Mark Hicks: NYS#16000076838

  • Mark graduated from Dutchess County BOCES

  • He worked as an Automotive Technician for 12 years, was an assistant store manager for five years, and held a store manager position for one year

  • Mark has experience installing home HVAC systems

Mark says: "Growing up as a kid I spent a lot of summers on construction sites with my grandfather’s company and later my uncle’s construction company. I always thought that I would make that my career, but in high school I took an automotive course and my thoughts changed. I've spent the last 18 1/2 years in the automotive industry. During my time there I worked as an automotive technician, assistant store manager and store manager. Though cars have always been a passion of mine I found that working with customers and building relationships with them was also rewarding. I have now found a career that gives me the ability to work with people and get back to a passion of my younger years."
