In founding DrivingSales, Jared Hamilton created the largest automotive social network in the world, where 64 percent of dealerships in North America have created a profile.
Hamilton serves on the board strategy committee for the National Automotive Dealers Association and has been a guest instructor for the National Dealer’s Academy.
As a response to the Great Recession’s impact on the automotive industry, Hamilton brought together dealers, OEMs and technology vendors in what has become the largest annual gathering of the most progressive execs in the industry. Each year, about 1,300 senior automotive execs gather at the Executive Summit to collaborate on the future of the auto industry and to fine-tune their business plans for the following year amidst the rapid pace of change.
“Get really clear about where your goals are. There are lots of different ways to solve a problem. When you know what that problem is you can unpack the various paths and pick which path is best for you … when you have clarity around your goals, you can make all the decisions that flow up to it much easier.”
