Everett Automotive Group, one of the largest privately owned companies in Arkansas, has sold all three of its automotive dealerships in Northwest Arkansas, according to a release from the company.
The acquisition was completed Monday.

According to reports, purchasing parties involved include well-known businesswoman, Johnelle Hunt, and Dallas Cowboys owner and former Razorback, Jerry Jones. The new owning body, RML Automotive NWA LLC, is based in Little Rock and Dallas and include members JH Auto Holdings LLC and Blue & Silver Ventures Ltd.
Hunt is chairman of Hunt Ventures in Rogers, a privately held development and investment company. Jones, a North Little Rock native who graduated from the University of Arkansas, has owned the Cowboys since 1989.

After opening in 2008, Everett Buick GMC of Bentonville has been recognized as the number one Buick GMC dealer in Northwest Arkansas and in the top 15 of the highest selling volume GMC dealerships in the nation.

Everett Chevrolet of Springdale has been the top Chevrolet store in the state each year since opening in 2011.

Everett Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat has earned several factory awards since opening in 2013, including Fiat Chrysler’s inaugural “Customer First” award in 2016 and again in 2017 and 2018.
Since the founding of Everett Automotive in 2006, the group’s purpose has been to be a true family owned and family operated car dealership.
“We love our employees and loyal customers in Northwest Arkansas,” said Dwight Everett, co-owner. “This decision is no reflection on our great team members or the Northwest Arkansas community, it is simply a business decision that aligns better, long-term, with our purpose.”
