Cortese Auto Group was founded in 1975 by Patrick Cortese. Pat got his start in the car business washing GTOs, Bonnevilles, and Tempests at Ralph Pontiac in the early 1960s. Pat loved the stylish American classics, and he jumped when a sales position opened up. He brought his love of cars to the sales transaction, and focused on making the buying experience fun and exciting for the customer. Cortese Dodge was the first Cortese Auto Group dealership and we have grown to include Chrysler, Jeep, Ram, Lincoln, Mitsubishi, Ford and Cortese Imports.

Pat's sales philosophy and business ethic is carried on by his son John Cortese. John learned at an early age how much fun the job can be, and he could not see himself doing anything else. John began working for his father and in his early teens became a lot boy, parking and moving cars around the dealership. In 1994 John convinced his father to let him run the Dodge store, a big undertaking for a 25-year-old. The gamble paid off, and the dealership soon experienced some of its most successful years.
