1. Eric, tell us a little bit about Auction Direct USA and your own career in the auto industry?

Auction Direct USA Superstore is a unique used cars dealer intent on changing the way consumers buy used cars. We’re passionate about improving the entire buying process for automotive consumers – starting with the online experience, the in-store experience and continuing with the post sale relationship. Every element is fertile ground for improvement. My automotive industry experience actually began with Auction Direct three years ago, shortly after the company opened its doors. I’m not a traditional car guy and have never worked for a dealership. From my perspective, we’re not selling cars, we’re making it easier and more enjoyable for people to find their perfect vehicle.

Since then I’ve moved to Steve White, who has a real vision for the internet’s place in a dealership, and consistently do over 30% of the sales volume… and it’s growing every day!
