Dave Markert

Founder / Engineer

Education: Greater Atlanta Christian School of 2005, Bachelors of Science in Industrial Engineering Clemson University Class of 2011, Eagle Scout, ASE Master Technician

Dave began working on cars in 2007. He utilized his college townhouse garage as his first shop while studying for his Industrial Engineering degree at Clemson University. Quickly growing out of the townhouse garage, Dave opened his first shop in Pendleton, South Carolina outside of Clemson. Upon graduation, Dave moved the operation down to Georgia where he previously called home. Despite all the great opportunities his engineering degree presented Dave career wise, Dave stuck to his initiative on building a trustworthy and successful automotive service business in the metro Atlanta area. Today, many of Dave’s dreams have come true from his humble beginnings in Clemson, but he believes the dream has only begun.

Luis Medina - Service and Repair Specialist | Markert Motor Works

Luis Medina

Service & Repair Specialist

Luis has a great background. Luis became very interested in cars, notably Acuras, as soon as he got his driver’s license. But the first car he purchased with his own money changed his life when he acquired a 1988 BMW E30 back in 2012. He immediately fell in love with the vehicle and BMW brand, sparking his interest in the engineering that accelerates them. He began formal schooling to become an automotive service technician in 2013 with an interest in European makes. Luis was a customer of MMW buying parts and discussing tech tips with Dave since the company’s inception. He went to work for a dealership before MMW made him a job offer in 2015, remarkably without him even applying for the position. We are proud to call Luis family here at MMW as he continues his perpetual quest for knowledge and expertise in the industry.

Nathan Wood

Service & Repair Specialist

Nathan was born in Jacksonville, FL and moved to Roswell, GA in the late 1970s. Nathan then moved to Gainesville, GA in 1992, where he attended high school. He got a Jeep CJ5 during his senior year, only to have the engine later fail due to a lack of preventative maintenance. This immediately prompted his passion for properly taking care of cars to prevent such heartaches in the future. When Nathan married his wife, his father-in-law was already a Volkswagen Master Tech. Nathan credits his father-in-law for introducing Nathan to the VW / Audi brand and industry as a career. Nathan started working for the dealerships in 1998 and maintained a long and successful career before joining the MMW family in 2017. We are very pleased to have Nathan as a teammate here at MMW.
