NADA said Wednesday that Stanton has been named its senior vice president and chief operating officer.
“I am excited to be back at NADA and have the opportunity to enhance existing relationships and develop new ones to support franchised new-car and -truck dealerships and our industry,” Stanton said in a news release.
His responsibilities in the new position include strategic and operational issues, new business development, while also leading NADA’s information technology and economics and data analytics departments, plus its affinity programs.
