Executive Training

Fixed Up Pro will also help managers understand the key metrics for success.

Fixed operations should ultimately run 90 percent or greater absorption, meaning the gross profit from these departments should cover at least 90 percent of your dealership’s total expenses.

Our number one goal is to increase your fixed absorption rate to cover your total dealership expenses.

“I have known Brad Lillie for approximately 15 years and I can’t think of a better or more talented Fixed Operations Trainer / Executive Manager in the dealership. In my 9+ years of working directly with Brad, I have watched him increase CSI and profitability in both high volume metro and smaller volume rural dealerships both domestic and import. He understands the importance of tailor making and implementing proven processes to move the needle. He also knows how to make those processes stick, to help develop a new culture within the department. He teaches a customer first focused walk around process that allows each guest to have a great experience, while increasing dollars per RO and department profitability. He has effectively implemented extended hours to allow increase department capacity and showed us how to be forward thinking by implementing text and video follow up programs. He implemented an effective dispatching process to help better organize our shop for more productivity and utilization. If your dealership needs help implementing, training, or processes I would highly recommend Brad Lillie. There is no better in the business.”
