Lanny came to Cookeville in 1985 starting his first automobile dealership and has grown the business into Cumberland Auto Center representing Toyota/Scion, Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge-Ram, and Kia. This growth has been due to his unwavering philosophy of treating customers as they would like to be treated. The resulting customer satisfaction and service satisfaction indexes with the manufacturers are among the highest in the southeast and the nation. The dealerships are multi-year recipients of the manufacturer’s awards for dealership excellence, a fact of which Lanny is proud. He invites the public to experience the Cumberland difference.
