The National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) Selects Dennis McGinn, Rapid Recon CEO, to Host Effective Reconditioning Panel at NADA '23
PALO ALTO, CA - January 09, 2023
The National Automobile Dealers Association convention is the auto industry's most prominent education event and, for the third year in a row, has selected Rapid Recon founder and chief executive officer Dennis McGinn to moderate an expert panel discussing Effective Reconditioning for Both Retail and Wholesale Markets.
McGinn and the panel – dealers Matt Hubiak, Tom Dunn, and Jared Ricart - will present at NADA on Thursday, January 26, at 2:30 PM at Dallas' Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center. The convention runs from January 26 to 29, 2023.
As a convention exhibitor, Rapid Recon is located at Booth 6001.
The auto industry faces economic challenges, inventory shortages, and high vehicle costs. Combined and individually, these pain points require auto dealers to embrace technology advancement, best practices, and enhanced transparency and efficiency standards.
At last year’s NADA workshops, a session also moderated by McGinn, Transparency in the Buying Process, was one of the most popular sessions presented that year and to a standing-room-only crowd.
For 2023, McGinn and the panel will discuss how they appraise trade-ins factoring in increased reconditioning costs based on the current market, supply chain, and market demand.
McGinn is the author of three books on building transparency, efficiency, and accountability into dealership reconditioning, the core driver of improved customer engagement. His fourth book, Strategic T2L - Connect to What You Expect, will be available at NADA, Booth 6001.
McGinn and the panel will present on Thursday, January 26, at 2:30 PM. This session is expected to be one of the most popular at NADA due to the industry's respect for the panel members, which include:
Jared Ricart, President of Ricart Automotive, is a new and used car dealership on the 67-acre Ricart Mega Mall in southeast Columbus, Ohio.
Tom Dunn, General Manager at Fred Martin Superstore, a new and used dealer of Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, RAM, and FIAT vehicles.
