Tim is a lifelong “Car Guy”. Back in 1989, he started working at Jake Sweeney Hyundai in Kentucky and moved his way “up” in the business. Tim has been offered so many dealership positions, opportunities, experiences and sat in just about every seat in the dealership. Because this business has been so good to Tim and his family, he wanted to give back to this community. This is how TIMTALKS came to life: “I wanted to help today’s Automotive Dealerships get better – do better – be better.”
Tim’s goal through TIMTALKS is to chat with the best minds in the car business, and share as much usable and practical information possible to help dealers achieve their goals in increasing profits, customer service / loyalty, and overall employee retention. No matter your store or your relationship with CarNow, everyone is welcome at TIMTALKS.
