Pleasanton, CA — April 4, 2017 — Dashboard Dealership Enterprises, a leader in reporting solutions for auto dealers, today announced it has hired Kip Miles, an operational veteran of the retail automotive industry, as Vice President of Sales/Marketing. In his new position Miles will be responsible for new business development, sales and marketing for all Dashboard Dealership Enterprises’ products. This will include its flagship product, “Executive Eye,’ a premier data analytics and reporting product that automates the entire management reporting process, from data collection to report creation, and even predictive and goal-related performance analysis.
“I am thrilled to join such a dynamic and growing company that is making a difference in the automotive industry by helping dealerships understand how to use business intelligence tools to make decisions that increase profitability. Business intelligence analytics are now as important to car and truck dealers as the DMS, CRM, or vAuto. Executive Eye delivers this critical information to dealers at a time when margins and expense are under pressure like never before,” said Miles. “From best practices to operational disciplines to ’cause and effect’ warning signs, I will help bridge those gaps. Dealerships operate best when they adhere to the ‘no surprises’ rule,” Miles added.
Miles has over three decades of retail automotive experience in sales, leadership and management, covering the full spectrum of new car franchises. He began his automotive career washing cars and answering phones at his father’s Chevrolet dealership. From there he moved upwards and exceled in each chair, including Dealer Principal. Throughout his long career he has successfully owned and operated domestic, import, luxury and exotic dealerships.
“Kip has an incredible track record in this industry and we are fortunate to have him join our team. He brings a unique understanding of key dealership operational pain points as he has literally been there and experienced just about every area,” said Josh Blick, Dashboard Dealership Enterprises CEO. “As the auto industry’s business intelligence pioneer, we have invested over 15 years in the automotive space solving and optimizing complex problems through laser-focused delivery of actionable data. Kip will be an invaluable asset to help us empower our dealers with a critical focus on business metrics. With his operational experience he can help both our existing dealers and new clients,” Blick continued.
