Mike Maroone, COO of AutoNation

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 23, 2014

CBT News Founder and CEO Jim Fitzpatrick interviewed Mike Maroone, president and chief operating officer of AutoNation, about several emerging trends in retail automotive, AutoNation’s investment in its customer care centers, and its plans to acquire more dealerships.

One area addressed was what Maroone called AutoNation’s “perpetual hunt” for the nation’s most talented people. He explained how recruiting employees today differs from years past, with staff requiring not only basic technology skills, but phone skills as well. The company has an eye toward hiring more millennials in an effort to connect with the Gen Y age group.

Part of the interview will air on CBT News’ daily newscast on Wednesday, July 23. To see the interview in its entirety, visit and click on the “View from the Top” page.
