OXFORD, Mississippi — Tyler Cannon has been appointed general manager of Cannon Ford Lincoln, continuing a family tradition started by his grandfather in 1959.
“I am proud that Tyler is following in our family business,” Michael Joe Cannon, CEO of Cannon Motor Company, said in a news release. “We look forward to continuing to meet the auto needs of individuals and families in Cleveland, Greenville, Clarksdale, and throughout the Delta and Mississippi.”
After graduating from high school, Tyler Cannon attended Mississippi College where he played baseball. He transferred to and graduated from the University of Mississippi. Tyler majored in Human Resources and Marketing, assets that he believes are valuable to the motor industry.
“Our business is 24/7 and you have to love what you do,” said Tyler Cannon. “One element is connecting with people, and I look forward to getting out in the community more to do just that.”
Cannon Motor Company has eight Mississippi dealerships in Cleveland, Greenwood, Oxford, Grenada, Calhoun City, Vicksburg, and Jackson offering new Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Ford, Lincoln, Nissan and Toyota and pre-owned vehicles.
Plans are under way to add a ninth dealership in Greenwood.
