Todd Wenzel grew up locally in Wyoming, MI. After finishing high school, Wenzel went to work for a local car
dealer and quickly rose to the position of finance director. It was during this time that he had set his sights on
operating his own dealership.
GM was instrumental in placing Wenzel in Portland, Maine, where purchased his first Chevrolet dealership.
Under his leadership, the dealership took a drastic turn around and became New England's largest volume GM
dealership. He started a successful used vehicle franchise and also purchased a Chevrolet Oldsmobile Cadillac
dealership in Connecticut. Both dealerships were thriving, but one thing was missing; living and doing business in
West Michigan. When Todd Wenzel set his sights on moving back to Michigan in September of 2001, he purchased
Todd Wenzel Pontiac GMC (formerly known as Orson E. Coe) on 28th Street.
"When I moved back to West Michigan in 2001, I knew one thing was certain—I would have the top ranking GM
dealership in this community by keeping my customers at the forefront. I am blessed to have 150 hard-working
and dedicated employees, and nearly 60,000 customers, and will work every day to maintain leadership in the
industry by putting our customers' needs first," said Wenzel.
In November 2005, a new customer lounge was built in the Service Department and just a month later, Wenzel
had the opportunity to add the Buick franchise, which changed the store name to Todd Wenzel Buick Pontiac GMC.
The store has remained the number one, volume dealer in West Michigan.
Wenzel purchased Todd Wenzel Chevrolet, in Hudsonville, from previous owner Serra Chevrolet in June 2004,
Three years later, he began expanding the store by adding a new Used Vehicle building and a new state-of-the-
art body shop. Today, Todd Wenzel Chevrolet offers customers a large selection of new and used vehicles, a hard-
working service department, parts, and a full-service body shop.
In June 2009, both Todd Wenzel Chevrolet and Todd Wenzel Buick GMC were selected as preferred dealers to
represent the New GM. Also, in June 2009, came the announcement of the loss of Pontiac. Wenzel prepared to
move on without Pontiac while still being West Michigan's home for the Buick and GMC line. "We are excited for
GM's future and the future of Todd Wenzel Buick GMC," said Wenzel. "We look forward to providing continued
world class service to all our customers and the West Michigan community."
Wenzel renewed his commitment to West Michigan in 2010 when he remodeled both dealerships. Today,
customers enjoy comfortable, modern facilities designed to enhance the time they spend at the dealership.
Service lounges feature free Internet access, touch-screen computers, and refreshments. Playrooms for children
are equipped with a Wii, DVDs and coloring books. The Buick GMC store even has a staff Concierge, dedicated to
ensuring the comfort of its service customers.
“Our concierge at the 28th Street location ensures our customers are comfortable and well-taken care of,” Wenzel
says. “We want the entire automotive experience to be hassle-free and enjoyable.”
