Mike Doherty
New & Used Sales Consultant

I stumbled into the automotive industry after receiving a degree in marketing from the University of Massachusetts. I was drawn to the business by my love of cars, and more importantly, my love for Acura. The Acura Legend was one of my favorite cars growing up. While I was in college, I managed an exotic car rental business over my summer breaks, and the NSX was one I was able to drive frequently. From there the seed was planted! My passion for the Acura brand is stronger than ever, and it's evident with my strong product knowledge. One conversation with me makes it clear that I love what I do. I love working at Acura of Peabody, and I was recognized by Acura nationally with awards that measure both sales and customer satisfaction.
