Providing world-class M&A advisory services to dealership-based businesses requires an organization to go beyond the outdated underpinnings of traditional M&A services companies by looking deeper into the trends and topics that are creating opportunities for dealerships within the automotive industry and beyond.

DCG gathers, develops, and disseminates various forms of media that touch on the topics facing our clients today, tomorrow, and in the future.

We have developed a library of information in various forms that touch on the topics most important to the base automotive industry and dealership-based clients we serve.

Our Award-Winning Podcast Outlet - Dealer News Today

Dealer News Today was developed by the Dave Cantin Group, a leading M&A company, and was born out of arguably one of the most turbulent times in the automotive industry’s history.

COVID-19 caused a spiral of subsequent issues such as product shortages, labor decline, lockdowns, and others. It caused the need for dealership owners, principals, executives, and others across the automotive industry to receive peer-based information and idea sharing. That’s when the Dave Cantin Group heard the call and developed what is now a powerhouse automotive podcast platform in the automotive space.

Dealer News Today has interviewed owners and executives of the largest automotive dealerships, OEM executives, regional organization leaders, and other industry professionals to provide updated information, advice, and insights the industry needs most.

Over the years, Dealer News Today has grown to be the most popular podcast in the automotive industry, with hundreds of episodes and interviews with the largest names in the automotive industry. Listened to around the globe and on all seven continents, Dealer News Today provides information to industry professionals in thousands of cities worldwide.

Originally a partnership with Cox Automotive and the Dave Cantin Group, Dealer News Today is one of the automotive industry’s most popular podcast shows and is a syndicated show available on every major podcast platform in the world.
