Michael P. McMahon, CEO of McMahon Truck Centers, with locations in North Carolina, Ohio, West Virginia, South Carolina and Tennessee, was named one of six finalists for the American Truck Dealers (ATD) 2014 Truck Dealer of the Year.
Even though his family had been in transportation for six generations, McMahon’s career didn’t begin at a dealership. For the three years that followed his graduation from Notre Dame, he served at a corporate law firm in New York City.
Eventually family ties became too strong to ignore and McMahon moved to Atlanta to begin working at Rollins Truck Leasing. A year later he went to work as a dealership service advisor.
In 1997 he became CEO of McMahon Truck Group, a collection of Mack, Volvo and Hino dealerships that he co-owns with his brother, Brad. Today, the dealership group covers eight facilities.
In the year’s since, McMahon Truck Group has earned several industry awards including the Multi-Million Dollar Parts Sales award from Mack Truck. The group also received Mack Truck’s Symbols of Excellence for 10 consecutive years.
In 2005, the group was named U.S. Dealer of the Year by Mack.
McMahon his an ardent supporter of the Boy Scouts of America, Blumenthal Performing Arts Center, Barium Springs Children’s Home and Touch a Truck, and a major sponsor of the Cornelius Veteran’s Monument.
