Leadership Team

Over 85 Years of Combined Experience

MARS Nation Inc. is owned and operated by 5 men who have dedicated their careers to the automotive industry and have over 85 years of combined industry knowledge and expertise. They started as franchisees of a former national franchise. When the opportunity presented itself to take the reins and keep the core franchisees together, they knew that there was strength in numbers and wanted to continue the family atmosphere on which the foundation of MARS was originally created.
