The founder and CEO of WeatherTech — the manufacturer of floor mats, CupFone and other automotive products — has purchased his first dealership.
David MacNeil, who started WeatherTech in 1989 and formerly was a Mercedes-Benz dealership salesman and has worked for AMG, bought Mercedes-Benz of Billings in Montana. The deal closed on June 30.
"It's a brand that he's very familiar with and very passionate about," said Patrick Womack, dealer principal of the store. "[He] owns quite a few of their products."
