Todd Wenzel Automotive expands with new dealership

Todd Wenzel Automotive Group announces the acquisition of their fourth Michigan GM dealership, Red Holman Buick GMC in Westland. This purchase represents the third Buick GMC dealership for Todd Wenzel. The first, located in Grand Rapids, was obtained in 2001 followed by a Chevrolet franchise in Hudsonville in 2004 and a second Buick GMC dealership in Davison in 2014.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to serve the Westland and Metro Detroit communities,” said Todd Wenzel, “We look forward to maintaining the excellent reputation the team at Red Holman has built.”

Todd Wenzel was born and raised in West Michigan. The son of a GM employee and UAW member, his allegiance to General Motors developed at a young age. After finishing high school, Wenzel went to work for a local Chevrolet dealer and quickly rose to the position of finance director. It was during this time that he had set his sights on operating his own dealership. In 1994, Wenzel purchased his first Chevrolet dealership in Maine and operated several New England GM dealerships until returning home to West Michigan in 2001.

Since his return, Wenzel has established the largest Buick GMC dealership outside of Southeast Michigan and the third largest volume Chevrolet dealership in West Michigan. His commitment to keeping customers at the forefront and the dedication of his now 450 team members has proven a successful formula for growth.

“It’s been rewarding to witness and be a small part of the resurgence of the West Michigan and Mid-Michigan economies.” Wenzel added, “It will be even more rewarding to be a small part of the amazing comeback from an area where selling cars and trucks is woven into everyone’s daily life.” The Westland dealership will be renamed Todd Wenzel Buick GMC of Westland and will undergo some renovations almost immediately to provide an enhanced customer experience. Wenzel will work hard to retain all the long term Red Holman employees and create approximately 25 new jobs in the next year through increased sales.
