Hugh White, founder of the White Family Company, started life as an orphan. For many, this difficult start would have meant a difficult life, however Hugh was blessed with an avid sense of curiosity, and an endless thirst for knowledge. Both of these attributes served him well since his education was totally self-taught. At the very same time Hugh was teaching himself how to survive and be successful, the auto industry was just beginning to grow; and as the White Family Company proves, it was a great opportunity for a bright, hardworking young man. The assembly line was invented in 1913, and significantly reduced the cost of purchasing an automobile. It was only a year later when Hugh opened his first dealership in Zanesville, Ohio in 1914. With the exciting growth of the auto industry and Hugh's ability to learn and adapt, the two were a natural fit.
Hugh’s son, Jim, joined his father in expanding the family business with the opening of a Chevrolet dealership in Toledo in 1939. The number of dealerships began to grow, as did the areas they served. Eventually, Jim's three sons, Jim Jr., Tim and David, all became involved in their growing automobile business.
Today the company is managed by the third and fourth generation descendants of Hugh White: Tim White is the president, while Tim Jr. is in charge of Wyoming and South Dakota. Brother Jim is legal counsel and is heavily involved in long range planning strategies. Dave and Dave Jr. oversees four dealerships in Toledo. Howard Monk manages all of the Ohio stores except for the four stores in Toledo. Nick Tallman and Chad Bolles split the responsibilities as the Chief Financial Officer for the White Family Companies.
In line with Hugh White's philosophy, the company has been an active community supporter and will continue to find new ways to contribute to each community in which we are located to help in a wide variety of civic and charitable causes. As said by Tim White Sr, “We like to give back to the communities where we have dealerships and which we call home." Hugh White had the vision, foresight, imagination, tenacity, and perseverance to build a solid foundation on which the company would continue to grow and prosper. It was said that he had a “golden whistle” and whenever he heard the call from that whistle, he stopped and listened.
The White Family Company currently consists of 17 dealerships, featuring 21 brands from both foreign and domestic auto manufacturers. Our dealerships are located in Ohio, Wyoming and South Dakota. If you noticed the word “Family” in the name of our organization and wonder why that is included, it is not by accident. The word “Family” is used to emphasize our strong belief that all of us who work in the various dealerships are part of an extended family.
We have over 800 “Family” members who have sold over a million new and used cars and trucks over the years. In 2014, our company will have sales of over $725 million and will be one of the top 75 dealership groups in the United States and we are still growing! That growth is due to the integrity, pride, and excellence that have been handed down though the last four generations.
