Born and raised in Florida, I developed a passion for cars at a very young age. I officially started in the car business when I was 16 years old delivering cars into service, delivering parts, detailing cars, and anything else that needed to be done. I graduated from Northwood University with a degree in Automotive Management, and since then I have had the unique opportunity to hold different positions in all facets of a dealership. I joined Acura of Peabody in 2013 as the General Sales Manager. My goal is to provide a first-class experience to every client. My favorite Acura is the NSX because of the amazing design and speed. When I'm not working I enjoy spending time with my wife and kids and taking the boat out onto Lake Winnipesaukee as much as possible.

Mike Doherty
New & Used Sales Consultant
978-532-9110

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.

We've lost an angel!  It is with deep sorrow and a heavy heart to inform our very loyal customers that Cynthia succumbed to the Lord on October 28, 2020.  Words cannot really pacify our feelings of this loss as she was truly one of a kind and an inspiration to all.  Cynthia earned many accolades and awards, along with the utmost respect of her peers while working for Acura of Peabody, and our parent company, the Lyon Waugh Auto Group for over 20 years.  She was a cherished employee and was very instrumental in our success as a company and just adored her longtime customers.

 

Rest in peace Cynthia, we love you and miss you!
