  • David Dillon
    President/General Manager

    Although he claims Salem as his hometown, David has been a fixture in Roanoke and at First Team since 1988.  Initially enticed by the rewarding challenges and opportunity to travel, his time spent in the auto industry has prepared him for how a business should be run.  From the ground floor of a then-small dealership named First Team Hyundai, David has risen in the ranks to helm one of the most successful franchises in Virginia - First Team Auto Mall.  In his spare time, David thoroughly enjoys beach days with wife Robin, their two daughters, and their Cocker Spaniel "Sandy" (named with the beach in mind, of course).

  • Mark Straley
    Service Director

    Mark came to Virginia over 30 years ago. After several different careers, he settled into the automotive industry and hasn't looked back since. After many years as a service advisor in the Tidewater, Virginia area, Mark moved to Roanoke to become service director at First Team Auto Mall, and he has been here for more than 10 years.

    Moving from the Tidewater area back to the mountains of Roanoke was very rewarding; the fishing, camping, and boating were a big part of Mark's move.  According to Mark: "The Roanoke Valley, the people, the beautiful surroundings is a benefit. People here are very friendly, and I enjoy helping them with their automotive needs."
