DealerSocket is announcing the promotion of Brad Kokesh to General Manager of Inventory+, the company’s inventory management software. Kokesh is a more than 20-year automotive industry veteran, most recently serving as a Vice President of Sales for DealerSocket.
During his tenure at DealerSocket, Kokesh has delivered white-glove customer service as he assists dealers in finding solutions to help them maximize profits across their dealership. Before joining DealerSocket, Kokesh spent more than 13 years at Cox Automotive’s DealerTrack, most recently as VP of Sales, managing product sales across the software lifecycle of a dealership. Kokesh has a deep understanding of the auto industry, having served in leadership roles for multiple dealership groups in the Midwest. His valuable perspective of working in dealerships for years enables Kokesh to understand what dealers need and expect from a software provider.
“Inventory management is overrun with terms like ‘the velocity of turning inventory’ at our competitors, instead of what we believe in, which is utilizing artificial intelligence and machine learning in our software to manage inventory smarter with better insights,” said Kokesh. “The impact of the competition’s philosophy has been that retail sales margins are down more than ever before, hurting the dealer’s bottom line. DealerSocket’s Inventory+ has stayed true to its founding strategy: source right, price right, turn correct inventory, and focus on ‘Profit Per Day.’ There is no need to change the strategy every year. DealerSocket’s newest releases at NADA will help dealers source, price, and turn with greater profit than ever before.”
