In 1947 Warren Germain opened the first Germain dealership in Bexley, Ohio.  As the years progressed, the number of dealerships continued to grow under the leadership of Warren’s son Bob Germain Sr. including dealerships in Columbus, Ohio; Naples, Florida and in Sarasota, Florida. In 1995 Steve Germain, son of Bob Germain Sr., was named President and CEO of the company.

Steve Germain is regarded as a leader within the automotive business as well as in the community and has served on many industry and civic boards including the Toyota Dealer Advertising Association, the Toyota Dealer Advisory Council, the local Cadillac Marketing Association, the Ohio Automotive Dealers Association, the Columbus Auto Dealers Association, the Bexley Education Foundation as well as the Columbus Zoo Association board and Nationwide Children’s Hospital Foundation to name a few. 

In 2005, Steve was a finalist in the American International Automobile Dealers Association Dealer of the Year award presented by Newsweek.  The following year he was named Time Magazine’s Quality Dealer of the Year; an award given for exceptional performance in the dealership and distinguished community service.

Steve has also been actively involved in the Automotive Youth Educational Systems (AYES) program since 1999; a program designed to encourage young people to consider satisfying careers in retail automotive service.  In 2008 Steve was chosen as AYES Dealer of the Year sponsored by Dealer Magazine.

In 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013 Germain was named the Best Auto Dealer by readers or 614 Magazine, Columbus Monthly and Columbus C.E.O. Magazine. In each of those years, Germain was also listed on the Wards e-Dealer Top 100 list, which ranks dealerships across the entire U.S. based on total internet sales volume for both new and used vehicles.  Not only did Germain make the list ranking 5th, it was the only dealership group in Columbus to receive such an honor.

As a family owned company with a rich history of over 69 years, Germain is committed to continual growth.  Germain strives to stay on the cutting edge of technology and is dedicated to offering the most sought after automotive brands with one ultimate goal in mind; to create customers for life.

The A Kid Again Event!

Proceeds from the Germain Mercedes Golf Outing in September 2013 went to help sponsor our A Kid Again event at the Columbus Blue Jackets! Our kids and families enjoyed a wonderful evening including arena parking, food and tickets to the hottest game in town … the Columbus Blue Jackets! We hosted over 600 for this incredible event at the Nationwide Arena this year!!!

    Application

    Interview

    Had two interviews and two different days. The sales manager was very nice but the info I got from hi didn't match everything that the GM said. It ended up getting cleared up before I accepted the position.
