Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association Chairman Nick Toomey joins Charlie Gilchrist, Industry Relations Chairman, NADA and Finbarr O'Neill, President, J.D. Power to kick-off the 2017 Automotive Forum.
lthough automobile retailing is becoming more complex and diversified, dealers still provide one of the most valuable resources this industry has to offer... and that's servicing the needs of the consumer! Something that's been the foundation of the business for more than a century."
Nick Toomey, GNYADA Chairman
"In a hyper-competitive market, U.S. auto sales in 2017 will be strong, but with little growth, inventory and incentives are a concern."
Thomas King, V.P. at J.D. Power
"The economic outlook is brighter than a year ago, with consumers, businesses and investors more upbeat. Consumer spending is up, strong job growth and the belief that regulatory changes and a friendlier tax environment will lead to solid, sustained growth."
