Hey fellow Automotive Professionals! I just found out my husband and I are re-locating to Atlanta, GA. I've been looking at several dealerships in that area, but it's SUCH a large market up there and I'm having a problem narrowing down what automotive groups I should be pursuing. Sonic Automotive keeps popping up in conversations as a good group, I'm staring to look at their BMW store in north Atlanta. I'm looking for a BDC Management, Internet sales, or maybe even a BD agent position. I've got great references from both dealerships I've worked for, and would be more than happy to provide them as well as my resume. Do you guys know of anything that I might be interested in?
Have you considered using your ILM / CRM (or other vendor you like) provider as a resource? You may find that they know who the "power" players are in the area you are moving to. Additionally, you might get lucky enough to stay with the same system(s) to speed up your integration.
Hope it helps,
(years back I spent a few months in Newnan, GA just outside of PeachTree. Nice folks.)
I recently started working at Dyer & Dyer Volvo, a Sonic Automotive dealer as the BDC & Esales Manager. Thank you for your advice :)
Sounds like a great opportunity Brittany.
Welcome to Atlanta. Y'all settled in yet? I'm assuming that you've landed a position by now, but if you're looking for additional opportunities please feel free to call me. I represent a dealer group in town that has two Nissan Stores, two Kia Stores and a Toyota Store. We're also looking at possibility getting another Nissan point. That being the case, we're a growing organization and have several opportunities. Call me anytime at 404-229-3857
