  • Nick Smit
    General Manager

    Nick is our GM for good reason.  With over 30 years in the auto industry, his attention to customer needs is superior.  In fact, Nick probably sells more cars from referrals every month than an average salesperson.  As the leader here, Nick has an open door policy with all of his employees and recognizes that the success of Gresham Subaru comes from positive, fun group effort.  He says, "I have spent the last 18 years as the GM here, and I am very proud of our TEAM!"

  • Tracey Avery
    Sales Consultant

    Tracey has been in the auto industry for nearly 30 years, the last few years here at Gresham Subaru.  He is a true aficionado and lover of all things cars!  That includes selling (naturally), restoring, collecting, talking about, and showing cars. 

                    Current show car:  a one-of-a-kind  '68 Camaro convertible Tracey found in France.  And his current project car:  a '69 Cougar XR7.  Tracey does manage to separate himself from cars now and then, especially if it means a chance to go fishing or whitewater rafting.
