Crow-Burlingame Names Richard Webster VP of Company Stores

Advancement shows company's commitment to fostering internal talent and promoting professional growth.

Bumper to Bumper member Crow-Burlingame announces the appointment of Richard Webster as vice president of company stores. With a journey spanning nearly three decades within the company, Webster’s advancement from a dedicated store manager to district manager, then regional manager, and now vice president is a testament to Crow-Burlingame’s commitment to fostering internal talent and promoting professional growth, the company said.

“I am pleased to announce that Richard Webster is stepping into the Vice President of Company Stores role,” said Fletcher Lord III, Crow-Burlingame’s CEO. “Webster’s wealth of experience in automotive industry and store operations will be a tremendous asset to Crow-Burlingame.”

In his new capacity, Webster will be at the helm of overseeing all facets of Crow-Burlingame’s company-owned stores, “ensuring operational efficiency, and steering the stores through evolving market challenges, while upholding the company’s core values and customer-centric approach,” the company said.

Webster’s promotion comes at a time of strategic realignment with Crow-Burlingame, as Tom Singleton, the vice president of store operations, transitions to vice president of strategic initiatives. Singleton’s wealth of knowledge and guidance will continue to be invaluable, further leading the charge on strategic initiatives for the company, Crow-Burlingame said. 

“We are extremely fortunate to have Tom Singleton remain with us as he takes on the VP of Strategic Initiatives role,” Lord added. “His depth of experience and insights will be instrumental in driving strategic vision with our company-owned stores.”

Singleton expressed excitement about the transition and his allegiance to Crow-Burlingame’s 100-plus years of success.  “While my role may change, my dedication to Crow-Burlingame remains in my heart, I look forward to working closely with Richard and the team to drive our stores forward.”

Webster echoed Singleton’s statements, expressing his gratitude for the opportunity and excitement for the future. “I am honored to take on this new role and lead our company stores into the next chapter,” Webster said. “With Tom’s guidance and the support of our dedicated team, I am confident that we will continue to care for our customers’ everyday needs.”
