• Team Chevrolet Las Vegas has appointed Brad Cambridge as its new general manager. With 36 years of experience in the automobile industry, Cambridge brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the role.

Cambridge is originally from Detroit, relocating to Las Vegas in 1981. His journey in the automobile industry began by washing cars for $3.50 an hour at a local dealership. Through dedication and hard work, he steadily climbed the ranks, earning the position of general manager last month.

In his new role, Cambridge is committed to improving the internal culture, supporting the community and elevating the guest experience at Team Chevrolet Las Vegas. His extensive background spans sales management, business development, finance, marketing strategy, employee engagement and customer loyalty.

“Team and community are very important to me, and I hope to continue to improve the company culture as well as the customer experience,” Cambridge said. “I am also looking forward to introducing new initiatives that will enhance our service offerings and strengthen our ties with the local community.”

Prior to joining Team Chevrolet Las Vegas, Cambridge had a long and successful career at Gaudin Automotive Group, a highly awarded, family-owned dealership serving the Las Vegas and Henderson areas. His transition to Team Chevrolet Las Vegas marks a new chapter where he aims to leverage his industry knowledge to drive innovation within the dealership.

“Having been in the industry for so long, I’ve not only honed my customer service skills but also developed strong leadership abilities, which I believe will benefit the team,” Cambridge said. “This is going to be a journey that I am excited to take at one of the top-rated dealerships in Las Vegas.”

Team Chevrolet joined the Team Automotive Group in December 2021, alongside Team Ford and Team Lincoln. These dealerships are all located in northwest Las Vegas on Drexel Road off U.S. 95 and Ann Road.
