Show Notes

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

In this episode, we feature Scotty Reiss and Elgie Bright as we discuss the 2019 Winter Women In Automotive Conference, encouraging the presence of women passionate about automotive, and what the car business could gain from promoting women into leadership positions.

“Look at the imbalance in the statistics - Women are responsible for the buying of 85% of automobiles - $500 billion per year. Yet we only hold 17% of the jobs. There’s a disconnect.” - Scotty Reiss, Founder of A Girls’ Guide to Cars.

Scotty Reiss is a writer, mom, and entrepreneur from Greenwich, Connecticut. It was this imbalance in the statistics that fueled Scotty’s passion for venturing into the car industry. A trained writer and content development expert, Scotty began her career as a journalist for publications like the New York Times, Town & Country, Entrepreneur, Good Housekeeping, Cosmopolitan, and Adweek. In 2013, she switched gears and co-founded A Girls’ Guide to Cars, a fun and informative website dedicated to helping girls and women navigate the automotive industry. She is a board member for the Women In Automotive Conference and was the first woman elected president to the International Motor Press Association.

“We are inspired by not only Scotty but the rest of the Women In Automotive mission. But here’s the rub on that - we educate who we get. We have to do a better job of telling our stories of the opportunities that are available in automotive. Still, the industry itself has to tell that story - Here is who influences sales, Here’s the way we have been taking care of that consumer journey, and Here’s how we’re going to do it going forward.” - Elgie Bright

Elgie Bright is the Automotive Marketing Chair at Northwood University, where he teaches classes such as Dealership Variable and Fixed Operations, Financial Analysis, and Industry Issues. Elgie served as a District Sales and Service Manager for General Motors for seventeen years before joining the faculty at Northwood. Elgie loves to enable students to pursue their passions for automotive in higher education and encourages them to explore their creativity throughout their time in his classes. Elgie lives in Flushing, Michigan, with his family, and holds an MBA from Northwood University.

Tune in to this episode and hear how these changemakers are making strides to encourage more women to become leaders in automobility spaces in a big way. Though men have long spearheaded the biggest names in automobility, the time has come for industry leaders to engage new perspectives as a means to trailblaze the cutting-edge business models for the mobility of people and goods for the future.

Colorado's Connected Car Economy (feat. Amy Ford, Colorado Dept of Transportation)

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] The future of transportation is when cars are connected to cars, cars are connected to infrastructure, traffic is negligible, and customers happily pay to keep this ecosystem going. This utopia can be broken down into smaller operations, and as such, we turn to the state of Colorado for some guidance on the economics of their connected car culture. As the Chief of Advanced Mobility for the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), my guest is responsible for accelerating innovation and technologies that maximize the experience of people, goods, and information moving on Colorado's transportation system. She directs program strategy for the Division of Mobility Operations, which exists to improve the safety and efficiency of Colorado's transportation system, and she directs strategy for the RoadX program, which seeks to partner with the private sector to deploy transformational transportation solutions.

20 Years of Telematics (feat. Jon Bucci)

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Toyota's first telematics program was initially developed in the late 90s in Japan. Built off the GAZOO infrastructure of Toyota's membership-based information service and membership system, it provided interactive information services like requesting a tow truck and weather forecasts. The interdisciplinary field of telematics encompasses telecommunications, vehicular technologies, road transportation, road safety, electrical engineering, and computer science. With the first telematics program launched in Japan, it was only a matter of time until its implementation here in the United States. Our guest is Jon Bucci. Jon was the divisional leader of Toyota's connected vehicle technology department from 2008 until 2013. Leading a team of 150 members, they launched Toyota's first telematics program, dubbed Entune for Toyota and Enform for Lexus, in the United States. Jon is well versed in telecommunications, business development, strategy articulation, project and program management, partner evaluations, and RFP management. Having logged 39 years in the automotive space, Jon was inducted into the Telematics Update Hall of Fame in 2016. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row] ...
