Welcome the newsest DrivingSales team member!

I’m very happy to announce the latest member of the DrivingSales team, Lindsey Auguste!
 
Lindsey will serve as our Editorial Director and will oversee some exciting plans we have to develop a stream of premium content for the community. (More on this later…)
 
Lindsey AugusteLindsey is amazingly smart and lots of fun, she will fit right in with everyone here on DrivingSales.  Prior to joining us, she worked at Stanford University, where she did research for their Psychology Department.  She is originally from the Bay Area, in Northern California and she graduated from Chapman University in Orange County. While in So Cal she got her first taste of the auto industry by working part time at a local dealership. As you all know, no matter how hard we try, when the car business bug bites you, you’re a lifer!

As mentioned earlier, Lindsey will be working to manage some streams of premium content that we are developing. We will be doing regular research papers on dealership best practices and industry trends. We will soon be launching regular columns about industry leaders and some of the cool things they are doing.  We also have few surprises we are not quite ready to let out yet...  but these will be announced soon.
 
The objective of the DrivingSales community has remained the same since I first created it back in 2003 to network my Dealer Academy class together. DrivingSales is built to connect dealers with the people and information they need to be the most successful. The community is about you, the members and making each of your dealership departments more profitable.
 
Lindsey is here to serve the community by ensuring that we generate top of the line, relevant information while making sure each member has the ability to contribute in the ways they want. If you have any ideas or content that you’d like to see, would like to contribute through a featured blog or just want to say hi, don’t hesitate to contact her at lindsey@drivingsales.com.  

Please give Lindsey a warm welcome to the community.
