  • Ronnie Lamarque
    Owner and President
    251-472-2369

    Ronnie Lamarque has been in the car business since 1970, some 51 years, and is the owner and president of Lamarque Motor Company (LMC) and the new Lamarque Automotive Complex (LAC). Ronnie recently designed and built LAC, which consists of Ford, Lincoln Black Label, Collision, Quick Lane, and Parts & Service.  In 2008 Lamarque acquired Mercedes-Benz of Mobile in Mobile Alabama.

     

    An Arabi, LA native, Lamarque is a true family man. He stands by a credo of, "God first, family second, business third, and then everything else falls in place." Keeping those priorities in order, Lamarque's racehorses aren't the only things derived from championship pedigree. He has become a benchmark for success in the automotive, horse racing, and entertainment industries. Notably, this success has been personified by his appointment to Ford Motor Company's highly esteemed National Dealer Council, winner of Ford Motor Company's highly acclaimed Chairman's Award, and recognized as the Louisiana Dealer of the Year. Lamarque's Mercedes dealership in Mobile, AL is a "Best of the Best" award winner which serves as a stamp of excellence and quality.

     

    In 1988 Ronnie reached the pinnacle of thoroughbred horse racing when his three-year-old colt, Risen Star "Star," a son of Secretariat competed in the Triple Crown. Star ran third in the Kentucky Derby, however, won the Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes. "Star" won two of the three jewels of the Triple Crown. "Star" won the highly acclaimed Eclipse award in 1988 as the three-year-old champion colt. 


    An entertainer by birth, Lamarque's first passion was music. As a vocalist for the Nobles, he was inducted into the Louisiana Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and performed at Caesar's Palace at La Piazza Lounge in Las Vegas. In August of 2018 the world got to enjoy his rich crooner-style voice when he finished number 39 out of 60,000 contestants on America's Got Talent. 

     

    Ronnie's Commercials and Music Videos have numerous awards including Telly's for Saints Go Marching In, Believe, If I Can Dream, Most Ordinary Man, Ronnielogues and Ron Alongs. The release of his album 17-71 is a culmination of his music career from age 17 to age 71 and has since released the albums Once Upon a time and A Song For You.

     

    As an ardent supporter of community and charitable organizations, Lamarque is a recipient of many civic awards and honors as well as a Time Magazine award winner.  He is truly considered an ambassador to the City of New Orleans.  

     

    Lamarque has served as Chairman of the NFL Player/Celebrity Golf Tournament benefiting the March of Dimes, Chairman of the Century Club of Ozanam Inn for the Homeless, sponsor of the Annual Lamarque Leukemia Pro-Am Golf Tournament, sponsor of the "I'm Proud to be an American" Educational Program, annual donor to Children's Hospital of New Orleans, and countless other contributions.  

     

    His commitment to the community extends to education, as Lamarque established the Ronnie Lamarque Endowment Fund at Nunez Community 

    College and was the grand opening sponsor for Kirschmann Hall at the University of New Orleans College of Business Administration.  

     

    Ronnie is happily married to his lovely wife Natasha. Their son Ronnie, Jr. (RJ) is happily married to Amanda and is Vice President of LMC and LAC. RJ is a graduate from LSU where he played on the Tigers football team and received a plaque from the SEC with honors. Ronnie's daughter Kristi has blessed him with 3 beautiful grandchildren: Grace, Tanner, and Liam. 

     

    Last but not least Ronnie and Natasha reside with their French Bull Dog Onyx.
