DeVere Boyd is Senior Vice President of National Business Brokers’ Midwest Region. He has been with the firm for over 17 years and has been personally involved in more than 100 transactions. Mr. Boyd brings a lifetime of automobile industry experience to the firm having been just 8 years old when he started helping at the Dodge dealership that employed his father in Muskegon, Michigan back in the 1960s. Since then, he has worked in all sectors of the business and, as such, brought a wealth of varied expertise to the firm.
Prior to NBB, Mr. Boyd held numerous leadership positions across multiple brands including Mercedes-Benz, SAAB, Oldsmobile, Buick, Cadillac, Chrysler, Dodge, BMW, GMC, Plymouth, Pontiac, Nissan and Mitsubishi. Mr. Boyd has expertise in finance and insurance, as a General Manager, and as a luxury brand operator out on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina with the Penske organization. Mr. Boyd acquired land in nearby Bluffton and built a new dealership there for Penske’s Pontiac, Buick, GMC and BMW brands.
A true industry lifer, Mr. Boyd spent countless hours in the early years plowing snow from his uncle’s Ford Lincoln Mercury dealership, scrubbing service department floors and becoming a certified mechanic. He attended the Chrysler Dealer’s Son Training program and served on the very first Customer Satisfaction Advisory Board for Chrysler and then later the Mercedes-Benz Product Advisory Team.
Mr. Boyd attended the University of Michigan and is a licensed real estate broker in that state. In 2000, DeVere married his former high school sweetheart Jeanette. In his spare time, he enjoys being with Jeanette, their two children and three grandchildren. They also love traveling together, SCUBA diving, motorcycling, boating and working on projects around the house.
