DES MOINES, Iowa — CEO of Dealer Impact Systems, Brian T. Cox, announced today that he has resigned his position to become President and CEO at Flick Fusion Technologies.
In 1998, Cox founded Dealer Impact Systems, a privately held, full-service digital marketing and social media solutions provider that serves automotive dealerships across the United States.
Effective with Cox’s resignation, Patrick J. Shelton, Marketing and Sales Communications Director at Dealer Impact Systems, will become Managing Director of Dealer Impact Systems.
“In my 14 years at the helm of Dealer Impact, I’ve been very fortunate to lead a team of extremely talented colleagues,” said Cox. “With their help, Dealer Impact has generated many firsts in the digital marketing industry to become the leader it is today.” He added, “I’m leaving the company in very capable and trusted hands as I step into my new position at Flick Fusion.”
Based in Urbandale, Iowa, Flick Fusion Technologies is a privately held video technology company specializing in creating, managing, and distributing dynamic online and mobile videos that showcase dealer inventory on the world’s largest content delivery network.
Dealer Impact Systems and Flick Fusion Technologies operate independently.
“With the explosive growth in the video sector and the sheer demand across the industry, it’s simply the right time for me to make the move to Flick Fusion,” said Cox. “We’ll drive aggressive video development as well as leverage emerging technologies for our vendors and their clients, and work to deliver consistent bottom-line results for them — all powered by Flick Fusion.”
“At Flick Fusion, we don’t sell directly to auto dealerships,” continued Cox. “Instead, we develop strategic business-to-business relationships with automotive vendor partners nationwide — website providers, automotive portals, marketing agencies, etc. We help their dealer clients achieve the greatest exposure for their inventory on the internet via video.” He added, “We share dealer leads with all our vendors, empowering them as true business-to-business partners to best serve the needs of our mutual clients together.”
Shelton noted, “With Brian leading Flick Fusion’s initiatives to drive the enterprise aspect of that business, my mission is preserving and expanding Dealer Impact’s exceptional performance levels — levels that our clients have come to expect. We’ll remain dealer-focused and results-driven for our clients as we move forward,” he said.
