Eddie Napleton - Family Roots

For four generations, the Napleton family has been dedicated to a better shopping experience for guests at their auto dealerships. The Napleton family works to ensure that each guest's automotive needs are met with a commitment to integrity, friendliness, and professionalism. This has been at the heart of the Napleton experience since 1931, when Edward W. Napleton opened his first Buick Service Station on Chicago's south side with a $700 loan.

This includes the family's eldest great grandson, Mr. Eddie Napleton, Ed Napleton Auto Group's Director of Operations.
