Drive Motors, a company creating online car purchasing option for some of the biggest car dealer groups, banks, and other brands around the nation, recently announced the hiring of Chris Gygliotta as their new Head of Strategic Partnership, a brand new position. Gugliotta will report directly to CEO Aaron Krane and will be in charge of Drive Motors' omnichannel online car buying tools for dealers and manufacturers.
"Drive Motors is solidifying its position as the leader of transparent car buying for auto dealers, and forging strategic partnerships is going to accelerate Drive's sustained growth," said Gugliotta. "I'm excited to join the executive team, and I'm proud to offer Drive the connections and expertise I've developed throughout my decades-long career."
With over 20 years' experience in technology, automotive, and retail sales, Gugliotta has built a successful career in helping organizations become industry leaders by developing and implementing their growth strategies and go-to-market plans. In 1996, he started at Lithia Motors, one of the fastest-growing Fortune 500 companies, where he developed and scaled internet-marketing and ecommerce teams for more than a decade. He then spent over half a decade leading growth efforts at Dealer.com, ultimately rising to the post of Vice President of Sales for Cox Automotive. Most recently, his career came full-circle, as he returned to Lithia to lead innovation and online sales strategy.
"We're elated to welcome Chris to the team, given his deep vertical automotive expertise and his passion for delivering great consumer experiences with technology," said Krane. "His experience is vast, spanning top dealer groups like Lithia, as well as top technology companies like Cox Automotive. That is clutch."
