James Provenzano is an Amsterdam High School graduate.
James Chevrolet was formed in Upstate New York in 2002 by James Provenzano. He loved the car business but not the sales tactics used to sell cars. Relying on over 10 years of experience with wholesale auto actions and automotive retailing, James created Eagle Auction Direct. Eagle Auction Direct provides a tremendous selection of vehicles at auction prices. The result is a fun and open sales atmosphere that is completely "customer-driven".
He took over Eagle Chevrolet in 2002, renamed it to James Chevrolet in 2014. Since 2002 he has acquired 3 more dealerships, and seven Brands, across New York. We currently have an inventory of over 1,000 vehicles in stock and growing.
