By Beth Kempton

Elevate 2019, the only people strategy summit in retail automotive, is less than two months away. Hireology’s third annual summit will empower attendees to map out next steps to turn the people side of the business into a source of profitability and competitive advantage.

At Elevate 2019, attendees will have the opportunity to connect, collaborate and champion the people side of their dealerships with fellow retail automotive leaders. The summit will also feature Cheryl Miller, CEO and President at AutoNation, the largest new vehicle retailer in the U.S. Cheryl was appointed to her position on July 22, 2019 and is the first female CEO of a publicly traded automotive dealer.

Prior to her role as CEO, Cheryl joined AutoNation in 2009 and served as CFO since 2014. AutoNation has achieved several significant milestones under Cheryl’s leadership including the reorganization of AutoNation’s operational and financial footprint, resulting in a more streamlined and efficient core business.

Attend Elevate 2019 to hear from Cheryl directly about AutoNation’s growth and learn more about how the largest dealership group is thinking about its people strategy to drive success and performance.

In previous years, speakers have included: Chris Holzshu, Executive Vice President at Lithia Motors, Sherri Menard, Vice President of Human Resources at Fox Motors and Billy Beane, Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations for the Oakland A’s & Subject of Moneyball, to name a few.

The full agenda and speaker lineup will be announced soon – stay tuned.
