Derek Celebrates 20 Years with Academy Ford


Derek has been a part of the Academy Ford family for 20 years today.  He began his career in automotive right here at Academy Ford. He started out as a porter keeping the grounds clean, assisting with any errands needed for the dealership, among other responsibilities.   Only a few short months into the position an opportunity arose for a service advisor and he was asked by the then general manager to take it.  The rest is history, he has been working in this position ever since.  When asked why he likes working at Academy Ford, Derek referenced his customers and how much he appreciates each and every one of them.

Derek was born in Annapolis, MD.  But, grew up in the Millersville/Crofton area and still lives there. Outside of work he spends his time golfing, fishing or riding his motorcycle. His favorite meal is lasagna.

Congratulations to Derek on reaching this career milestone! We appreciate your commitment to Academy Ford!
