Meet Jake! He’s worked at McGrath Buick GMC Cadillac for a little over a year.
He has two sons, CJ and Henry, and a wonderful wife, Lacey. He grew up in Cedar Rapids and started selling cars in Nashville, TN. His family wouldn’t be complete with his dog named Brewer! While going to school at Xavier he played soccer and golf.
When he isn’t working at McGrath he is enjoys golfing, playing with his kids, or cooking.
Jake wanted to become an Emerging Leader because he wanted his role in his work and home life to be more driven and successful. He wants to use what he learns from the program in his daily life to become a better person.
A leader that Jake looks up to is his Grandpa Stovie, who has always had a quiet, calm demeanor, but never had trouble making something he needed done, happen. His grandpa has always been treated with respect because he meets people with that same respect.
The one piece of advice that Jake has been given in his life and applies to his every day is, ‘never be content with being average, be the best version of yourself every day, and never pass the opportunity to learn something.”
