Suntrup Sales Soar in St. Louis

Suntrup SalesSuntrup sales are soaring! This longtime St. Louis-based JKR client is experiencing a year for the record books in every store; and with each of its four automotive brands. “The number of milestones the Suntrup group has eclipsed in 2015 has been monumental,” said Richard Brauns, Senior Partner at JKR and Account Executive for the Suntrup account.


We provide details on just a few achievements in today’s blog, citing these October 2015 vs. October 2014 year-over-year numbers.


∙ Suntrup operates two Kia stores, South County and West County. South County was the No. 1 regional dealer in sales for October – and better still, they were the No. 1 Kia dealer in the entire country in CPO sales. Meanwhile, West County placed third in the region in sales, and finished in the top 10% of CPO sales nationwide.
