Meet the Staff of Daniell Motors

Steve Daniell - Owner/President


A pre-owned dealership is only as good as the vehicles offered, and that quality is entrusted to our owner, Steve Daniell. When you buy, you get the benefit of almost 40 years experience in hand-picking cars, trucks, vans and SUV’s. He is noted for his eye to see the truth about a vehicle, his knowledge of track records with diverse makes and models and value retention awareness. When you buy a “Daniell Motors’” vehicle, you are getting his name and assurance that he would sell to his own family with confidence. When Steve started Daniell Motors in Hattiesburg, Mississippi in the 1970’s, he was completing his degree at the University of Southern Mississippi where he played football for P.W. Underwood. As a lifetime member of the M-Club and Alumni Association, his most recent connection with the University was made through the purchase of a 1923 Hudson from the Department of Arts and Letters to create the Jay Washam Award for Excellence.

Madalene Daniell - Owner/Vice President


Madalene Daniell – A business runs from the inside out, and Madalene oversees that portion of our business. Daniell Motors’ ability to offer you multiple lenders, clean processes, finance and tax management, and progressive vision for the future of the pre-owned industry, displays Madalene’s role in the team. She represents the company as a Board Member of the Mississippi Independent Auto Dealers Association and attends yearly continuing education conferences offered by the National Independent Auto Dealers Association. This assures you, the buyer, that anything required to buy with confidence will be in place. In addition, if you are a mother-to-be or a new mother with children under the age of three in the Hattiesburg area, you might already know Madalene as the director of “Fitness for Two,” a series of maternal education classes.
