The Ellis Family
Jim Ellis Buick GMC is proudly a part of the Jim Ellis Automotive Group. Locally owned by the Ellis family since 1971, the group is now the largest family-owned group in Atlanta. The Ellis Family is a very close-knit one. After 50 years in business, both Jim and Billie have stepped back from their active roles as president/CEO and secretary/treasurer, respectively. Jim Ellis now serves as chairman of our company. Jim and Billie's son, Jimmy, is the President and CEO of the corporations. Their daughters, Karen Black and Kristi Cohron, both serve as corporate officers. Karen's daughter, Brooke Gatlin, serves as vice president of human resources. Jimmy's daughter, Stacey Hodges, serves as vice president of group support operations and our corporate directors. Jimmy's son, Wes, serves as vice president of Jim Ellis Ford Sandy Springs, Jim Ellis Hyundai, Jim Ellis Genesis, Jim Ellis Volkswagen Atlanta, and Jim Ellis Toyota of McDonough. Jim's niece's son, Chris Roper, serves as an accountant within the automotive group.
The responsibilities of these family members are clearly spread out throughout the company, and many of the family members play an active role in the businesses. We now have three generations working every day in our family business. The fourth generation is coming up with seven members. They are young, but we are planning for them to have an opportunity to work with us, too, when they complete their chosen education.
We celebrated our 50th year in business in 2021, and plan to be family-owned and operated for the next foreseeable generations of the Ellis family.
