CarSaver, an automotive adaptive retail platform and marketplace, has added former AutoNation executive Addison Verklas as vice president of product, dealer solutions and system integrations.

Addison previously served as AutoNation’s director of product management, leading the auto retail giant’s strategic systems. CarSaver said with that experience, along with his “deep passion for product strategy,” Verklas is “poised to drive CarSaver’s continued success in the automotive industry’s digital transformation.”

Verklas said the chance to be part of a leader in that digital shift is what drew him to his new company.

“CarSaver’s innovative e-commerce approach not only streamlines the car-buying process for consumers, it also sets a new standard for the industry,” he said in a news release. “My enthusiasm for joining the team stems from a shared vision to enhance customer experiences, streamline dealer processes and elevate the industry through our unique solutions.

“I look forward to working alongside CarSaver to spearhead advancements in automotive retail, pushing the boundaries of what’s possible.”

CarSaver CEO Chad Collier said Verklas’ “proven track record in streamlining dealer processes through technology, along with his strategic approach to product development and innovation in automotive retail, will undoubtedly strengthen our leadership in the automotive marketplace.”
