Why I work for DealerBuilt...

When I am asked why I work for DealerBuilt the first thing that usually comes to mind is the review I wrote about their DMS back in 2014 when we converted the dealership I was the GSM of over to their system. One of the things that impressed me then and still does is what an awesome team DealerBuilt has. The level of caring for their dealer partners and passion for building the best tools for auto dealers is second to none. When I left the retail car biz after 30 years of success I felt I have…See More

Mike theCarGuy on Auto Dealer Live!

I had a great time wishing the team of Auto Dealer Live a very happy seventh anniversary recently as they celebrated many years of bringing the latest and greatest to the folks of the automotive industry! Been a fan since the beginning and have had the opportunity to be on the show a few times, even met the team and thanked them in person for all they do for our biz too! There was some awesome discussion on social selling during the show, well worth catching the replay if you didn't see it…See More

People who know me describe me as ambitious, energetic and inspiring. My life is driven by passion for my wife and son – the look and feel of muscle cars – the smell of the drag strip – pretty much anything 80’s – and being a student and a teacher in the car business. How can I help you?
I am a true motivator and have the natural talent to energize those around me. My passion and enthusiasm are intrinsic and delivered it with the sole purpose to inspire others. Most of the time, I am viewed as the “go to guy” and seen as an expert in many areas. I find myself highly respected for my well-rounded knowledge of the auto industry, but I am best known for being the guy who leads, empowers and develops his people.
Instinctively, I often raise the spirits of other people by putting aside what I’m doing and giving my team member my undivided attention. With an eye for raw talent, I use this natural born gift to differentiate people by focusing on their strengths.
With a desire to learn and understand the ever-changing automotive industry, I keep the book of knowledge open. I gather all kinds of innovative and cutting edge data, then keep it at my fingertips in order to ensure my organization stays competitive in the market place.
Although bold and direct when I speak, those around me know they can trust what I am saying. You can count on my sincerity while engaging with others. I believe it's important to make time to meet and connect with my team, and build a platform to cultivate mutual trust and respect – two values, of which, I will not compromise. During my daily mode of operation, I consistently leverage these values by walking the talk and delivering quantifiable results.
Keeping it real, you can expect me to entertain with a quick wit and a great sense of humor. I believe laughter is the best therapy and in business, I believe in providing a car buying experience that is extraordinarily pleasant and positively memorable.
