BETHESDA, Md.,-- Robert L. Johnson, founder and chairman of The RLJ Companies and chairman of the board of the automotive group RLJ McLarty Landers Automotive Holdings, LLC (RML) ranked first on this year's "B.E. 100s Auto Dealers" list published annually by Black Enterprise.

The automotive group has ranked 1st on the B.E. 100s list for four consecutive years and its rank is based on 2012 revenue among 60 minority auto dealers in the country.

"Thomas 'Mack' McLarty and I created RLJ McLarty Landers with the goal of becoming the nation's largest minority auto dealership," said Johnson. "We continue to grow and expand our dealership base across the country, and I am pleased with this year's top ranking. Being ranked in the leading dealership position for the fourth consecutive year is truly a testament to our talented management team and our proven ability to successfully compete in the automotive industry," he concluded.

"We have a strong track record at RML," added Franklin McLarty, president and CEO. "In six years, RML has grown to volume among some of the most recognized dealership groups in the country. I am confident that if we continue to respond to our customers, listen to our employees, and build on the expertise of our associates and GMs, our company will continue to represent some of the highest quality of standards in the industry. We are excited about today's announcement," he concluded.

RML is headquartered in Little Rock, Arkansas and is the largest African American owned automotive franchise in the country consisting of 35 automotive franchises and three Harley-Davidson motorcycle dealerships across the South Central, Southeast, and Midwest regions of the country. RML is led by Thomas "Mack" McLarty, who serves as vice chairman, is the former chief of staff to President Bill Clinton and whose family has been in the transportation business for four-generations.
