Our Philosophies

Core Values

It takes a team to reach the top. At Summit Automotive we have lofty goals: to be the best network of dealerships in the nation. To get there, it takes good people, committed to a set of core values. Our reputation is simply how we embody our core values with our customers. Each positive interaction is another step towards reaching the peak.


We are respectful, truthful and confident but never arrogant. We seek and provide honest feedback and are open to learn from our mistakes and successes in equal measure.


We strive to do what's right, even when no one is looking. We want to gain our customers trust, and the only way to do that is with fair, honest actions all of the time.


We love what we do and approach our job every day with energy, excitement, determination and drive to enhance the customer experience.

Community Focused


At Summit Automotive Partners, we’re proud to be part of such strong, local communities, and we understand the need to continue to invest in the communities where we do business by providing access to funding that will help drive change and build a brighter future for individuals and organizations in need.


Employee Driven

We value high-performance teams, outstanding individual achievement, ethical business practices and a fun and passionate workplace. We encourage bold curiosity, out-of-the-box thinking and a desire for innovation in all aspects of our operations. We recruit the very best professionals from inside and outside of the automotive sector in order to achieve excellence on all levels.

Building Brands

We believe in creating progressive, creative and sophisticated brand identities for each of our dealership groups. We rely on market research and staff interviews to determine how to enter and build a market. But, we also know that a brand is more than a logo. Our dealership brands are built on a solid foundation that includes: brand identity, brand initiatives, marketing support, human resource development and system enhancement.
