Bryan Smith
General Manager

My career in the car business started in 1988 when I was 16 years old and attending Milford High School! I began my journey working for Al Castrucci Ford as a lot tech and here I am now, 31 years later. I have worked for all three of Mike's stores and in many different positions along the way. I got into the business as a high school student; I needed a job and happened to live directly across the street from Mike Castrucci Ford (formerly Al Castrucci Ford) and have been with the company since!

There is so much to love about the job; the day to day excitement of meeting new customers and greeting the many existing customers that I've come to know on a personal level over the years. I also enjoy the new challenges that face me and my team on a day to day basis, they keep things interesting, and no two days are the same!

Both of my parents worked for and retired from Ford Motor Company (my mom has since passed away) and my dad and his wife spend every minute they can supporting my children and myself in all of our endeavors and activities. I am truly blessed with all of the support we receive from them. I am a father to three wonderful children, they are my life!! My daughter is a graduate of Ohio University and is currently a school teacher; she truly loves what she does. She is an awesome role model for her two younger brothers. My oldest son is a junior at Ohio Northern University where he's a Sports Management major and also plays football. My youngest son is a freshman at Milford High School and plays football, basketball and lacrosse; he hopes to play football in college.

I've had a love of motorcycles since the age of 4. I grew up racing competitively and was fortunate enough to have won a couple of National Championships, but I still enjoy riding casually now. I also enjoy playing golf, billiards and ping pong with my kids! I enjoy sitting outside around a fire pit with my friend and family but I spend most of my time watching and supporting my kids in all of their activities! I truly enjoy it and wouldn't want it and other way!!

New Car Sales Manager

I started in the car business in 1992. My first job was in sales at Mike Castrucci Ford in Milford. Mike Castrucci is the only automobile business that I have ever worked for and I have worked at all 3 locations! I got in to the business because I of an advertisement I saw in the newspaper. I was attending school at University of Cincinnati along with my soon-to-be wife. She was doing much better at the "college thing" than I was, so I decided to get a job to help put her through school. The advertisements I saw for sales always highlighted the point of "no experience required" or "we will train you", I figured that was the best option for me.

The thing I enjoy the most about the job is that every day is different! There is always a new set of challenges and opportunities. It is always changing and with that it doesn't make it into a routine. On a different note- it is also rewarding being able to help the people that have credit difficulties get a loan. Being able to help get a loan on a new automobile for someone when they are under the impression that they may not qualify for the loan is very rewarding!

I am married and we have two amazing children: Alie and Luis. My wife, Christina, and I have been married for 26 years and were high school sweethearts! I enjoy camping, being out in nature and cooking/grilling. Spending time with my family is something very important to me; I also spend a lot of time in Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

New Car Sales Manager

I started at Mike Castrucci Ford Lincoln of Alexandria in 2015. I began my career in the automotive business after high school. I became a lot tech at Beechmont Ford and worked my way up from there. I left my sales manager position at Beechmont in 2015 to come here; it has been almost 5 years now that I have been at this dealership and with a great team! I love the job here, the people I work with and the diversity of the job.

I have been married to my wife, Christine for 26 years now. We have two daughters, Kelsey and Rebecca. I also have a granddaughter now who is almost one year old! I enjoy being with family in my free time. It is important to me to be able to spend time with my loved ones, especially with having a new member in our family, my granddaughter. I love being able to have the opportunity to create strong relationships and bonds with those closest to me.

Dave Green
Used Car Sales Manager

I have been in the car business for 29 years, before that I was in the Navy- active duty and reserve for a total of 6 years. I also worked in video production. I got in to the car business once I was out of the Navy. I was out for 30 days and happened to drive past a sign for a car dealership that was advertising a sales position that was available. I have been in the car business ever since! I have been at this dealership for 13 years, since it opened as Mike Castrucci in 2006. I had always talked with Mike and had a friendship and connection, being in the car business, one day Mike called me and offered a job at a new dealership that he would be getting within a matter of months (this one) and I've been here ever since. Something I love about the job is that it is a game, a competition with yourself. If you sell something- you win; if you don't sell anything- you lose. That makes it a very self-rewarding job.

I have always been in the Greater Cincinnati area. I was born in Cleveland, Ohio and moved here as a toddler, so this is all I really remember. I also lived in Norfolk, Virginia for the time I was in the Navy. I have a wife who I have been married to for 33 years now. I have a son, who is the finance manager at our Milford Ford store. I have a daughter who lives in Charleston, North Carolina and works at a hospital there. I also have 3 grandchildren: Parker who is 5 years old, Emma who is 3 years old and Ava who is 2 months old! Some activities I enjoy are bow hunting and fishing. I also still like to work on video editing projects in my spare time.

Used Car Sales Manager

I have spent the last 13 years with Mike Castrucci Ford Lincoln of Alexandria; I've been at this location since Mike bought it! I first got into the car business after having a failed interview with Citi Bank. I grabbed a newspaper in search for something else and saw an advertisement for car salesman. Instead of having an hourly job, I was able to start my career and grow my future! Something I really love about my job is always interacting with new faces and the people I come to know very well. After you work with someone you are able to create those lasting relationships that soon become like extended family!

I have a wonderful family as well and am happily married to my wife, April. We have 4 amazing children together, 3 boys and 1 girl. I love to spend my free time with my family and create memories together! Besides work and my family, I also really enjoy going hunting and just being outdoors.

Jeff Brown
Finance Mgr

I started in the car business in June of 1992, the summer before I was supposed to start working for a company named Gold Circle as a fraud investigator, I was asked to work for Tom Tepe auto center as a sales person. After working there for the summer I had made as much money in those four months as I would have been paid salary for the entire year at Gold Circle. That was an easy decision for me to make. I have been at this dealership specifically since March of 2016. Something I love about the job is that each day is different; I like the rush that comes with selling cars.

Family is something that means everything to me. I come from a very large with 7 sisters and 1 brother! I have been married for 32 years. We have three great kids that I am so proud of. Everything I do, I do for my immediate family, to make sure that they have a great life. The business and career I have built has afforded me that opportunity. I also love to hunt, there is nothing like the chase of it! I am also a huge fan of The Pittsburg Steelers; that also allows me to spend quality time with my children and enjoy the sport together. My son and I go to several Steelers games every year!

I have been in this business for 13 years and all but 2 months of that time has been with Mike Castrucci. I got in the business after working in construction for several years because of my stepbrother, who was a salesman in Louisville, he inspired me to become a salesman myself. I ended up going around to 11 different dealerships until I was finally hired on at Champion Ford. I then became a salesman here at Mike Castrucci and moved to finance in August of 2017. Some things I enjoy about the job is being able to meet new people, the challenge of getting deals done and being able to sell a car to someone.

I have a wonderful wife, Samantha and we have 4 amazing children: Sophia, Rylee, Jacob and Samuel. Spending time with family is something that is very important to me! I also enjoy playing softball, going 4-wheeling and playing golf.
