There's a reason why and how you can work for an individual for this long.  There are several long term co-workers that will make the same statement.  Eitel values his people and customers, he understands that they are the face and success of his business.

When I'm not at work, my son and I enjoy all motorsports and racing.  I attend all the car shows, and I actually enroll my own cars in these shows.  My passion is motorsports.  The BMW Brand, the engineering and technology is ever changing which helps me keep the interest in what I do.

Like many others, I enjoy working for Eitel because Eitel has a level of respect for people and our business that I have heard over and over again, difficult to find.  I am married and we have successfully raised three children, my wife and I  are now the benefactors of two wonderful Grandchildren.  I find my peace close to the water, I love to fish and I am looking forward to those moments you see on television with Grandpa baiting a hook with the grandchildren.

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.
