My name is Tommy Brown, and I am the General Manager at Big Spring Ford.  I love helping the people on my team achieve their personal goals and dreams. I grew up in a small community (the youngest of seven children), and I know what it is like to stand next to great people, cherish great accomplishments, and share common ideas.  I work hard, and I love to inspire others to do the same. I have two grandchildren-Noah and Luna-that make this world go 'round.
