Tom Benson announces purchase of Cadillac of New Orleans

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - New Orleans Saints and Pelicans owner Tom Benson announced Tuesday the purchase of Cadillac of New Orleans.

Benson, a veteran in the automotive dealership industry and a recipient of the prestigious 50 Year General Motors Dealer Award, has added the Cadillac brand of luxury automobiles to his roster of dealerships, which also currently includes Best Chevrolet in Kenner and Mercedes-Benz of New Orleans.

"Cadillac has long been amongst the true gold standard in the automotive world," said Benson, shortly after Best Chevrolet was named the number one General Motors dealership in the state of Louisiana. "The quality and attention to detail in each one of their cars is legendary.  We are pleased to be able to continue to offer New Orleans and southeast Louisiana communities Cadillac's legendary automobiles and service."

Benson has long been an ardent and enthusiastic advocate in supporting important New Orleans and Louisiana businesses and charities. Besides his automotive, financial and real estate interests, Benson has been the owner of the New Orleans Saints since 1985 and the New Orleans Pelicans since 2012.
