About The Patrick Dealer Group in Schaumburg & Naperville, IL

Patrick Dealer Group History

The Dawson family celebrated over 110 years in automotive in 2017.  It was 1904 in Detroit, when Hanley Dawson IV great grandfather made the acquaintance of the legendary Henry Ford.  Ford's automobile manufacturing plant was located across the street from the bank where he worked. His great grandfather offered to sell used cars returned to the Ford plant, and eventually was granted the opportunity to sell new cars off the assembly line.  

In 1907, his great grandfather was awarded the first new Ford franchise in Detroit- in the entire Midwest, for that matter.  This photo of him standing outside the dealership more than a century ago holds a prominent place on my office wall to this day.

In 1951, Hanley Dawson Jr., took over the dealership from his father.  Twenty years later, in 1971, the family business moved to Chicago to the corner of Rush and Ontario Streets, when Dawson, Jr. was awarded the first and only Chicago Cadillac factory retail branch operation. Hanley Dawson Jr. and his son, Hanley Dawson III, ran that business as Hanley Dawson Cadillac until the early 1990's.  

In 1971, his father set out on his own with the Patrick Cadillac dealership we have today in Schaumburg. Named after his youngest son Patrick, the Patrick Dealer Group was born.  The first expansion to the operation was with the addition of the BMW and Saab franchises in 1981. Of the brands in our group today, Volvo was added in 1991, MINI Cooper in 2001, Jaguar in 2002, Hyundai in 2005, Land Rover 2011 and Genesis in 2019.  

Aside from our brand franchises the Patrick Dealer Group also has 2 state of the art certified collision centers with over 60 years of combined experience in auto body and collision repair to restore your vehicle to its original beauty.

The business has changed over the years, but the rich family heritage and tradition remain as cherished as ever. "Patrick" has been a family-owned and operated business for four generations, embodying a spirit of family that extends to all our customer relationships throughout our dealerships in the Chicagoland area.
