Default Change of leadership

Chrysler has replaced Sergio with Mike Manley. Sounds like Sergio is ill and not doing well.

I read that Sergio is on a ventilator.

That's a crying shame

CNBC had Jim Press on as a "special guest", and it was sickening.

I listened to him ; talk about removed from reality. I must be missing something when it comes to Mr Press and his skills in the car business.

The short timeframe in which everything went down is kind of alarming. He did a great many things for Fiat and Chrysler over the last 15 years but I am not surprised that he seemingly kept everyone out of the loop on his condition.

No love lost here.
I don't believe he was ever a dealers friend or ever had the dealers interests in any of his so-called 5 yr plans.
I can only hope and pray that Mr. Mandly recognizes the dealer body as an asset.

We talked about this a bit in the last few weeks too. Sergio was definitely not a friend of the dealer body. Mr. Manley has a retail automotive background, so we shall see how things pan out in the near term.

we can only hope that someone is strong enough to end the stair step madness, and return our new car retail business to at least a potential profit center again. the only members of our twenty group making money on new cars have some creative accounting going on.

There was a chance until the stair step money has been reduced over the last few years. If you are a regular 100% VGP achiever the average VGP per unit has been cut in half over the last few years... or pretty close to that.

Will be interesting to see what happens.
