In 2013 Janis turned her vision into reality. The goal was to create a group of talented, no nonsense, tenacious Car Girls and bring unique perspective to Automotive dealers. We pride ourselves in providing dealers with real solutions to drive more sales.
Our mission is simple; work hard, over deliver and build revenue for our dealers.
Our team includes women who have held positions within dealerships including; reception, customer service, sales representative, sales manager, service advisor, business development manager, service manager and more.
