        At Subaru of Wichita the key to our success has been due in large part to our Team of People and the Processes we have created as that team.  Most of our co-workers come from outside of the Car Business,  generally from some form of Customer Service Background.  You won't find the typical gold-chain or plaid-suit wearing salespeople here.    We hire nice, friendly, and smart people who genuinely care about providing an amazing experience for our customers.  We feel we have assembled the best Team of People anywhere in the country.

  • Tom White, Jr.
    General Manager (aka Super Genius and Mastermind of Possibilities)

    Over the past 15 years, Tom White Jr. has built a reputation as a savvy and hard charging retail automotive executive. He has worked in virtually every department in a Dealership although not handy enough to work as a technician. Tom regularly consults with Dealers all over the country on a variety of topics including General Management, Sales Management, Internet Lead Generation, Social Media and the Social Web, Dealership Reputation Management, Website Marketing and Optimization, and Legal Compliance. He is also a regular contributor at many of the top automotive conferences and twenty group meetings.

    As the General Manager for Suzuki of Wichita, Tom helped lead the team to five consecutive years at the #1 selling spot in America. The Suzuki of Wichita website www.RideHomeHappy.com was recognized as one of the Top 5 Best Dealership Websites for 2010 by Auto Dealer Monthly magazine.

    In addition to his role as GM of Subaru of Wichita, Tom serves as the Operating Partner of AutoApproved.com, an Internet Lead Generation and Website Design company also based in Wichita, KS. 

    Prior to the Car Business Tom worked in the Food Service Industry in a variety of functions both front of the house and back of the house. He was once the "Rat" at Chuck E Cheese before an angry little boy ended his mascot career with a punch to the groin. His self proclaimed title of Super Genius and Mastermind of Possibilities was borrowed from Wile E Coyote who Tom counts as one of his inspirations - "He'd fall off 10,000 foot cliffs and get right back up again," White says. "That tenaciousness, I think it's admirable."

  • Marc Lee
    Operations Manager

    Marc Lee has been in the car business his entire life. Literally. He started going to the auctions with his father when he was 5 years old, and hasn't stopped since.


    As the Operations Manager, Marc focuses on inventory of all kinds. He buys all of the used vehicles we don't trade for, oversees parts and service, and is constantly researching vehicle market prices to make sure our prices stay competitive. 

    When he's not traveling from coast to coast, Marc enjoys spending time with his wife and two daughters.

  • Tim Bishop
    Chief Financial Officer

    In the car business since he was 15, Tim brings a world of experience to his position. You could say business runs in his blood. His uncles, Frank and Dan Carney, founded Pizza Hut, and his dad was a franchisee. He learned a lot about managing a business and managing people when he went with his dad to visit Pizza Hut locations around the state.

    A WSU graduate, Tim exercises a management style that empowers the people he works with to let their best skills shine. He's never one to brag, so his coworkers have to do it for him--he's a joy to be around.

    Tim is a proud husband and father of six children ranging in age from 8 to 19. His family supports the Wichita East volleyball and baseball programs, and he helps out at Walking in the Reign, an organization offering assistance to Balan, Haiti, and the Lady Bugg House, which is a home for unwed pregnant teens.
