Dave Marks has been hired as CEO and president of the Independent Tire Dealers Group LLC (ITDG), effective today, Aug. 1. His appointment by the group's board of directors comes on the notice of retirement by Michael Cox, who has been overseeing the group since 2003.

According to an ITDG press release, Marks "is an exceptional sales leader with over 35 years of experience in leading, guiding, and inspiring sales teams to deliver exceptional results in the automotive industry. He is a passionate, customer focused, and results driven individual with a history of increasing revenues in both the retail and wholesale sectors of the tire industry.

"His many strengths include new business development and expansion; pricing strategy design and implementation; sales leadership and team building; future product/platform planning; key account relationship management; vendor/partner relationships; sales strategies/tactics; (the ability to) assess and adjust inventory needs; business assessment and analysis; and sales promotion design and implementation."

Since joining the ITDG as CEO and president, Cox has grown the company from a small regional player to a nationally recognized dealer group with 620 locations in 46 states and sales of well over $200 million annually. "The board of directors wishes to thank Mr. Cox for his enormous contributions to the success of ITDG and congratulate him on the legacy he leaves in the industry."
