Fred O'Dwyer


Fred began his automotive career at Ford Motor Company where he worked closely with Ford Dealers as a District Manager.  After successfully completing a 20-year career at a metro Kansas City automobile dealership where he held the positions of controller, CFO and general manager, Fred joined NCM Associates as an executive conference moderator using his financial skills to assist members in analyzing and  maximizing performance. With his financial management expertise, NCM found him well suited for leading the organization as its CFO, and he held that position with distinction before transitioning to the NCM Institute faculty in 2012.  Fred’s outstanding dealership financial management knowledge and expertise is now being transferred to students of the Institute’s Principles of Financial Analysis, Principles of Advanced Financial Management programs and other core NCMi courses as well.
