CMA’s Valley Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram is a proud part of Carter Myers Automotive, an ESOP company. That means that we share ownership with our associates. Shared Ownership means Shared Success, and we go by the motto

“Owners Just Care More!”




We have many associates who have been with CMA for a very long time. Hear from them in the video above why they stay, and what ownership means to them.

Our Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) is a profit-sharing retirement plan that requires no investment in cash by our associates. Contributions to the plan are paid by CMA from any profits earned by the company through everyone’s dedicated work.

CMA is one of the only dealer groups in the country that shares ownership with its employees. We established our Employee Stock Ownership Plan back in 1979 when ESOP was virtually unheard of. Since then our company has continued to grow. We now have 17 franchises in 15 locations throughout Virginia including Richmond, Charlottesville, Williamsburg, Woodstock, and Staunton.

The ESOP enables CMA associates to share in the growth and prosperity of the company and to provide an opportunity to accumulate capital for their future economic security. Our ESOP currently owns 26% of our parent company and continues to see year-over-year growth, with 16.7% just in the past year. This is significantly higher than most public companies.

In addition to our ESOP, CMA offers excellent benefits including health, dental, and 401(k). We invest in our associates by providing the best training available as well as state-of-the-art facilities and equipment. There are always opportunities for growth within the company.

At CMA, our dedication to building life-long personal relationships with our customers begins by building strong relationships with our associates. Because our team is committed to providing sales and service excellence, we must also be committed to providing continuous development and training to our associates. We believe in empowering our associates with state-of-the-art facilities, a wide range of training opportunities, and ongoing opportunities for growth. EOE/D/V.

In addition to career-long personal and professional development, CMA associates enjoy a number of benefits, including:

  • Associates earn ownership in our company through a unique Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP)*
  • Competitive Wages
  • 401(k) plan with company match
  • Medical and dental insurance
  • Short and Long-term disability coverage
  • Life insurance
  • Tuition reimbursement
  • Paid time off
  • Associate discounts on vehicle purchases, parts, and service

If you want to have ownership in your future, send us your resume. You don’t have to have automotive experience. If you are positive, dedicated, and willing to work hard, we would love to hear from you.

*An employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) is an employee-owner program that provides a company’s workforce with an ownership interest in the company. In our ESOP, we provide our full-time employees with stock ownership at no cost to the employees. This offers our associates an opportunity to accumulate capital in our company that can support their future economic security.

Proud to be CMA
