CHICAGO – September 11, 2018 – LotLinx, the automotive industry’s No. 1 artificial intelligence (AI) company, announced today that it has appointed Julie Cavanna-Jerbic to its board of directors. Cavanna-Jerbic, a seasoned C-level technology business executive and financial expert, will bring that expertise to LotLinx to advise leadership on how to sustain the company’s accelerated growth as it helps thousands of auto dealers across the U.S. optimize their marketing spend and sell inventory faster and more efficiently.
Cavanna-Jerbic spent nearly 30 years as a C-level executive and program leader at Hewlett-Packard, which culminated in her roles as a group CFO and CIO, where she directed high-profile initiatives in finance, sales account management and IT. Her work led to organizational transformations, financial integrations, and go-to-market turnarounds, which enabled top-line growth of 7 percent and over $1.7B of efficiency at the Fortune 500 company.
LotLinx will leverage Cavanna-Jerbic’s broad experience in account management strategy and data analytics to better understand the customer and competitive landscapes and fuel its high-growth trajectory, which earned it the top spot on the 2018 Crain’s Chicago Fast 50 list for fastest growing companies in the city. She will also offer her counsel to the company as it continues to add experienced leaders across its development, engineering, sales and executive leadership teams.
“Having spent much of my career in the Silicon Valley, where I continue to advise firms on accounting, finance and IT transformations, I recognize the great potential LotLinx possesses,” said Cavanna-Jerbic. “They have already changed the way many dealerships market their inventory, with a solution that leverages artificial intelligence and machine learning in a completely unique way. I am looking forward to offering my input on how the company can sustain its success well into the future.”
“It is incredibly valuable to have an experienced executive like Julie join our board,” said LotLinx Chairman and CEO Len Short. “Her wealth of experience will provide guidance and insight that few others can, and I am looking forward to collaborating with her as we take LotLinx to the next level in the auto industry.”
This fall, LotLinx will attend several industry events, including Digital Dealer 25, DrivingSales Executive Summit, Autovate, Used Car Week, Kain Automotive, Automotive Analytics and Attribution Summit. Members of the company’s leadership team will be present at many of these conferences to discuss the company’s plans for upcoming initiatives to continue to help dealers optimize media spend.
