“When you love what you do, then it is easy to put in the extra effort. I work with a fantastic team; when the chance arises to help any of my colleagues, I happily raise my hand and offer support.”
As part of a monthly series that profiles a wide variety of jobs at Cox Automotive Canada, we sat down with Katelynn Ross, District Manager, Dealer.com.
At a very high level, can you describe the role you play at CAC?
As a District Manager of Digital Solutions, I am responsible for fostering relationships with our dealer partners and aiding them in creating an end-to-end Digital marketing solution for their businesses. This is all backed by our website platform that is built from unrivaled consumer insight.
Since joining CAC, have you had opportunities to expand your skillset and grow your career through any training, experiences or new roles?
Yes! I am very grateful to be working for a company that recognizes when you go above and beyond. My managers saw that I could offer additional support to my team outside of my regular role. They encouraged me to get more involved. With my manager’s support and guidance, Cox Automotive has expanded my role to include some additional responsibilities. I am now working with more team members across the organization and have opened the door to grow my career faster than I ever thought.
How does CAC inspire you to go above and beyond the call of duty?

Every one of my colleagues at CAC has the same philosophy. It is a refreshing and encouraging culture that inspires you to go above and beyond every day.
What advice would you give a new CAC team member?
Never be afraid to share your ideas or speak up! Across our organization, you are encouraged to get involved and share ideas to improve our products, culture and organizational benefits. Also, remember to lean on your team-mates and, most importantly, have fun.
Why should someone consider joining CAC?
If you are someone looking for a company that inspires you to share your ideas, learn and grow your skill set, CAC is for you! I have had the chance to develop my career, volunteer in my community and learn from my friends and colleagues.
