  • Bob Ryan Jr.
    Dealer Principal
    763 682 2424

    In 1955, my father, Robert Ryan Sr. opened his own used vehicle agency in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, operating as Mid Town Motors. In 1965 he was awarded the Rambler and Mercedes Benz franchises and ultimately was able to obtain the Chrysler & Plymouth franchises. 

    In 1966, my dad opened Ryan Motors in Sioux Falls, South Dakota operating as Ryan Motors Chrysler Plymouth. He was awarded Chrysler's "Pacemakers Top 100 Club Award" from Chrysler for multiple years.

    In 1971, the Ryan family moved to Texas after selling their automobile interests to Henry and David Billion. David and his son are still in business today.

    We then moved to Houston and operated Midtown Chrysler Plymouth for one year until Katy Road Chrysler Plymouth, Chrysler's flagship facility opened. 

    In 1975, the Ryan family sold out to the Benson family and returned to the Midwest, where most of the 14 children, 22 grandchildren and four great grandchildren reside today.

    Fifty years later, the Ryan family proudly opened another Chrysler flagship designed facility, for the franchises of Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram truck in Buffalo, MN and then soon after, another CDJR dealership in Monticello, MN. 

    I would like to personally thank our customers for sharing their experiences with our company at DealerRater, Google and, where we are proud to say that we have over 10,000 public reviews.

  • John Hendrickson
    FCA Certified Sales & Leasing Consultant
    763 271 1800

    I have lived in the Saint Michael/Albertville area since 1996.  After many years of life as a developer & raising 4 kids; I decided it was time to get in the auto business, something that had always interested me. After 6 years selling Ford and Chrysler In Elk River, the Ryan family offered me the opportunity to come and join the team in opening up the all-new Ryan Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Monticello.  This is allowing me to grow my reach and ability to help a broad base of clients while using technology and tenure to bring your experience to the next level, while still giving my clients the small-town feel.   When I'm not at the dealer, I'm spending time finding new roads on the Harley.  My wife and I also have our hands full raising our nine-month old German Shepherd, Morgan. She brings lots of excitement to our life from some really great things to a chewed-up shoe once in a while.

  • Colt Aguilar
    Parts Advisor
    763 271 1809

    I have lived in Minnesota my entire life.  My interest in the Automotive world started while I was young, as my parents owned and operated a driving school in Osseo, where vehicle maintenance was a weekly occurrence. While in college I worked as a private security contractor until transitioning to the firearms industry.  After a few years of dealing firearms I was offered an opportunity at Ryan Chrysler of Buffalo in the summer of 2014. When our new location in Monticello opened in 2018 I transferred to that location. While not at work I enjoy riding my Indian Motorcycle, target shooting, 4-wheeling and learning history.
