The doors of Michael Albert's used car dealership opened in 1928. Almost 30 years later, the growing Cincinnati dealership entered the fleet leasing business. Fast-forward to 2016, the Mike Albert brand continues to operate both a used car dealership/maintenance garage - Mike Albert Direct, as well as a robust fleet management business - Mike Albert Fleet Solutions.
Before retiring, Mr. Albert entrusted the beloved business to his nephew, Bob Betagole. Mr. B. proudly carried on the family tradition - growing the business and eventually hiring his own children to run the company with him. Today Bob's daughter, Marty Betagole, serves as the company's CEO.
Over the last 60 years, the Betagole family has owned, operated and grown the company to be a well-respected leader in the national fleet management industry. The Betagole family recognizes future growth opportunities through both organic and acquisition strategies and are proud to announce the first non-family president, Jeff Hart.
Mike Albert Direct and Mike Albert Fleet Solutions now employ over 200 people, and continue to uphold the honest culture and ethics of a family owned business.
