Performance Brokerage Services Advises on the Sale of McKaig Chevrolet Buick in Gladewater, Texas

Performance Brokerage Services, North America’s highest volume dealership
brokerage firm, is pleased to announce the sale of McKaig Chevrolet Buick in
Gladewater, Texas from Mark Abernathy to Bill Dickason.

McKaig Chevrolet Buick was established as a dealership in 1931 and has been
at its current location for more than 50 years. Well-established in the
community, McKaig Chevrolet Buick emphasizes putting their customers first
and is a “Dealer For The People”.

Mark Abernathy has owned the dealership since 1995. Following the sale,
Abernathy commented, “Paul Kechnie was absolutely great to work with, and I
would highly recommend his services to anyone wishing to sell their
dealership. He was very knowledgeable, competent, and professional
throughout the process. I don’t know how he keeps up with so many deals and
responds so quickly when needed, but he does! He provided great counsel when
I became a bit overwhelmed at the number of buyers and offers, and helped me
select a buyer that was a good cultural fit for our dealership. He knew how
I felt about our employees and helped guide me to a compatible buyer with
very similar values and culture. It makes it a lot easier when you know your
employees will have the opportunity for continued growth in the future. I
would highly recommend Paul and Performance Brokerage Services to anyone
looking to sell their dealership.”

Over the last 5 years, Performance Brokerage Services has advised on the
sale of over 250 dealerships, making it the highest volume dealership
brokerage firm in North America. In 2021, the company consummated over 72
transactions, marking a record-breaking year. Paul Kechnie, the exclusive
agent for this transaction and the Texas & Midwest Partner for Performance
Brokerage Services commented, “It was a real pleasure working with Mark
Abernathy and Bill Dickason to complete a successful transaction. I met Bill
several years ago and have been a big fan. As a broker, it’s always
rewarding to find a ‘perfect’ buyer for my client. The store was a good fit
for Bill, and I know that Mark and his partners were also very happy with
the outcome.”

A familiar name in the automotive industry in Texas, Bill Dickason’s career
spans over 20 years, including selling over 120,000 new Kia vehicles as the
former Dealer Operator of Southwest Kia in Dallas. Dickason commented,
“While working with Paul Kechnie, I really appreciated the open line of
communication between us through the transaction. I felt it went as seamless
as possible. We have already spoken about future opportunities, and we will
stay connected as I grow the organization. Thank you to Paul and the
Performance Brokerage Services team.”

Dickason’s plans include relaunching Dallas Truck World, used truck and SUV
supercenters with locations targeted for Dallas and east Texas. Dickason
shared, “I look forward to continued growth and acquisitions in the Texas
market with a 5-year plan of 5 locations.”

The dealership will remain at its current location at 1110 East Broadway
Avenue in Gladewater, Texas and has been renamed Bill Dickason Chevrolet
