Konect Ai wants to be a leader in automotive artificial intelligence, which is why the company entrusts its leadership to an executive whose professional career includes stints at Cox Automotive, eCarList and Dealer.com
Konect Ai named Jerry Salerno president on Friday as the company seeks to further expand into the North American auto industry.
According to a press release, Konect Ai has increased its workforce to meet demand for its user-friendly artificial intelligence for lead management and data re-engagement.
Most recently, Salerno was the Director of Corporate Dealer Partnerships for Cox Automotive.
Prior to joining Cox Automotive, Salerno was instrumental in the start-up of eCarList, which was acquired by Dealertrack. He then worked at Dealer.com.
“I have been fortunate to work with some of the most innovative dealers and technologies during my career. I truly believe Konect Ai is the next big innovation in the automotive industry, ”Salerno said in the press release.
Konect Ai said Salerno will lead a team of coders, graphic designers, business advisors, data collectors and content creators.
Konect Ai seeks to continue the success of its customers such as the Henson brand dealerships, located in Madisonville, Texas, which have been using the company’s products for seven months.
“Using the system has been great for us. Their tool is easy to use so you know what to focus on and what not to focus on. The follow-up and engagement has been excellent, ”said Eric Barbosa, Managing Partner of Henson Brand Dealerships.
“We personally call the team, and the support and interaction has been amazing. They’ve changed our game when it comes to tracking; our following has increased by about 30% since we got this tool, and I think that it has to do with their AI. As soon as we know the customer is engaged, we call them, “Barbosa continued in the press release.
