About Our Founder
Long before Dorian created Open Road Auto Concierge, he had already experienced a successful sales career in the automotive industry. Dorian’s career began in 1996 at a local Honda dealership in Sacramento, California when he was just 18 years old. Throughout the years, having worked for numerous car dealerships working his way up from the sales floor to the various internet, finance, and management positions, Dorian expanded his knowledge by working as a car dealership Sales, F&I, and Management trainer. Having held these various positions and still feeling unfulfilled, Dorian realized his passion for helping people and being a consumer advocate was not being utilized behind dealership doors. He knew his calling was for something greater. Dorian felt customers needed an automotive expert dedicated to one-on-one personal service to represent them throughout the car-buying process. This calling led to Dorian opening Open Road Auto Concierge. Dorian’s expert knowledge of the entire sales and finance process as well as his experience as a car dealership trainer enables him to use his inside knowledge of the sales cycle to deliver you the best deal, save you the most money, and provide you exceptional customer service.
Dorian believes buying a new or pre-owned car should be fun and exciting! After all, buying a car is the second biggest investment you will make aside from the purchase of your house. He wants to make this your best car-buying experience ever! Give Open Road Auto Concierge a few minutes of your time and you’ll be on your way to a hassle-free car buying experience in no time at all.
