In this episode, host Lou Ramirez and co-host Fred Lennartz, of the popular Car Guy Coffee Podcast, interview special guest Michael Cirillo. It's a big ol' switcheroo!
Michael, who is the CEO of FlexDealer, an automotive marketing and technology company, will be a featured Keynote Speaker at the 2023 NIADA Accelerate Convention & Expo at the Wynn Resort in Las Vegas on June 22nd at 4:00 pm.
If there's one thing Michael has learned throughout his many years of experience in the auto industry and hundreds of Dealer Playbook podcast episodes, it's that putting people first is an absolute key to long-term growth and success.
What We Discuss In This Episode:
The Power Of Building Relationships Of Trust
The conversation takes a deep dive into the concept of building relationships of trust. Michael shares how putting people first and prioritizing customer satisfaction can be the key to long-term growth and profitability. By focusing on creating partnerships and fostering trust, dealerships can enhance customer loyalty and attract new business.
In his address 'The Power of Building Relationships of Trust,' Cirillo will be sharing anecdotes from his visits with dealers and employees in the car business and the lessons he’s picked up along the way. Over the years, Cirillo has witnessed a shift in the industry past the focus of moving metal to growing people, which ultimately leads to desired results.
"We’re thinking more about people and it’s contributing to profits,” says Cirillo. “But it’s not just 'people;' it's the focus on happy people that is making the biggest difference.”
