Payne is much more than an automotive business industry, it is what brings families together and help create new memories on the road. Being able to create something and have everyone feel closer together and being part of the Payne family is what Payne Auto Group is about. I love the fact that we are able to bring families together and the community that much more closer to each other.

I have been part of the Payne Auto Group for 19 years, I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration at The University of Texas at San Antonio.

Being part of this business has been in my blood and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. I worked in this business from a porter to now Chief Operating Officer - COO and being able to be part of the automotive industry has made me happier.

I am glad to be a part of my grandfather’s legacy and hope to keep it going from what my grandfather built. Being able to have the opportunity to make families grow together and be part of our Payne Family is something I wouldn’t want to change.

I have worked for the Payne Auto Group for 15 years and counting. I obtained my BA in English and History at Trinity University. The automotive industry wasn't a route I expected to take and it took me by surprise. Putting families on the road, providing careers for the south Texas community and being apart of what my grandfather built is something I would never change.

Upper Management

I have been working for Payne going on 21 years now, I went to Texas A&M and got a degree in Accounting, I have been programming computers since the 8th grade which became a hobby of mine. I love working for Payne because I am able to work in a friendly environment in which I am able to work with what I love to do! For any internet inquiries or problems contact me Ken Scott, and I would be more than happy to help you!

I started working for Bud and his father, wet behind the ears, and just out of college at 22 years of age. I have had the privilege of growing with the Payne family into a Valley wide business. In my 30+ years working with the Group,  we have satisfied tens of thousands of sales customers and millions of service customers. Working with a Christian-based family-run business has been a rewarding and valuable opportunity for me to do my part to make us more of a driving force in the Rio Grande Valley. Having the opportunity to develop a lifelong career with an organization such as ours has been the opportunity of a lifetime.
