Terry Lee takes pride in his company’s workplace environment.
Terry Lee Genesis/Hyundai in Noblesville was recently selected for the third consecutive year as one of the Top 100 Automotive News Best Dealerships To Work For.
“There are 18,000 dealerships that qualify for this award, and to be in the Top 100 is pretty significant,” Lee said. “We were the only one in Indiana to be in the Top 100. It’s more a congratulations to our employees. We work really hard to get good employees and retain them. Turnover is expensive. When you have a good culture and you have happy employees, it equates to having happy customers.
“It’s teamwork. It’s finding the right people and retaining them.”
The program measures workplace satisfaction, talent retention and excellent care of employees through a confidential survey of employers and employees.
“J.D. Power ranks Genesis No. 1 of all brands, ahead of Lexus and Mercedes, and Hyundai is actually ranked No. 3,” Lee said. “Genesis has a new SUV that comes out in June of next year, and that will be real popular.”
Lee, a Carmel resident, sold his Honda dealership in Avon to Asbury Automotive Group in 2018. Lee said it allowed him to focus more of his attention on the north side of the Indianapolis area.
Terry Lee Genesis/Hyundai is at 17665 Terry Lee Crossing at the southeast corner of Ind. 37 and Ind. 32/38.
“There is room for four more dealerships. It potentially could be an auto mall,” said Lee, who has a total of 72 acres. “There are several manufacturers that I’ve spoken with who have future plans to come up to that area. If you look at all the growth that is happening now in Noblesville and Westfield, it’s moving up to that corridor.”
