The Wood Automotive Group is a reflection of our founder and Principal, Gerry Wood. When Gerry arrived in Canada from his native Scotland almost forty years ago, he planned to continue on to Papua New Guinea to be with his brother, but as it turned out he never left Calgary. Running low on money, Gerry found work selling cars at Maclin Ford. Gerry’s father ran a successful dealership in Scotland, so he was familiar with the automotive industry.
Through hard work and a keen understanding in what his customers needed, Gerry found success which eventually lead to his first dealership in Vulcan. In 1983, Gerry purchased Southridge Mercury on McLeod Trail, changed the name to Woodridge and continued to grow the business. His entrepreneurial spirit and willingness to take chances were a perfect fit for Calgary and Okotoks. Today, the Wood Automotive Group employs almost 600 people at seven dealerships, an online car store and one of Calgary’s largest collision repair centres.
This is a great opportunity to join a leader in the automotive industry. Wood Automotive Group believes in hard work, passion, honesty, fun and sharing of ideas. Every member of the team is valued and recognized for their contributions to the overall success of the team.
