Matthew Phillips of Car Pros Kia Moreno Valley, California, and CEO of Car Pros Automotive Group, has been named by Kia America as one of only 40 dealers in the United States to earn a spot in the brand’s prestigious President’s Club. Car Pros Kia Moreno Valley is one of three Car Pros Kia dealerships to receive the honor this year.

Selected from the network of nearly 800 retailers, the Kia President’s Club recognizes dealers that have achieved the highest overall sales volume and provided outstanding customer satisfaction. This is the first time that Car Pros Kia Moreno Valley has received President’s Club honors, achieved in its first full year of business. In addition, Car Pros Kia Moreno Valley was named 2022 City of Moreno Valley Community Business Member of the Year.

“2022 was an important year in the ongoing maturation of the Kia brand in the United States, and on behalf of the Kia family, I would like to recognize and thank Matthew Phillips and the staff at Car Pros Kia Moreno Valley for their commitment to exemplary sales performance and top-notch customer satisfaction,” said Sean Yoon, president and CEO of Kia North America and Kia America.

Car Pros Moreno Valley, which is located at Moreno Valley Auto Mall, opened in May 2021 and, after its first full year of operation, was ranked thirteenth in new Kia sales volume for 2022.

“We are so proud of this recognition, especially as it is a reflection of our core beliefs that equally value customer, employee and community,” said Phillips. “Moreno Valley, one of the fastest growing cities in the Inland Empire, has been a fantastic and welcoming community as our great Car Pros Moreno Valley team has built this success. Our vision is to make Car Pros a great place to work, a great place to shop, and an involved community member, all of which has helped lead to this honor.”

Phillips, a well-respected automotive industry veteran, change management leader, franchise retail advocate and EV evangelist, has helped build Car Pros Automotive Group to become the fastest growing dealership group (2021) in the US and the top Kia retailer in the United States. Its five Kia dealerships, including Car Pros Glendale Kia, the number one Kia dealership in the US, were all named to the top 25 Kia dealerships in the Western Region. In addition, under Phillips’ leadership Car Pros was named the #1 Kia EV dealer last year, selling approximately 5% of the Kia EVs in the nation. A next-gen leader, Phillips brings in-the-trenches experience to his vision of changing lives and creating opportunity through excellence, as well as a powerful background and education in organizational psychology, financial management and business.

In 2022, Kia received the most model awards in the J.D. Power 2023 U.S. ALG Residual Value Awards and Telluride, Seltos and Sportage PHEV all earned 2023 Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Awards. EV6 earned a Top Safety Pick+ for 2022 by the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS) and took home Best EV of 2022 honors from The Drive. Thanks to design and performance improvements, 2023 Kia Sportage Hybrid was awarded top honors in the Best SUV category in the Motor1.com 2022 Star Awards. 2023 has been off to a fast start with numerous accolades, including the EV6 being named North American Utility Vehicle of the Year™ by the North American Car of the Year (NACTOY) jury.
