Over the last 25 years, I have been laser focused on creating shareholder value by enhancing sales operations through innovation that drives performance. I’ve been fortunate to build and develop record breaking digital online sales organizations which exceeded annual revenue goals and expanded brand visibility. Early in my career I held various roles at Cox Auto Trader throughout my 17 years there. In 2016, I accepted the role as South Region Director for TRUECar, and later promoted to Director of Sales Operations where my teams achieved record breaking sales and rapidly expanded the dealer network. Recently, I developed the start-up sales strategy and execution plan for one of America’s most trusted brands, Walmart. As VP of Sales, I led the Dealer Enrollment sales teams for the Walmart affinity auto buying program, CarSaver in addition to supporting OEM initiatives as well as the development of digital retail upgrade software sales.
