The Feldman Automotive Group based in New Hudson today announced the acquisition of Jorgenson Ford in Detroit, the first Ford dealership in its portfolio and 17th total dealership across Michigan and Ohio.
Partnering with Feldman on the Detroit dealership are Eddie Hall III and Cliff Cicotte, making it the first minority-owned dealership in the city. Hall is the general manager of Hall Automotive Group, comprised of Briarwood Ford, Royal Oak Ford, Vicksburg Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, and Northland Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram. Cicotte owns Spirit Ford in Dundee.
“I’m looking forward to working with Eddie and Cliff on this new store. Our dealership mix will be enhanced with the Ford offering as we expand the Feldman Automotive Group in Michigan and Ohio,” says Jay Feldman, chairman and CEO of Feldman Automotive Group. “Our current and future customers will continue to have more and more choices when considering their next purchase.”
The 69,000-square-foot dealership is located at 8333 Michigan Ave. in Detroit, near I-94 and Lonyo Street. It employs 41 people, which brings the total number of Feldman Automotive Group employees to 1,250.
The Jorgensen Acquisition comes after Feldman and business partner Mark Wahlberg announced their fifth Ohio dealership in July 2021, and the addition of Feldman Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Clarkston in December 2020.
In 2021, Feldman Automotive Group expects to sell more than 40,000 vehicles throughout its 16 dealerships with anticipated revenue of more than $1.5 billion. In 2021, it was recognized as the 49th largest dealership group in the country by Automotive News.
