Dealer Principals

Howard Orloff
Founder 1930-2020

Howard started in the car business when he was 21, working at Courtesy Motors, for Jim Moran, "The Courtesy Man". From there he opened his own used car lot, and then moved into selling new cars, including Hudsons and Pontiacs. He later joined Fohrman Imports, located at Fullerton and Cicero Avenues, in 1964. Howard eventually bought out his partners and changed the name to Howard Orloff Imports, selling Jaguar, Volvo, and British Leyland products, including MGs and Triumphs. He moved his business from Fullerton Avenue in 1993 to our current location at Armitage and the Kennedy Expressway. In 2002, he added a Land Rover franchise and started selling Land Rovers, and has now enjoyed over 65 years serving Chicagoland. Howard's dedication to his employees was always paramount to how he operated his business. He was of the philosophy that if he took care of his staff, they would take care of his customers. Howard's leadership and sound business practices have made his staff proud and privileged to work for him, as well as creating so many customers for life.

Unfortunately, Howard passed away January 25, 2020 at the age of 89 years old, and in doing so, left an indelible legacy of the highest standard of customer service, one he practiced for over 60 years in the luxury auto dealership that bears his name. 

David Orloff

Having worked here in our family business since 1977, I have enjoyed learning each department through working in them as I grew into my current position of Dealer Principle. I started in the Detail Department, then moved on to Parts, then worked as a Service Advisor, after several years in Service, I moved into the Sales Department and then on to Management. One of the most rewarding experiences for me is having been able to spend so much time with my father, Howard Orloff, and to watch, listen and learn from him first hand. Along with my partners and our staff, we are always here to serve our customers in a manner that will keep them a loyal Howard Orloff customer for years to come. Please don't hesitate to contact me if I can be of assistance in any way.

Joseph Coletta
Vice President

Having worked in the automobile industry for almost 25 years, all with Howard Orloff Imports, the last 15 years as a part owner, I have come to appreciate both our committed staff and our loyal and valued customers. Having the chance to work in a family business, has given me a rare opportunity to make a difference; both in working with such a fine staff, and also in serving our customers in a friendly, positive and enjoyable way. As a Dealer Principal, it is important that each of our employees have a safe and comfortable environment in which to come to work each day. And as the exclusive Jaguar, Land Rover and Volvo dealer in Chicago, it is equally important, that each of our customers share that comfortable environment where they are respected, appreciated and valued in every way doing business with us. Celebrating our 55th Anniversary in the auto industry, we have recommitted ourselves and our company to serving our customers in the very best way possible by defining our company philosophy that, "Every employee is responsible for every customer experience".

Bill Grzesinski
General Manager

I started working in the car business at Howard Orloff in May of 2000 as a young pup of 22 years old. Since that time, I've gotten married, have had two beautiful daughters and a son, and have gone from being in the top 10% in the country in Volvo Sales, to being the Finance Director, the Pre-Owned Manager, General Sales Manager, and now General Manager. I always strive for 110% customer satisfaction in all aspects of their sales or service experience.

Greg Leach
General Sales Manager

I started my career in the automobile business 32 years ago, at a dealership where we became the top dealership in the nation for our brand. I learned early on that taking care of our customers was the only way we would prosper in the auto industry. As a result, I have spent my career insisting on the best for my customers, not only from me, but from my sales staff as well.  I have been at Howard Orloff Imports since February of 2007, and in that time we have developed a conscientious group of sales professionals who really care about their customers, and as a result, provide great service. It is a staff and company with whom I am proud to be associated.

Chris Kowalik

I have been in the automotive business since May of 2000. I joined the Orloff team in 2003 as a member of the new Land Rover Chicago franchise. Over the past 10 years here, I worked in the Land Rover/Jaguar Sales Department and in September 2012, became Business Manager. In my new role as Sales Manager, my goal continues to be providing customers with quality service and to build lasting relationships. In my spare time I enjoy biking and spending time with my two sons.

Greg Urban
Service Manager

I am the Service Manager here at Howard Orloff Imports and I have been since July 2007. I have worked in the car business for more than 25 years and I have had the pleasure of meeting some really wonderful people along the way. I always put myself into the shoes of the customer and I think that has helped me to be successful over the years. The part that I love most about the Service Department, is the positive vibe and electricity that results from taking care of customers, interacting with employees, and fixing cars right the first time!

Brian Meehan
Sales Consultant

I am a sales consultant for Howard Orloff Imports. After a few years of working in construction, I was looking for a new and rewarding challenge. It is the desire for a career change that has landed me in the automobile industry. I am eager to learn the business and assist my customers in their pursuit of their new vehicle. Like many of my co-workers, I believe that the car buying process does not have to be a difficult or complicated one. Finding a vehicle that best suits the individual customer's needs at the right price is just the beginning of our relationship. I look forward to developing and maintaining these relationships in the years to come.

General Office

Maria Liston

I was given the opportunity to join the Howard Orloff Imports family in 2007 as the Office Manager. I brought with me 28 years of auto dealership experience. I have always enjoyed the day-to-day operations of the general office, as well as managing the challenges that arise along the way. It is the responsibility of the general office staff to put the finishing touches on the customer transaction, and equally as important, to insure that any follow up to the customer's purchase or lease experience and their relationship with the dealership is a positive one. I take great pride in maintaining that relationship, and find it rewarding when a customer leaves the dealership satisfied with their new car. In my spare time, I enjoy sporting events and spending time with my son, who is a senior at the University of Illinois.
