Black Book started the new year by promoting two of its executives to senior leadership roles.

Susan Moritz, most recently vice president of sales, has been named senior vice president of sales. Moritz has been with Black Book since 2020 and has worked in the auto industry for nearly 30 years.

Luck has been with Black Book since 2013, when he came aboard as senior product manager.

Luck was among Auto Remarketing’s “40 Under 40” honorees in 2019, while Moritz was among the “Women in Remarketing” honorees in 2016.

“Promotion from within remains a key tenant of Black Book’s success,” Black Book president Jared Kalfus said. “Susan and Kyle are both tremendous assets to not only our company, but to our customers as well.”

Kalfus said of Luck: “Kyle continues to exemplify the type of leadership we love to have at Black Book. His new role expands into managing not only the creation of, but the maintenance and care for our products and data, which will enable Black Book to continue to innovate and ensure our customers  remain on the cutting edge of the industry.”

Regarding Moritz, he said: “Susan has a strong background of leadership and a wealth of knowledge in almost all of the industry verticals Black Book serves. Since joining Black Book, she has built on the success we have had over the years, and instilled new processes around operational efficiency and customer interaction, which have helped us achieve even greater success.  Her deep understanding of the automotive industry, and this new position gives Black Book’s customers greater access to both.”
