Genesis Brand History

Genesis is the luxury vehicle division of Hyundai Motor Group dating back from 2004. On November 4, 2015 Hyundai ultimately decided to separate the more luxury-based Genesis models from the family-oriented Hyundai lineup, and named it Genesis Motors. On December 9, 2015, Genesis launched their first stand-alone flagship model away from Hyundai as the G90, but it wasn’t until 2016 that Genesis first launched in the U.S.

Since then, Genesis’s vision and mission has been that they are striving to create the finest automobiles and related products and services for connoisseurs around the globe. Their team of talented individuals around the world is led by their company’s values, where respect for one another in the quest of finding the best solutions for refined individuality dominates their work ethos.

Genesis wants to make a positive difference in their customers’ lives by exploring new avenues and constantly pushing the boundaries forward in an infinite, yet mindful way, which shall lead them to create truly aspirational products. This journey, as Genesis sees it, is an everlasting one, and it has just begun.

Patrick Dealer Group’s History with Genesis

Genesis in the Genesis of Schaumburg showroom

In 1904 Detroit Michigan, Hanley Dawson IV’s great grandfather made the acquaintance of the legendary Henry Ford. Ford’s automobile manufacturing plant was located across the street from the bank where he worked. His great grandfather offered to sell used cars returned to the Ford plant, and eventually was granted the opportunity to sell new cars off the assembly line.

In 1907, his great grandfather was awarded the first new Ford franchise in the Midwest.

In 1951, Hanley Dawson Jr. took over the dealership from his father. 20 years later, in 1971 the family business moved to Chicago, on the corner of Rush and Ontario Street, and Hanley Dawson Jr. was awarded the first and only Chicago Cadillac factory retail branch operation. Hanley Dawson Jr. and his son, Hanley Dawson III, ran that business known as Hanley Dawson Cadillac until the early 1990’s.

In 1977, Hanley Dawson III set out on his own and started the Patrick Dealer Group, named after his youngest son Patrick.

In 2019, Genesis of Schaumburg was established at 1020 East Golf Road, Schaumburg, IL 60173, sharing a facility with Patrick Hyundai.
