Bob, owner/manager of Sovereign, first showed his interest in foreign cars when, at 6 years of age, he began helping his father keep his Volvo P1800 on the road to wander, with Dad and his sisters, over the blacktop roads of southern California. After graduating from college he decided to learn the automobile business by working as a technician at dealers in the Atlanta area. In 1993 he went independent, setting up shop in a rented facility in "downtown" Roswell. As business grew he needed more room. The current facility on Old Ellis Pointe was built in 1999 to Bob's specifications.
