What Would You Ask TrueCar's CEO Scott Painter At #DSES?

Everyone in the car business seems to have a opinion about TrueCar's CEO Scott Painter. Everyone seems to have the right answer or solution to the problems associated with TrueCar's business model. And of course, everyone has a question about what's going on with their current activities. 

Well, Jared Hamilton is giving you the ability to ask questions about TrueCar's views on the industry, their new business model and anything else you want to address. DrivingSales has always been a conduit of premier access to the best events, people and resources. We encourage your involvement to help make this year's DrivingSales Executive Summit the best ever. 

And, in typical DrivingSales style, here's our full disclosure and transparency on a hot issue: Topics and sponsors at DSES are requested by the dealer community. The topic of TrueCar and their business model was also requested. So, we did what we do best and Scott Painter agreed to an Q&A session with Jared. And no, this isn't a "gotcha" session to corner him; he's willing to accept questions from the community and address them in a professional setting. And yes, they're a sponsor. No, not a "major" sponsor - a mid-level sponsor at best. One's sponsorship level doesn't create any special treatment with regards to speaking and stage presence. However, the level of demand from the dealer board does.

DSES is the hottest automotive conference ticket this fall. (Only five tickets remaining for DSES as I write this) Send us your questions, get involved and be heard - send them to Lindsey Auguste.

Still need a ticket to DSES? Better hurry up, they're almost all gone! Register here.

1. What happened in the past year that caused Scott to change his perspective on the "car salesperson" as unnecessary? 2. If he owned a dealership, how would he structure his pay plan for sales and management?

For as much brouhaha there was over Scott Painter I can't believer there are not more questions. Here are a few I would ask in additon to Rob. • What really happened with the Yahoo partnership. • What there marketing plans are for Q412 and Q113 • What’s new for 2013. • What does HE think was behind the uproar at the state level. • Any maybe for fun; “has his legal bills gone down?”.
