Customer satisfaction and customer retention are paramount for a dealerships long term success!


So…..how can you make sure that your entire team understands this and performs at its highest level??


You HAVE to build a culture!


Here is a link to a blog that I wrote about building a culture:


Are you just training them or are you building a culture?



It doesn’t happen by accident or all by itself!


It takes a tremendous amount of communication, training, coaching, understanding, processing, inspecting, passion, personality and attitude!



Here are the ACTUAL CSI numbers of a Dealership where I was able to lead them in understanding just how important customer satisfaction AND retention are!


Look at the change from December of 2009, where this dealership was 987th place out of a little over a 1000 Honda stores nationally, to 18th place in just 6 months!








AND…..here are the numbers from the dealership in Florida where I was a Partner / Vice President / General Manager








As you can see, the consistent building of the culture within the dealership reaps big rewards!


If your dealership or team is NOT producing theses kinds of numbers or building the correct type of culture…..its time for a change!



I am looking for a General Managers position with a dealer that wants to build a great team of people all going in the same direction!



When you build a great team of people all going in the same direction, you build a confident and competent group that performs at extraordinary levels of customer retention AND profits!!



Here is the link to the “Customer Retention” section of my video website. Take a look at the 4 videos I have there that all are 3 minutes in length.
