New Leaders. Familiar Faces.

January 18th, 2023 by

With 2022 ending in the unexpected loss of our leader, Jimmy Ellis and our founder Jim Ellis, 2023 is beginning with many deserved promotions that will help Jim Ellis Automotive Group to continue the legacy started by these two amazing men.

One leader, already familiar to Buick GMC Atlanta clients having previously served as the stores general manager, Ralph Sorrentino has been promoted to a Jim Ellis vice president role. Ralph will serve as the VP of six Jim Ellis entities — Jim Ellis Buick GMC Atlanta, Jim Ellis Buick GMC Mall of Georgia, Jim Ellis Cadillac, Jim Ellis Chevrolet, Jim Ellis Commercial Division and Jim Ellis Ford Sandy Springs.


With 22 years in the automotive industry, Ralph has successfully held many leadership positions at various Jim Ellis dealerships. Ralph previously served as general manager of Jim Ellis Buick GMC Atlanta and Jim Ellis Chevrolet, and most recently was in the role of executive general manager of the Jim Ellis General Motors brand locations in Chamblee. Ralph’s tenure in leadership roles at Jim Ellis along with his dedication to our clients has no doubt prepared him to take this next step in his career at Jim Ellis.


While some things change, some remain the same. Jim Ellis Buick GMC Atlanta and Jim Ellis Cadillac will continue under the management of General Manager Jamie Warren. Jamie has worked in the automotive industry for 29 years and has been part of the Jim Ellis family since 2016. Jamie worked as a used car director for the General Motors brands at Jim Ellis before he was given the opportunity by Mr. Ellis to become general manager of Jim Ellis Cadillac and Jim Ellis Buick GMC Atlanta.


We are excited to see these deserving individuals recognized for their dedication and passion as they continue to further their careers at Jim Ellis Automotive.
