Mercedes-Benz of Northern Arizona, AZ


Todd Blue has a long tenure of success in the luxury automotive space, and this acquisition marks LAPIS’ first Mercedes-Benz franchise acquisition. For Envision Motors, which has quickly expanded via acquisition and enjoys a Top 100 placement within Automotive News’ dealer rankings, this marks its first divestiture, and aligns Envision’s operating structure to increase its focus on its core California-based platforms.

My working relationship with Anthony goes back to one of my earliest acquisitions, more than a decade ago. From that time to now, Anthony has been attentive, thoughtful, and a trusted automotive advisor. Earlier this year, when I began to build anew team to assist me in re-entering the business, Anthony worked hard to learn the specifics which motivate me. He knows what moves me forward on a deal. When considering acquisitions for our new portfolio, Anthony listened closely: Luxury, Access, Performance, Innovation and Service are paramount for everything we do for the brands we represent as well as the customers and communities we serve. Anthony knows how to connect a sell-side opportunity to targets desired by a buyer. The value Anthony delivered to LAPIS most recently, among other reasons, occurred because of his long standing managerial experience within the wholesale and retail sides of the luxury automotive space. Anthony understands the passion I have for the luxury segment. He has consistently presented opportunities to my team which match the direction we will take this new company in the luxury retail sector.

I have worked with Anthony in various capacities for five years, and have found his professionalism and integrity top tier. In advising Envision Motors on its first franchise divestiture, Anthony and the DCG team complemented efforts to align our portfolio with our long-term strategic vision. I would welcome the opportunity to work with him on future projects that optimize our portfolio.
