LotLinx has a new chief executive officer. Named to the role on Tuesday was Denise Chudy, an original founder of the company who has been with LotLinx since its inception.
This news comes a day after it was announced that former CEO Dean Evans has taken on the role of chief marketing officer with Hyundai Motor America.
As for Chudy, her background in the automotive digital space is extensive, and includes such positions as vice president of national sales at Cars.com and founder/leader of Google’s automotive division, just to name a couple roles.
“Denise is my true-cofounder of LotLinx — she and I came up with the model, and she has been an integral part of our success from the very beginning,” said Len Short, founder of LotLinx. “She has had an outstanding career leading the early rise of break-out players like Google and Tremor Video.
“Her experience in transforming disruptive technologies into market leaders has been outstanding, and her experience is unique. There are few people in the world who were in the frame of the picture when the digital media revolution was happening, and Denise is one of them,” Short continued. “LotLinx is growing at a faster rate than ever before; we’re outperforming each month, and no one is more qualified than Denise to help us usher in this new phase of tremendous growth.”
Chudy noted: “I’m very proud of the work we’ve done at LotLinx, in helping dealers accelerate sales with more direct connections to car shoppers. We are in the midst of a revolution where car shoppers expect to gather and evaluate all pertinent vehicle information anonymously via a digital device, and want to do that activity more and more on a dealer’s site.
“Len and I envisioned this platform in 2012, and with the amazing technical skills of our CTO, Rob Vucic, our dealer customer base has more than doubled within the past year. Needless to say, I could not be more excited to move into the position of CEO,” she continued.
