If there is a Stephen Hawking of the automotive digital space, Ralph Paglia is it. Every time I think I have a great idea about innovations in the digital arena, I shortly find that Ralph has already been there. His contributions to our business are severely underrated. To call him a pioneer in the automotive digital world would be like calling Magic Johnson a basketball player. I am thankful every time I get to read anything he has published and relish the time I get to spend picking his brain. He's a hard guy to get into your store, but if you have a chance to lean on his wisdom in any way, I highly recommend you seize the opportunity.

May 29, 2012, Volker Jaeckel - worked with Ralph but at different companies
Ralph was my inspiration when I came from Germany to the U.S. and he was it who I wanted to follow in regards of his visionary capabilities and how the automotive retail industry was evolving into the digital age. He had shown as a hands on practitioner in his AZ store how process, digital expertise and leadership can transform a former offline marketing store into a online Web 3.0 powerhouse - known everywhere in the U.S. Ralph has shown over all this year that he is always one step ahead the competition when creating new opportunities and venues for the automotive folks. When the "Sopranos" would have a dedicated automotive sequel in their HBO series - Ralph would have been definitively identified as the Godfather of automotive Digital Marketing.

June 5, 2011, Rick reported directly to Ralph“With so many others saying such great things about Ralph, what can I really bring to the mix? Some years ago Ralph became my Mentor, Coach, Peer and I hope a Friend. Ralph has a vast passion for this industry and our clients and it shows in everything he does. I saw firsthand his pursuit to make sure we exceeded the expectations of our clients. As a TAS leader, he was traveling all over the country, working under a great deal of stress and really around the clock. Even with all of this, he always had time to help me become a better consultant. Much has happen over the years and many of us have taken different paths, but never does a day goes by with a reminder of what Ralph did for me and others at Cyber Car. When I am asked to handle a concern for one of my clients, I always ask myself…how would Ralph handle this?”
e-Commerce Director at VW Southtowne
February 28, 2011, Bryan worked with Ralph but at different companiesWhen it comes to writing a recommendation for Ralph, one is hard pressed to do justice to the character and talents of this individual. "Iconic" is perhaps the only word that comes close to the impact he has made. He is without question a Mover and Shaker of the Automotive Industry. Never content to rest on his laurels, you can be assured that when he points to an industry trend, you can either get on board early, or spend a lot of resources later trying to catch up. More importantly, he is more often than not THE trend-setter with new, exciting, and out-of-the-box solutions that are quantifiable yet innovative.
The greatest thing about Ralph, and why I whole-heartedly adjure everyone to heed his advice and get to know this amazing individual, is that he has launched the career's and expanded the knowlege of countless individuals with no thought to personal reward and many times little thanks or recognition. He has Karma credit to spare and is genuine and honest.
I am proud to name him as a trusted resource and, more importantly, a respected friend.

National Field Manager at J. D. Power
November 24, 2010, Tom worked with Ralph but at different companiesIt would be very impressive just to talk about Ralph Paglia’s many accomplishments in his very accomplished career. But I wouldn’t be doing him proper justice.
I could state that Ralph is arguably the leading expert in the Digital Marketing world, particularly as it pertains to the automotive industry, but I would only be touching on his many talents, successful experience and self-taught skill set. What really separates Ralph from his peers is his personality, his strong integrity, his passion, and his willingness to be a coach, a mentor and a friend whenever the need arises. People just like being around his infectious personality. He is a motivator pure and simple.
In demand as a key note speaker and expert in his field, he brings to the table all the intangibles we look for in a leader. Any company who employs Ralph Paglia should realize what a valuable asset they have and any who might consider his services in the future should know that your team will be much better with his presence. He does not just solve problems, he tackles them, and his passion, determination and perseverance prevail. He can take your company from good to great.
I highly recommend Ralph Paglia and would suggest that he can be the difference maker for your company or organization.
- I first worked with Ralph as part of the Google team introducing Audio Ads to the market. Within weeks of hopping on a webinar, Ralph set up and was running radio campaigns for his Tier 2-3 clients. Ralph and crafted a business development partnership which expanded the relationship between ADP and Google.
Ralph is a visionary, technically adept and a leader in gathering the right people to make things happen. He is the best example of an internal champion (both for ADP and his clients). I worked with him again when I joined start-up Spot Runner and within weeks, he had my team in front of the right decision makers at Ford and ADP.
In an age where the traditional marketing funnel has been fragmented and new digital products/platforms/distribution methods are introduced at warped-speed, Ralph is one of the sharpest players in breaking through the clutter to optimize which will most impact his clients' bottom line. I'd happily work with him again (and if I'm exposed to or part of any new initiative) he'd be one of the first I'd reach out to.

November 10, 2010, Mary S. worked with Ralph but at different companiesRalph is a true automotive and social media thought leader. I had the pleasure of working with Ralph last year on an industry panel and found him to be a thoughtful, intelligent and collaborative panelist. Ralph and I continue to stay in touch via a number of social networking sites, including his Automotive Digital Marketing community. I continue to be impressed with not only the quantity and the quality of his contributions, but the scope of Ralph's industry knowledge, the depth of his connections, his profound passion for the digital automotive space and his willingness to share his expertise with others. I look forward to our professional paths crossing again.
- I don't think Ralph sleeps,,,, he certainly knows his way around a computer, he knows how to throw a great networking party and he knows the automotive business inside and out. Great guy!
