"The most rewarding aspect of my automotive career has been building — and having the privilege of working with — a team of professional men and women that focus on working hard, working ethically and respecting each other and our customers."
“The most rewarding aspect of my automotive career has been building — and having the privilege of working with — a team of professional men and women that focus on working hard, working ethically and respecting each other and our customers,” nominee Serbousek said.
A 1974 graduate of Mainland High School in Daytona Beach, Florida, Serbousek earned a B.B.A. in accounting from Stetson University in Deland, Florida, in 1978, graduating magna cum laude. He worked for nine years as a CPA before switching to the automotive industry as CFO of Jon Hall Chevrolet in Daytona Beach, rising to vice president and COO.
As the business expanded, Serbousek partnered with Jon Hall and Glenn Ritchey to purchase additional stores, and although Hall has since passed away, Serbousek and Ritchey today operate dealerships in Florida and Georgia. Serbousek’s son, Brett, a graduate of the NADA Academy, is currently general manager of their Subaru store in Melbourne, Florida, and works for the dealership group.
“We are proud that our corporate culture has provided the means to accomplish business goals and allows for a healthy balance between work and personal life,” he said.
And Serbousek has made great use of his time outside of work, contributing his leadership skills to many community endeavors. Most meaningful is the planning and building of a homeless shelter in 2005 that is run by Halifax Urban Ministries. “I am currently a board member for this group,” he said. “We raised funds for the shelter’s construction, applied for grants and worked through setting up the administration necessary to operate this shelter over the long term.”
The group is currently working on turning a vacant elementary school in Daytona Beach into another, even larger family shelter called Hope Place. “This was a team effort inspired by God, and we give him thanks for making this dream a possibility,” Serbousek said.
He is also a board member and treasurer for Food Brings Hope, which offers after-school programs in 22 Volusia County schools and one Flagler County school, providing nourishing meals, mentoring services and opportunities to participate in sporting and cultural events, as well providing weekend meals for students in need. In addition, Serbousek has served on the boards of the Stewart-Marchman-Act Behavioral Healthcare, a mental health and drug treatment center; the Halifax Humane Society; and Halifax Health.
Serbousek was nominated for the TIME Dealer of the Year award by Ted L. Smith, president of the Florida Automobile Dealers Association. He has two children.
