    General Manager

    I am Gene, the General Manager of Schomp Mazda. I am originally from Ukraine, Kiev and moved to Colorado in 1992. Before joining the Schomp Automotive Group, I worked in IT. I wanted to work for Schomp because of their refreshing way of selling cars & how they took care of clients. I began my automotive career in 2001.

    When I am not working, you can find me hunting, fishing, and playing all sports. My passion is my family. A fun fact about me is that I also speak Russian since I grew up in Ukraine.

    Here at Schomp Mazda, I am committed to doing everything I can to make sure every client is treated kindly and is happy every time you visit our store. Please reach out to me if there is anything I can help with!

    Sales Manager

    My name is Brian and I’m originally from Naples, Florida. I’m currently learning Spanish from my wife who is from Colombia. I came to Colorado in 1989, right after High School to go to college.  I ended up staying here because I enjoyed all of the outdoor activities, such as hiking, biking, camping, snowboarding, and whitewater rafting. I first got into the Automotive industry in 1996 as a salesperson for Nissan. I decided to apply to Schomp because of the reputation Schomp has for being innovative, having integrity, and giving a world-class experience for both employees and their customers. Before coming to Schomp, I was the General Sales Manager at Empire Littleton Nissan.

    Outside of work, my hobbies include playing guitar and spending time in the mountains with my wife Ingrid and daughters Stephanie and Sarah. I am passionate about being the best version of myself for our customers and fellow employees. I want my customers to know that I am here to serve you with your automotive needs and be your friend in the car business while giving you a world-class experience here at Schomp Mazda!

    Hi, my name is Bego. I was born in Bosnia, grew up in Germany and came to the US when I was 11 and have been in Colorado ever since. I started my automotive career at Kuni Honda as a lot tech and moved up to sales 6 months after. I was there for 2 years and now have been at the Schomp Mazda for 5 Years now. I love cars, working on them and pretty much anything to do with them. You can say cars are my passion and anything that goes fast. I have had a lot of jobs – more than most people have had in a lifetime – until I found that selling cars is something I love to do. I am your guy if you’re looking for a New Mazda or any kind of used car, my car knowledge is pretty extensive.

    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.

    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 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!

    Hello everyone. I’m Erick, born in California but raised in Colorado. My family came to Colorado around 1995 and I’ve lived in Aurora since we arrived. I’ve been in the automotive industry since 2015, and decided to come to Schomp Mazda because the business is growing, Schomp has a proven and successful process, and I enjoy the transparency from both sides of the business. This company offers great benefits to employees and customers alike. Prior to getting into automotive, I sold phones with Sprint and T Mobile. I also worked for a local gym in their sales department. The dealerships where I worked before Schomp was a family owned business that has been open for almost 45 years, and I spent a good majority of my time there.

    Outside of work, I enjoy basketball, lifting, online gaming, design and landscaping. I’m also a big enthusiast for tiny house living and I’m currently working on one in my own backyard. I speak Spanish fluently as well. Si prefiere conversar en Español, venga a visitarme en Schomp Mazda!

    Hi, I am Charles! I am originally from Rhode Island, but moved to Colorado in November of 2019. Before working at Schomp, I worked at a Mazda dealership in Rhode Island for 7 years as a Sales Person, Internet Director, and Assistant Finance Manager. When I moved here, I interviewed with four different Mazda dealerships. I chose Schomp because of their One Price. One Person. One Hour sales philosophy as well as how well they treat their employees. I felt an incredibly positive vibe in their showroom which was different than the other dealerships as well.

    When I am not working, you might find my wife & I taking our dog to the dog park. We also love stand-up comedy and think Sebastian Maniscalco is absolutely hilarious. I enjoy following the MLB (Go Red Sox!) I also enjoy watching the Rockies & playing golf.

    I really enjoy helping people and truly appreciate the opportunity to fulfill your automotive needs.

A fun fact about me is that I was lucky enough to fly the Goodyear blimp…twice!

I began my career in the automotive field back in 2002, and I’ve previously worked for the Schomp organization at the BMW location.

When I’m not working, you’ll likely find me sipping coffee, reading, working out, shopping, or sleeping.

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