Since joining the GrooveCar family in 2017, Ernesto Gonzalez has been serving as a Dealer Relationship Manager in California. In his role, Ernesto not only manages and maintains existing relationships between our dealer and credit union partners, but he also prospects new potential dealerships to be part of our Preferred Dealer Network. Ernesto is also responsible for training dealers and assisting them with funding and any other issues they encounter, as well as helping them make data-driven decisions.
“Analyzing the feedback from our dealer partners on their leasing needs is a crucial part of the job,” Ernesto says. “We use the data to further target the vehicles that dealers need a program for so they can sell more units, constantly comparing lenders in the market to ensure we’re always on top and offering competitive pricing. That’s the key to a productive and successful partnership.”
