Top executives from two of the largest independent tire dealerships in the United States - Jamie Ward, president and CEO of Tire Discounters, and Joe Doyle, chief operating officer of McCarthy Tire Service Co. Inc. - will share advice and best practices that you can immediately implement at your business.

Ward and Doyle - along with Dave Vogel, general manager of ASA Automotive Systems, and David Shoulders, managing director of Matrix Capital Markets Group Inc. - will discuss:

  • Using lessons learned from the COVID-19 crisis to help you plan ahead;

  • Identifying outside factors that you must address;

  • Finding efficiencies and other areas for improvement within your company;

  • How to know if your systems are current and ready for growth;

  • Increasing sales with retail and commercial tire customers;

  • Customer trends that are changing the tire industry, and;

  • Optimizing your liquidity and balance sheet for growth.

A 20-plus-year tire industry veteran, Ward oversees Tire Discounters’ day-to-day operations and has played an instrumental role in the company's growth, which has exceeded 135 locations throughout six states. (Chip Wood, Tire Discounters' founder, is MTD's 2020 Tire Dealer of the Year award winner.)

Doyle has more than 30 years of operational, financial management and acquisition experience and has helped oversee McCarthy Tire's rapid expansion. (The dealerships' president, John McCarthy Jr., was MTD's 2019 Tire Dealer of the Year.)

Shoulders is head of Matrix Capital Markets Group Inc.'s consumer and industrial investment banking group. He has many years of financial and merger and acquisition advisory experience, with specific expertise in the automotive aftermarket.

A 36-year tire industry veteran, Vogel has worked with hundreds of tire dealers throughout the country, implementing and enhancing their software systems and business operations.
