Employee Bio: Michael Alf


Mercedes-Benz of Durham is proud to present another employee bio. 

Michael Alf has been with the dealership since it opened in October, 2014. Alf started as an apprentice and has worked his tail off to become a certified Mercedes-Benz technician.

Alf moved to North Carolina from Texas when his wife accepted a position with Wake Med. They brought with them two children, one in the 3rd and the other about to start kindergarten.

Alf was previously a Jeep technician, but discovered the opening at Mercedes-Benz of Durham through the Hendrick Careers website. He describes his job interview as unique, as his soon-to-be boss met him at his house while he was watching his children. Just another way the Hendrick Automotive Group stands out compared the competition.

You might notice that Alf shares his name with an 80's and 90's pop-culture icon. Instead of shying away from the comparisons, Alf embraced his namesake. One example of this is how he placed an Alf puppet on the shifter of his 2000 Toyota T100 when he was younger.

Alf's favorite car? The Mercedes-Benz GT AMG. What's not to love?

Stop in to meet Alf or any one of our experienced technicians and find out why Mercedes-Benz of Durham is quickly setting themselves apart from the competition.
