"We work hard to deliver the utmost in service to our customers, and the same will be true as we market to fleet and commercial customers." -Craig Blacklidge

Crown GMC is proud to announce that the dealership recently earned the designation of GMC Business Elite Dealer, granting them the opportunity to market, sell and service GMC’s line of fleet and commercial vehicles to customers.

The GMC dealership, which already offers a wide array of GMC vehicles to drivers throughout the St. Petersburg community, will now showcase the GMC Professional Grade fleet of vehicles as well as GMC Commercial Trucks and vans.

“Becoming a GMC Business Elite Dealer is an incredible opportunity for our dealership,” said Craig Blacklidge, Crown GMC’s General Manager. “We work hard to deliver the utmost in service to our customers, and the same will be true as we market to fleet and commercial consumers, providing a higher level of attention in sales, service and repair. We understand the service and repair needs of the commercial customer for fast and service to get their vehicles back on the road.”

The GMC Business Elite program is a prestigious one. There are only approximately 500 Chevrolet/GMC Business Elite Dealers nationwide, and Crown GMC is now proudly the only GMC Business Elite Dealer in the Pinellas County area.

For the first time in history, GM Fleet and Commercial vehicles outsold Ford in 2014, and that success is poised to continue into the new year. Craig Blacklidge and the Crown GMC staff are confident that this will lead to the success of the dealership’s fleet and commercial business as well.
