Meet our Staff

Mark Moses

Owner & General Manager

Our fearless leader lives and breathes Indian above all other things automotive. In fact, Mark may very well be the most knowledgeable and respected Indian motorcycle expert in North America. An avid rider and well-known automotive service guru, Mark was Owner & General Manager of Indian Motorcycle Toledo until 2003. His enduring Indian love affair led him to a position at the "new" Indian Motorcycle Company at Kings Mountain before opening Indian Motorcycle Charlotte. His quick mind and contagious passion for excellence inspires the culture at Indian Motorcycle Charlotte. Mark is the reason America's First Indian Dealer has been a Top 100 Dealer every year since 2010 (when we were first eligible) and the most successful Indian motorcycle dealer on the planet.

Susan McCarty

Business Manager

Susan is that lovely and welcoming person who keeps everything together at Indian Motorcycle Charlotte.  She has always had a love for motorcycles, but her love and passion for them grew more while working for Indian Motorcycle for four years at the Kings Mountain, NC facility as Executive Assistant to the President and General Manager, which also included a fair amount of accounting.  Thanks to Mark Moses, she learned the history behind Indian Motorcycle and became whole-heartedly invested in the iconic brand.  When Polaris acquired Indian, she pursued her other passion and became a Hair Stylist and Color Specialist.  

Recently Mark Moses convinced her that she would have more fun being around motorcycles again and becoming our Business Manager.  Along with doing the accounting and such, she will be the one doing the paperwork and arranging financing on your next Indian Motorcycle.  We love having her as a part of our team.  During your next visit to IMC, stop in and say hello!

 

Larry Smart

Parts Specialist

Larry Smart, our intrepid Parts Specialist, knows how to find exactly what you’re looking for, and if we don't happen to have it in stock, he can usually get it in 48 hours or less. Larry’s been a motorcycle rider for over twenty years, but there’s even more to his interesting background.  He was a UPS driver for 34 years, covering all of Gaston County, which includes Lowell. He’s familiar face to us since he’s been delivering parts, accessories and apparel packages to Indian Motorcycle Charlotte since we opened back in 2008.  Now that he retired from UPS, he was looking for something with a little less driving and we’re thrilled to have him here. If you need something, you can count on Larry to deliver.


Holly Velthuysen

Retail Specialist

 

Our retail specialist Holly always seems to have a smile on her face.  We think it’s because she really enjoys the customers at Indian Motorcycle Charlotte. Way back in 2008, her boyfriend acquired a 2009 Chief Vintage in Willow Green/Ivory Cream from us and Holly began acquiring genuine Indian apparel. We knew her as a good customer for several years. Today she’s one the other side of the counter, helping customers find the apparel and gear they want.

Originally from Detroit and born into a family of firefighters, she worked in accounting for about a decade before becoming an executive sales assistant for  a manufacturers’ rep group. Mark knew her background, so when an opportunity arose, our fearless leader gave her a call and the rest as they say, is history.  Stop in and say “hey” whenever you’re in the neighborhood.

  

  

Joe Hollmer

Technician

A skilled technician, Joe has a great sense of humor and a passion for Indian Motorcycles. He’s been an active motorcycle rider for a quarter-century and attended our Grand Opening back in October 2008. Joe bought one of the very first Indian Chiefs--a Kings Mountain machine with Serial #262. Today he owns two additional Indian Chiefs and chances are he’ll be adding to that collection. 

 

Joe’s spent a lot of time here, so it was only natural that when he “retired” from his job as a precision machinist after 25+ years, he would gravitate towards something he loved even more---Indian Motorcycles.  You’ll find Joe here, working (and smiling) in the service area five days a week.  Stop in and say “hi”.

 

   

 Johnathan Smith

Sales Specialist

 

Johnathan is a solid addition to Indian Motorcycle Charlotte and brings a unique perspective, attention to detail and tireless energy to our sales staff. Over the past decade, he’s been working in automotive sales and new cars, but he’s also been an avid motorcycle rider for about eight years. That pastime led him here to Indian Motorcycle Charlotte as a sales specialist.

You’ll find Johnathan on the showroom floor most of the time, answering prospect/customer questions, outlining specific factory promotions and telling the Indian Motorcycle story. He may not be as seasoned as some salespeople, but his passion, product knowledge and enthusiasm set him apart.
