What’s Your Story:
My personal and sincere thanks to Rupert Murdoch for closing down the local newspaper after I’d been there for only 6 months. That decision, which at the time wasn’t a happy one for me, steered me into the auto industry – my passion for the next 38 years.
I started as a cadet salesperson transitioning to management, and eventually ownership of a multi-franchise, multi-million dollar business. My focus and point of difference had always been my customers and the relationship with them. My consciousness is that customers will stick with you for life if you treat them as a member of your family.
Unfortunately, that isn’t the case in this business and accordingly, Car Business was created to assist new car buyers buying their car at a much cheaper price than the industry wants them to pay. Industry sources state that in 2015 the average new car buyer contributed nearly $4000 to the profit of new car dealers.
Gouging is not the way to create long-term relationships.
