Modern Tire Dealer magazine featured Virginia Tire & Auto of Vienna on the cover of its July 2019 issue. Virginia Tire & Auto was recognized for its recent growth and its position on the Modern Tire Dealer 100, a list of the 100 largest U.S. independent tire dealers in 2019.
Modern Tire Dealer — Virginia Tire & Auto LLC has opened two stores so far in 2019, with two more stores on the way. In January 2019, the company opened its first store outside of northern Virginia in Chesterfield, a Richmond suburb. In late March 2019, a store was opened in Vienna. Construction is underway at the store in Herndon, slated to open this fall, and the Tysons location is scheduled to open by the end of the year. The Vienna, Herndon and Tysons locations are in northern Virginia. When all four stores are open by the end of 2019, Virginia Tire & Auto will have 17 locations.
To help support its plans for growth, Virginia Tire hired its first chief financial officer. Kevin Whitton will deliver leadership, direction and management of company finances, provide strategic recommendations to the executive management team and advise them on long-term business and financial planning.
“As Virginia Tire & Auto continues to expand its service offerings and reach, we look to Kevin to bring his keen strategic vision for the company as we continue to deliver outstanding services for our customers in the northern Virginia and Richmond markets,” says Mike Holmes, CEO. Virginia Tire is tied for 74th on the Modern Tire Dealer 100 list.
