1. Tracy, tell us a little bit about Frank Myers Auto Maxx and your own career in the auto industry?

Once upon a time (when I was much younger), I was rebellious and wanted nothing to do with the family business. So I packed my bags & went off to college. A few odd jobs later, I was searching for a better way to make money while going to school. That’s when I got a job at a nearby Toyota dealership and caught the bug real bad. I was in class from 8am to 1 pm and sold cars from 3pm to midnight and was promoted to Sales Manager in less than a year. I was only 19 years old and thought I knew everything so I quit school to make money in the car business. And all of this happened without my father’s knowledge! With that kind of experience and success under my belt, I thought it would be a great time to go to work for the family business. My dad welcomed me into the business and gave me a job right away…in the detail shop! I went from making $80,000 a year to minimum wage and I was really discouraged…but in hindsight that was the best thing he ever did for me. I am glad my Dad didn’t give me a free ride. My mom and I have a joke that I have worked out of every office in the dealership at least twice.

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.
