Our Team

Chadd Linnehan

Chadd Linnehan is the 4th Linnehan generation to own and operate an automobile dealership in Ellsworth - a legacy of family businesses that dates back to 1950. Chadd started full time in the automobile business in 1994, at his father's Ford dealership. Over the years, he has been mentored by his father and grandfather - John Jr, and John Sr. (Bumpa to his grandsons!) John Sr. was full of sayings and one of them especially rings true to Right Way Auto - "If you go right, you can't go wrong." This was usually offered up at a fork in the road while driving, but also was good life advice! Chadd is married to his high school sweetheart Jennifer, and has two boys and two girls.
