The undertaking of the very first Jay Wolfe dealership began in 1954 and consisted merely of four used car lots. Its founder, the late Jay Wolfe, bestowed each used car lot with the same careful attention to detail as the next. The hard labour by Jay Wolfe cultivated and laid down the rock-solid foundation it is today. The four used car lots have since blossomed into multiple dealerships across the greater Kansas City with the same approach as their motto: “Everyday in Everyway, nice people.” The motto itself is evident of Mr. Wolfe’s business approach being as close to in-house as possible by bringing his focused, strong-minded children on board to help with the expansion of the Jay Wolfe Automotive Group.
Mr. Wolfe’s son, Jeff, is Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Jay Wolfe Automotive Group. Along with Jeff, his sister, Cindy Tucci, is the Vice-Chairman. Their combined permutations blended in with their father’s commencement into the realm of used car dealerships, making subtle enhancements without sacrificing the superior quality of each dealership. Alongside both Jeff and Cindy, Dave Gatchell was brought on board. Dave’s title as President and Chief Operating Officer of Jay Wolfe Automotive Group has helped sustain a buyer’s “peace of mind” when scouting for used cars. These collective minds duplicated their successive endeavours and churned out Acura of Springfield.
Every company must start somewhere, yet Jay Wolfe’s commencement was unlike any other. Acura’s very first model ever produced was the Acura Legend way back in 1986. Its luxurious execution from day one increased not only curious consumer’s minds, but production of future Acura models to maintain and improve an already elite performance. Like the Legend itself, Mr. Wolfe’s prolific history helped pave the success story that Acura of Springfield is today. Acura of Springfield’s strategy with selling used cars in the Springfield metropolitan area has continually paid dividends.
