  • Jay Martin - GM
    General Manager
    205.769.3104

    Hometown: Birmingham, Ala. 


    About: Jay's been with Donohoo since the early days...he has 11 years with the company. As general manager, he's part of the reason that we have such a strong team culture. When he's not working, this father of two enjoys family, sports, working around the house, and music. In fact, he says he "absolutely could not live without music."

    Customer Service: He says it makes him genuinely happy to see the joy when someone buys a new car. And, he reads each and every survey we receive...the positive ones mean the world, and anything less than five stars gives us a chance to improve.
