Premier Automotive acquired Premier Nissan Mall of Georgia from Steve Rayman, marking its 37th store.
The newly acquired dealership is a business partnership between Troy Duhon and Tim Barnett. It's Premier’s first dealership in Georgia. Premier Nissan Mall of Georgia will be under the leadership of Tim Barnett, who has over 30 years of automotive experience.
“We are excited to announce the acquisition of the legendary Nissan Mall of Georgia in Buford, Georgia,” Barnett said. “We are humbled and excited for this fantastic opportunity. We look forward to serving Buford and the greater Atlanta community.”
Premier Nissan Mall of Georgia’s current team will join Premier as part of the acquisition, bringing their knowledge and experience to the company and ensuring a seamless transition for customers.
“Premier Automotive isn't just a car dealership—it's a company with a dedication to giving back,” Rayman says. “Their passion extends beyond selling and servicing vehicles; they genuinely value and care about their employees and their customers and I love that. This deep commitment along with my past relationship with Mr. Tim Barnett, once I fully decided on retiring at 70 years old, it gave me trust that I could step away knowing the store was in the most capable and caring hands.”
As a member of the Premier Automotive family, the team at Premier Nissan Mall of Georgia will work to fulfill their goals as outlined in its Mission Statement: "Our mission at Premier Automotive is to help all consumers have an enjoyable experience in acquiring and maintaining transportation so they will have the opportunity to experience what their God has called them to do."
Premier actively partners with Giving HOPE to operate food pantries in New Orleans, Kansas City, Southwest Virginia and Monterey, Calif.
Premier owns and operates nearly 40 new and preowned dealerships, service facilities and collison centers in California, Missouri, Louisiana, Kansas, Texas, Virginia and Georgia.
