SALT LAKE CITY — Dealertrack announced the appointment of Cox Automotive and industry veteran Mandi Fang to vice president and general manager of Dealertrack DMS. Fang brings more than 15 years of executive leadership experience in the automotive retail industry to her new role, spanning product management, innovation, sales, and management of strategic accounts.

“At both Dealertrack DMS and Cox Automotive at large, our commitment to putting the dealer front and center drives every decision we make — starting with our leadership,” said Randy Kobat, senior vice president of Dealertrack DMS, vAuto, HomeNet Automotive, and Cox Automotive Rebates & Incentives. “I am confident Mandi’s substantial breadth of experience and skills will position her to take our DMS business to the next level with the dealership always in mind.”

Most recently, Fang spent five years in product management, leading the ongoing development, growth and innovation of Cox Automotive’s new and used vehicle inventory management, merchandising, and DMS solutions for dealers and OEMs. In 2016, she was recognized as one of Auto Remarketing’s Women in Remarketing and received the Spirit of Leadership Award from Women’s Automotive Association International.

“It’s an honor to take on this new leadership role at Dealertrack DMS, where we don’t just talk about being dealer-centric, we deliver,” said Fang. “Working closely with Randy and the rest of the leadership team, we will continue to partner with dealers to provide the open and transparent solutions they need to drive business and protect their bottom line.”
