Penske Motor Group (“PMG”) is the shared services entity for an industry-leading, privately owned group of five automotive dealerships in California and Texas. The group includes Longo Toyota (the largest dealership in the world) and Longo Lexus, both on the same campus (El Monte, CA - 14 miles East of Los Angeles). It also includes Lexus of Stevens Creek (San Jose, CA), Mercedes-Benz of Marin (San Rafael, CA), and Longo Toyota of Prosper (Prosper, TX - just North of Dallas). In total, we employ almost 1,300 employees. PMG’s business office is located on the Longo campus.
PMG is currently seeking a Director of Human Resources to lead the HR Department of seven team members, spread out among the various dealerships. This strategic leader will help shape HR policies and programming and design and implement new initiatives. We seek a best practices leader who enjoys getting “in the trenches” and naturally operates close to the business and our team members.
The new Director will also manage PMG’s Wellness and Learning and Development programs which directly affect our team members’ engagement and health.
We want someone committed to maintaining PMG’s reputation as one of the best places to work for, as proven by our over 90% “recommend a friend” and 98% CEO approval ratings on Glassdoor. We love our team members, want to take care of them, and are looking for a leader who will champion this mission.
Finally, we need someone with a strong business acumen who can adapt the HR function and think innovatively to meet the changing needs of the business in a tight labor market and rapidly evolving US automotive industry. This highly visible position will report to the VP and General Counsel and will function as a strategic advisor to the entire senior leadership team.
