Ken Phillips, President and Owner of Car Pros Auto Group, was featured on the cover of the Fall 2009 Edition of Major Automotive Magazine, The Puget Sound Dealer: Official Publication of the Puget Sound Automotive Dealer Association and in the article titled, “Doing the Right Thing”
Online PR News – 30-December-2009 – – (Tacoma, WA) – There is no surprise that an Automotive Group such as Car Pros would be recognized in a major automotive magazine. It only seems appropriate that President and Owner of the Car Pros Auto Group, Ken Phillips, would be featured proudly on the cover of the Fall 2009 edition of The Puget Sound Dealer: Official Publication of the Puget Sound Automotive Dealer Association accompanied with an article.
The feature article, “Doing the Right Thing” chronicles Ken’s career path starting from age 10 when he took over his brother’s paper route. At 15 he swept up cigarette butts at the Seattle World’s Fair; and after high school and returning from Vietnam, he started his career in the Car Business selling cars.
Author of the article, Mark Cutshall writes, “Though he says he’s a self-made businessman, there’s nothing random or spontaneous about how he has built his dealerships.”
“In all the years I’ve been in the business, one thing that hasn’t changed: the all-important thing of taking care of the customer. That’s why, whether it’s on television or face-to-face, I like to talk directly to people and have a conversation with them,” Phillips says.
Car Pros Kia continues to thrive. General Manager of Tacoma Kia, Ken Phillips’ youngest son, Nick Phillips frequently reminds his employees that “attitude is everything.” While maintaining a positive attitude and striving for ongoing customer satisfaction, Car Pros Kia of Tacoma just achieved bragging rights to the #1 volume dealer spot for Kia in the state of Washington for 100 consecutive months.
The Kia stores are more than high volume import dealers – they are a community fixture. The ever growing family-owned and involved Car Pros Automotive Group currently consists of Car Pros Kia of Carson and Tacoma, Car Pros Suzuki in Tacoma, and Car Pros Hyundai in Seattle – all of which are directly involved with the community through the Car Pros Foundation.
The Car Pros Automotive Group has also been featured by the Better Business Bureau (BBB) in the Seattle Times as a “BBB Accredited Business” that “upholds standards for marketplace trust – because you deserve to know who you’re working with.” (Sunday, October 25, 2009 A10 News)
