Connie is Dealer, Principal and CEO of Tom Holzer Ford and assumed this leadership role after her husband Tom passed away. When Connie inherited the business, the economy was at its worst and she struggled with keeping or selling the business.  She worried about the 130 people employed at the dealership and what selling the business would do to them and their families.

Connie decided to not only keep the business, but also worked hard to build it up to the number 4 dealership in our region and the 10th in the world! We look forward to hearing the insights to her success about this tremendous turnaround at Trade Secrets.
