What is something [people in your industry] have to deal with that you want to fix? All dealerships have had an advertising provider promise a customized strategy but did not deliver. The dealer does not have time or knowledge to check in on their strategy so dollars are wasted before any change is made. AMG is tackling this issue by motivating and collaborating with vendor partners through our partner alignment tool, MOJO. We make sure our dealer partners are saving time and money with all things marketing so they can focus on their people, process and profits.
What do you do at AMG? I help dealers spend less time and money on marketing so they can spend that time and money on their people process and profits! - stole this from JT but it is embedded in my brain and reiterated above lol!
What are your credentials/past experience, for working in your position? Previously worked at Dealer.com/Cox Automotive for 8+ years. I started as an advertising sales consultant - focusing on Retail/OEM dealers in smaller groups. Then I was promoted into a Digital Sales Consultant where I focused on selling a holistic product set - during this time our job titles changed a lot but our job stayed the same. My last two years, I was an inside regional sales manager where I worked closely with an advertising sales consultant and a field sales representative.
What do you like about working at AMG? I could write an entire book on this on how we are offering a disruptive service but what I REALLY like about working at AMG is the people I work with - as cliche as it sounds, but we are a family and everyone is willing to help everyone. Coming from a corporate environment this took me a while to get used to!

Your top 3 favorite Movies/TV Shows? TV show - Yellowstone and Clickbait | Movie - The Departed and Fightclub
What would be your dream vacation? Turks and Caicos on a white sand beach with no cell phone reception
