AutoRevo Appoints Bill Berry as Vice President of Sales and Greg Gifford as Vice President of Marketing

The two industry veterans will work in tandem to continue to build AutoRevo’s sales and marketing departments.

DALLAS, TX – April 25, 2011 – AutoRevo, premier provider of dealer websites and on-demand software for automotive dealerships marketing and selling cars online, today announced the promotions of Bill Berry to Vice President of Sales and Greg Gifford to Vice President of Marketing. Mr. Berry will be charged with developing and implementing the sales plan and strategic initiatives to increase revenues and market share. Mr. Gifford will be responsible for heightening AutoRevo’s exposure in the market and for driving company growth through creative programs and marketing initiatives.

“Bill Berry joined the AutoRevo team in 2006, and immediately demonstrated the sales know-how to help AutoRevo grow,” said Chad Polk, AutoRevo CEO. “He has built our sales department from the ground up, helping us to achieve exponential growth both as a Sales Consultant and as National Sales Director. I’m excited to make him a part of our executive team, and I can’t wait to see his expertise help AutoRevo continue to grow.”

Bill relies on over 18 years of experience in leading the AutoRevo sales team. “I’m excited to elevate my game and lead such a talented sales team,” said Berry. “It’s going to be an exciting year. With the recent product updates we’ve released, our dealer websites are bar-none the best websites in the industry.”

“Greg Gifford joined us in 2007 as a member of our design team. Having owned his own successful web design company prior to AutoRevo, he had tons of valuable marketing experience, and was promoted to Director of Marketing in early 2009,” said Polk. “His marketing expertise has already propelled our marketing efforts to the next level. Greg’s hard work and dedication will be an invaluable asset to our executive team at AutoRevo.”

“It’s an extremely exciting time to be in the marketing arena,” said Greg Gifford. “With the proliferation of social media and the decline of traditional advertising methods, you’re wide open to be really creative and think way outside of the box. As the industry rebounds from the Great Recession, we’re in a key position to grab dealers’ attentions and take a huge share of the market.”
