Jamar Brinkley is the Founder & Managing Partner of Renaissance Equity Group, LLC & President of The Renaissance Companies, Inc. Renaissance Equity Group was founded in 2015 and is a significant disruptor in the automotive market. Taking all of the elements clients have consistently complained about with the automotive industry and applying the principles ascertained from his over 16-year career with two major automotive groups, he formed Renaissance Cars, The Re-Birth of the Way You Buy, Sell and Accessorize Cars. With his strong desire to be substantive in the automotive industry, Jamar continues to be both diligent and committed to professional growth and development in his automotive career.
Before founding both of his companies, Jamar’s career started with a major dealership group in 2003 while he was a sophomore in college at North Carolina Central University studying to become a Pathologist. It was here that Jamar was introduced to his true passion, the automotive industry. Jamar won numerous awards for his leadership, salesmanship, and client satisfaction. He also became the youngest Retail Operations Manager within the group.
With his determination to take his career to the next level, Jamar worked through the ranks to hold the position of General Manager at both a Nissan dealership and then an FCA dealership. Both stores flourished under his supervision.
Ready for the next challenge, Jamar accepted a position as the Director of Variable Operations of four dealerships in the Raleigh-Durham market. While overseeing the variable departments of the dealerships, Renaissance Cars began to pilot the processes Jamar developed and continues to earn respect from his colleagues and peers.
Jamar is the husband to his best friend and wife of 14 years, Jenelle, and the father of two boys, Jaden and Joshua. Jamar attributes his successful career to his relationship with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and the relentless support of his family.
