Thank you for considering Patrick Dealer Group for your next new, used or certified pre-owned car purchase or lease, or your next scheduled service appointment. The Patrick Dealer Group has had a long history, dating back since 1907, and we're proud to say that 4 of our stores (BMW, MINI, Volvo and Land Rover) are all celebrating tremendous milestones in 2021. Learn about how the Patrick Dealer Group came to be and our history with the brands we represent by reading below.

Patrick BMW Celebrating 40 Years

As we reach this milestone with one of our pinnacle brands, we took the time to reflect back on Patrick’s relationship with BMW and how it has grown and changed over the years.

In 1981 BMW was welcomed to the Patrick family. From there, the relationship only grew. In the late 90s Hanley Dawson III served as the president of the BMW Dealer council further cementing a strong relationship with other BMW dealers and BMW manufacturers. His work on the council was instrumental in fostering relationships that have continued to grow.

Patrick is fortunate as well to find itself the closest BMW dealer in proximity to the BMW Midwest regional offices. Having such a close working relationship has been instrumental in maintaining the excellence of the BMW brand. 

Patrick MINI Celebrating 30 Years

In 2001 Patrick was one of only 3 dealers in metro Chicago to receive this franchise. Patrick’s relationship with MINI has been one of excitement and growth. Arguably one of Patrick’s most “fun” brands, MINI has captured customers with their bright colors and exciting marketing initiatives that bring excitement to the entire group. This combined with their excellent job competing within the segment has driven business and made Mini one of Patrick’s celebrated brands. 

Patrick Volvo Cars Celebrating 30 Years

Patrick is celebrating 30 years with Volvo and with this milestone has brought about several milestones for the Patrick Dealer Group. In the over thirty years of partnership, the relationship between Patrick and Volvo has been strengthened into a tremendous relationship. Volvo has experienced ownership changes that were not only excellent for the brand but contributed to the success of Patrick and its employees as well.

Our current president, Hanley Dawson IV, sat on the National Dealer Council for Volvo and his involvement has brought about a strong working relationship with the manufacturer management as well as regional management. Our Volvo store under the incredible leadership of our sales manager, Justin Rupp, has won the presidents award for the past five years and remains the #1 Dealer in the greater Chicago land area. We are also very proud to claim the top salesman in the country, Babatola Akinola, whose skill with people is as unrivaled as his sales expertise. 

Land Rover of Naperville Celebrating 10 Years

When Patrick acquired Land Rover in 2011 it received not only a brand but a whole lifestyle too. With an emphasis on the outdoors, together with Land Rover, Patrick transformed their Naperville store into the rugged outdoor facility. With cars parked precariously on inclines to demonstrate the off-road handling power of a Land Rover and camping equipment scattered through the store, Land Rover has brought a sense of adventure to the Patrick Dealer Group.

Patrick Dealer Group History

The Dawson family is celebrating 117 years in the automotive industry in 2021.  It was 1904 in Detroit when Hanley Dawson IV's 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. The photo below is of him standing outside of that first dealership more than a century ago and it holds a prominent place on his 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 on 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 1977, Hanley Dawson III set out on his own to establish the Patrick Cadillac dealership that 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 (BMW, Volvo, Jaguar and Land Rover) 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.
