"My background is in the automotive field and I've picked up finance and banking skills along the way. I love being the head of a dealership because for me this is where the fun is. Where else could I meet so many people, hire and manage good co-workers, or look forward to going to work each day? I'll keep at this business until I'm too old, or too tired, and I'm not feeling either of those now."
Seated behind a beautiful desk in his tastefully appointed office, Jerry Holz speaks about the secret of his success: Find good people to hire, pay them and treat them well, and you'll keep them. The car business is extremely people-oriented, and nothing hurts more than high turnover of personnel. We pride ourselves on long term employees. This transfers to our way of treating the customer. We have sold and serviced vehicles to three generations of family members. The loyalty shown by our customers has made Holz Motors what it is today.
Jerry practices many other sound dealership principles, such as keeping a large inventory, heavy marketing and convenient service hours. "We have 500-700 cars and trucks in stock at all times," Jerry says." Plus, we are Greater Milwaukee's only Chevrolet Commercial Specialty dealer with many commercial trucks in stock.
One popular feature of Holz Motors is "Jerry's Pro Shop," a boutique-style store located in the heart of the main facility where you can buy everything from scale model Chevrolets, to high-performance, factory built, big block racing engines.
Jerry has a classic car collection and drives his own 1915 Chevrolet in the local parade every 4th of July. He is also active in the Shriners and other charitable groups.
And there's one more thing about dealing with Jerry: "Any car, truck or van you buy is sure to be "Holz-sale priced."
Jerry Holz and Holz Motors have been awarded the Time Magazine Quality Dealer Award an unprecedented 3 times, in 1979, 2005 and 2012!
