“We are very excited to have the Kelly team join Crown. This is a group of customer-centric, passionate people that are as likeminded in supporting the community as we are."
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (PRWEB) December 31, 2020
The Crown Automotive Group has announced their acquisition of Kelly Subaru in Chattanooga. The Kelly Family has served the Chattanooga community for over 80 years.
This latest acquisition in the greater Chattanooga market extends Crown’s footprint since they currently operate Crown Chrysler on Chapman Road and Crown Chrysler on Lee Highway in Cleveland. Crown was approved by Subaru to operate as a single point in the greater Chattanooga area, as well as parts of Georgia and Alabama. Crown will operate with its current team including General Manager Steve Marlin and Fixed Operations Manager Desmond Hagan. They noted the only difference customers should experience during the transition will be signage changes to the Crown Subaru branding.
“We are very excited to have the Kelly team join Crown. This is a group of customer-centric, passionate people that are as likeminded in supporting the community as we are. Steve Marlin has been with Kelly as the General Manager for almost 9 years and has done a great job of leading this team,” says Jim Myers, President and Chief Operating Officer of Crown. “We’re excited to expand our presence in the Chattanooga area and continue the growth of this dealership as an important part of our award winning group.”
Tim Kelly, previous owner of Subaru Kelly, states that the dealership has been a very special chapter in his life, and he’s looking forward to becoming a customer at Crown Subaru.
This dealership is the third Crown has established in Tennessee and the 22nd addition to the group. For more information about the acquisition, visit Crowncars.com.
