John L. Sullivan
John Sullivan first came to the area to visit his father in 1963. John first worked selling used cars. Since the early 1960's, John has been committed to selling only the highest quality vehicles and providing the highest quality parts and service to his customers. John's strong belief in providing for our customers, in working hard and supporting our communities is now part of every employee's daily life at The Sullivan Automotive Group.
In 1977, John became a partner in Caddell Chevrolet. Then in 1984, John became the sole owner and President. One year later, he changed the name of the Chevrolet dealership to John L Sullivan Chevrolet.
In 1992, John purchased Roseville Toyota located in the Roseville Auto Mall. This new dealership provided a modern showroom, the newest technologies to service our customer's vehicles and provided our customers with a convenient location to purchase and service their vehicle needs. Today, John and the entire Sullivan Auto Group continue to make improvements to our facilities to make our customer's experience easier, faster and not sacrifice any of customer's wants or needs.
Because of John's efforts, The Sullivan Family is dedicated to making our customer's auto experience comfortable, trustworthy, affordable and reliable. John and our family continue to improve our dealerships so that they stay at the highest standards that our customers expect.
John and The Sullivan Auto Group also continues to look into the future for new opportunities to serve our customers. In October of 2013, The Sullivan Auto Group opened our second Toyota dealership in Livermore, California. And in December of 2016, The Sullivan Auto Group acquired John L Sullivan's Roseville Kia, in the Roseville Automall.
In 2016, John also made a significant investment in renewable technology, dramatically reducing our overall carbon footprint and minimizing our dependency on municipal energy supplies. With extensive solar panel array utilization, Climate Wizard management systems, LED lighting indoors and outdoors, and continued commitment to hybrid, electric & hydrogen-cell vehicles, The Sullivan Auto Group is committed to protecting the environment for us all.
With changes in technology, especially the Internet, John and our family realize that our customers have many choices when it comes to purchasing and servicing their vehicles.
