Passions for David:
One of his passions has kept him very active in studying and improving the income and selling process of automobile sales people. Watching the alarming turnover rate of sales people the last 3 decades warranted time and energy to find out why the turnover rate was so high and then do something about it. The national average income of automobile income is approximately $43,000 and David believes this should be about $100,000 to attract the right talent pool of sales people so that we could give the right kind of buying, delivery, and ownership experience the customers want and deserve. This is still and ongoing passion for David.
His second passion is sales training and continues to have a training activity and process 6 days a week. One of his sayings is " Selling vehicles is fun, Training is fun, We are best in the end when it counts the most."
David's main hobby "is the car business” but when he is not working he enjoys trying to be a BBQ Pit Master.
David started selling Chevrolets in his home town of Columbus, MS in 1978. After winning salesman of the month for 36 months he was promoted to management there. After considerable growth he was recruited to manage a Cadillac dealership in Memphis, TN. After considerable growth in sales and profits over a 15 year period and with the help of GM he was able to buy a Pontiac Buick GMC dealership in Green Brook, NJ. Now at the end of his 16th year he has won Mark of Excellence about 15 times and Dealer of The Year 9 times with either Pontiac or Buick or GMC. Two years ago with the help of General Motors he acquired a Chevrolet dealership in Bridgewater, NJ that is growing at a good pace.
