    General Manager

    I am Gene, the General Manager of Schomp MINI. I am originally from Ukraine, Kiev and moved to Colorado in 1992. Before joining the Schomp Automotive Group, I worked in IT. I wanted to work for Schomp because of their refreshing way of selling cars & how they took care of clients. I began my automotive career in 2001.

    When I am not working, you can find me hunting, fishing, and playing all sports. My passion is my family. A fun fact about me is that I also speak Russian since I grew up in Ukraine.

    Here at Schomp MINI, I am committed to doing everything I can to make sure every client is treated kindly and is happy every time you visit our store. Please reach out to me if there is anything I can help with!

    “Schomp I have been with Schomp Automotive since 2014. I was on our corporate training team for a while before coming back to the sales side to become a Senior Client Advisor. I grew up around Milwaukee, Wisconsin most of my life. My love of cheese and beer is in my DNA.  I served in the Army for three years working with the Patriot Missile system. I was lucky enough to be stationed in Germany and got to travel lots of Europe. I spent many years working in the casino industry working my way up from a blackjack dealer up to a table games shift manager. In my off time, I enjoy spending time with my cats, going to sporting events, and participating in obstacle races.

    I was born in Nashville, Tennessee and my family moved to Aspen in 1989. I worked in the restaurant industry while I was in high school, and began working in the Automotive Field in 1999. I love Colorado because I like to ski, hike, mountain bike and spend time with my dogs and my family. My favorite MINI at this time is the third generation GP, because have you seen it?! I love when my customers bring their dogs into the store. They always seem to brighten the mood of all the employees, especially me.

    Parts Manager

    I’m Dennis, and I’m from right here in Denver, Colorado. I’ve been living here since 1958.  I got into the automotive industry in 1977 and before that, I had a brief stint working in landscaping. My favorite MINI model is the Countryman because it’s a nice all-around vehicle with all-wheel-drive and is capable of handling Colorado’s crazy driving conditions.

     

    When I’m not at the dealership, you’ll likely find me in the outdoors – fishing, playing golf, or snowboarding. I’ve been with the Schomp organization for over 37 years, helping customers repair their vehicles. I’ve built personal friendships with many of my customers, and many employees me as well. When you visit Schomp MINI, I’ll treat you the way you would like to be treated and hopefully make another friend.

    MINI Motoring Advisor

    Hello everyone. I’m Patrick and I’m originally from Akron, Ohio. I came here to Colorado and got my career started in the Automotive Industry in 2020. Before joining the team at Schomp MINI I worked as a sommelier. My favorite MINI model is the MINI Countryman – because of its versatility. When it comes to buying a new MINI, I strongly believe that a proper MINI is built, not bought. Everyone should accessorize their MINI to make it their very own. When I’m not at the dealership helping my clients find and customize their perfect MINI vehicle, I’m likely out pursuing one of my hobbies – drinking some wine, learning about cars, going to the gym, or snowboarding.

    My name is Jesse Cooper and I was born and Raised in Morrison, CO. My entire family was based in the Automotive Industry, so much so that I spent some of my childhood weekends helping my mom grill hot dogs and hamburgers during her weekend sales and it was something I just always enjoyed and stuck with me. One of my close friends who already worked at Schomp told me about here and it just seemed like a perfect fit for me. I joined the team in 2019. Before working at Schomp, I had just graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder where I received a Bachelor’s of Arts in Media Production. This degree allowed me to go down to Orlando, FL and participate in the Internship Program at The Walt Disney World Resort. If you bring up any Disney Song, I promise I will karaoke sing that song with you no matter where we are. Promise!

    I’m a huge art and foodie kind of person. I love visiting new restaurants, food trucks, and coffee shops all over Denver on the weekends. Denver always has something new and upcoming which makes it so fun to explore! I also love photography and going on a random adventure to find new places with my friends! I am super passionate about my family. I grew up in a Single Mom household and my mom means the absolute world to me. My mom has always been my biggest supporter and has always encouraged me to do the best in everything I can.

    MINI Parts Counter

    Since joining the Schomp organization back in 2015, I’ve had the amazing opportunity to work a multitude of jobs throughout the service department. I have had the pleasure of working on the vehicles as a certified MINI technician, working the service drive and meeting customers from all walks of life, and learning the parts department from the counter to what it entails to run a department.  I would consider myself an expert when it comes to the cars and the brand of MINI in general. I also own a MINI (R56) so that helps.  Outside of work, I find myself riding and working on motorcycles. I have owned more bikes than I care to admit. Here at work, my goal is to help both the customers and the employees feel comfortable and show everyone that Schomp is a one-of-a-kind experience that cannot be found anywhere else.
