In Memoriam

In Memory of George D. Nassief
Founder of Nassief Automotive 1955

George Nassief started his automobile career selling cars in his hometown of Ashtabula, after attending college and serving in the military. He and his wife, Helen have been area residents all of their lives and have five children, two of whom are involved in the local dealerships. Mr. Nassief became the Jefferson Ford-Mercury Dealer in 1955, purchasing the dealership from Oscar Anderson. He was then awarded the original Honda franchise in 1974, and Toyota in 1977. After extensive research on Hyundai's commitment to quality, he enthusiastically became Ashtabula County's exclusive Hyundai dealer in 1991.

Management

Marybeth Nassief
General Manager

Marybeth is honored to be part of the second generation in the family's business, following in her father's footsteps. She learned everything about the automotive world working with him throughout high school, after college and up until his passing in 2003. She learned everything about treating others with respect, watching and learning from both her parents, George, as well as Helen, who continues to guide her even today.

The family legacy is easy to continue when it comes to business because it works - one of the many reasons Nassiefs successfully continues to be family owned and operated, as it has been since 1955 - "Treat people the way you want to be treated" and you'll always know what to do and how to do it.

Marybeth was also taught that "You are only as good as the people you surround yourself with", and as you will see when you stop in and meet the people on this page, that is certainly a very true statement. Marybeth and her family are very proud of the longevity, dedication and customer service all coworkers enthusiastically provide at both Nassief dealerships.
