The Sales-to-Service Handoff Can Translate to Serious Revenue & Loyal Customers

Hidden profit opportunities exist throughout most dealerships. Whether those opportunities present themselves through service customers migrating to sales or sales customers that become service customers, all can lead to increased revenue and building relationships with your customers.

Takata Strikes Back with a Vengeance

I realize that we’re all probably sick of hearing about the Takata airbag recalls. Take a deep breath because it’s not over yet! As faulty Takata airbags have caused one of the largest recalls in history, endangering millions of lives, most of us assumed that all the makes and models affected by the Takata recall had been identified and that their owners…See More

Technicians are the Key to Dealerships’ Future

Service departments account for and absorb most of a dealership’s losses in sales and fixed expenses. That is not going away anytime soon. With new car front-end grosses declining, most dealerships will increasingly rely on service business to, well, stay in business. The problem isn’t a lack of service business, but a shortage of qualified technicians to perform it.…See More

Turning Recalls from Trash to Treasure

In a twist of irony, I’ve come to realize what consumers and dealerships have in common when it comes to vehicles recalls – assessing how important they are. Every day I work with dealerships throughout the nation, trying to get them to understand that recalls are not only about vehicle safety but also about an opportunity to engage consumers at their moment of need. It…See More

Customer Experience Upgrades in 3 Simple Steps

Customers don’t necessarily arrive at your dealership expecting a great experience. When it comes to service, many dread a higher-than-normal repair bill. They expect to hear additional maintenance is needed, but don’t want to spend a lot of time at the dealership and can get annoyed if made to wait longer than anticipated. Whether this annoyance due to long wait times…See More

As Safety Value Increases, So Do Repairs

Technology that helps safeguard drivers and passengers is flourishing. Vehicle manufacturers are adopting sophisticated driver safety systems as standard equipment. The problem is, what happens in the event of a system failure? You have more than likely experienced the “blue screen of death” on a Windows-based computer, or the endless spinning wheel on a Mac.

ADM is a Professional Network, describe: "Why should anyone do business with you?"
I am a seasoned software designer and marketing professional. A longtime proponent of using technology to streamline marketing communications, I have over 15 years experience in advertising and software development. I have worked on campaigns and built automation platforms for some of the world’s largest brands including HSBC/Household Automotive, Washington Mutual, Residential Pacific Mortgage, ServiceMagic, Monumental Life Insurance, Mercedes Benz USA, BMW/Mini North America, Volvo North America, JP Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo, Moxy Solutions, and Costco Automotive Group.
"What will YOU contribute to the ADM Community?"
I previously worked as VP of Marketing and Product Management at MyCustomerData where I helped evolve its Savings Card program. I developed its groundbreaking Card Center website lead conversion utility available to over 1,000 automotive dealerships nationwide. I helped MyCustomerData achieve its Inc. 500|5000 ranking and win a 2011 award from the Direct Marketing Association (DMA) as one of the Top 5 Marketing Programs of the year against one thousand competing campaigns nationwide.

Having programmed software since age 10, I expanded his skillset with a degree in international business and a minor in social psychology from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo. I graduated in three years and was on the Orfalea College of Business Dean’s List in 2004. I sat on the University’s Business Council and served as a member of the SLO Chamber of Commerce’s Technology Advisory Committee (TAC). I also helped develop the University’s student entrepreneurship program as head of Cal Poly’s Entrepreneurship Club. And came back as a first-year alumni to compete and win first place in the University’s business plan competition sponsored by Ray Scherr, founder of Guitar Center.

I worked his way through high school and college as principal of Criterion Networks, an aimless custom software development shop that I built to manage over 30 clients including a major project for HSBC Automotive.

Outside of work, I actively support two major humanitarian organizations fighting global poverty:
Unicef (www.unicef.org) to provide emergency aide and ongoing food, shelter, healthcare, and education services to children in struggling or disaster-torn countries
CARE (www.care.org) providing care and education to women as their empowerment continues to be the #1 single greatest factor leading to increased quality of life for an entire population.

I also serve as a Mentor on Staff for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society‘s Team-In-Training (TNT) with it’s San Francisco Bay Area Triathlon Team. In 2013, I competed in twelve races and six major (What do we do for fun?) swim/bike/run events as part of teams that raised nearly $600,000 toward blood cancer research and patient care (Go TEAM!). This year, I am also an advocacy volunteer for the Alzheimer’s Association as I help to gather grassroot support in numerous cities during their Walk to End Alzhemier‘s events.
