Our Founder

Emir C. Abinion is the founder, President and CEO of Fox Valley Auto Group. After getting his start in the industry at Golf Mill Ford in 1982, Emir went on to own his first dealership, Landmark Ford in Niles, IL for 14 years (1992-2006). In 2006, Volkswagen awarded Emir C. Abinion with the new Volkswagen dealership location in West Chicago. Our focus towards providing superior customer service and excellent ownership experience has allowed Fox Valley Auto Group to expand over the years, with the addition of Fox Valley Volkswagen Schaumburg, Illinois in 2008 and Fox Valley Buick GMC of St. Charles, Illinois in May of 2011.


In 2016, Emir Abinion introduced Frank Butnaru as a partner at our Fox Valley Buick GMC location. Emir and Frank have been long time friends since 1996 when Emir brought Frank on at Landmark Ford of Niles. Frank has been with Fox Valley Auto Group since our doors opened in 2006. Frank has contributed to the development and success of the auto group as he has played several roles in each location over the last 14 years. Frank is currently the General Manager at Fox Valley Buick GMC.
