Building a Legacy

Stuteville is one of a select group of 49 dealer nominees from across the country who will be honored at the 103rd annual National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) Show in Las Vegas on February 15, 2020. The announcement of this year’s annual award was made by Susanna Schrobsdorff, chief
partnerships officer, TIME, and Doug Timmerman, president of Auto Finance for Ally Financial.

The TIME Dealer of the Year award is one of the automobile industry’s most prestigious and highly coveted honors. Recipients are among the nation’s most successful auto dealers who also demonstrate a long-standing commitment to community service. Stuteville, 53, was chosen to represent the Oklahoma Automobile Dealers Association in the national competition – one of only 49 auto dealers nominated for the 51st annual award from more than 16,000 nationwide.

Stuteville started in the car business part-time as a detailer during high school. He began his college studies at Southeastern State University in Durant before transferring to the University of Oklahoma in Norman where he then joined the sales team of a Buick dealership.

“After about a year, my lifelong friend’s father, Buddy Spencer, called and asked me to come work for him in sales at his Ford dealership in Durant, Okla.,” he said. “Mr. Spencer had a big impact on me in my early career.”

Stuteville remained at the dealership even after Spencer sold it, holding management positions before moving to Poteau, Okla., to be general manager for a Ford store. “In 2000, I bought my first dealership, Stuteville Ford of Atoka, in Oklahoma, at the age of 34 with a business partner,” he said.

Awards & Recognition

An active member of the Oklahoma Automobile Dealers Association, Stuteville served as chairman (2014 and 2015) and vice chairman in (2012 and 2013). “My two years as chairman were during a time of growth in the new vehicle business,” he said. “I focused on training and attracting technicians on a statewide basis in collaboration with our state’s technical colleges. I also spearheaded a statewide advertising campaign focusing on what new car dealers contributed to their local communities, from the economic impact to local donations.” And Stuteville exemplifies that philanthropic spirit. “During my almost 30-year career, we have helped hundreds of schools, organizations and individuals,” he said. “Whether it was a sports team, academic team, FFA [Future Farmers of America], math clubs, local homeless shelters, women’s shelters, law enforcement fundraisers or youth rodeos, we have supported most of them.”

Partners With Our Community

We are partners within our community and as an employee, you will get a chance to give back as well. We partner with many local organizations, charities, and events with the goal of supporting our local community and the less fortunate.


Ponca City’s High School, we have given away 2 cars for driver’s ed; one from the Ford store and one from the Chevy store.

Corvette’s and Canvases

Stuteville is proud of the Corvettes and Canvas art gala that he hosts at his Chevrolet store to support Imagine Durant, a community-based initiative established to create a unified vision for Durant and to develop strategies to fulfill that vision. A small part of the Corvettes and Canvas proceeds as well go to the Texoma Arts Association from that event. “Each fall, we have a black-tie fundraiser for the group, which features an auction and art sale,” he said. “We are proud to have raised more than $100,000 for this important organization.”
