VIP Sales Team

Meet our Harry Robinson Buick GMC VIP Sales team.


Steve Hatwig is our newest team member.

 Hi my name is Steve Hatwig. I have lived in Fort Smith all my life. I am married to my beautiful wife Angela. We have one son, Alex who is a freshman at the University of Central Arkansas in Conway. I have been in the car business for over 10 years. I enjoy meeting new people, and in my spare time I love to fish, play golf and spend time with my family.

Jerry Corley is our Mr. Adventure.

My name is Jerry Corley and I’m honored to have started my career in the automotive industry with Harry Robinson Buick GMC. I love meeting people & finding solutions to their automotive needs. It’s my desire to exceed your expectations when it comes to your car or truck buying experience and I will work hard to earn your business. I grew up in Fort Smith, graduated from Southside High School, and learned to call the Hogs from a young age. I’ve been married for 19 years to my lovely wife Katie and have three sons. I was previously a public safety officer in Arkansas, worked as a broadcast radio announcer in the early 1990’s, and I’m an FAA certified commercial pilot and former flight instructor. I also enjoy vegetable gardening and woodworking and have my own YouTube channel dedicated to posting videos on those topics.

Deanna Thornburg is our thoughtful one, she always asks if anyone wants anything when she goes to the store. So nice. 🙂

I’m so excited to be a part of the BDC/Internet Sales Team! It was time for a career change for me, so I’m new to the auto sales industry. I absolutely love it! I’m from Roland, OK, and I’ve been married to my husband Michael for 5 ½ years. I also have a 13 year old step daughter, Madison. I love shopping, concerts, and sporting events.

Drew Waack has the best last name. 🙂

I have lived in the Fort Smith area since 1990, a graduate of Southside High School and The University of Arkansas-Fort Smith. I am currently working on my Bachelor’s in Business Administration through John Brown University. I have been blessed with an amazing wife and four wonderful children, 3 sons and 1 daughter, who most of my time is devoted to. I spend a lot of time at soccer, basketball, and volleyball games watching my kids do what they love. I am also a board member and the recreational director for Fort Smith Express Soccer and coach basketball at the Boys and Girls Club. Whenever my wife and I are not busy with the kids we enjoy getting out and playing golf, going to the lake, and other activities. I am very pleased to be working here at Harry Robinson Buick GMC as their business model is very pro-customer based and that is how I believe businesses should be. I look forward to the opportunity to serve you in your search for a vehicle that fits your needs and expectations, and even more so by ensuring that we take care of you in every way possible not as a onetime car shopper but as a lifelong customer of Harry Robinson Buick GMC.

Marty Phillips is our internet manager & the smartest member of the nerd herd. (which  means he’s smarter than me, the nerd herd has thinned, which is why it’s so great that Marty’s so freakin’ smart 🙂 ) or

I’m YOUR Internet Sales Manager! When you browse our website shopping for your next vehicle I will be working hard in the background making sure you have the BEST experience when shopping online. We keep a large inventory of vehicles here at Harry Robinson BUICK GMC and all vehicles are browseable right from our website! Email, call or text if you have any questions about any vehicle you see on our website. And, even if you don’t find what you are looking for on our website, please call me. I have other avenues for locating the best match for a vehicle you are looking for. Now here is a little more about me. I am a gentleman at heart. I make friends with everyone. I’m a professional computer nerd. I’ve designed many websites and even won a contest back in my vo-tech days using nothing but notepad to design a website. (For those of you that develop websites will know what that means.) I’m a family man raising 3 beautiful children who live with me. And, my wife, Kim, is the love of my life and keeps me in check on a daily basis. I also love riding my Harley Davidson as far as I can get away with and I enjoy playing guitar and singing Karaoke. So, I’m sure you’ll have a GREAT experience with me here at Harry Robinson BUICK GMC when we meet!


If you have any questions about New Buick or GMC or any of our pre-owned inventory please call or text Marty, 479-289-5418.  You can also chat the VIP team up on

He can answer any questions you have about our vehicles, the buying process and help find what you’re looking for even if we don’t have it. 🙂

You can read more about our VIP program here on Edmunds.  We were honored when they called to ask us if they could write about our sales process.

As part of our VIP program, you will also get to work with Chelsey in the service department. Chelsey will make sure you have a driver if you need one or a vehicle to drive while your vehicle is being repaired. She will also keep you updated on your trade value, which I think is spectacular. If I am in an awesome equity situation with my vehicle and I can get a new one for the same payment I’d want to know asap so I could get my butt in my upgrade asap. 🙂

And that my friend, is the VIP Team.
I happen to think they’re pretty darn great! They’re all leading The Secret Life. 😉

Once again thanks! -C
