Time sure does fly! In March of 1998 Bob and Rob Volatile moved to West Chester Pa. to start Northeast Dealer Services and the rest is history! Early on, the company took off and began doing business with many dealers in the mid Atlantic and northeast. We are proud to say that WE STILL do business with more than a few dealers from our early days. Now functioning as Strategic Diversified, Northeast Dealer Services expanded both corporately as well as in our client offerings. We have far to many important events to list in one blog post, but suffice it to say, it has been one hell of a ride! In more recent news, a few years ago Bob retired and Jeremiah Shelton became a partner. SD / NDS is poised to make the next 20 years far greater than the first, but our humble beginnings and the many clients, friends, partners, and associates that have helped along the way deserve a round of applause and our sincerest thanks. Here's to 20! CHEERS!!!!
Having been headquartered in West Chester Pa for 20 years this coming May, and having many of the good folks at Strategic Diversified having lived in the area most of their lives, we have our fair share of Eagles fans. This years Super Bowl winning team showed the world what we at SD believe: A great team that holds each other accountable with passion and discipline can do incredible things! Way to go Eagles! E-A-G-L-E-S EAGLES!!!
As we usher in the new year, Strategic Diversified takes the time to re-examine and modify our approach to all facets of what we do. This year we have decided to follow the following plan: Decide / Commit / Act / Succeed / Repeat! Any visitors to our offices will see posters and signs with this message everywhere you turn. We believe in constant improvement internally just as we do externally with our many clients. Our 2018 kick off meeting was not about what we were planning to do, rather how we would change what we do everyday to achieve a positive effect. The following link takes you to an inspirational video that everyone should watch. We will start EVERY internal meeting we have this year with this video: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=xp2qjshr-r4 2018!!!
Dec 9th, 2017 marked the first annual TriStar F&I Cash Bash! With almost $100,000 in bonuses and cash pulls, the night was one to remember. Strategic Diversified hosted the event which was impeccably coordinated from beginning to end by Jennifer Volatile (way to go Jen!!!). With a full casino, open bar, sit down dinner, DJ, and a wall full of prizes, prize checks and pictures, the four hours flew by! Special thanks to Kevin Sergent for funding the event and being a terrific dealer to work for! In addition, EasyCare sponsored the open bar and hotel rooms for guests. Strategic Diversified provided all of the prizes for the casino give away. Huntingdon bank kicked in Pittsburgh Penguin tickets to cap off the evening. If you ever need a great hotel in Indiana, Pa. please contact the Hilton Garden Inn, Indiana Pa. or a great DJ: Pittsburgh DJ company / DJ Dean / pittsburghdjco.com or a great Casino Event / Billy / elitecasinoevents.com Happy Holidays!
Its hard to believe that a new year is almost upon us. The next 8 weeks are filled with fun, family and the promise of a fresh start. We will be closing the year with our clients as we normally do: with projections for the new year. Remember: Projections are not simply a number we hope to achieve, projections are meant to examine the opportunities and challenges that exist currently. Only by implementing specific plans to address these issues will any meaningful, long term increases be achieved. Not a current client? Please feel free to reach out to us and we will be happy to set up a time to review your current situation and help you write a meaningful and attainable projection for 2018.
