ATG’s Kevin Holmes named a Business Leader of the Year

Kevin Holmes ATGAdvantage Truck Group was founded in 1984 in a two-pumper service station with $12,000, Kevin Holmes’s life savings. He was undercapitalized, but he jumped in anyway.

“Nine thousand dollars went into gas in the ground and the rest into rent,” Holmes said.

ATG is now New England’s biggest Daimler Trucks North America dealer and the company opened its eighth regional location in 2021. The expansion came after it merged its sales and service provider Tri-State Truck Center with McDevitt Truck in New Hampshire in 2018.

The Worcester Business Journal named Kevin one of 2024’s Business Leaders of the Year, representing central Massachusetts.
