FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida., January 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Haig Partners LLC, the leading buy-sell advisory firm for higher-value auto, heavy-duty and recreational vehicle dealerships, was McDermott Auto Group’s exclusive sell-side advisor for the sale of David McDermott Lexus and David McDermott Chevrolet located outside New Haven, Connecticut.

The Haig Partners team has advised on the sale of 39 concessions in the North East since 2019.

David McDermott said, “My family has been encouraging me to retire for years. When the buy-sell market warmed up, I decided the time was right to sell the dealerships. It’s been a great deal for everyone involved. I’m thrilled the buyer was impressed enough with our organization that he hired every single one of our employees and keeps the name. My customers and I will miss each other, but they’ll also be happy with the new owner. I would also like to say how happy I was to Alan Haig and Nate Klebacha at Haig Partners. Many dealerships have called over the years to buy our Lexus and Chevrolet stores, and I have sold myself some of the other dealerships I have owned over the years. However, Alan and his team came highly recommended and they lived up to their reputation as trustworthy and highly effective advisors. The transaction was quick, pleasant and I am more than satisfied with the terms of the agreement.”

David McDermott has worked in the automotive retail industry since 1961. He has owned numerous dealerships over the years and has established a reputation as a highly respected dealership. Chevrolet, Lexus, Chrysler and Hyundai have elected him numerous times to their National Dealer Councils.

The buyer was PSD Automotive, which owns 31 dealerships. Patrick Dibreowner and CEO, said, “I would like to congratulate Dave McDermott as he begins his retirement. Everything went very well and I am delighted to have the opportunity to represent Lexus and Chevrolet in the south Connecticut.”

Alan HaigChairman of Haig Partners, said, “The buy-sell market remains as strong as I have seen in my career. Dealership profits are at record highs, allowing sellers to fetch unprecedented prices while offering attractive returns to buyers. I regularly use superlatives these days because we all have to recognize that these are special times. For dealers considering an exit, the terms are excellent. This transaction also demonstrates that Lexus remains an ambitious franchise for almost all dealer groups as we have had many parties who have shown strong interest. We are grateful to Dave McDermott for his confidence in our firm. For those who know Dave, I’m sure they’ll agree with me that his warmth, enthusiasm and entrepreneurial spirit epitomizes so much of what’s special and good about our industry. It was truly a pleasure and an honor to help her.”
