Profile of an Industry Expert
From time to time we introduce our recruiters. This month we share the background
of Jeff Sacks. Jeff Sacks is an Industry Expert in Financial and Operational aspects
of a Car Dealership.
Jeff Sacks is considered one of the premier experts in dealership operations with
a 30+ year career that warrants the high regard he’s held in.
Jeff immigrated to the United States in 1977 and immersed himself in the world of
car dealership operations. He gained a degree in accounting and one in business
finance, and together with his ‘in the seat’ practical experience, he
carved out an enviably unique insight into dealership operations that has helped
many clients across the global automotive industry.
After gaining first-hand experience in a variety of dealerships, Jeff established
Jeff Sacks & Associates, a consulting company dealing with the specific needs
of his automotive clients. Years later, he created and facilitated the General Manager’s
Bootcamp. In 2009, Jeff returned to his roots as operating President with Jeff Sacks
& Associates (Jeff Sacks Auto) in order to provide customized programs to his
clients, including the highly respected General Manager Workshop.
In 2010, looking to fill a gap in the industry, Jeff created a virtual training
series for general managers focusing on dealership parts, service and account departments.
The quality and practical applicability of this program was validated when NADA
University selected Jeff (and his virtual program) as an NADA University Partner,
one of only a select few in the country.
Jeff’s passion and vision in the industry has made him a sought-after speaker,
helping to improve dealership functionality relating to process improvement strategies,
asset and expense controls, computer utilization, management information systems
Anyone who saw Jeff's 'Standing Room Only' workshop sessions at this year's NADA
will understand his skill and charisma as a speaker, and know exactly why over 850
Jeff has published many automotive specific articles and was the contributing editor

in his bi-monthly Dealer Magazine article.
