Our Pit Crew

Meet the EAG Team

Enthusiast Auto Group is comprised of ultra-talented and experienced sales persons, mechanics and staff.

As our company name infers, we are car enthusiasts who have transformed our passion for cars into our career. We are a very specialized automotive business and we employ very specialized personel. We are as selective with our team members as we are about our cars, the best of the best. We have extremely high quality standards and we do not waiver on these strict parameters. Learn more about our team by checking out their bio below:

As a lifelong owner and lover of BMW and having spent much of my adult life in Ohio, I have been familiar with Enthusiast Auto Group for decades. Starting my career on the automotive industry’s retail side to pay my way through college at the University of Cincinnati, what started as my side job became a lifelong career built around my passion.

After experiencing nearly every department at a variety of dealerships around the Midwest, my wife Trisha and I went on to purchase and grow 3 pre-owned dealership franchise stores starting in 2016. After leaving the franchise pre-owned dealership world, we founded the BMW-focused boutique dealership “The Studio,” based just outside of Orlando, FL. At The Studio, we put an emphasis on selecting the best inventory, great photography, a strong social media presence, and transparency in advertising. But when I was offered the opportunity to become an owner of Enthusiast Auto Group, the decision was easy.

In my mind, anybody can source an inventory of unique, clean, and rare cars, but there is only one place that has assembled a team that is knowledgeable and passionate enough to preserve these cars that we love for future generations. Coming on board, I’m excited to grow the brand and show you more of what we do day to day at EAG while maintaining the unparalleled quality that the brand was built on.

Drew Leslie, Operating Partner/President of Ops

With beaming pride, I can say I was one of Eric’s first customers, purchasing a Techno Violet E36 M3 back in 2005 which became a springboard for diving deep into the BMW community and appreciating the EAG ethos. I remained a supporter of both Eric and Evan while I was employed by BMW at the dealership level. In 2012, I was visiting EAG during an Open House event and was offered an opportunity to join the team… The trip back to California, where I was living at the time, didn’t even cross my mind before I said “YES!”

Over the next ten years, I immersed myself in the attention to detail and quality finishings that go into every EAG-prepared BMW. It’s as in-depth as I imagined and exactly what I would want when buying one of these beloved BMWs.

I have always felt that an EAG rejuvenated BMW pulls at the strings of nostalgia that are connected directly to the heart. And, speaking of nostalgia, that E36 M3 I mentioned earlier? I found its owner. I bought it back, and it’s coming through EAG’s modern rejuvenation program. It’s the second most exciting thing in my life right now, only bested by owning this incredible business that continues to Preserve the Passion and Embrace the Experience.
