As a high school student, Garrick landed his first job in the auto industry as a parts runner. After attending the University of Texas, Garrick returned to the auto industry, quickly gaining recognition for his hard work and vision.
In 2002, he was named one of the youngest GMs for AutoNation, and in 2004, he received the Young Leadership Award from the Automotive Hall of Fame. He has been with Mercedes-Benz since 1996.
Around the dealership, Garrick is known first for his service-minded leadership. He takes Alex Rodriguez’s mantra—“At Your Service”—seriously, and he has empowered his team to exceed clients’ expectations, no questions asked. Garrick also has a reputation as an energetic motivator and a bit of a practical joker, as evident in this festive dealership holiday video.
Away from the dealership, Garrick loves to spend time with his wife, Michelle, and their two busy kids, Presley and Garrin. He sits on the board of The Rose, which provides breast-cancer screening, treatment, and support to all women, regardless of their ability to pay. In his free time, he loves to swing a golf club and read a good book—not at the same time of course.
