Overland Park, Kan., June 15, 2015 – NCM Associates originated the automotive dealer 20 Group peer collaboration model nearly 70 years ago in Kansas City, Mo. Since 1947, NCM has been empowering non-competing business owners and operators 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, and data management tools to the automotive sector, as well as to 20 other industries across the US and Canada.
After nearly 35 years in Overland Park, Kan., NCM recently signed a 10-year lease and will move its headquarters back to the Country Club Plaza area in Kansas City, Mo., in the fall of 2015. NCM will lease more than 36,000 square feet, which will accommodate its 84 locally-based associates with room to meet the growing company’s future needs. The space includes a professional video studio, a full-production print shop, and gives the company’s management training division, the NCM Institute, separate administrative offices and a state-of-the-art training facility for its classroom and virtual training programs.
“We are fortunate to be experiencing growth, thanks to our great clients who’ve entrusted us with their dealership performance development,” said NCM President & CEO Paul Faletti, Jr. “This investment in our new headquarters signifies our commitment to our clients as well as the appreciation of the hard work of our employee-owners and the local community for the foreseeable future. Over the years, NCM Associates has been honored to support a number of local and national charities from our Overland Park location, and we will continue that tradition in support of our new Plaza-area neighbors,” he said.
NCM’s new headquarters will be located at 4717 Grand Ave, Kansas City, Mo., 64112, a few short blocks from its original office at the Kansas City Board of Trade building.
“I started my career with NCM more than 36 years ago, when it was located on the Country Club Plaza,” said Nikki Lear, NCM senior composite specialist & product developer. “I’m thrilled to finish my working years back in the same area where it all began.”
