A Mills Auto Group Success Story - Ian Grohs

I was hired in November of 2010 at the age of eighteen to work in Stateline's parts warehouse. In early 2012 I was promoted to the position of warehouse manager, during which time I was responsible for filling and quality checking all wholesale parts orders and managing our delivery routes. In July of 2012, I deployed with my Army Reserve unit, returning to Stateline in September of 2013. Upon my return, I assumed the role of retail parts advisor, during which time I began developing my expertise in parts sales. In May of 2014 I established Stateline's accessories department, which gave our customers the ability to purchase and personalize new vehicles all in one shot. Within just a few months I was generating an average of more than $500.00 in accessories sales per new unit, and I was nominated for the Automotive News 40 under 40 award during this time! In December of 2015, I moved into Stateline's wholesale parts department, taking the place of one of our veteran advisors following his retirement.

My time as a wholesale advisor is giving me the opportunity to handle a much larger volume of business, and is preparing me for the next step in my career. In addition to my work for Stateline, I have also been working on my B.S. in Business Administration, which I am very close to completing, and I have continued to serve in the US Army Reserve.
