Sweeney Hands Keys Over to #1 Cochran

BOARDMAN, Ohio – When Rob Cochran, president and CEO of #1 Cochran, approached the president of Sweeney Buick GMC and Sweeney Chevrolet about wanting to expand into the Mahoning Valley, Alexa Sweeney Blackann’s first instinct was to turn down Cochran’s offer.

After months of much thought and many conversations with her family, the Sweeney family came to a collective decision to sell the dealerships to #1 Cochran.

“When we started talking about this, it was really an opportunity for two teams to come together and really take the next big step together,” Sweeney said. “When they came to us, they were really looking to start this one in the Mahoning Valley and grow and looked at us as a second headquarters.”
