A Candid Conversation with Automotive News

I had the honor of participating in Automotive News’ Daily Drive podcast with publisher Jason Stein this week.

He was interested in diving deeper into the open letter I published here last Friday. In the episode, Stein asks about the open letter, retail/wholesale market conditions and recommendations for managing inventories in the current environment.

On a related note, I will be taking up these topics in even greater depth at 2 p.m. this Tuesday in a Cox Automotive webinar. I’ll be joined by Manheim M Logic’s Ben Flusberg and vAuto’s Chris Stutsman. We’ll be discussing the open letter, wholesale/retail market highlights and some bright spots in both markets. The webinar is part of a new weekly series Cox Automotive is producing to help dealers in this time of crisis.

You can register for the Tuesday webinar here.
