Office Management

Tracey Snooks
Office Manager

Tracey joined the Eitel Dahm Motor Group at the Eastpointe facility back in 1999 which at that time housed both BMW and Audi Brand.  Tracey is responsible for making sure all the work done here at Bavarian BMW is accounted for and allocated properly on the books.  Our Receptionist and Cashiers also report to our Office Manager.  If we fall short of your expectations, or have any suggestions on how we can improve our processes, please let us know.  You may notice that Tracy is not alone, there are many other people associated with Bavarian BMW that have worked for Eitel Dahm for many years.  This demonstates the respect that Eitel has for his people, his business is based on people and their families.  

I have been married for 15 years, we have a 9 year old daughter and two dogs! She keeps us busy, she is involved in "dance" and I am a leader for her Girl Scout Troop.  We are very involved in our church, and when we find time to escape, we like to pack it up and head to our inlaws lake home for some fishing and water sports.  We spend a lot of time away from our familys for work, I feel fortunate to work for Eitel for so many years.

Office Team

Brittany Brenner
Warranty Administrator

Brittany joined the team here at Bavarian BMW in 2006 as a Service Coordinator in our Service Lane.  Her talent was recognized by the Service Manager and she was promoted to a MINI Brand Service
Advisor in 2007.  Brittany held that position until her daughter Hayden needed more attention, Brittanys value to the organization was appreciated and she was moved to her current position as Warranty Administrator.  The hours are much more condusive to family life.  Brittany does a great job for us here at Bavarian BMW, and like many other associates here, her seven years with the organization is fairly typical.

I enjoy working for the Eitel Dahm Motor Group.  You see Eitel in the store everyday.  He knows everyone by name, he appreciates his people and values them as the face of his business.  I appreciate them adjusting my position here which allows me to spend more time with my daughter Hayden and my two dogs.  I enjoy spending time with my family when I'm not at work, but I do look at my co-workers as my extended family and I consider myself very fortunate to work with such a great group of people.
