Episode 34 - Exclusive Interview with Gregg Ciocca Jr.

(Psst…there’s promo codes for some upcoming auto dealer conferences at the bottom of this!)

Speechless. That was my response when I was asked by a co-worker about my trip to the Ciocca Auto Group based in Allentown, PA. Now I’ve had the privilege of being in and out of hundreds of dealerships throughout my career in automotive. I’ve seen all types of leadership. Good leaders, dysfunctional leaders, brilliant leaders, co-dependent leaders, temperamental leaders and on and on. RARELY have I found generational leadership which was so well executed, that the incoming generation truly garners the same respect as the former.

I expected a great interview with Gregg Jr. What I didn’t expect is the conversation I was able to have with his father and founder, Gregg Ciocca Sr. What started as a brief introduction turned into an almost 2 hour conversation about people, legacy and a real commitment to both of them. I understood immediately why the environment at Ciocca is magnetic.

I hope you enjoy this interview with the torchbearer of the Ciocca legacy. As usual, it is my hope that all the content we produce will cause us to be better as an industry and better as people.

DID YOU KNOW that the Dealers Compressed Podcast started as a creative visual production around the book “Like I See It”. We created it independently to give auto dealers an accessible way to engage the book and hopefully spread the timely message to their staff and others in the industry. We hope that YOU will use it in your dealership!

It’s engaging.

It’s FREE.

Its right HERE!
