John Davis is a long-standing and well-respected Southern Alberta businessman and owner of numerous auto dealerships throughout the province.
He embraced a career in the automotive industry, following in the footsteps of his father, John Davis Sr., the one-time owner of Scougalls Garage in Fort Macleod. After marrying his lovely wife Barbara in 1968 and starting a family, John Jr. moved home to Fort Macleod in 1975 to take over management of the Scougalls Dealership.
In 1989, our founder, John Davis Jr., purchased his first dealership in Lethbridge. Since that time, we have continued to grow to over 15 business, employing over 600 people across Alberta. Our business portfolio includes automotive dealerships, a heavy equipment dealership, autobody repair and detail centers and a car rental agency.
John says the keys to his success have been loving his work and surrounding himself with talented people who shared his goals. John’s values of Family, Team and Employee Respect, Customer Service, Integrity, Community Service and Innovation and Growth live on today as his sons, Tim, Mike and Luke, operate the Davis Auto Group in John’s retirement and continue to build upon the foundation John started.
We are proud of our deep rooted history in the automotive industry and while we maintain the values and key principles that have made us successful, we embrace change and innovation so that we can continue to be a leading automotive group in the future. Apply Now

"I have been here for just over two years, and started as a Diesel Technician. Within 14 months, I became the Shop Foreman. The managers were very supportive and were big components in me moving up the ladder.
It’s more of a family atmosphere here, you have a good team around you who listen and care. You have a voice, and overall it’s a very solid place to work because of this. Management wants to help you succeed. I’m happy here. I have been in the business for over 22 years, and this is my 6th GM dealer in my career. I have seen a lot, and I haven’t had a dealership treat me quite as well in my entire career. It’s a real refreshing change."
“I have had a passion for cars my whole life. I graduated from the Automotive Business Degree Program and was recruited to work for Davis in 2015.

It's been fast growing but I have learned a lot and have a lot of good support around me.
