Today, DealerOn, the leading website provider to car dealers, announces the hiring of Eric Bolster Jr. as their new Director of Sales. Most recently, Bolster worked as an Executive Sales Manager at DealerSocket after the acquisition of DealerFire.
Jeff Clark, DealerOn’s Chief Sales Officer, said, “With such rapid growth, it was clear that DealerOn needed someone with a strong history of demonstrated management and sales skills to help shape our sales team. Eric is clearly a good fit, and has already made a huge impact on the DealerOn Sales Organization. With Eric at the helm, DealerOn is ready to take our sales team to the next level.”
In his role as Executive Sales Manager, Bolster aided in new hire training and quickly became the team leader in DealerFire product training efforts, as well as competitive analysis, and sales strategy of the product line for most across the DealerSocket sales organization. He was responsible for 31.8% of new business revenue to DealerSocket per the DealerFire product line in just 6 months.
After years of customer service experience at a big box American retailer, Bolster got his start in automotive on the dealership floor. Working his way from a salesman to Internet Sales Manager in both high-line franchise and independent spaces, he transitioned to the vendor side in 2013, joining the DealerFire team as a Regional Sales Manager where he was responsible for 25% of all new business revenue. A graduate of the University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh, Bolster enjoys golf, good food, and being a father and husband.
Eric will be joining DealerOn at Digital Dealer 20 in Orlando. He’ll be present at Booth #401, so stop by to wish him well in this new endeavor. DealerOn also has multiple speakers lined up to present during the conference. Read more about our presenters here.
