Network Focus: Profitability, Growth & Retention

The WRN has evolved in a number of ways since we began, but our business priorities remain constant. Our dedication to elevating the profitability, growth and retention for every dealer is unwavering. Putting customers at the center of everything we do is the goal that unites us as a team; it is the hallmark of our customer-driven culture.

The WRN leadership is focused on four priorities in 2016 that will:

  • Increase the number of women working in retail automotive through our Drive to Succeed Scholarship program
  • Create a more profitable Fixed Operations business—a heightened priority because of its significant impact to the bottom line
  • Increase profitability and operational effectiveness through our female-exclusive NADA 20 Groups
  • Create new business opportunities through an alliance with the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council and its world-class certification process

The WRN is here to help every woman at every GM dealership in the U.S., Canada, Europe and beyond. We want our women-owned dealerships to exceed the national average in terms of profitability. And we will continue to provide the resources for improving dealer operations at every level.
