LONG BEACH, CA.—(June 6, 2017) – FrogData is pleased to announce the hiring of David Shear as a Senior Consultant. In his new role Shear will focus on improving dealership performance using data analysis from FrogData to drive actions throughout the dealership.

“I’ve been on both sides of the industry, working as a Parts and Service Director, as well as a national trainer,” said Shear. “Communicating with all team members in a dealership is easy for me because I respect each person’s important role within the larger framework of the business. I’m also able to draw on my experience to share personal examples that demonstrate my understanding of their challenges, while providing potential solutions. I feel that I can help these companies not only retain their best customers, but also engage their most successful sales members.”
