Administrative

Blake
Strong
Dealer Principal

A native of Salt Lake City, Strong graduated from the University of Utah in Salt Lake City in 1985, where he earned a B.A. in economics. He started in the automotive business working part-time as a car washer at his father's Porsche Audi dealership in 1976.

Strong advanced from parts counter sales to car sales to used-car manager to general manager. He was the General Manager of Dave Strong Porsche Audi from 1988-2001. Today, he and his brother, Brad, own Audi, Porsche and Volkswagen dealerships, all in Salt Lake City. His experience was called upon by Audi when they asked him to serve on the Audi of America Dealer Council from 2006 to 2009, and for two years as National Chairman of the Dealer Council. He traveled to Germany many times to meet with the Audi AG Chairman and their Board to plan and discuss ways to elevate the brand in the United States.

He was chairman of the board for the University of Utah Crimson Club Athletic Board from 2008-2010, and still serves as a Past President of that board. Blake was President of the Utah Auto Dealers Association Board of Directors in 2011-2012 and served in the organization and Board for many years.

Strong was nominated the 2015 TIME (magazine) Dealer of the Year award. The award is one of the automobile industry's most prestigious and highly coveted honors. Recipients are among the nation's most successful auto dealers who also demonstrate a long-standing commitment to community service. Strong was chosen to represent the New Car Dealers of Utah in the national competition - one of only 55 auto dealers from 17,000 nationwide - nominated for the 46th annual award. The award is sponsored by TIME in association with Ally Financial, and in cooperation with NADA.

Blake and his wife, Cindy, have four children.
