He was primary founder and CEO of Volvo Rents of Hattiesburg (MS), a Volvo Rental franchise which became the nation’s fastest growing Volvo dealer.

Mr. Senn received his degree from Auburn University and was a two-year letterman on the Auburn Baseball team as a pitcher. He holds several Auburn records and is the all-time SEC record holder for the fewest hits allowed per nine innings in a single season.
Mr. Senn grew up in the small town of Demopolis, Al. where he spent most days on the river or in the woods developing his love and passion for the outdoors. He currently lives in Birmingham, Al. with his wife, Brenda, and their five children. Brian still has that same passion for the outdoors and takes great joy and pride in being able to pass those traditions on to his children. These passions include hunting, fishing, tennis, running (Spartan Races, in particular) and just about anything outdoors.
Brand Building, Merchandising, and Operations are a few of the areas Christopher Merritt has excelled in during his career.

He serves on the Board of H&H Shooting Sports, Oklahoma City, OK, and is an Advisory Board member for the Lone Survivor Foundation. Christopher is a graduate of Texas Tech University.
