1) What’s your background as it applies to the Automotive Aftermarket and how did you become owner of Excelerate Performance?
For over two decades my hobby has been automotive related and more specifically, around modifying cars. It’s in my blood too, since my father loved fast cars as well. Once I got a taste for performance, the button was pushed and I began modifying my first vehicle heavily. After that, I began advising, selling and installing performance parts for friends and family. With this love of vehicles and love for business, the decision to go into business was obvious. I completed my Bachelor of Science in Business Management from Quinnipiac University in 2003 and never looked back! Armed with some entrepreneurial knowledge, an insatiable desire for the performance market, and some hard-earned funds, I began Excelerate Performance.
2) How long has Excelerate Performance been around?
The company was founded in 2003, right out of college.
3) What’s your favorite thing about running Excelerate Performance?
I love to work hard and grow the business. We’ve experienced growth through new brands, new partnerships, new markets, new services, new avenues and I love to be the driving force behind that growth.
4) What are a few best-practices Excelerate Performance and its staff implement when trying to sell 034Motorsport product?
We have always focused on being knowledgeable about the products we sell. We have read about 034, installed 034 products, tested 034 products, and used 034 products. We try to provide the customer the necessary information they need in order to understand why the 034 product is the best solution for them based on their needs.
5) Why does Excelerate Performance choose to represent 034Motorsport product?
034 has progressively improved in quality and quantity of its offerings and has begun to focus on manufacturing and its relationship with its dealers, which we believe is necessary for a true partnership.
6) What is your favorite 034Motorsport item?
The 034Motorsport X-Brace Billet Aluminum Chassis Reinforcement is a beautiful piece of machined aluminum and is really a sleeper. Most people don’t think it will make a huge difference but it does.
7) What other products best-compliment 034Motorsport product?
We feel that ECU tunes really compliment 034 well. All the chassis, suspension and drive-train components work hand in hand with ECU software. Most 034 components also compliment the suspension lineups we offer. We believe that the new kits coming out for the B8 and B9 chassis will work just as well.
8) What’s in the Garage?
My garage has included an entire gamut of vehicles: VW, Audi, Acura, Honda, Toyota, Mazda, etc. But currently it’s filled with an Audi RS7, Audi R8, 718 Cayman S, Acura RDX, and a Toyota Tundra 5.7.
