EDINA, Minn. — Walser Automotive Group announced this week that it has completed the acquisition of Wichita Luxury Collection (WLC). WLC will add 10 luxury brands — which include Acura, Audi, BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, Lexus, Mercedes-Benz, MINI, Porsche and AMG — to Walser's existing 15 franchises, according to the company.
"The Wichita Luxury Collection offers a unique luxury experience unlike any other in the retail automotive arena," said Paul and Andrew Walser, CEOs of Walser Automotive Group. "We're grateful that the city of Wichita has welcomed us. All of these outstanding franchises are new to Walser, so we're excited to offer a much greater selection to both our current and future customers."
Bobby Cuillo will remain managing partner of WLC and will run daily operations, customer vendor and manufacturer relationships, according to the company. He will also be responsible for growing the luxury collection brand in and outside of Wichita.
The other partners of WLC will be retiring.
"We are very fortunate that all of our manufacturers have embraced Walser and are excited for this next chapter in the history of our exciting growth," Cuillo said. "This was a natural fit for us, since both Walser Automotive Group and Wichita Luxury Collection have an extraordinary commitment to customer and employee satisfaction. Once again, we will raise the bar on a true luxury experience."
