    25 Apr 2017

    Growing up in suburban Detroit, dealer Katie Bowman Coleman lived too far from her dad's rural dealership to work summers there. Instead she sold clothes, which interested her far more than cars anyway. Coleman, now president of Bowman Chevrolet in Clarkston, Mich, says she watched her dad go through a lot of hard knocks in the car business.
