Sales Team

COSMO KOGAN
"Since I was a little boy, I have been fascinated by performacne and luxury cars from all over the world. As soon as I was old enough to drive, I decided I would buy, sell and trade cars. My first car was a $600 Ford Taurus and I worked up to a supercharged Mustang. After graduating school I relocated to Hickory, NC, where I started working at Armstrong Ford. I had some great teachers along the way, including Terry Moore and Travis Chatham who showed me the "ins and outs" of the automotive industry. I moved to Hendrick BMW and Mercedes and sold brand new luxury cars.

After being in the business for a short time, I realized in my heart that I wanted to go out on my own to change the car buying experience. God by my side, I set out with $2,000 cash and a couple of credit cards to open Cosmo Motors. It's been a long, bumpy road with many trials and tribulations, but I have been very blessed."

CHANCE PARSONS
"Hello all, I'm Chance Parsons! I grew up in a small town close to Hickory, NC and I absolutely love it here. Upon finishing school, I decided to join the US Military. After serving in Iraq, I was lucky enough to meet Cosmo. We discovered that we shared a mutual taste in cars. At this point in time, I had a modified M3 and he had a Supra that was much faster (go figure..haha)! When Cosmo opened his first dealership just down the road from my stepdads dealership, his enthusiastic passion made me want to work for him at Cosmo Motors.

In January of 2008, Cosmo Motors was very small with only two sales representatives. Upon releasing one for personal reasons, the dealership was shorthanded. In between my classes I would just stop by and hangout. On a Tuesday afternoon, I stopped by on my break again. Cosmo was shorthanded, so as any friend would do, I stepped in to help before I even started working for this great company. I will always remember this Tuesday because I ended up selling a car. That Thursday, I stopped by on my break and a rush came through again. I sold my second car for Cosmo on this day. On Friday, Cosmo came in and offered me a job at the place I now call home. Today, I am the General Sales/Finance Manager at Cosmo Motors! The opportunity presented to me by Cosmo has been a total life changer. I found a family and a job that I love waking up and going to every day."

JOEY SMITH
"Hello!! First of all, on behalf of Cosmo Motors, I would like to thank you for giving us the opportunity to earn your business! My name is Joey Smith and I am the Sales Manager here at Cosmo Motors. I was born and raised in the Hickory area. After high school, I continued my journey in Hickory at Lenoir Rhyne University where I graduated with a degree in Computer Science. I was a proud member of the LRU baseball team and Tau Kappa Epsilon social fraternity for 4 years. I first started in the car business shortly thereafter in sales. I often bounced back and forth between teaching school and the auto industry. Growing up a farm boy, I learned a strong work ethic which helped me through life, athletics and most of all a team member here at Cosmo Motors. Teaching school, as well as coaching football and baseball, taught me the importance of being a team player. I am a proud father, husband, and family man that lives to serve the Lord. Heaven knows that he has blessed me with not only a best friend but an incredible employer whom I have had the pleasure of knowing since 2011!

Our team here at Cosmo Motors is based not only on a robust working relationship, we have created a FAMILY! Our service department and detail department stand second to none! There is no-one that demonstrates the importance of integrity and business ethics quite like Cosmo Motors. Cosmo Motors has created a brand that stands tall in the automotive industry and I am proud to say that I am a part of something special. I love this place and I am sure that you will too!"

DUSTIN HOUSTON
"My name is Dustin Houston. I started working for Cosmo Motors in April 2013 as a sales consultant. I have always had a passion for cars. My first car was a 1976 Corvette Stingray with a Muncie 4 speed when I was 16. I pulled the stock motor out and put in a 383 stroker with a 150hp shot of nitrous. Throughout high school, I practically lived at the dragstrip. I found that I had a passion for fast cars. I think the stories my dad always told me about some of the older muscle cars he had, really got me started. Beginning my sales career while I was in college to obtain my Mechanical Engineering Degree, I worked at Sears Home Improvement. During my time with Sears, I sold Tools and Lawn and Garden equipment. After graduated college, I worked in the manufacturing environment. I knew sales is where I wanted to be, so I went back to school and obtained my Real Estate License. I sold houses for 4 years and bought a C5-Z06 from Chance, who is now our sales manager.

I feel privileged to be a part of the Cosmo Motors family and being able to experience the growth of the business’ foresight. Providing our customers with the ease of a “one-stop shop” shopping experience and the BEST price philosophy are great qualities of Cosmo Motors. We offer every customer a great vehicle, awesome customer service, and a truly exceptional buying experience. We sell many vehicles out of state. For these sales, I love going above and beyond by making youtube walk and driving videos to put the customer at ease of knowing exactly what they are buying without actually being here. We ship cars all over the country and I love to make every customer a repeat customer. Please feel free to reach out to me directly at 828 244 6427.
