Clay Cooley adds Hyundai store
Dealer Clay Cooley grew his group’s presence in the Dallas-Fort Worth area in Texas with the June 27 addition of his third Hyundai dealership, one of more than 10 dealerships in his portfolio, according to DCG Acquisitions, a Dave Cantin Group company, which facilitated the transactions.
“It’s a strategic acquisition,” George Pero, vice president of sales for DCG Acquisitions, said in a phone interview. Pero, along with Brian O’Malley, a managing director with the company, worked on the deal.
“Pretty much all their dealerships are within driving distance,” Pero said of Clay Cooley Auto Group, of Irving, Texas. “This purchase expands their existing footprint.”
In November, the group bought a standalone Cadillac dealership in Garland, Texas.
The June acquisition, formerly known as Bob Stallings Hyundai in Dallas, was renamed Clay Cooley Hyundai of Dallas.
