Ralph Chiodo is the President of Active Green+Ross Tire & Automotive Centre, which operates 70 franchise locations in Ontario. Ralph is also President of Peel Chrysler JeepFiat, a Chrysler automotive dealership that he founded in 1980. At the age of 14, Ralph emigrated from Catanzaro, Italy, to Canada through Pier 21. On October 15, 1966, with a small loan from his uncle, he purchased his first gas station and started his own automotive service business in Etobicoke, Ontario. Over the next decade, his drive and dedication led to the creation of a successful franchise.

An active member of his community, Ralph has served on boards of a number of organizations and associations, including President of the Rotary Club of Etobicoke, Chairman of the IC Savings Foundation, and Member of the Board of Trustees of the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21, with further responsibilities as the Fundraising Co-Chair. Ralph is the recipient of many awards, including the Canadian Italian Business Professional Association’s President’s Award and the Queen’s Jubilee Medal.
