Nationwide Has One Goal: Success of Independents

Nationwide Marketing just recently held their twice-annual regional meeting in Winston-Salem, NC, where the full teams from all branches of the group came together to discuss what’s ahead for the remainder of 2016. Reg Meeting Group shot “This meeting really showcased that the collaboration between our Nationwide regional teams is key to our success, said Jeff Knock, CCO of Nationwide. “We continue to learn from each other what our members of all sizes need to succeed in their marketplace, which gives our group the opportunity to develop these assets and execute them quickly for our members to take advantage of.” Nationwide continues to develop initiatives that enable members to capture available share. Frank Sandtner, EVP of Member Services, said, “We take the time to inform our entire Nationwide team of what we have to offer as far as services, because it’s important that the staff at every office and out in the field knows what is available, in order to develop a customized plan with each member on the tools to help them succeed.” Nationwide’s regional divisions have headquarters in various locations of the US and Canada to serve as an accessible resource and handle the needs of the group’s entire membership roster. Dennis Willich, CEO of Nationwide Southwest, says, “I came away from the regional meeting with the feeling of absolute unity, strength, organization and power amongst all regions and divisions with one objective in mind – the independent dealer. We move forward with the mindset that our members are the crown jewels of our business.” Another focal point of the meetings was to reflect on the winter (March) PrimeTime! event and plan for what’s ahead for the summer (August) event. The group’s upcoming show will be held in Nashville, Tennessee from August 14-17, 2016.
