The service manager of this dealership Matt is excellent. I wondered in their several years ago and just had a question. He took a lot of time with me and I thought the next time I need maintenance I'm going there--which I did--and never went to any other mechanic since then

Brad Sowers Bio

Brad M. Sowers Co-Owner, President Jim Butler Auto Group Brad Sowers joined the Jim Butler Auto Group back in 2003. As a former technology sales and marketing executive, Brad entered the dealership business with a different perspective on automobile sales – one where technology could improve both the customer experience and internal company processes. That philosophy worked and continues to pay off.

A Business Leader Under Brad’s leadership, his team began a trend of exponential growth and expansion, during which annual revenue at Jim Butler Auto Group has grown 182% through vehicle sales and dealership acquisitions. Today, company revenue exceeds $350 million. Today, Jim Butler Auto Group sells and services new and pre-owned vehicles nationwide through eight dealerships: Jim Butler Chevrolet, St. Louis’ largest Chevrolet dealer and one of the top 15 dealers nationwide; Jim Butler Kia; Jim Butler Maserati; Jim Butler FIAT; Jim Butler-Linn Chevrolet; Jim Butler Alfa Romeo; Jim Butler Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram; and Jim Butler Auto Plaza, dedicated to pre-owned sales. Each dealership has modern service centers and large pre-owned vehicle sales operations. The company employs over 350 people at its St. Louis and Mid-Missouri area dealerships.

The Jim Butler team continually earns numerous awards for sales, quality and customer service, including:

  • • General Motors “Dealer of the Year” four years in a row (2015-2018)
  • • General Motors “Mark of Excellence”: 2007-2019
  • • J.D. Power “Dealer of Excellence,” 2018

A Technology Leader A critical thinker by nature and schooling, Brad is always trying to gain more insights about the people he serves and works with. In 2018, he commissioned a study to learn consumer attitudes and behaviors towards automotive technologies to understand what drives them, what daunts them, and what they expect from a modern automotive relationship. Results of the study may be found here: http://stlmalibu.com/JBAG%202018%20Tech%20Survey%20Analysis%2011-28-18.pdf As a tech leader, Brad and his team broadened the company’s use of online sales tools, which have allowed the company to sell and deliver cars to customers in 32 states. In 2018, the company opened advanced online storefront for its Kia brand.

An Industry Leader Brad’s reputation for success in the auto dealership business quickly spread among his peers nationally, earning him prestigious board and committee positions:

  • • He was one of only four dealers on the General Motors Dealer Executive Board from 2015-2016, where he represented the voice of dealers nationwide, giving input on the marketplace, customer needs and expectations
  • • In 2013 he was elected by his peers as co-chair of the National Chevrolet Dealer Council
  • • Current board member of Saint Louis Auto Dealer Association

Brad’s Values and Philosophy:

Brad always tries to find time to address any customer issues that have not been resolved through the normal channels.

“At Jim Butler Auto Group, we believe every customer is special and that they each have unique automotive needs. Our team matches the customer’s needs with solutions. Every customer receives the special treatment that embraces their uniqueness. We do not ‘cookie cutter’ anything. We are the dealership for everyone.” -- Brad Sowers

Giving Back to His Communities Brad believes charitable giving is more than a good business practice – it’s fundamental to how people make the world a better place. That’s why Brad and his 350-plus employees make time to give the Three Ts -- time, talent and treasure -- to worthy causes locally and globally. In addition to supporting countless local sports teams and clubs, the Jim Butler Auto Group supports these important causes:

  • • Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater St. Louis;
  • • Making Strides Against Breast Cancer –STL;
  • • Bikes for Tykes;
  • • Healing Horses;
  • • Teen Safe Driving Pledge.

Background; Personal Info

A native of Indianapolis, Brad earned a Bachelor of Science in Business from Butler University in 1980. Working in the technology sector, Brad held a variety of executive positions. Brad is part of the Butler family, married to co-founder Jim Butler’s oldest daughter, Michele. They live in the St. Louis area, and have twins preparing for college.
