February 14, 2010 -- Sean Wolfington has agreed to serve as Chairman of the Board of VinSolutions, the industry leading automotive "Dealership Marketing System" that helps retailers attract, sell and retain more customers profitably.
"We asked Sean to join our board because of his vision and his unique experience leading some of the most successful marketing and consulting companies in the industry," said Doug Kinney, CEO of VinSolutions.
Wolfington co-founded and led Cyber Car and Automark (sold to Reynolds and Reynolds in 2001) and BZ Results (sold to ADP in 2006). Wolfington currently owns Tier 10 and Level 5 Marketing and serves on the board of the Lumen Institute.
"After I saw the power of their all-in-one system to do everything a dealer needs I had to get involved. Their system reminds me of Apple, because they revolutionized the automotive technology market the way apple revolutionized the mobile market," said Wolfington.
VinSolutions offers retailers one platform that integrates all of the tools they need to run their business and it integrates with all the main DMS systems including ADP, Reynolds, AutoSoft and Arkona. "I was spending too much to 15 different companies that did not integrate and now I pay 75% less for one system that does it all and more," said Todd Crossley from Crossley Ford, the #1 Ford retailer in the Kansas City Market. "Now I have one system that does everything from managing my internet marketing to desking and financing in one system that is easy to use."
"We work tirelessly so we continue to have the best technology in the industry and we invited Sean to join our team because we want to have the best team in the industry," said Mike Dullea, co-founder and COO.
