ADM is a Professional Network, please describe YOUR Value Proposition... Why do business with you?
I bring over 25 years of automotive industry experience to ResponseLogix including roles as VP at J.D. Power and as executive editor at both Kelley Blue Book and IntelliChoice. I try to associate myself with thought leaders and trend setters. I am passionate about continually improving the relationship between dealers and consumers ultimately leading to a satisfying transaction.
In order to study trends, maintain contact with industry executives, and further product familiarity, I travel worldwide attending many Auto Industry conventions and conferences. I am often a featured speaker at automotive seminars, educational meetings and media interviews. I have been a regular correspondent on Motor Trend Radio’s weekly show, an Auto Industry commentator for televised business news, and contribute to numerous automotive publications and blogs.
What interesting insights can you contribute to the ADM Community? What are you PASSIONATE about? Who are you?
Throughout my career I am often asked whose side I am on…the dealers, the consumer, the OEM the banks…the answer is the transaction! Nobody benefits till there is a transaction so I’ve always worked on ways to facilitate a deal. As an internet pioneer I've always worked at providing accurate, timely and relevant information on the web.
As the Executive Editor at IntelliChoice.com I was responsible for all aspects of the ongoing success and growth of the consumer facing website. IntelliChoice created and provides cost of ownership information and informs consumers which vehicles that are the best overall value. IntelliChoice is part of the Motor Trend Automotive Group.
At J.D. Power, I created the JD Power Internet Roundtable which continues to draw the auto industry internet executives and thought leaders.
During my 20 years at Kelley Blue Book, I served as a key member of its management team. I was instrumental in helping to change the Kelley identity from a regional trade publishing company to the Automotive Industry’s leading internet information provider.
I was an original contributor to the development and implementation of several other automotive web sites including the automotive sites at AOL, Microsoft, Yahoo, Google and e-Bay. Additionally I was chairman of the Automotive Internet Standards Committee regarding the development of all major automotive Internet sites.
I earned a bachelor’s degree in economics from Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington. My education included one year abroad studying the formation of the Common Market/European Union.
Immediately following college, I pursued an interest in aviation. This included several years as a commercial pilot, flight instructor, ground school teacher, flight club manager, Alaskan floatplane bush-pilot and one year as an air traffic controller.
