In 1978, Michael Grieco Sr. ventured into the automotive industry when he opened his first dealership. He then acquired Metro Honda in 1995. As the years passed and with the acquisitions of more franchises, Metro Motor Group was formed to handle the company's growing automotive business.
In the years following the Honda franchise acquisition, Michael Grieco, Sr. began transferring the reins and leadership role of the day-to-day operations to his son, Michael Grieco Jr. It was at Metro Honda that Michael Grieco Jr. learned the nuances of running a successful business.
Working his way up from a salesman to currently holding an executive position, at just 38 years old, Michael Grieco Jr. is now one of the youngest automotive CEO's in the country. With his influence, the Metro brand has a solid reputation for excellence and is known for their outstanding customer service. Over the years, Metro Motor Group has added three Kia, and two Mazda franchises as well as Ford, Nissan, Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge-Ram, Fiat and BMW franchises. And for customers looking for a one-of-a-kind vehicle, Metro Motor Group offers Metro Exotics, a store dedicated to the sale of high-end vehicles.
Metro Motor Group now boasts seven dealerships in Rhode Island and Massachusetts and four dealerships under the Grieco family name in Florida. They've been named the #2 Mazda dealership in the country, #1 Jeep dealership in volume sales, #1 in sales of Ford F-Series trucks, #1 Honda dealership in volume sales for Rhode Island, and #1 Kia dealership in volume sales for Rhode Island.
Since founding Metro Motor Group, Michael Grieco Sr.'s primary focus is running his commercial real estate and development company. He also oversees Metro Collision Center, Rhode Island's only "green," eco-friendly collision center in the state.
Michael's brothers, Domenic and Robert, are involved in running the Rhode Island and Massachusetts dealerships. Domenic is the General Manager of Metro Ford and Metro Kia MA and Robert is the General Sales Manager of Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram. They also serve as members of the Board of Directors and are involved in the future developments of Metro Motor Group.
The family's philanthropic efforts are headed by wife and mother, Cathy Grieco. She is the president of the Rhode Island chapter of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital's charitable organization and has helped raise over $1 million towards research. Her altruistic contributions also extend to organizations like the Special Olympics, Humane Society, Home and Hospice Care of Rhode Island, Hasbro Children's Hospital and other local, Southern New England charities.
