Pat McCullough, President of McCullough Metro Motors, couldn’t be more excited about the a newly-restructured group of five dealerships, formerly the John Koons III Automotive Dealerships. Headquartered in Marlow Heights, the automotive group includes Mazda, Pontiac, Buick, GMC and Volkswagen brands as well as a Pre-Owned Super Center and the largest collision repair shop in the DC metro area.

Mr. McCullough put together a management team that reflects his more than 40 years experience in the automotive business. The result of this effort is a family-owned and operated group of dealerships headed by Mr. McCullough. His son, Kevin, assumes the roll of Vice President. He is a CPA candidate and graduate of the University of Notre Dame and is enrolled in the NADA Dealer Academy with studies focused on customer satisfaction. Carl Gendece, General Manager/CFO, has more than 35 years experience in automotive business and specializes in the service aspects of the operation.

The fourth member of the management team — and its spokesman — is James Brown, known as “JB” from CBS Sports and who started his sports career locally, playing for Morgan Wootten at DeMatha High School. He was an announcer for the NBA Washington Bullets (now the Wizards) and was the host of “Fox NFL Sunday” for 12 years before returning to CBS Sports. He is a reporter/correspondent for HBO’s “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel” and a boxing host for HBO pay-per-view. Mr. Brown has earned numerous awards for broadcasting and was the 2002 recipient of the International Black Broadcasters Association’s Broadcasting Excellence Award.

“JB caps off the perfect team for the management of our dealership organization,” says Pat McCullough. “His ties with the local region and his professionalism will help provide our customers a more enjoyable experience and will solidify the company’s motto: ‘If you’re not happy, we’re not happy; simple as that!’ ”
