Prestige has been family owned and operated since 1967 right here in Asheville. I was born and raised here in the Asheville area. I grew up hanging around the dealership, while my father Rudy was running it. At some time or other I have done every job at the dealership from cutting the grass, sweeping the floors, to cleaning the cars and working in the service & parts shop. I learned from my father that every customer is important, so I'm is here everyday doing whatever it takes to make each customer feel like family.
I've lived in Buncombe County off and on for 40 years. But I have always seen to make it back to the mountains. I'm currently living in Leicester, NC. I have been with Prestige for 7 years. Prestige is my 3rd sales job I have had. It will hopefully be my last.
We have the best products, great co-workers, and great customers. It's easy to say that.
My goal is to provide an easy buying experience and the highest customer satisfaction until everyone in the Asheville area drives a Subaru.
My name is Van Blankenship. I'm married to Lori Blankenship for over 14 years and have two grown up kids Amanda & Tim. I have been with Prestige Subaru for over 15years (March 15, 1998).
My name is Nathan Beall, I am a native to Western North Carolina. I have been a part of the Prestige Subaru Family for almost 4 years.
I have lived in the Asheville area all my life. I worked as a Automotive Technician for 20 years. I also had a towing company for over 15 years and during that time, I only had to tow in three Subaru's.... so now you know why I love the product.
I was born & raised in the Northeast. During my 20+ years of living in the South it has happily become my home.
I bring a long history of customer service to my job as a Sales Consultant. I have been an owner & manager in the restaurant business for many years. Much attention must be paid to detail in order for diners to leave with smiling faces. I bring that same customer oriented philosophy to my work here at Prestige Subaru.
I am a husband, a parent, and a proud grandparent. My favorite times are spent outdoors where I enjoy boating, hiking, golf, and walking with my Plott hound Nick.
I live on a mountaintop in beautiful Madison County...perfect terrain for a Subaru. In fact, our family owns four. I love spending time with my son, girlfriend, and her three children. We are constantly on the go with sports, as my son plays baseball. All the kids enjoy snowboarding and any activity that involves water.
My name is Guy Gettinger, folks call me Gator. I was born in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and raised in Lake Weir, Florida. I graduated Imperial Point Prep school (class 1982) and went to College at Tampa Tech.
My name is Bill Griffin and I am oringally a flat lander from Florida but we have always loved the mountains. For the past 3 years we have been fortunate to call Asheville our home.

My name is David MacRae. I am an Asheville native and it has been that way since I was 2 months old. The mountains are my home, though I've done my fair share of traveling, this is where I always want to come back to. I have two beautiful daughters (Amithyst and Ruby) who are my whole world, and I plan to let them grow up here in the same wonderful town that I did, because I couldn't imagine any other place to call home. Me and my girls love music, and that is another reason why Asheville is absolutely perfect for us, there is culture just oozing from this place! I love this town, and the people in it, and I believe that those people deserve to be driving the best cars in the world, and that is why I came to Prestige Subaru.

My name is Jason Wicks, Internet Sales Manager here at Prestige Subaru. I specialize in connecting you with the best vehicle to fit your lifestyle and needs. I look forward to welcoming you into the Prestige Family. I have been with Prestige since 2013, but my love of Subarus started in 1990 with my first car, a 1982 Subaru GL. Since that time, I have owned 7 Subarus, with four of those purchased from Prestige. As you can see, the Subaru brand has been much more than a car for me, it's been a friend and part of the family.
I am married to Lisa and we have 2 girls, Greta (3) and Afton (10) and our dog Olive (Yellow Lab). After growing up in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, I moved to Western NC in 1992 and fell in love with all the mountains can offer and have been here ever since. I enjoy mountain biking, trail running, camping with my family and I just finished my first Half-Marathon.
