The Tom Wood Legacy

Untitled Document
Mr. Wood's background in the automotive industry started while he 
was attending Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo. He was a new car
salesperson for a Mercury-Edsel dealer. After college he continued to 
sell full time until he had the opportunity to buy a small Hillman 
Sunbeam dealership in Kalamazoo. Within two years the manufacturer went 
out of business and Mr. Wood was forced to change his operation into a 
wholesale-retail used car lot with a complete body shop making up the 
major part of the total volume. He continued that operation until moving
to Indianapolis in 1967 and purchasing Hedges Pontiac, which was 
located at 3125 E. Washington Street.Since that initial franchise 
acquisition, Tom Wood, Inc. has grown to seventeen franchises and a full
scale leasing operation, out of several roof-top locations in five 
cities - Indianapolis and Anderson in Indiana, Lexington, Kentucky, Fort
Collins, Colorado and Richfield, Minnesota.The current franchises 
include: Toyota/Scion, Nissan, Volkswagen, Subaru, Jaguar, Volvo, Acura,
Mitsubishi, Land Rover, Porsche, Audi, Ford, Lexus and Honda. In 
addition to these franchises, there is Tom Wood Rental, Tom Wood 
Collision, Tom Wood Aviation, Tom Wood Outdoor, Wood Group Insurance, 
Quality Leasing, and Premier Acceptance.Although Mr. Wood lost a long, 
hard fought battle with cancer in February of 2010, his inspiring legacy
in the Indianapolis community will long be remembered. Mr. Wood's 
philosophy is Success is not measured by the number of franchises or 
locations an organization has; it is measured by the people associated 
with it. All of the employees of Tom Wood Automotive strive every day to
live up to Mr. Wood's philosophy by making every guest a loyal and 
satisfied guest for life.
