The company’s clients now range from large auto groups to Tier II ad associations and OEMs across North America.

A graduate of the University of Florida, Fitzpatrick has a long family history in the automotive industry, and is proud to lead an organization that provides its automotive clients with ROI-driven, technology-enabled services that are innovative, trackable and proven to achieve results.

Randy Sieger, who also graduated from the University of Florida, has been a critical member of the company since its inception. As Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President, Sieger manages sales and operations for the company, overseeing key areas like new product development and pricing. His focus is on ensuring the company’s profitability, productivity and efficiency as it continues to grow.
