Jessica Brandt’s automotive industry expertise, strong leadership, and dedication to her community distinguish her as a powerful force in New Orleans and the business world at large. Since becoming CEO of the Ray Brandt Auto Group in 2019, Jessica has skillfully led this flourishing enterprise of over 600 people while continuing to positively impact those in need.

Today’s turbulent economic landscape and fluctuating interest rates have presented their fair share of challenges for Jessica. However, she embraces obstacles with tenacity and has ensured the business stays ahead of the curve by monitoring market trends and maintaining a customer-focused approach. She and her team offer attractive incentives and flexible financing solutions to meet their clients’ needs.

“It’s incredibly fulfilling to guide a business that impacts so many lives,” says Jessica. Since its humble beginnings as a single dealership in 1983, the Ray Brandt Auto Group has expanded to include 13 dealerships and six collision centers throughout Louisiana and Mississippi. The Group consistently earns prestigious awards in recognition of its exceptional customer satisfaction.

Jessica’s pursuit of success extends beyond business. In 2015, she and her late husband founded the Ray and Jessica Brandt Family Foundation, which primarily provides financial assistance to local charities. The Foundation supports numerous local schools and organizations, such as St. Michael’s Special School, Children’s Hospital New Orleans, and the National World War II Museum.

“Having the opportunity to contribute to our community’s well-being is a privilege I cherish,” she says. “I believe that with success comes the responsibility to give back, and I’m wholeheartedly committed to fostering growth, development, and unity across Greater New Orleans and the Gulf South.”
