Good Processes + Good People = Good Business

What’s stopping you from reaching the next level?
  • Do you have multiple teams and verticals who don’t communicate with each other?
  • Trouble getting the entire organization moving in the same direction?
  • Is the ‘family’ part of business, adding a layer of complexity and emotion? Yeah, I’ve been there.

I scaled my business from a single-point new car store into one of the largest used car franchises in Central New York by developing good processes and good people.

After reaching a critical level of success, my auto group was acquired by one of the nation’s largest automotive retailers.

I’ve been helped by numerous people throughout my career, from family members to mentors to business partners.

Now, I want to help the automotive industry thrive.

My team and I guide auto dealers to the next level and help vendors and tech partners understand what auto dealers need.

Full Story
Todd Caputo consulting with clients
Trusted By
In my four decades of retail automotive experience as both a dealer and solution provider, I've come to know thousands of new and used car sales professionals.

Among all those with whom I've had the privilege to work, Todd Caputo stands out among the most elite performers. He has distinguished himself with unusual expertise and effectiveness in both sourcing and retailing used vehicles. Owning and operating a chain of independent used car sales and service outlets, he has demonstrated his expertise of sales volume, net profit and customer satisfaction.Todd also possesses a uniquely innate understanding of the macro used car market.

Perhaps, however, Todd's greatest attribute is his understanding and sensitivity of humanity. Todd works tirelessly to support meaningful causes that make a difference in the lives of so many. I'm truly blessed and honored for the privilege of Todd's friendship and professional association.

I’ve had the distinct pleasure of knowing Todd for over 10 years now. He was an early adopter of vAuto, and I got to know him when I oversaw that company’s acquisition for AutoTrader.com. Todd was (and is) recognized as one of the best used car operators in automotive. I appreciate everything that Todd does to give back to the industry, and I learn something every time I speak with him. We need more Todd Caputos in this world.

Todd is invaluable. I started managing our dealership in 1999 and have not come across many people who can assess a dealership’s performance as well as Todd. In less than 24 hours, he was able to determine what we do well, what we need to improve upon and give us a roadmap on how to make the necessary changes quickly and efficiently.
Todd is a bulldog and you want him fighting for you. He will raise your business to the next level and help you be the best that you can be.
