And remember Where there's a Wilson there's a way.  

Charles Douglas "Doug" Wilson comes honestly by his affinity for automobiles - and his proven success in selling them.  It's in his genes.  
 
His father, the late Howard Wilson, was a highly-respected veteran of the car business in Jackson, MS, working for 27 years as the used car manager for a Jackson Buick dealership, and later showing his business acumen by opening Howard Wilson Chrysler Plymouth on Highway 80 W. in Jackson just after the Easter Flood of 1979.   Doug has been strongly influenced by the example of his father's strength and determination to succeed.
The conviction not only to survive, but thrive in the business, continues to be a driving force in the success Doug has earned as his own business owner and operator. 
 
Born in Jackson, he graduated from Murrah High School, then earned a finance major with honors from Ole Miss in 1982.   During the years prior to and after those youthful years, however, he'd learned to pay his dues in the business, working at dealerships as a car washer, mechanic, body and paint technician and salesman, and later as trainer to the sales and finance teams - years of invaluable early experience.
"I have worked in and around car dealerships my entire life, working in virtually every position." Doug reflected. 
 
He's learned the business from the ground up, which includes experiencing the highs and lows that are a natural part of working in this ever-evolving field.
While his transition into the business was a natural one, it was not always an easy one, with challenges to overcome along the way.
 
In 1988, at the young age of 27, he started Wilson Dodge on Highway 80 West in Jackson.
Doug's own challenges since those early days and through the years, as dealer principle of several franchises, have included not only surviving, but thriving, more than a few disasters.
"We have survived  two floods, numerous droughts, three wars, Hurricane Katrina, tornadoes,  the major reconstruction of Lakeland Drive from 1997-2000, the business interruption of work on I-55 North from 2011-15, of, the 9-11 terrorist attacks, the sale of my manufacturer three times, and its bankruptcy once," he said, adding in jest that only "plagues or locusts and frog invasions" have eluded his businesses. 
 
Since becoming dealer principle and president of Wilson Auto Group in 1988, his Jackson metro-area franchise group has grown to include Wilson Kia and Wilson Hyundai in Flowood, Wilson Premier Hyundai in Ridgeland and Collierville Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Collierville (Memphis), Tennessee.
In 1998, he relocated his Highway 80 Dodge franchise location from Highway 80 to new state-of-the-art facilities on Lakeland Drive to better serve his growing customer base.
The next year, 1999, he was awarded a Kia franchise and, in 2003, added a Hyundai franchise to his growing enterprise, and in 2013 opened Wilson Premier Hyundai.  Further solidifying his success as a highly-regarded leader in the automobile business, he was awarded an expansion franchise for Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram in the Memphis suburb of Collierville, Tennessee, where he built new dealership facilities from the ground up, opening in 2013.
Numerous industry awards have accompanied the growth of Wilson's success in the car business, including high customer satisfaction ratings that are another hallmark of his dealerships' successes.  Doug Wilson has been quoted in the Wall Street Journal, Clarion Ledger, USA Today and other trade publications and newspapers.  Wilson Auto Group has been named numerous times to the Mississippi Business Journal's Top 100 Private Companies and Fastest Growing Companies.
 
A father of four and married for over 25 years, Doug is also actively involved in civic, church and charitable organizations.  He has served as Deacon at Broadmoor Baptist Church, president of Jackson Auto Dealers Association, board director of Mississippi Auto Dealers Association, director of New Stage Theatre, Chairman of the Board of Mississippi Better Business Bureau, board member of BIPEC, Dealer Councils for two manufacturers, Founder of Transformation Jackson and supporter of Blair Batson UMC Children's Cancer Clinic, Friends of Children Hospital, numerous schools and sports teams, missionaries, Neighborhood Christian Centers, Mission Mississippi, Mission First, Boys and Girls Clubs of Mississippi as well as multiple Chambers of Commerce.
