Jack Fitzgerald, recently named a Visionary Dealer by Automotive News, announced the transition to an ESOP effective February 1st, 2023.

In the many years in business, the Fitzgerald Automotive Family has established a reputation of providing complete customer satisfaction based on honest business practices and upholding an atmosphere of respect and dignity for its employees.
An ESOP is a way to provide workforce security, that will help employees plan for retirement by receiving stock in the company as an additional Employee benefit. From now on, Fitzgerald’s employees will directly benefit from the success of the company and have a sense of ownership. “This was not an easy path because there were many obstacles that had to be overcome” said Jack Fitzgerald. “Nothing is going to change from a day-to-day standpoint. Our employees will participate directly in the growth of the company, and continue to focus on taking care of our customers.” There are more than 7,000 ESOP companies in the United States.
