Work Truck Solutions recently added Bernie Brenner to its board of directors, saying his extensive experience in automotive and mature market disruption will provide the company with key strategic guidance.
The dealership optimization specialist looks for Brenner to aid in the expansion of its wide-ranging services in the work truck industry.
“Work Truck Solutions is completely dealer-centric and a true expert in how dealers can leverage the high profitability of commercial and local fleet,” Brenner said. “I am excited to be working with their team to deliver even more value to dealers who are searching to expand their local opportunity both with businesses and new ownership models.”
Brenner has spent most of his career building innovative companies in the automotive industry. He was the executive vice president of business development and chief strategy officer at TrueCar, a company he co-founded in 2005 and took public in 2014. He’s currently the CEO of Rollick Outdoor, another company he co-founded that provides a one-to-one relationship marketing platform for manufacturers and franchise dealers to connect and nurture consumers through the shopping process of large ticket items.
Prior to TrueCar, Brenner was vice president of business development for Carfax, where he secured and managed the company’s strategic partnerships with automobile manufacturers, dealer software systems and online marketing partners.
“Bernie has successfully delivered growth and navigated change in the automotive space,” said Kathryn Schifferle, Work Truck Solutions’ CEO. “Work Truck Solutions is the trusted commercial vehicle management partner for 900 dealers.
“Bernie’s insight, experience and relationships will help guide us in how we expand dealers’ local fleet and business-to-business opportunities in each unique local market.”
