  • Josh Vaughn
    General Manager
    (888) 719-6983

    The road traveled for NADA Academy student, Joshua Vaughn, is as impressive as his most recent accolade from Automotive News, Top 40 Under 40 Retail.


    Not long after graduating from Wingate University with a degree in Business Administration, Vaughn found himself in the market for a new car.  He reached out to a good friend with a prior employment history with Hendrick Automotive Group.  After a quick test drive, Vaughn left with a job application instead of the usual credit application.


    Josh Vaughn joined the Hendrick Automotive Group in 2001 as a sales associate for Hendrick Acura in Charlotte, NC.  He quickly became a top performer and was named a Presidents' Club Award winner his first full year.  Vaughn was then promoted to finance producer (EPPIE Award achiever) and then on to Pre-Owned Manager (Elite Department) at Hendrick Acura where he enjoyed a decade of success.


    In 2011, Josh was promoted to General Manager of Performance Acura, located in Chapel Hill, NC.  There, he earned the manufacturers top award (Acura Dealership of Distinction) three consecutive years.  Their store also enjoyed the distinction of being named Hendrick Champions two of those years. Not stopping there, Performance Acura was also recognized by Automotive News as one of the Best Dealerships to Work For in 2013 and 2014.


    Vaughn was recently offered a new opportunity in October 2015, as General Manager of Mercedes-Benz of Durham.


    Josh is married with two children. In his spare time, he enjoys cooking, music, and golf.

  • Scott Ragland
    Director of Sales
    (888) 719-6983

    Scott joined the Hendrick Team in February of 2018, but is no stranger to the automotive industry. He has been in the industry for nearly 25 years, working for a few different luxury brands, but says Mercedes-Benz is by far his favorite.

    Scott is a native of Ohio and lived there most of his life, besides his brief 6 year stint on the west coast. He says he loves the east coast so far, particularly for the culture. Before Scott entered the car industry, he trained Arabian Show Horses, but he decided that wasn't where he wanted to be for the rest of his life, so he convinced his brother to give him a job working for him in a dealership, and hasn't looked back.

    Scott has a beautiful wife, Kate, and two wonderful daughters. His oldest just graduated from Miami of Ohio, and his youngest is a senior at a university in Pennsylvania. Scott claims he's not that interesting of a person outside of work, but we think otherwise. He loves the Browns and the Cavaliers, so much so that according to his youngest, he got pretty emotional over the Cavs winning the championship. He knows an abnormal amount of Ohio trivia, and him and his wife enjoy cooking out, trying craft beer, and going out to dinner, so he loves to try anything new and local.

  • Ryan Gury
    Pre-Owned Sales Manager
    (888) 719-6983

    Ryan was born in Raleigh, and has lived here most of his life, so he hasn't wandered far from home. He's got a tremendous passion for cars, which led him to join the industry as soon as he graduated high school, and he knew he was home. He's been with the brand for over six years. He's just about done it all; he's been a sales associate, Product Concierge, Inventory Manager, and now a Pre-Owned Sales Manager.

    He stays incredibly busy outside of work. He loves rock climbing, hiking with his dog Lucy, trivia on Tuesdays, spending time at the beach, and trying craft beer. His new favorite is working on his Raptor. When he was asked to tell us about his favorite Mercedes-Benz, he couldn't choose between the E63 Wagon and the 6x6 G Wagon. Both solid choices; we couldn't pick between them either.

  • Daniel Scarlett
    Business Manager
    (888) 719-6983

    Daniel Scarlett joined the Hendrick Team in August of 2017 on a recommendation from mutual friends of Josh Vaughn. He joined as a Floor Manager, but quickly promoted to a member of the finance team. He's no stranger to the car industry, having previously working for a dealership in Burlington for a few years. This is his first time in the luxury brand, and says he's never going back. He's always enjoyed automobiles and their history, and with Mercedes-Benz having such a rich background, he's thoroughly enjoyed being around the brand. His favorite Mercedes-Benz is the GTS because of all the horses and the design. I mean, have you seen it yet?

    Daniel is a huge family man, and his family is incredibly important to him. He tries to stay as close to his family as possible, always making an effort to spend time with them on his days off. He recently moved to downtown Raleigh, and loves living in the middle of the city. As a self-proclaimed foodie, he dines out any chance he gets, especially when a new restaurant pops up. He spends a lot of his time goofing off and exploring Raleigh. Daniel enjoys sports, playing pickup basketball in his spare time with his buddies, he thoroughly enjoys golf, making it a point to go play a round quite often, and even though he's from North Carolina, he's a die-hard New England Patriots fan.

  • Doug Benton
    Parts Manager
    (888) 719-6983



    Doug is a golfing enthusiast, to the point of obsession, some might say. 


    Recently, Doug joined the Mercedes-Benz of Durham team in the Joe Lomax charity golf tournament hosted by Micheal and Son. We all got to witness to power of his pink shirt first hand. His golf game was OK, too.

    Doug's primary role as the internal technician is to service any pre-owned vehicles before they hit the lot for sale. There is tremendous value in having someone dedicated to this position, and Doug is the perfect person for the job.

    When Doug isn't at work, he's probably enjoying a concert or cheering on his favorite teams. He's a huge fan of Penn State, Duke and the Tennessee Titans. But most of all, Doug loves golf.

    The Gullwing is his favorite car. He loves the movie star vibe and appeal. 

    Doug also loves golf.

  • Jason Bruzzichesi
    Product Specialist
    (888) 719-6983

    Jason joined our team in April 2018. Jason is a recent refugee from the land of Florida, having finally escaped after living and working there for most of his life. As a result, nothing that comes up on social media under the hashtag #FloridaMan would surprise him...he probably knows the guy. His diverse employment background includes Help desk manager, IT consultant, law clerk, lower division soccer journalist, vet technician, and restaurant business. In fact, he managed restaurants and had to dress up like Chuck E. Cheese-doing such a great job he was offered a full time gig.That resulted in him politely declining and running from the building.


    However, Jason was also a Reconnaissance Marine stationed in Japan and Camp Lejeune, so hard work, personal sacrifice, and professionalism was and still is a dominant part of who he is. In Jason's free time, which he has very little of, he attends to his new home by discovering the joys of yard work and renovations. Jason is a husband to an amazing women and a father to three fantastic children. 

    Interestingly, Jason is a former spoken word poet, photographer, and proud owner of a 1985 Ford Ranger...that is actively trying to bankrupt him. He is a car guy, people guy, and if you ask his clients and coworkers, is genuinely fun to be around. We are happy to have such a hardworking sales member on our team.

    Product Specialist
    (888) 719-6983

    Austin joined the Hendrick Family in May of 2018, shortly after graduation from UNC-Wilmington. After spending his college tenure on the coast, Austin, a Chapel Hill native, was ready to come home to the Triangle.

    During high school and college, Austin worked at local restaurants as a waiter, and later as a bartender. He used his nightly tips to fund his burgeoning car habit. His experience in customer service and zeal for high-end automobiles has been proven to be an ideal combination at Hendrick Automotive.

    A self-described "car guy", he was ready to turn his passion into his career upon completion of his English degree. A fan of German autos in particular, Austin feels lucky each time he gets to fire up the engine of a Mercedes-Benz.  

    His favorite car is the 2008 CLK63 AMG Black Series, ideally in silver, though he wouldn't turn down the keys to any other colors.

I have swam alone with dolphins including a baby dolphin that was extremely curious. I have been on hundreds of rescue calls at sea and been involved in hundreds of med flights. I worked with all branches of advanced medicine in life saving ops. I worked and stayed aboard a 70 foot sailboat. I volunteered and worked after 4 different landfall hurricanes across North Carolina and Mississippi."

Automotive technology moves at a rapid pace, and many of those changes can be difficult to figure out without some guidance, so her primary focus was to teach clients about their newly purchased vehicles. Since then, with some other things along the way, she's now moved into our Service Department as our Warranty Administrator.

    Katie moved to the East Coast when she was twenty-one from the great state of Texas. She's still a Texan through and through. She loves spending time with her two dogs, Jackson and Bella, as well as her fiance, Tanner. They enjoy traveling more than anything, and make it a point to try to go somewhere new pretty frequently. When they're home, Katie really enjoys working out, watching The Office and/or Friends, window shopping, and spending time with family.

    Matt joined the Mercedes-Benz of Durham team when the doors opened in October of 2014 as a Technician, and has recently been promoted into our Shop Foreman position. Matt has been a team player from day one, and it was a natural fit for him.

    Matt was born and raised here in North Carolina, leaving for a short time to go to school in Texas. He's a huge NC State fan, but his number one priority is his family. When Matt's not here helping the team and turning wrenches, he's spending as much time with his family as he can, because one of his greatest joys is watching his nieces and nephews grow up.
