This was the most eye-opening training in my 32-year career.

Mark Alexander, Sales Manager, Sunnyside Acura

I have been in the used car business a long time but never fully understood that it is not about per vehicle gross it is about total gross and the true return on investment. I feel like I have been in the dark ages and this has turned on the light.

Tom Sullivan, General Sales Manager, Best Ford Lincoln

After spending 16+ years in the business I learned more about asset management in this course than I ever could have expected. Every manager needs to attend this class.
