ADM is a Professional Network, describe: "Why should anyone do business with you?"
vAuto was founded in 2005 by auto industry veterans who recognized a need to improve both profit and turn in used car departments throughout the United States. vAuto introduced the industry's first and only vehicle scoring system which provided financial insight into the key inventory management decisions that dealers make every day.

In 2007, vAuto launched a revolutionary new system in response to the rapidly changing market for used vehicles. The vAuto system has evolved into a suite of solutions that deliver a better way to price, appraise and stock used vehicles.

Each vAuto tool is powered by the industry's first "days supply" for used vehicles. vAuto monitors the market to deliver the most comprehensive competitive data offered in the automotive industry. Dealers can now benchmark every vehicle against its direct competition and make key decisions based on real-time supply, demand and price sensitivity in their market.

Sales Director

Here is what some of my dealers are saying:

- Anthony Bucceri, General Sales Manager, Sunrise Ford, Fontana, CA

“ Mark, everything you told me was absolutely true. Since we have been using vAuto, and my managers and I have found it to be a fantastic tool in our ever changing industry. Once I started pricing my vehicles according to vAuto’s market analysis, I almost immediately started receiving more hits on more of our vehicles. In addition, the support in all facets has been outstanding. Thank you for your great service.”
- Rob Lombard, President, Lombard Ford, Inc., Winsted, CT

"What will YOU contribute to the ADM Community?"
My experience has transcended every area of the automotive industry from my entire life. Starting as a "gofer" for our family dealership in Christchurch, New Zealand in 1973, I was then educated in all dealership departments by 2 of the very best in the business, my Dad and my brother.
Hard task master's with no tolerance for only the very best they were and I will be eternally grateful for those many years learning how great our industry can be when you do it right.
Emigrating to Los Angeles in 1981, my knowledge has taken me down many roads. I gained a vast experience in the Auto Finance business as Founding member of Lendco Acceptance Corporation, established in 1984 with strategic funding partners such as Xerox Corporation and A T & T Capital Corporation. As Senior VP of Sales & Marketing we funded over $ 2.8 Billion in receivables prior to our sale in 1991.
Following as President of a sub prime funding conduit I established warehouse lines and securitized Buy Here Pay Here seasoned pooled loans.
Addditionally over the years I have enjoyed the challenges as General manager of 2 different high line dealerships. I have experienced learning the intricacies of the Direct Response Marketing & Lead generation business including TV & Radio promotions, direct mail and Internet campaigns.
My current position as Sales Director for vAuto has provided me the privilege of bringing a new philosophy and the supporting technology that really has made a significant difference with many incredible testimonials of success to dealerships nationwide.
I do business the old way, a sincere presentation & expectation of a superior product, a commitment to support and a handshake will establish a solid business relationship. When you have that, you have success and you don't need a contract.

It is great to see you here... I am in my home office in Gilbert, AZ after getting out of the hospital where I was for a week fighting some type of bizarre drug-resistant Pneumonia... Nothing like a dose of mortality to reinforce one's own sense of humility! Anyways, I will be working out of my home office this coming week to prepare for my next digital marketing gun fight and trying to get caught up on expense reports.

Despite the fact that I should be doing something else, like some new OEM proposals, I just had to go online to see if there were any new Automotive Digital Marketing Group members for me to welcome. And, shazam, there you were, a new ADM Professional that I have not yet welcomed to our community!

On behalf of both myself, and the rest of the 1,650+ member ADM family, welcome to our online community and file sharing repository... We are very happy to see you have joined our community of automotive marketing and sales professionals.

Please take a moment to share some more information about yourself and your professional role. More information links, some blog postings with PPT, XLS, DOC and PDF files attached are particularly welcome. And of course we all love to see and listen to your music, photo and video uploads. I pay extra for additional server storage capacity for ADM and any valuable content you upload to make use of it is all appreciated.

Please note that you can upload documents into any blog post, forum discussion, group, comments and other sections for ADM members to download. There are already hundreds of PowerPoints, Excel Spreadsheets, Word Doc's, PDF files and more... We would be thrilled to get you to upload a few of yours to share with the community.

VERY IMPORTANT - All of us at ADM would very much appreciate it if you could please take the time to complete your profile section by uploading a photo showing your face... We love the bike, but most ADM members would like to put a face with your name and profile... Based on what i have seen since starting the ADM Professional Community at the beginning of 2008, I can promise you that you'll get more out of ADM when other members see that you have uploaded a profile photo!

I love seeing more and more automotive professionals and auto industry colleagues like yourself join the ADM community... When I checked the membership section a moment ago, I was pleasantly surprised to see that as of today, and thanks to your enrollment we are now up to over 1,650 automotive sales and marketing professionals who have joined the ADM Community... With help from automotive marketing professionals like yourself, we broke the 1,000 member mark on the 4th of July, 2008!

Amazing support from an amazing industry... Makes the aggravation of flying around the country with a guy sitting next to me who keeps sticking his elbow into my ribs, somehow worth it!

One of the greatest features that ADM provides is that you have full access to your very own blog web site within your personal profile section (here) of the ADM community. So feel free to get into the swing of things and use this website and the resources you get at no extra cost (because the ads here pay for them), as a means of sharing information, files, updates, proposals, photos, videos, etc.with your associates, customers, clients and friends!
