Joshua Goldsmith: 20 in Their 20s
Congratulations to Joshua Goldsmith, culture director at Mark Miller Subaru. He has been selected as one of the 2017 20 in Their 20s honorees.
A marketing internship after his freshman year of college gave Joshua Goldsmith a taste for marketing. Another internship connected him with Mark Miller Subaru, where Goldsmith found plenty of room for his knack for the craft to grow. The match between him and the dealership was so ideal that a position was created just for him.
“Coming in to the position I did, it took a lot of time and hard work to earn and gain the respect of people I work with, some of whom have been working in the industry for longer than I have even been alive. Without that respect, I wouldn’t be nearly as successful as I have been,” he says.
Goldsmith dove headfirst into his role and has crafted a culture that celebrates diversity; is more efficient and thorough in its training; gives room for employees to have continued growth and success in or beyond Mark Miller Subaru; and is designed to be an extension of employees’ homes rather than a daily grind.
“One of the most important lessons I’ve learned is the importance of taking advantage of every opportunity you can because you never know where that opportunity may take you,” he says.
“My hero growing up was the tennis player Andre Agassi. I loved playing tennis as a kid and aspired to be like him!”
