SEASON 2, EPISODE 1: Maintaining Dealer & Retailer Growth

WITH Todd Baldwin, GM of Coyne Powersports, & Chris Sackett, President of Fasthouse

EPISODE SUMMARY

In the first episode of Season 2 of Centerstand, host Robert Pandya speaks with Todd Baldwin, GM of Coyne Powersports, and Chris Sackett, President of Fasthouse, to discuss the challenges dealers and retailers faced amid-pandemic and how they are responding to continue industry growth.

“I don’t have a youth vehicle on my showroom floor. Once a unit comes in, we post it online. The rate that inventory turns is not gauged by 30-60 days [in this category], its gauged by 72 hours. It’s a good opportunity for the industry to offer a good selling experience. We do quite a bit of sales training here at the dealership to make sure there’s a good experience to nurture and retain youth enthusiasts.”

 

– Todd Baldwin, GM of Coyne Powersports, in response to current opportunities facing the dealership today.
