    Travis Taggart

    General Manager

    I was born into a military family and have had the opportunity to travel to many places throughout the country. I was a communications major at the University of Colorado, minoring in law studies. Colorado has been my home for over 20 years. My wife, Stephanie, and I enjoy our life in South Metro Denver with our two Golden Retrievers, Ollie and August.

    Throughout my tenure in the Schomp organization, I’ve held roles in many rooftops – including opening our first out-of-state location in Farmington, Utah. Most recently, I filled the Corporate Director of Variable Operations role before accepting the opportunity as General Sales Manager at Schomp BMW, and finally, as General Manager of Schomp Ford. My goal is to help build and grow our team to deliver the best experience in the automotive industry.

    I was drawn to the Schomp organization because of its strong reputation and innovative business philosophies. We’ve created an environment designed to meet your needs, and we are here to work for only one person: you.

    I’m from Cary, North Carolina and I moved to Denver at the end of 2016. I’ve been in the Automotive Industry for over 10 years, working with several brands in the Service Industry. This has given me a view into the industry that few others have had the chance to experience.

    My name is Micah and I am originally from a small town in Wisconsin called Ixonia. I have been living in Colorado since July of 2015. My first job in the automotive industry was here at Schomp – as a Client Advisor at Schomp Mazda. I then became a Certified Mentor / Senior Client Advisor there, before joining the team here at Schomp Ford! Before I worked with Schomp, I was the General Manager of a dispensary in Denver. I spend the majority of my free time snowboarding and working on project cars belonging to me as well as vehicles belonging to my friends. That being said, cars are something that I am extremely passionate about.

    I would like my customers to know that I am a very personable and knowledgeable advisor who takes pride in assisting my clients in getting them into the right vehicle that suits their needs.

My job is to provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision, and I am quite good at making clients comfortable through that process. I am also a techie, so I can explain the technology in the vehicles in an understandable, plain English way, so that clients feel comfortable with it. When I’m not selling cars, I am often working in my garage on one of my project vehicles, helping out a local non-profit organization, or spending time with my family.

    Hello, my name is Aidan and I am originally from Boulder, Colorado. Before joining the automotive industry, I was a route setter for a small chain of climbing gyms. My favorite vehicle model is the beautiful Polestar 1; I think it was a very bold introduction from a company that initially only did Volvo tunes. I enjoy spending my time playing guitar and listening to music, as well as sessions at the climbing gym. I look forward to seeing you at our dealership and would love to talk to you more about your music interests, and of course our great selection of vehicles!
