AAA Northern California Acquires McLea's Tire & Automotive Centers
McLea's Tire & Automotive Centers, a family-owned, five-store operation based in Santa Rosa, Calif., has been acquired by AAA Northern California, Nevada & Utah (AAA NCNU).
Focus Investment Banking represented McLea's Tire & Automotive Centers in this transaction.
McLea's Tire & Automotive Centers has served Sonoma County for over 40 years. After decades of hard work and ready to enter retirement, brothers Les and Rick McClea decided to sell the family business to AAA NCNU.
"Many companies have approached us over the years," says Les McLea. "As lifelong AAA Members and with over 20 years in the AAA Approved Auto Repair program, we know AAA Northern California will continue to put customers and community first."
The McLea family will remain involved in the business, as Les and Rick's sons, Darren, Brandon, and Reece McLea, will continue in leadership roles at AAA NCNU.
"As a trusted brand, we have always been strong supporters of AAA NCNU growing its auto service business," says Focus' Automotive Team Leader Michael McGregor.
"McLea's Tire & Automotive Centers is a high-quality automotive service provider in Sonoma County. It's a great match."
