I help Dealer Principals and Managers assess their dealership, starting with their financial statements and working backwards.

 

We may end up in the BDC, we may end up in fixed operations, it could be a management situation. But the truth is always told in your financial statement or 20 group composite. As your collaborative partner, I'm really only interested in one thing, your bottom line net profit. Together, we will identify missed sales and expense-cutting opportunities, then create customized daily KPI tracking tools, easy to follow practices, and ongoing support in order for your team to focus on the most imminent areas for rapid profit results.

As a Dealer Partner or General Manager since 1995 and three decades in dealerships in virtually EVERY position, I know as well as anyone what your chair feels like. As you know, this means that I have actually signed payroll checks, had to get approved as a dealer, and most importantly, I actually invested my own, hard-earned money into my dealerships as an owner. Whether I wanted to admit it or not, I needed more than a stuffy consultant or a self-professed trainer. I needed a “Roll-your-sleeves-up” partner with a combination of experiential profit statement-based knowledge and an absolute disdain for the status quo. 

My name is Danny Benites, nice to meet you. Let's get started.
