Chad Collier is the CEO and Founder of CarSaver, an automotive eCommerce platform that is changing the way the world buys and sells cars. And this week, Chad is also iHeartMedia's featured CEO You Should Know!
CarSaver’s eCommerce platform helps car companies, lenders and dealers digitize their business and sell cars 100% online.
But not only does CarSaver help their own customers buy, finance and insure all brands of new and used cars online -- they've also teamed up with Walmart to offer the platform to their 250 million customers and 1.5 million employees!
With a desire to enter into the auto business as a teen, Chad Collier started as a lot attendant and began selling cars to pay his way through college. Collier quickly ascended to sales management and general management positions.
In 2004, when Collier was 26 years old, he achieved his first major goal when he became the youngest non-succession Ford dealer in Ford Motor Company history. Chad was also a recipient of the Automotive News "Innovative Dealer of the Year" in 2008. Chad even acquired multiple dealerships in the central southern states. Collier bought and sold three dealerships, including to Autonation, all by the age of 32.
Chad has since then built and sold several auto tech companies including Imalooker, an AI assisted selling solution and CarFactor one of the first and most downloaded auto apps.
Chad is regarded as one of the thought leaders in auto.
He is an accomplished executive, entrepreneur, keynote speaker, TV commentator, panelist and investor. Some of his speaking appearances include the Thought Leadership Summit, Auto Leadership Roundtable, Digital Dealer, JD Power AutoRev, and the N.A.D.A. Conference. Collier has also served on numerous corporate boards, community service organizations and the Indiana Auto Dealers Association Board of Directors.
In his spare time, Chad is a pilot. He is married with two children.
