Ohio dealer Jenell Ross on diversity, mentoring and golf

Tragedy thrust Jenell Ross to the top of her family's Dayton, Ohio, dealership group. Now, inspired by her late parents and other pioneering African American dealers, Ross is pushing to create opportunities for other women. For Ross, being a black woman in auto retailing is not an obstacle; it's an opportunity to educate. Her advice to those aspiring to follow her lead? Have fun, don't let others limit you, network ... and hit the green.
