    My name is Harrison Whitten & I am proud to be the fourth consecutive generation operating our family's business.  I have grown up in & around the automotive world & truly enjoy operating our store.  My family & I live in the city & love to take advantage of all Richmond has to offer.  Whether it be on the water or on a trail, I can often be found having fun within the city limits when I am not at work.  I love being able to give back to this city & hope to be able to do so for many years to come. 

  • Zack Cochran

    My name is Zack Cochran & I'm the "other guy" in the commercials (the one on the right in the picture). I'm proud to have the responsibility to operate the Whitten Brothers family of dealerships with my cousin-in-law Harrison Whitten.  The majority of my childhood was spent growing up in Charleston SC.  I graduated from the University of Virginia in 2001 and I've resided in Richmond ever since.  My wife Sarah and I and our 3 children reside in Henrico County and when not at the dealerships or at my children's various activities I enjoy the game of golf and attending as many college hoops games as my schedule will allow.  I enjoy the retail automotive industry and I look forward to the many innovations and efficiencies that technology is constantly bringing to our industry.  The automotive future is bright for the dealership and consumers alike!
