CEO had the opportunity to visit a deep-rooted, 4th-generation family owned and operated business, Eagleson Automotive Center Inc. Our visit was hosted by General Manager, Tom Eagleson. As the students enjoyed donuts, Tom shared the Eagleson history and how the business became established in Olney. He then discussed several key topics relevant to their Individual Businesses and how those topics related to Eagleson Automotive Center Inc. He discussed their five areas of revenue, federal and state regulations, return on investment, advertising, insurance, operating costs, and importance of business location. He encouraged the students to not be afraid to try something new with their businesses as he discussed some of the trials, errors, and successes he has personally encountered in the business. Tom ended the visit with a tour of the showroom, shop, service department, sales lot, and offices. CEO is fortunate to have the support and guidance of such a profound Richland County Business as a Foundational Investor.
