“It’s all about the customer first and we’re on the same page for sure,” says Brent McGavock, Dealer Principal for the McGavock Auto Group. “One of the reasons we partnered with the College of Automotive Management is because of the one-on-one support. We’re not just another number. It’s like a family and that’s what I like best. You can pick up a phone and talk to somebody right away, and they’ll say ‘yeah, let’s try!’”
The content of CAM’s training aligns very well with McGavock’s company culture and values, which makes them a natural fit.
