- Houston, TX (1888PressRelease) September 03, 2010 - Todd Blue, Dealer Principal of Porsche of North Houston located at 18111 North Freeway in Houston, TX, announced today that Kurt Houser has joined the award winning dealership as Internet Sales Consultant. Houser's previous experience includes nine years with Sonic-owned Momentum Porsche in Houston as Internet Manager for the dealership's Porsche, Jaguar and Volvo car lines for two years.
Houser moved to Houston in 1984. He was a National Sales Trainer for Best Buy throughout the 1990s and began his automotive career in 2000 selling new and pre-owned BMWs. In 2002, he launched the internet initiative at the Houston's Momentum Group for Porsche and Jaguar, adding Volvo soon after. "Back when I started in internet automotive sales, the industry was just beginning to market cars online," said Houser stressing that online automotive marketing has come a long way since then. "These days, we have so many cutting-edge tools at our disposal to ensure the customer has a seamless experience shopping online. It's an exciting department to be a part of."
Kelly Wolf, General Manager of Porsche of North Houston said, "I recruited Kurt because of his talent, love of the business and customer approach. He's an amazing addition to our team and we're certain he'll provide the level of customer care we're known for at Porsche of North Houston." Dealer Principal Todd Blue added, "His background in training and leadership is impressive. We couldn't be happier to have him on board to expand our internet department even further."
Houser said that the automotive business is in his blood, referencing his early childhood growing up in Detroit. Houser's father was an executive with Campbell-Ewald Advertising and was directly involved with managing the Chevrolet account. "When I was five years old, my father took me to auto shows, races and auto related events. I fell in love with the industry and it's been with me ever since."
Porsche of North Houston is Houston's only Premier Porsche dealer and one of only 25 Porsche dealers in the nation to receive Premier Porsche status in 2010. Todd Blue, Founder of Indigo Classic Cars, purchased the award-winning dealership in January 2010 and immediately went to work to differentiate the dealership's level of customer service from other Porsche stores in the Houston market. Blue describes the dealership's approach as "Porschecentric - a word we created to describe our total enthusiasm for all things Porsche."
Houser said that he's excited about the future and stressed that Blue and Wolf are willing to try anything and work together as a team. "I'm so honored to be a part of Porsche of North Houston. We've got the perfect mix of the right product and the right people. Porsche is just a phenomenal car you can drive every day. Kelly Wolf is a great leader and one of the best car guys in the nation because he's so enthusiastic about Porsche cars and customer care. Just the other day, I saw him putting a license plate on a car outside in one hundred and two degree heat. How many General Managers would do that? Only Kelly."
