Get life insurance for your legacy. DCG’s dealership succession plans give the peace of mind that your business, family, and legacy are protected for years to come.
Secure Your Legacy with an Automotive Dealership Business Plan from DCG
According to a recent study by NAADA, “While nearly 50% of the dealerships surveyed recognize that succession planning is important, they also admit they haven’t dealt with it yet. For those who have a plan in place, 79% are looking at internal transition.”
When you think about your future, how does it look? Maybe it’s a grand vision of a multi-dealership empire, or perhaps it’s handing off your family business to the next generation and entering retirement. Our dealership consultants can establish leadership training, employee development, and HR processes to make it happen. With DCG at the helm of your succession planning, that vision becomes reality because it becomes our priority.
What is Succession Planning?
Think about it as a stress test for your company, determining whether it’s ready for a leadership transition. If a member of your leadership suddenly left, you wouldn’t want your business thrown into directionless chaos. You would want detailed plans in place. But this process includes much more than worst-case scenario ownership changes. There are a lot of moving parts. But here’s the good news: DCG offers comprehensive auto industry consulting services to develop future leaders, train managers, motivate employees, optimize marketing, and much more. An automotive dealership business plan from DCG doesn’t just prepare your company for a single moment of change, but for long-term growth and operational excellence.
Why Is It Important?
Two-thirds of auto dealer principals don’t have a succession plan in place. In events that force sudden ownership or leadership changes, these dealers would need to reorganize on the fly, likely without success. But not you. By succession planning with DCG’s consultants, you’re not only protecting against unforeseen events, but you’re also empowering the operational excellence necessary to help your dealerships prosper. Using surveys to gain valuable insights, we will collaborate to foster your workplace culture, build your brand messaging, and increase sales. Working together, we will facilitate your company’s continuity, financial and tax consistency, employee development, and more, ensuring your legacy’s long-term health.
