Kevin Richardson promoted to general sales manager.
The Atamian Family, owners of Atamian Volkswagen & Honda, Inc. of Tewksbury, announces the promotion of Kevin Richardson to general sales manager.
Richardson has been with Atamian for over five years, starting as a business manager in 2005 and working his way up to sales manager and then being promoted to this position. A lifelong resident of Lowell, MA, Richardson got into the auto business at the age of 18 and knew it was where he belonged. As the general sales manager, Richardson is tasked with not only managing the sales department, but also increasing sales overall for the dealership. “It is a pleasure to work for a company that has supported my growth throughout my career. I look forward for many more years with Atamian.” Terry Atamian, president of Atamian Volkswagen and Honda Inc., expressed how important it is to him to promote from within.
“We have always prided ourselves on recognizing the strengths of individuals in the company and working with those strengths to grow each employee,” he said. “Kevin is a prime example of someone whose dedication, knowledge and skill set was a true asset to the dealerships and we’re proud to see how he has grown in the past five years.”
The Volkswagen and Honda franchises are operated at 150 Main St. in Tewksbury, occupying land from Route 38 to I- 495. It remains a family business with Bob Atamian as Dealer Principle since 1968. Bob has since been joined by his sons Robby and Terry and by his grandson Benjamin, who represents the fourth generation of Atamians in the business. The Atamian family has also long been active in numerous community and charitable activities throughout the years. Local organizations benefiting from Atamian Family sponsorships include the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, The Genesis Fund, The Boys & Girls Club, The Tewksbury Patriotic Activities Committee, T.H.E. FARM Tewksbury, Tewksbury Police Athletic League, The Highland Sports Association of Lowell, Tewksbury Youth Skating Association, Tewksbury Youth Soccer League and Tewksbury Youth Baseball and Girls Softball.
