Joey Moore

Joey Moore | Client Advisor

I was born in Wilmington in 1976, so my love for this area goes back to childhood. I have been in the automotive business for 18 years now as it is my career and something I enjoy doing on a daily basis. I love the saltwater mainly to enjoy my favorite hobby, fishing, but just being on the water with my girlfriend and chocolate lab is therapeutic and relaxing. I am excited about the opportunity to represent Porsche in the Wilmington area as it has been a long time coming!

Steve Schum

Steve Schum | Client Advisor

I am certifiably a car nut, I have owned over 400 vehicles in my short life ( 58 ) ! Two of my favorite cars I have had the pleasure of owning was the very first Boxster here in Wilmington ! I loved that car ,and all the attention it drew everywhere I brought it ! Another of my very favorites was a 2013 Cayenne GTS red in color with beige leather and suede interior !!! After leaving the clothing business after 30 years ,and traveling the country I decided to stay home, play golf, boat and lead the life of leisure. Retirement wasn't all it was cracked up to be, and I truly found the job I was born for. Being able to represent and sell Porsches one of the finest manufactures, and work for one of the finest dealers in the automotive field.

Having worked with various types of customers over the years at AT&T, I found that I missed the interaction with people on a daily basis and decided to get back into the work force on a part time basis. I have been here since September of 2014 and I have loved every minute of it. I am excited to be part of the Porsche family.

Kylie Hillyer

Kylie Hillyer | Brand Ambassador

Moved to the historic downtown in 2015 after an upbringing in a small farm town in northeastern Ohio. That move definitely changed my life for the good! After a few months of exploring, my all time favorite thing to do, I had to start working again. I knew I found my second home the moment I walked out of Mr. Wade's office the day of my interview. I have the opportunity to share with clients all the amazing things their new vehicle can do. It is such an exciting time that everyday here I'm guaranteed to see smiles. The vehicles are surely gorgeous, but seeing the smiles they bring has to be my favorite part.
