Meet The Owners

Jim Gill – Owner

Jim Gill is the stepson of Norman Chesrown and is the current president and owner of Chesrown Chevrolet Buick GMC. Having spent a lot of time on the lot when the dealership was still Oldsmobile, Jim found his passion for the car business alongside his two brothers. While his brothers left Chesrown in the 1980’s, Jim continued to run the dealership with Norman until he acquired Chesrown Oldsmobile in 2000. With an iron will and strong ties to the community, Jim was able to overcome difficult times at the dealership and come out stronger and more successful having done so. With the help of his oldest son, Ryan Gill, Jim has created a flourishing business that prides itself on the service it provides to the community. As part of the ‘Deal with the Owner’ experience, you will often find Jim around the dealership or in his office, meeting and interacting with all Chesrown customers.

Ryan worked hard as he rotated among the various departments, learning every aspect of the Chesrown business. After graduating from the University of Colorado in 2003, Ryan returned to Ohio to work full time alongside his dad and has been providing a personable experience to Chesrown customers ever since.
