Shawnee Mission Kia in Mission, Kansas, is selected as the latest CGSC Foundation Corporate Partner Spotlight.

According to Foundation President/CEO Rod Cox, Shawnee Mission Kia has been a great supporter of the CGSC Foundation in recent months.

“Shawnee Mission Kia under the direction of General Manager Rick Ulin has supported numerous Foundation programs,” said Cox. “They provided much needed sponsorship for the Simons Center Distinguished Lecture series in September 2021, and led the way with sponsorship of the Arter-Rowland National Security Forum.”

Cox added that Shawnee Mission Kia has made donations to the Foundation general fund as well.

General Manager Rick Ulin is a veteran himself with service as an infantry paratrooper in the early 1980’s with the 1st Battalion, 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 82d Airborne Division. He has been a leader in the automotive industry in the Midwest for years. His leadership of Shawnee Mission Kia has produced Kansas City’s leading Kia dealer with its service department ranked first in customer satisfaction in the region. The dealership has also earned the Kia Presidents Award, an honor that only 21 of 640 Kia dealers nationwide have earned. For more information visit
