– In his new post as president of automotive dealership software and services company Dominion Dealer Solutions’ Dealer Specialties division, Shane Marcum will oversee the software and services lines for the company.
Marcum will report to Dominion Dealer Solutions president Dan Sykes in his new role leading the Dealer Specialties division, which is a family of brands including VinMotion inventory management software, CARScore vehicle condition reports, LiveLot video software, and DealerSpin360.
Developing and driving Dealer Specialties’ overall strategy, using the company’s existing relationships, and identifying new opportunities to support Dealer Specialties’ growth are among his responsibilities in the new post.
Dealer Specialties is headquartered in Monroe, Ohio, serving nearly 4,000 clients including multi-rooftop automotive dealers with national footprints and single local-level rooftop dealers throughout the continental United States.
In addition, Dealer Specialties provides services for automotive software and full-service merchandising needs such as data collection, photography, window labels and inventory management and merchandising products.
A Kentucky native, Marcum is a second-generation automotive operator. He has a 25-year auto industry background, and Dominion says he possesses a strong understanding of the industry’s product lines and the automotive community.
After joining Dominion Dealer Solutions in 2010 as national sales manager for Cross-Sell LLC, the company promoted him to general manager in 2012.
He was promoted again in 2017, this time to vice president of inventory services and solutions for Dominion. In that post, he was responsible for Cross-Sell, Dealer Specialties and SelectQu.
Marcum is a former Ford Motor Company franchisee. He also served as an automotive industry consultant, managing domestic and import automotive organizations at the executive level.
“We are fortunate to have such a strong natural leader in Shane,” Sykes said in a news release.
He continued, “Combined with his wealth of automotive industry knowledge, he is the ideal leader to capitalize on the growth prospects for the new software products being rolled out at Dealer Specialties.”
“I’m excited for the opportunity to lead the Dealer Specialties organization and look forward to engaging with our customers and employees who serve our great industry,” Marcum said.
