Overland Park, Kan., June 1, 2015 – NCM Associates originated the automotive dealer 20 Group peer collaboration model over 70 years ago. Since 1947, NCM has been empowering noncompeting dealers to share best practices, strategies, and pitfalls with one another. As a 100% employee-owned company, NCM provides automotive retail consulting and management training, operations Benchmark analysis, business intelligence management and tools to the automotive industry, as well as 20 other industries across the US and Canada.
NCM is excited to welcome a new group of Chrysler dealers to its 20 Group clientele with the launch of the Chrysler Performance 20 Group, which held its inaugural meeting in May 2015. The efforts to establish this group began when some Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram dealer principals approached NCM about their desire to build an NCM group. NCM then went to work preparing its systems and staff, communicating the opportunity to the CDJR dealer audience. On May 18-19, member dealers and GMs attended their first NCM Chrysler Performance 20 Group meeting led by Kevin Cunningham and Robert Neuman, NCM executive conference moderators.
“We are humbled by our clients’ willingness to put in the time and effort to improve their dealership performance and the trust they have in NCM to help them succeed,” said NCM President & CEO Paul Faletti, Jr. “Our clients rely on us to provide the best 20 Group experience possible, and thanks to a deep bench of experienced retail automotive experts and a great support team behind all our groups, we’re able to help them achieve their performance improvement goals.”
Robert Neuman, who joined NCM in May 2015, will lead the new group as moderator for the Chrysler Performance 20 Group. Neuman is a seasoned automotive industry expert with 32 years of experience in new and pre-owned retail and OEM operations, having held various fixed, variable, and executive management positions during his career.
“Given Robert’s extensive automotive background, he is well positioned to add value and ensure a unique 20 Group experience for this Chrysler group as well as his other groups,” Trevor Robinson, NCM director of retail solutions, said. “NCM is excited to have professionals of his caliber on our team.”
