Three metro-Detroit car dealerships run by women are growing sales and service revenue after hiring more women. While women still make up only 7 percent of top dealership jobs in the U.S., Molly Williams, Rhonda Jensen and Carrie Way are running dealerships in metro Detroit. "This industry is a great opportunity for women to have a career. It's just not known," said Williams, chief operating officer of Matick Auto Group, which owns George Matick Chevrolet in Redford and Matick Toyota in Macomb. "When women meet me in the interview process, it shows them that they don't have to be the first woman." Here is what Williams, 45, and the other female dealership leaders are doing to improve the car buying and service experience for customers, especially women, and hire and retain more women in car dealership careers.
