Founded in 1926 by Andrew Murray, Murray Auto Group has a long history. Over the decades, Andrew’s four sons along with a very talented partnership group and employees improved and expanded the organization to become one of Canada’s largest privately owned automotive groups. Today, operated with the help of three generations, the business is a platinum member of Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies and includes over 30 dealerships, employing more than 1,500, coast to coast. The group sells 13 major brands and each dealership is run independently by one of the Murray brothers, or an active partner.

Every dealership works hard to live up to the motto “Our Reputation is Your Guarantee.” Dan Murray says the company’s success is due to excellent customer service, employing the right people, and ensuring business processes reflect industry best practices.

You are only as good as the people you surround yourself with. Hire the best and train them to be better.

Dan Murray

In the future, Murray Auto Group will continue to grow, striving to become the premier provider of integrated transportation solutions to North America’s business community while still setting industry standards for service and customer satisfaction.

Working Together

With each store operating independently, MNP has acted a great conduit for delivering financial information throughout the organization, as well as valuable partners in the company’s planning process. From delivering tax strategies and financial advice to providing a business resiliency plan, Murray Auto Group continues to rely on MNP.
