Welcome Sean O'Brien

Roy O'Brien Ford is excited to introduce our newest employee, Sean O'Brien. 

Sean was born and raised in Grosse Pointe, where his passion for playing hockey, (and being a huge Red Wings fan) began. He grew up around the dealership, and has worked in several different departments. 

Before coming back to Roy O'Brien Ford, Sean worked in bike shops both in high school and while he was attending Michigan State University. After graduating with his Bachelor's from MSU, he pursued his Juris Doctor (J.D.) on a full-ride scholarship from Wayne State University. Sean practiced law both in Detroit and Birmingham, and brings a wealth of knowledge to Roy O'Brien Ford as our Client Relations Manager. He looks forward to helping continue the legacy that his family has built over the past 70 years.

Outside of work, you can catch Sean playing hockey, helping out as a CREW member of the Nautical Ride, or hanging out with his 9 year old Akita, Koty. Please help us give a warm welcome to Sean!

Celebrating 70 Years

OUR HISTORY

History of Roy O'Brien Ford in St. Clair Shores, MI

Roy O'Brien Ford in 1946

A Message from Our Chairman Mark O'Brien:
"Our founder, Roy Edwin O'Brien Sr., opened our Ford dealership on March 14, 1946, with a $50,000 investment, ten employees, and NO NEW CARS FOR SALE! (World War II  was ending and all automotive production was shifted to war munitions and equipment). 

Today, our 110 employees are engaged in bringing our customers the finest in automotive sales and services and our average monthly payroll exceeds $600,000! Grandpa O'Brien would be very surprised to see how much we've grown! 

His son, our past chairman, Roy E. O'Brien, Jr., ushered in an era of mass communication, increased customer satisfaction, and sales levels to place Roy O'Brien Ford in the Top One Hundred Ford retailers in the entire country!

As we look towards our future, our president and general manager, Roy Patrick O'Brien, envisions the new, state-of-the-art dealership that you see depicted by the artist's rendition below. With a keen eye towards detail and  our mission of "treating customers BETTER than they expect to be treated", Roy continues the legacy that our grandfather and father created at the now famous corner of "Nine Mile & Mack!"

Ford F-150 might have a Land Rover Turbodiesel V6




This Ford F-150 might be packing a lot of power. According to AutoBlog, "The engine produces a respectable 254 horsepower and a healthy 443 pound-feet of torque". Their spy photographers caught this Ford F-150 driving around Dearborn, wearing camouflage around the bed – not so unusual near Ford's headquarters. "What's interesting with this particular mule is that it might be packing a Jaguar-Land Rover turbodiesel V6".
