Meet Mitchel Sykes:: RHD’s newest Sales Team member, recently graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Business Management from Madonna University.
Mitch started at RHD Tire in August as a driver, so many of you may already know Mitch. In October 2017 he began his career as an RHD TIRE Auto Dealer Account Manager.
He has spent 6 weeks and counting in training as an A.D.A.M. and is well-versed in tire inventory management, warranties, tire training, tire product knowledge, and tire marketing. His newly developed and improved skill set will make a positive impact when utilized and entrusted to Ford, GM, and Chrysler Dealerships… so RHD TIRE encourages you to welcome him into your stores and put his vast business knowledge and acumen to good use! As an RHD TIRE employee, Mitch is empowered to make decisions and take appropriate actions to help your Dealership succeed.
Here are specific ways in which Mitch can assist your Parts and Service Department’s::
Inventory Management: He will identify obsolete, discontinued, non-movers & slow-movers, and will suggest removing those tires from inventory via an RHD TIRE no-hassle return. He will also identify what tires have been selling for the past 6 months to a year and examine the frequency and timelines of those sales and then determine if those are tires you should be stocking. At the end of his inventory review, he will present his recommendations. He can then set-up regular inventory reviews on a monthly, bi-monthly, or quarterly basis to help ensure your tire inventory is intelligently managed at all times. Mitch, like all RHD TIRE Sales Representatives, takes full responsibility for managing your tire inventory!
Warranties: Mitch can assist with all Program Tire Brand warranties. From simply confirming if a condition is warrantable, to providing a customer service phone number to call and assisting with completing the claim form (both online or paper)… Mitch can help!
Tire Training: Mitch is teamed up with me (Jill) to provide tire training in any GM, FORD, and or Chrysler Service lanes! We will cover a wide array of tire-related topics customized for each and every writer, as we conduct tire training on an individual basis. This will not only ensure the writer we are working with is getting the most out of the training but we will get to know one another and learn how we can be of assistance to that writer moving forward when it comes to tire related questions.
Tire Product Knowledge: Mitch has taken the majority of the tests on GYRewardsPlus.com (Goodyear’s training website) and he has earned 9 certificates and counting on michelinlearninginstitute.net (Michelin’s training website). He is in the process of learning all of the other major tire brands models and will be traveling to several off-site training events in the first quarter of 2018. If any writers are in need of tire training via online courses Mitch has you covered! Just reach out to him.
Tire Marketing: Mitch not only has an innate business sense but he is creative as well and can help identify ways to market tires to your customers. He can also come up with forward-thinking ideas to help motivate tire sales… such as this month’s spiff!
