The Anderson Story
The Anderson Auto Group was founded by Dick Anderson, a native of South Dakota, who together with his brother Roger, owned several dealerships in the Mid-West. In 1998, after a vacation in Arizona, Dick decided to sell his interest in the dealerships and form his own auto group based in the Southwest.
Dick started his new venture with the purchase of a Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep dealership in Lake Havasu City. After he bought a Toyota store in Kingman in 2009, Dick’s son, Jason, purchased his father’s interest in the business and became the owner and principal of the Anderson Auto Group.
In the following years, Jason added Nissan, Ford and Lincoln dealerships to the Anderson portfolio. In February of 2019, Anderson Chevrolet in Lake Elsinore, Calif., became the latest addition to the auto group. The “mom and pop” family philosophy of doing business that Dick fostered has continued through Jason and permeates throughout the Anderson Auto Group organization to this day.
“I am very proud of my father and the business he founded,” said Jason Anderson, owner and principal of the Anderson Auto Group. “I’ve enjoyed the challenge of living up to his example, offering great products and services for our customers and giving back to the communities in which we do business.”
And the communities have given back to Anderson. The auto group was recognized with the 2013 Lake Havasu Chamber Business of the Year award and most recently the Chamber honored the Anderson Auto Group with their 2017 Ethics in Business award.
