In 1981, Todd Maul’s automotive career began at a small store with a great teacher in Hastings, Nebraska at Jerry Spady Pontiac, Cadillac, GMC, AMC, Jeep, Renault and DeLorean.

He moved to Denver in 1984 to work for Bill Crouch Motor Company. One year later, he was recruited by Spedding Chevrolet, where he met Marshall Chesrown.

Between 1986 and 1997, Marshall Chesrown bought a number of dealerships with Todd as his right-hand man. In May 1997, he and his partners sold all six of the stores to AutoNation. Between 1997 and 2001, Todd ran 18 One Price stores. He then moved to Florida and ran 28 stores for AutoNation.

Returning to Denver, he ran 56 AutoNation stores in Arizona, Nevada, Colorado and Washington. By 2007, Todd was running 80 dealerships for AutoNation. Two years later, he left AutoNation and took a year off.

In 2009, Todd and his partners acquired their own stores. John Elway Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram in Greeley was opened in 2010; Burt Chevrolet (now John Elway Chevrolet) was then added. In 2012, Todd and his partners purchased Mike Shaw Chevrolet/Saab, and it became John Elway Chevrolet. In 2014, that store was traded for Don Massey Cadillac, which is now John Elway Cadillac.

Todd served on the national Chevrolet Dealer Council from 2014 - 2018, as Chair of the Colorado Automobile Dealers Association and was Chair of the Denver Auto Show’s Charity Preview Party in 2014.

He is active in the community through each store. John Elway Dealership Group proudly supports many organizations, including National Sports Center for the Disabled, TLC Meals on Wheels, Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation, Boys and Girls Club of America, National Jewish Health and many local schools and youth sports.

Todd founded Carrie’s Cause, a charity that honors his late wife and raises funds for poinsettias that volunteers hand deliver to nursing home residents during the holiday season.

In 2018, Todd was Colorado’s nominee for the TIME Dealer of the Year award. Also, Todd was recognized as Colorado’s Dealer of the Year in 2017.

Todd and wife Lisa have six children and seven grandchildren.
