Welcome to Competition BMW!  My name is Kerri and I have been a proud member of the Competition BMW family since 2011. I started here as a Business Development Representative while I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Marketing at Adelphi University. In 2014, I was graciously offered an opportunity to manage the Business Development Center.  My number one priority is customer service. I take pride in saying that at Competition BMW our clients are a part of our "family" and as a client you can expect nothing less. I am here to help you with your automotive needs and truly enjoy helping our client's acquire their ultimate driving machine. On my free time, I enjoy going to the gym and spending time with family and friends.

I started working here at Competition BMW in January of 2017 and am relatively new to the car industry. I came from a strong finance background and more recently from the fitness industry. I am a people person and working here allows me to use my people skills to work with my clients, build relationships and make sure we are putting them in the right vehicle for their needs.  Seeing the smile on their face as they drive away with their new car is always the best part of my day.

Jackie Ruggiero, Assistant Service Manager

I started out in the automotive business 19 years ago at Mercedes Benz of Smithtown as a service receptionist / cashier. After about 7 years I became a service advisor and branched out away from the Competition family.  However, I never quite felt at home anywhere.  Six years ago I was given the opportunity to come back "home" and I am very happy I took it.   I enjoy working for Competition BMW because they instill the same values that are important to me, such as honesty, integrity and respect.
