Secret Academy Episode - Brett David
About:

Unquestionably, one of the auto industry's rising stars is 26 year old Brett David, who is the owner of Miami-based Prestige Imports, the top selling Audi dealership in the U.S. It's been the top selling Audi dealership since 2007 when David suddenly found himself at age 19, as the store's owner when his father Irv David died suddenly from a heart attack. Bucking conventional wisdom, advice from friends and plans established by his late father, Brett decided against selling the dealership. He made the right decision. That first year under his leadership, Prestige's sales exploded nearly 400% from 651 vehicles sold in 2006 to over 2000 vehicles retailed in 2007. And in 2010, following the worst recession in automotive history, Prestige sold a whopping 1,610 new Audi's and retained his title as number 1 Audi Dealer. Brett may have had the dealership handed to him, but as you’ll soon learn, his hard work, adaptability and leadership is what made him the superstar CEO he is today, but more importantly a respected leader amongst his peers.
