What We Believe In
We believe the key to our success and continuing growth is an open, collaborative approach to all aspects of dealership operations. We understand that our employees and customers are our greatest resource. We create customer-centric environments for a smooth, transparent and pleasant sales and service experience. 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. We seek strategically placed, successful dealerships with similar values for acquisition. Ultimately, it is this unique philosophy combined with our experience that will ensure our success.
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.
At Summit Automotive Partners, our core values include honesty, integrity, caring, teamwork and clarity. It is our belief that adhering to these values makes us a better organization, a company that believes in creating relationships, not a quick sale. By focusing on a customer-centric model of business based on honesty and integrity, the rest of the pieces fall into place. Our core values empower and inspire our team members to create an exceptional customer experience. Visit one of our partners and see how we’re changing the face of the automotive business. Our transparent process throughout the ownership experience proves our honesty without needing to say it.
Our strong belief in giving back to our local communities, prompted Summit to create Drive for Education. A portion of every vehicle sale is given to a fund dedicated to helping at-risk children in our communities, particularly in the area of education. In addition, all of our dealerships are involved with grassroot efforts to make an impact. Whether it’s sponsoring a little league team or an educational fundraiser, we choose events that positively influence our local communities.
As members of the Summit Automotive Partners family, our employees have access to some of the most advanced resources and tools in the automotive industry. Our dealership management goal is to foster a positive work environment, a focus on teamwork and a drive for innovative solutions. More importantly, we understand that our employees are the foundation of our success. Without them, we could not deliver the unrivaled ownership experience that customers have come to expect from Summit Automotive Partners’ dealerships. From human resource development to supportive management to opportunities for advancement, our employees know that when they work for a Summit Automotive Partners dealership, they get the very best.
