Does Your Succession Plan Reflect Your Long-term Vision? – Richard J. Bryan

Joining the CBT Automotive Network today is keynote speaker and author, Richard J. Bryan, who reminds us that planning for the unexpected by creating a succession plan is necessary for every business, especially within a dealership and for its principles.

Making sure you have a succession plan in place is something that every dealership should have, yet few actually do. Succession planning involves making sure that all roles at your dealership are properly filled with the right individual that meets all qualifications and needs. Some might find this to be a waste of time, especially if your dealership has no potential leadership gaps on the horizon but it’s vital for the success of your team, business, and sometimes even franchises. Bryan knows this all too well as he found himself in the middle of a transition phase with no plan outlined.
