colorado in 2002. I graduated from Lawrence University in Appleton, WI in the fall of 2016 with a B.A. in Chinese Language and Culture and a B.A. in Linguistics. I am very passionate about learning languages, I believe that there is something to learn and beauty in every conversation. I can speak Chinese fluently and spend my free time learning Japanese and Korean. I also like to play soccer and shoot archery when I’m available.

    I recently finished working for The Walt Disney Company in Beijing, China as a North Region Foreign Trainer and Marketing Strategist before starting my first job in the automotive industry here at Schomp Automotive in 2019. My main reason for wanting to be a part of the Schomp family is to help make a difference in people’s lives. I take great pride in making sure that a customer has a great experience while finding a product that truly is their perfect fit.

    Hello Everyone! My name is Zakaria but most people call me Zak. I work as client advisor at Schomp Mazda. I’m originally from Morocco and I moved to the US a few years ago to pursue my studies. I had the opportunity to work at Schomp Mazda after I graduated last year with a Master of Business Administration from Indiana State University. I recently moved  to Colorado to get a job and I’m excited to start my first working experience in the Automotive Industry. I have been fascinated by cars since I was a kid, and my interest in the field grew substantially with all of the mechanical and technological progresses that drive the industry. I’m an easy-going guy who likes to meet new people and share my traveling experiences with them. I like to travel around the world, play soccer, swim, and I enjoy cooking and watching movies in my free time. I speak both Arabic and French, and hope I can learn some Spanish soon. I’m very excited to help all my customers find the right car that matches their needs and assist them in deciding how to pay for it. I will also make sure that all my customers have a fun buying experience that embraces Schomp philosophy in doing business.

    My name is Micah and I am originally from a small town in Wisconsin called Ixonia. I have been living in Colorado since July of 2015. This is my first job in the automotive industry, and I’m proud to be part of the team at Schomp Mazda. I am a huge Mazda enthusiast, so it was only natural to get involved with a dealership who has a Mazda location. Before I worked with Schomp I was the General Manager of a dispensary in Denver. I spend the majority of my free time snowboarding and working on project cars belonging to me as well as vehicles belonging to my friends. That being said, cars are something that I am extremely passionate about. I would like my customers to know that I am a very personable and knowledgeable advisor who takes pride in assisting my clients in getting them into the right vehicle that suits their needs.

    I’m originally from Huntington Beach, Southern California. I’ve been in the auto industry since 2010, mainly on the service side, but in July 2019 I decided to make the switch from Mazda Service to Mazda Sales – and I have loved every moment of it since! Before coming to Schomp I worked with Discount Tire / America’s Tire in SoCal. I was an assistant store manager. When I ended up leaving Discount, I started working for Mazda in Tustin, CA. I worked at Tustin Mazda as a Service Advisor for a little over a year before I moved to Colorado in 2017. When I came here I worked for two Mazda competitors writing service and also had a short stint with LHM Dodge Ram. However, I’m most passionate about the Mazda brand and culture.

    When I’m not at the dealerships, I enjoy spending time with my family. I also enjoy hiking, craft beer, and trying new breweries!

    I’m originally from San Francisco, California but I moved here to Colorado in 2017. This is my first stint in the Automotive Industry, and I applied to Schomp because I wanted to begin building a career and was aware of how good of a place Schomp is to accomplish that goal. What really attracted me to the Schomp was the One Price. One Person. One Hour.® business model. My sales experience has always been focused on customer service rather than commission-based, and I’m here so I can help meet people’s needs in an honest and transparent environment.

    I spent most of my professional life working retail at Best Buy while doing 3D digital modeling work on the side. 3D modeling is now a hobby and a passion of mine, as well as anything that involves spending time with my girlfriend and our dog, such as hiking! Also, I’m dyslexic, so don’t be afraid to correct me if I start reading everything backwards!

    I grew up in Aurora, CO, and have lived here my entire life. I began working as soon as I turned 16 for Lifetime Fitness because I enjoyed the idea of working hard to give members the best experience possible. I believe that work ethic and making sure the client is always taken care of has translated over to Schomp. Growing up in a family that always purchased BMW’s from Schomp, I knew from a young age it was an atmosphere I wanted to be apart of.

    On my days off, I’m usually spending time with my family or friends. I grew up playing basketball and golf  competitively. I compete in DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of America) and FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) competitions for Grandview High School.

    I look forward to my future with Schomp Automotive and find myself very lucky to be able to work for such an amazing organization.

I began my career in the automotive field back in 2002, and I’ve previously worked for the Schomp organization at the BMW location. I chose to come over to Mazda because of my former ties to the Service Director and Service Manager in this location. They’re the reason I came back!

    I am also a partner at a Business Consulting and Loan Brokerage firm for small and medium businesses as well as a new local CBD company. When I’m not working, you’ll likely find me sipping coffee, reading, working out, shopping, or sleeping. I’m excited to make a positive impact on someone’s life every day, and that’s what I strive for! I enjoy visiting with customers, and I thank you all for coming in and making my day!

    I’m almost 5 feet tall, so I’m waiting for Christmas to make a wish to be taller one day!

I started washing cars at a local Chevrolet dealership before moving to Parts and working for an aftermarket parts supplier. I then worked as a motorcycle mechanic and was the technician for a Kawasaki race team.

    I took a break from civilian life and joined the Army and served in Europe. When I was discharged, I went to work as a dealership technician before working my way up to Shop Foreman, then Service Manager, and ultimately landing as a Director of Fixed Operations. Later on, I moved into the Collision side of the industry and built and managed several facilities. I’ve worked for Daniels Chevrolet for 23 years, Cars Collision, as well as Gerber collision. I am also a certified counselor.

    I decided to join the Schomp organization because of its outstanding reputation. I love the outdoors and have too many hobbies. I enjoy golf, fly fishing, and I’m an avid fly tier. I’m a member of the Single Action Shooting Society and enjoy cowboy action shooting. I ride motorcycles and love woodworking. I am passionate about helping people be who they were created to be and live their dreams. I’m a Theme Park Junkie – I Love Disneyland and Universal Studios as well as water parks.
