Riley Ford Earns Historic Milestone

Being a leader within the automotive industry is something in which we take tremendous pride, and recently we received a monumental honor that catapults our Chazy, NY, Ford dealership among the elite. In 2019, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo named Riley Ford, a Women-Owned Business Enterprise. This achievement makes us the first and only automotive dealership to receive this official New York State Certification. This honor is a team effort, and it begins with our customers who have made our dealership a hometown favorite since its inception in 1926. We received amazing support from the SUNY Canton Small Business Development Center, who worked with us to complete our certification that took around 18 months to complete. To become certified a Women-Owned Business Enterprise, the ownership must be 51% women-owned, and Riley Ford will now become one of more than 6,000 businesses found in the New York diversity directory. The Riley Ford executive team is formed by President Joy E. VanLeuvan, Vice President Janet A. Roberts, Assistant Vice President Jenna L. Seguin, Treasurer Jane E. Dubrey, and Secretary Jessica B. Hanson.

"The process took about a year and a half and was very involved. But, this will open the door to build relationships with businesses who may have not been customers in the past. We're especially proud to be the first automotive dealership in New York State to receive this certification."

Our Story

Riley Ford began in 1926 and has been family-owned since 1980 when Ronald Roberts and his wife Janet purchased the dealership. Their daughters - Jane E. Dubrey and Joy E. VanLeuvan - began working at the dealership in the mid-1980s. Joy became Dealer Principal/President in June 2012 after her father passed, and Jane continues as the Office Manager. The family tradition continues with more women joining the team: Joy's daughters Jenna L. Seguin is the Assistant Vice President, and Jessica B. Hanson is the Secretary. They also have their cousin Anthony Roberts as the General Sales Manager. Honesty, integrity, and hard work endure as the central values for Riley Ford, and our mission statement - "Making Customers For Life" - remains a pillar of our business. Our dedication to offering high-quality vehicles and providing exceptional customer service has earned us the prestigious President's Award from Ford Motor Company 29 times.
