Our People

R Hollenshead Auto Sales has over 130 loyal employees. Through the decades we pride ourselves in experiencing almost no turnover.

This is a brief sketch of a few of our folks. Omission is in no way to be taken as “diminished value" (no pun intended), or an indication that they are getting dismissed :).

ROBERT M. HOLLENSHEAD, Founder, the Company’s heart
Robert started his wholesale operation in 1972 in Philadelphia, PA. He is the largest independent wholesale car dealer in history, with annual revenues approaching $500,000,000.00. He has profound knowledge of the psychology of both sides of the business, wholesale and retail. Having spent the past decades buying (off the street), selling by hand and obviously in the auction lane, reconditioning, transporting, importing, exporting… to five continents (before it was cool), and thinking.

Robert's thinking has led to many innovations for the wholesale industry, a few of which are:  the first Dealer Trade lanes before there were dealer trade lanes, the first Exotic Sale in the    more...

(a precursor to CarFax), CallaSpotter, LLC.  a remote pre-auction inspection service, and Auction Logistics, LLC., an auction facilitation and transportation company.   From 2010 to 2014, he played a critical role as CFO in the BuyBook Technologies acquisition by Cox/Manheim. 

His extensive knowledge of finance coupled with a keen automotive background makes him a perfect fit as CFO for the nearly dozen divisions in the Hollenshead group of Companies.    more...


Travis is the future of the company and the heir to the throne.  But, that doesn’t stop him from rolling up his sleeves and getting into it.  On any given day, he’s not just in the office.  He can be found in the wash bay, buffing bay,  chasing down a title, or directing traffic to keep the flow of 800-1,000 units a week moving through recon and over to their numbers at Manheim.  You’ll see him in the lanes, you’ll see him on the lot, he’s all over the place.  He has Hosale in his blood. 


Maryann has been with Hollenshead since 1989 and became a partner in 2003.

For more than two decades, Maryann has been responsible for overseeing all admin functions.  She started in the Auto Auction business as a teenager at Hatfield Auto Auction in 1980.  Growing up the only daughter with five brothers, her management and people skills were honed at a young age in preparation for the Hollenshead business environment. 

From employees to customers alike, Manyann is universally admired for her fairness and cool collected demeanor when she’s under fire, and there’s plenty of    more...
