Client profitability is a measure of Brian’s success.
While working with a 20 Group comprised of Harley-Davidson sales managers, Brian encountered a manager who was struggling with gross profit margins. Brian provided the manager with a formula to determine the sales price needed to produce a specific gross profit margin. Through this helpful tip, the manager’s gross profit margin climbed from below 10% to a respectable 18% in just a short while. Brian’s excellent grasp of the composite and how it is calculated affords him the knowledge and expertise necessary to explain what a dealership needs to do, and how to do it, to get ahead.
