Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) May 19, 2014
For over 45 years Patterson Automotive Group has owned and operated Patterson Toyota. The Pattersons are now passing the baton to auto industry veteran Scott McCorkle of Charlotte, North Carolina. Both parties worked together to reach a business-friendly agreement to ensure a smooth transition for both employees and the community. McCorkle, who currently owns Liberty Buick GMC in Charlotte and Matthews, will re-brand Patterson Toyota Scion to Mount Airy Toyota Scion.
“I want to congratulate Dick, Paul, Richard and their families for their dedication and long tenure of serving the automotive needs in and around Surry County,” says Scott McCorkle. “Their reputation for excellent service and family-oriented culture is what I have been looking for in a dealership. And their veteran staff made Patterson’s the perfect choice! “
The Patterson Family has a long history of servicing the automotive needs in the Mount Airy community with exceptional products for many years. Along with the Toyota Scion dealership, Patterson Automotive Group is also selling their Patterson Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram dealership to Mr. McCorkle.
“It’s been a pleasure to serve the automotive needs of Surry County and beyond with such great brands. We have so many great friends in the community through this dealership. We look forward to continuing to have a presence in this community we call home,” says Paul Patterson.
“It’s my life's work to make the Scott McCorkle Family of Dealerships the best in the area with our state of the art, family-friendly facilities and incredible team of trained professionals,” says McCorkle.
Scott McCorkle has owned Liberty Buick GMC in Charlotte since 2003. His career in the automotive industry began in the mid 80’s as a service advisor for a Saab/Volvo dealership. McCorkle then moved to the Keffer Auto Group where he spent 25 years in sales and management positions before buying Liberty Buick GMC.
“Toyota is the world’s top-selling automobile with 9.98 million autos sold in 2013. I’m very excited to be associated with such an exceptional brand,” says McCorkle. “The combination of this celebrated brand and a great staff makes me very enthusiastic about the future of Mount Airy Toyota Scion.”
