Valencia Acura – Cheri Fleming


Cheri Fleming was born and raised in Parma Heights, Ohio and moved to Southern California after graduating from Ohio University. She and her husband, Don, have an entrepreneurial spirit and have owned various businesses, however, the car business “hooked” them in 1985.


In 1997, Cheri and Don purchased Valencia Acura, and made the decision to put Cheri in the leadership position as Dealer Principal. At that time Valencia Acura ranked dead last nationally in sales and customer satisfaction. With no place to go but up, Cheri and Don began treating customers the way they would want to be treated, and became a vital force in the Santa Clarita community. Today Valencia Acura is in the top Acura dealerships in sales and one of the highest ranking customer satisfaction dealerships in the country. Their sales penetration in their primary market area and customer loyalty ranks among the highest in the nation. In addition, Cheri currently serves as:
