Meet our presenter: Cliff Banks
Cliff Banks brings 30 years of experience working in the automotive retail industry with the last 20 spent covering it as a journalist and analyst.
He is the founder of The Banks Report, a newsletter focused on investment and trends in the automotive retail space. He also is the founder of AUTOVATE, an annual summit bringing automotive technology investors and executives together to highlight investment opportunities and future trends in vehicle transportation.
As an editor of two automotive-related media companies -- WardsAuto's auto retail publications and the Digital Dealer magazine and conferences, he built a vast network of relationships including investors, CEOs, and dealership employees. His analysis and insights identify trends before they become trends and helps him often predict acquisitions and deals before they happen. As one CEO once said, “Cliff writes about the news before it becomes news.”
Topics we'll be discussing:
- How EV and connected vehicle initiatives are changing the dealer / OEM relationship.
- What will the long-lasting impact of increased dealer consolidation be?
- State of Colorado is making it hard for consumers to buy, own, drive and park cars. What happens next with ETRP?
