In 1992, Mark Williams bought a struggling dealership, known as Beechmont Ford. From the beginning, his philosophy was simple, if you treat your employees and customers with respect and honesty, they will stay with you; that philosophy has served them well. In 1992, Beechmont Ford was ranked 16 out of 16 local Ford dealers in sales. They slowly crept out of 16th to #1 from 1998 and have remained there ever since! Although there have been ups and downs in the business environment, Mark has always stayed true to the dealership, his family and their goals.
Beechmont Ford, at the time of Mark's purchase had a total of 40 employees. Today, Beechmont Ford has over 100 employees and 35% of the original employees are still proudly there today.
In 1992, Beechmont Ford sat on 4 acres; today it sits on more than 14 acres. Those acres are filled with a larger dealership, a body shop and at it's height over 1200 new and used vehicles.
Beechmont Ford has been awarded many of Ford's highest honors. The most significant of them all, is Ford's Triple Crown! The Triple Crown represents outstanding customer service while maintaining the highest level of volume. In 2012, only 20 Ford dealerships received this honor, out of nearly 4000 dealerships!! The President's Award represents an overall sales and service satisfaction by the customer and sales performance as well. Yearly, only 340 dealerships are awarded this high honor. Beechmont Ford has received President's Award 11 times and has ranked in the top 100 the last 3 years! This past year Beechmont Ford ranks 57th in the entire nation for sales and #1 in both sales and customer satisfaction in the Cincinnati region!
