  • 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.

  • Sarah Baily
    Business Manager

    Sarah Baily is one of our shining stars on our Finance team.

She's held many positions throughout her career, from Executive Assistant to Sales Manager, and has recently rejoined our team as a Business Manager.

    She was born and raised in Ambler, PA, and has been in North Carolina for 6 years. The Pennsylvania accent hasn't gone away though, just catch her saying "water" or "gas." Through the good, the bad, and the ugly, she's a die hard Philadelphia sports fan, and I mean, she's about as dedicated as it gets. Sarah is a huge advocate for Ovarian Cancer Awareness, and the month of September, she wears her teal as much as she can. Sarah and her husband Wade have three kids- Kaylee, Briar, and Wyatt, two dogs- Yola and Dixie, and one pony named Jack. They are quite the horse loving family, so when she's free, she's usually at the barn or at a horse show.
