    Jeremiah Shelton: EasyCare National MVP Over the weekend, Jeremiah Shelton received the “EasyCare – MVP” award   Jeremiah is celebrating his 20th year in the business and is only 39 years old. Jeremiah oversees the Development and Training for SD. Jeremiah is responsible for every rooftop and all of the content that we use for our dealers on a monthly basis. Jeremiah works with and through his regional managers in our ever-expanding client universe.   Starting as a 19-year-old F&I manager, Miah has been an area manager, regional manager, national trainer, Vice President, and partner. As a trainer, Miah has trained close to 1000 finance managers in a formal multi day / classroom setting and is responsible for millions of dollars in increased dealer net.   As a mentor and coach, Miah is not a person that is interested in impressing people. He is about changing lives for the better and is unique in how he ties “leadership / life” lessons into all he does with our clients. He is beloved by the dealership personnel he works with because he is so damn easy to like, but more importantly he is one of the most knowledgeable people in the dealer development industry with his incredibly effective manner of communicating.   Above all these things, Miah is GENUINE in a way that isn’t seen very often in any business. He is the “real thing” and if you have spent any time with him you would instantly recognize these enviable traits. He is a great father, a great husband, a great partner, and a great person.   The EasyCare MVP is the highest honor EasyCare bestows upon the men and women that work with dealerships.  The MVP is EasyCares choice for the person who is considered “the best” in the country.  There have only been a handful of people chosen for this award over the years, and now Jeremiah takes his rightful place among the “best of the best”.   EasyCare said: “Jeremiah Shelton embodies and exceeds our highest standards and we are proud to honor him as our 2019 MVP for his many years of loyalty and world class service to EasyCare dealers.”   In the immortal words of Highlander: “There can be only one!” and Jeremiah is THE ONE!   Way to go Miah, we are very proud of you!

    I came across this article about a man shopping for a car in LA. Social commentary aside, I found it very interesting to see how dealers and salespeople are viewed through the eyes of an actual shopping customer.   What do you think?
