Steve Ewing truly loves the car business. He still feels excited when he turns past the Wade Ford dealership sign into his lot in Smyrna,GA, every day since he became President and CEO of Wade Ford Inc., in 2002. After falling in love with the automotive business in 1982, Steve feels like he’s able to fulfill his life’s calling to take care of people and the vehicles that they love. He cultivates an atmosphere of supporting peers, team members, customers and the community at Wade Ford.
Recipient of the 2014 National Association of Minority Automobile Dealers Innovation Award and the first dealer named by MOTOR TREND® Magazine in the nation to market certified vehicles, Steve deeply values his team for helping make Wade Ford the second largest African American auto dealer in the metro Atlanta region. Because of the way the business is constantly evolving, Steve remembers the incredible work ethic his first dealership exuded and creates the same great environment for his employees and their customers.
