Saint Petersburg, FL October 10, 2018 – LotMonkey, a strategic in-dealership merchandising solution for franchise car dealers, independents, dealer groups and OEMs, today announced it has appointed automotive industry veteran Terry McSpadden as VP of Sales.
McSpadden brings almost thirty years of automotive industry experience to LotMonkey, including working all retail positions at the dealership level in multiple markets across the US.

McSpadden has worked hand-in-hand with OEM’s such as VW, Audi, Ford, CDJR and General Motors, developing business products and management training programs.

LotMonkey gives dealers complete creative control over the customization of their brand, their merchandising and their point of sale needs. They can now create a customer experience that encourages shoppers to buy and to return for service needs or future purchases,” McSpadden added.
