Elevate 2019, the only people strategy summit for retail automotive, will take place in Chicago next month. The third annual event will bring together dealership HR leaders, dealer principals, general managers, chief financial officers, fixed ops managers and more, empowering attendees to set the people side of their dealerships up for success.
Each year, Elevate features a full lineup of expert people strategy speakers from both inside and outside the retail automotive industry. We recently announced the latest keynote speaker for Elevate 2019, Cheryl Miller, the newly appointed CEO and President at AutoNation, the largest new vehicle retailer in the U.S.
In addition to Cheryl, we’re excited to announce our latest Elevate 2019 speakers – Tamara Darvish, President, U.S. Operations at AutoCanada and Denise Bindelglass, Chief Human Resources Officer at ActiveCampaign.
