Matt Miles
Dealer Principal

Matt Miles, Dealer for Buster Miles Auto Group, was born in 1955 and grew up in Heflin, AL. He is the eldest of four children to Buster Miles and the former Alice Bennett. Matt grew up loving cars and all sports - including hunting, fishing and football! After graduation from Cleburne County High School, he received a football scholarship to Samford University and graduated with a degree in Marketing and then joined his Dad's business in 1992. Matt has been President of Buster Miles Auto Group since 1986. Matt had always planned to follow in his dad's footsteps. He said, "My dad was my mentor and coach. I always wanted to be just like him. I sold my first car to my second grade school teacher. I have never doubted what I wanted to do. I have always loved meeting and helping people - especially with their automobile needs." Matt loves spending time with his wonderful family, including his wife, Pam! His son, Mim, is Vice President of Buster Miles Auto Group (Auburn University 2010). His daughter, Madelin, graduated from Auburn University in 2011. His daughter, Alexis, graduated from Auburn University in 2015 and now works for Cars.com. His daughter, Sela Bay, is currently attending SCAD in Atlanta. Matt says he is a staunch Auburn fan, but most importantly he is a sinner saved by grace!
