Charles LippertA native of Michigan, Charles graduated from Ferris State University in 1962 with a B.S. in Pharmacy. In 1968 Charles started Lippert Pharmacy, a retail drug store. By the time he sold the company in 1984, Charles had grown the pharmacy to 13 locations with 265 employees.

After the sale of Lippert Pharmacy, Charles had several other successful business ventures including Evans Drug Stores and Lippert Holding Company.  In addition he has served on the boards of many organizations including publicly held banks, non-profit organizations, and hospitals.

Priscilla Carrick
Office Supervisor and Administrative Support

Priscilla HobbsPriscilla just celebrated her one year anniversary at AutoExec after moving to Grand Rapids from the New York City area. She grew up in a small town called Free Soil and went on to graduate from Western Michigan University with a B.A. in Broadcast & Cable Production. The opportunity for production work and the promise of an exciting life in the Big Appleled Priscilla to New York City in the summer of 2001. There she began her career in television working on shows like “Judge Hatchett”, “The Tyra Banks Show” and “America in Primetime”. She has also worked on numerous commercial, film, series, corporate, documentary and music video projects in various capacities.

While New York was a great experience, she missed her family, the great lakes, and the lack of traffic, so she headed back to Michigan for the peaceful and more laid back lifestyle. Being Sicilian, Priscilla likes spending quality time in the kitchen and making you an offer you can’t refuse. When not wearing her AutoExec hat, she loves music, traveling, candle making, film and being a musician. She lives in Grand Rapids with her husband, amid their collection of guitars, amplifiers and their newest addition to the family, a 1973 Wurlitzer stage piano. She is looking forward to experiencing more of Grand Rapids and what it has to offer.
