Growing up, Scott Chesrown spent Saturdays roaming around his father’s dealership.
Today, the chief revenue officer for Vroom has a front-row seat to what he describes as the evolution of the auto industry.
“When we started the company, we never would have guessed that at this point in the company’s history, we would have achieved this level of success,” said Chesrown, who helped found Vroom three years ago. “Vroom is making it possible to buy, sell and finance cars all online, and I have a front-row seat to the evolution of the automotive industry.
“What I enjoy most about the business are the cars and the general excitement people feel when they get in their new cars,” he added.
In his current role, Chesrown is responsible for all activities that generate revenue for the company.
“I’m tasked daily with responsibilities including operations, sales, corporate development, marketing, pricing and revenue management,” he said. “I have overseen the company’s revenue growth activities since inception to $1 billion in annual revenue.”
When asked about someone he admires, Chesrown mentioned Virgin Group founder Richard Branson.
“He founded a very interesting company by building it around his core values,” Chesrown said. “He also built an incredible brand with Virgin America that took an industry with the same type of bad customer experience the automotive industry suffers from, and made it hip, cool and sexy to fly Virgin.”
