The Tennessee Redneck with the Greg Norman Hat: Mark Bonner Staff Spotlight

mark bonner 080320

Mark Bonner is a self-proclaimed “Tennessee Redneck” that hails from Chattanooga, Tennessee – a city made famous for the first gold record awarded by the music industry for “The Chattanooga Choo Choo,” the #1 song in the U.S. on December 7, 1941. These days, you can find Mark wearing a signature straw Greg Norman hat at Phillips Buick GMC in Fruitland Park where he sells new Buick and GMC vehicles as well as used cars, trucks and SUVs. And if you hear the sound of a train whistle, don’t look for a train; it’s just the ringtone on Mark’s cell phone.

For over six years, Mark has worked at Phillips Buick GMC, one of the top-rated Buick dealers in the Southeast for General Motors. While he has been in the automotive business since 1993, he enjoys working at Phillips. “Everyday is different and everything is really great here,” added Mark. “Phillips really empowers the salespeople to take care of their customers.” People from across the United States find their vehicles at Phillips.

Last week a 2019 Chevy Corvette was purchased by someone in Clemson, South Carolina. He was a huge Clemson Tiger fan and was very specific about finding a Sebring Orange Corvette. He found the corvette at Phillips and said “the car was everything I expected and more – not a scratch on the car.” The bottom line is that with the selection at Phillips, they almost always have what people are looking for or they go out and find it for them.
