Mississauga, Ont.—October 9th, 2017—One of Cox Automotive Canada’s key events for 2017’s fourth quarter was the annual Dealertrack Lender Conference.
Held at Cox Automotive’s headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia from October 1-4th, the conference touched on various areas of strategic focus, including investing in fleet management and maintenance, leveraging data and analytics, expanding internationally, as well as strategic investments in mobility and transportation as a business.
Key executives, including John Bailey, President, Cox Automotive International, Mark O’Neil, Executive Vice President Chief Operating Officer, and Maria Soklis, President of Cox Automotive Canada, engaged clients throughout the event.
“Over the last few years, we’ve heard many economic experts speak about an industrial revolution. We will likely witness more change in the next five years than we have ever witnessed in history. Despite the uncertainty that comes with this change, there is also excitement – excitement derived from sheer opportunity to completely reinvent ourselves and change the way the world buys, sells and owns cars,” said Soklis, who was also a keynote speaker at the event, seen above.
In total, 46 senior executives from leading Canadian banks, captives, subprime lenders, and credit unions, along with 14 new attendees, participated in the conference.
