    I have over 20 years of very diverse, very successful auto and auto related experience, yet I learn something every day.

    Diverse as in:


    • Managed the first Automotive assisted listing program for eBay (employed by eBay), which included but was not limited to; collector, classic, muscle cars, RVs and fleet remarketing. We were selling approximately 400 vehicles per month online when it was sold.
    • I specialize in creating departments and/or consulting dealerships/groups with an emphasis on training, positive reinforcement and accountability.
    • Have held the positions of CEO, Managing Partner, Operations Director, Director of Business Development, BDC/CRC Director, E-commerce Director, General Sales Manager, Sales and Marketing Manager, Sales Manager, Internet Manager, Finance Manager and Sales trainer.
    • Handled everything from setting up multiple CRMs, designing multiple dealership websites and group websites that generated incredible ROI, handled sales training which included phone and e-mail etiquette, finance manager menu training, DMS contract negotiations and implementation, marketing and advertising (traditional and online (Google certified) with ROI analysis, in-depth report building (days supply, market share analysis via Polk Data etc.) and even expense reduction and tracking.

    Successful as in:


    • Increased revenue immediately and dramatically everywhere I have worked.
    • Never have received a bad review or been fired for lack of performance or because of attitude, tardiness.
    • I am transparent and communicate well enough to train and show businesses, dealerships and/or managers how to change and sustain a "winning culture", which may be why I am looking for a new home.
    • You can ask my references!

    Why would you want to hire me:


    • I do a lot of research and analysis before I put a plan into action and then I execute that plan, complete with start date, completion date, costs and ROI.
    • I manage expectations well. The whole "under promise and over deliver" thing is very important to me.
    • I am a team player and when needed, can change positively the culture. I believe in giving people the tools they need to succeed, managing their expectations and holding them and myself accountable for the results.
    • I am forward thinking, creative and dare I say, "out of the box" thinker, with an excellent business mind and learn quickly.
    • I have been in the top 10% in sales and sales management at every place I have worked (where it was track-able).
    • I am a firm believer that you can't manage what you can't measure.
    • I will get you the results you want, the right way.


    I have worked extensively with software like (though some of it may now be dated): Rey Rey, ADP, Dealertrak, Quorum, System 2000, Vinsolutions, Dealer Impact, Knowme, Callsource, Call Command, Salesforce, Higher Gear, BZ Results, Promax, Contact at Once! and many more that I can't think of at the moment.

    I have handled SEO/SEM/PPC, ZMOT marketing, retargeting, geo/demo/zip based marketing, behavioral marketing, rich media, social media as well as many others.

    I have worked, implemented and maximized 3rd party advertising sources like; Cars.com, Autotrader.com, Dealix, Craigslist, KBB, Yahoo-including Behavioral targeting, as well as many others.

    I currently reside in Lafayette, Louisiana and would consider relocation for the right position. I am looking for a career position with a dynamic, growing and/or solid organization. As I really don't like "selling myself" in this way, I would appreciate if you have the slightest interest or think I may be a good fit to review my Linkedin profile or contact me directly.

    Thank you for your time and putting up with my abundance of bulletpoints!

    Why not make a video and add a new dimension to your resume.

    Thanks for the feedback! My resume and experience tends to be confusing, and I seem to do much better face to face.

    Never thought about that, but would need to lose a few pounds first :D

    Have any examples (best practices, etc.) to share?

    http://forum.dealerrefresh.com/f5/phone-ninjas-hiring-2986.html I already hired this person, so please don't think I am hiring right now. Just trying to help a guy out. I know Grant is hiring in Miami. Have you tried him?

    Ones weight does not have anything to do with ones ability to perform a job. I can think of some really talented people in the industry who could stand to lose a few pounds. We won't mention any names, but they exist.
