    Kerry Phelps III
    Jack Carroll's Skagit Hyundai
    eCommerce Director

    My name is Kerry Phelps III, and I'm the eCommerce Director at Skagit Hyundai. I grew up in Kirkland, but have lived in the north sound for the last 13 years. I've worked at Skagit Hyundai for a total of 8 years, and have 20 years of experience in the automotive industry. My job allows me to be creative on a daily basis with having a large role in how we market our company in a digital landscape. It also allows me to be involved in the community, whether that be in charitable donations, running our paid internship program for automotive technicians, or with the annual scholarship we're going to be giving away to a local student to continue their education at SVC. I'm proud to be helping our community grow and prosper in whatever small way I'm able to contribute.
