Company History

Potamkin Automotive started in 1954 when industry legend Victor Potamkin opened his first dealership in Philadelphia, PA. Since then, the family name has continued to be associated with automotive excellence and has left a positive mark on the retail automobile industry.

By 1970, Victor Potamkin owned three Chevrolet dealerships which he subsequently turned over to his sons, Alan and Robert. Throughout the 1970's, Alan & Robert ran successful operations, and continued to look for innovative ways to expand their father's life-long dream of being the best name in the business.

Applying the philosophy of "Power of Partnership", Alan & Robert successfully continued expanding the business throughout the '80's and '90's. In 1997, Alan & Robert consolidated their assets to create a corporate headquarter base in Miami, Florida, featuring 10 dealership locations and 50 franchises.

Since then, Potamkin Automotive has more than doubled in size and continues to actively acquire & develop dealership locations. With present day operations across the United States in CaliforniaTexasFloridaNew York & Pennsylvania, Potamkin Automotive continues to be one of the nation's largest, successful & respected dealer groups.
