Friendemic Adds Over 50 Years of Automotive Expertise to their Client Success Team
Client success is a critical part of any organization, and effective communication is paramount. These days partners are pushing for more automation via emails, chat services, and offshore interaction. We at Friendemic feel that if you’re going to cultivate and develop a true partnership, you must have more “Dealer People.” As a result, we’ve worked to step up our game and include more automotive industry background members, with laser-focus on communication and relationship building. Friendemic has recently added five new automotive experts to their Client Success team totaling 56 years in the industry. We’re proud of the additions to our team and want to share their stories with you!
Rich has been working with automotive clients and software companies for over 14 years. He has held multiple leadership positions within such companies as CDK, Red Bumper, Ristken, and American AutoXchange. Rich’s background consists of creating, developing, and managing teams in providing client solutions for automotive dealers and further building long term relationships with clients across the US.
John has been in the auto industry for over 10 years. He started working at ADP (now CDK) installing DMS and CRM servers for clients like Group 1 and Larry Miller. He then moved on to managing the install and support teams in the inventory management and marketing space. John is versed in the install, support, and management of both small and large clients from DMS to CRM to Equity and Marketing.
Jerauld has 15+ years in dealership experience ranging from advisor to fixed ops manager at one of the largest luxury groups in the country. Then Jerauld moved on to be a CSR overseeing 60+ accounts in the southwest region for the auto industry leader in vehicle tracking and recognition software. In both positions, Jerauld worked directly with dealerships and OEM’s of all brands ranging from Toyota to Bugatti.
Daniel has been in the auto industry since 2007. Daniel’s expertise is at the dealership level (in the weeds, as Daniel refers to it) which allows him to see how the implementation of Friendemic’s tools or products work to provide the greatest amount of success for the dealership. Daniel’s understanding of the inner workings of the dealership’s day-to-day processes allows for better communication with Friendemic’s automotive clients.
Tiffany started in the auto industry in 2014 as a BDC agent for four dealerships in a larger automotive group. She later moved into a management training position. For the past two years, she was training and assisting in managing a multi-dealership BDC as well as training salespeople from four dealerships (three automotive and one motorsports) in the dealer group’s CRM.
