There has been a changing of the guard at Charlotte, North Carolina-based auto dealer and franchisor Sonic Automotive. Bruton Smith passed the reins to his son and co-founder Scott Smith. President and chief strategic officer since 2002, Scott has assumed the new role as president and CEO. The younger Smith has been involved in the auto dealership industry for over 25 years, working in many of Sonic’s subsidiaries on his way to the top spot.
