Professionals in the used machinery and equipment world run the gamut in terms of industry experience, career background and geography, but one commonality these five industry leaders share is a mutual love of cars.
Here’s a look at how their hobbies enrich their lives — and sometimes intersect with their professional pursuits.
Mark himself is among this community. When he’s not on the job, he considers himself a “backyard mechanic” and enjoys the catharsis that comes from working on cars.
In his words, “I love everything about machinery. I have bought some (car-related) equipment from different members over the years and love to use it in my hobby.”
This camaraderie is exactly what makes the MDNA membership so special.
“It starts as a business (deal) and they end up as very close friends,” he said. “There are members that have been friends from one coast to another for— in some cases — all of their adult lives. A lot of their businesses were started by previous generations and then the children come into the business. They create business partnerships and then become friends, and it grows from there.”
MDNA means Community
Whether they’re making a deal or sharing their mutual love of cars, MDNA members form a tight-knit community. Thanks to their common interests and close camaraderie, they share a close connection that transcends individual businesses and distance. It’s a connection that isn’t likely to change any time soon.
We recognize that across the MDNA, our members share many hobbies and interests. We want to tell your story, too! If you have ideas for this blog, please drop a note to Mark Robinson, firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 703.836.9300.
