CHICAGO, Sept. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- DRIVIN, a premier service for automotive dealers that utilizes data to help sell, source, acquire and deliver quality used vehicles for its dealer partners, announced that COO, Justin Mahlik, has been recently named to AutoRemarketing's annual Remarketing & Used-Car Industry's 40 under 40 class for 2016. For the second year, AutoRemarketing has recognized 40 current and next-generation leaders of the automotive business who are under the age of 40, making big differences in the industry and at their companies.
"It's an honor to be in the company of such a fantastic group," said Justin Mahlik, COO of DRIVIN. "I'm excited and encouraged by the number of dynamic leaders in the automotive space today who are all working hard to innovate and move the industry forward."
As co-founder and Chief Operating Officer, Mahlik has been with DRIVIN since its launch in early 2015. He oversees the strategy, operations and financial departments, as well as both industry and strategic dealer partnerships. Prior to DRIVIN, Mahlik had spent the majority of his career in finance, working at a middle market investment bank and private investment firm. As part of those roles, he oversaw a number of investments in the automotive space and gained a keen appreciation for the size, complexity and opportunities available within automotive.
"At DRIVIN, we are addressing a really, tough problem in the used-car space, and we are doing it with analytics, technology, human capital and a motivation to partner with dealers and move the industry forward," said Mahlik. "I am proud of the world-class team we have built across our entire organization, as well as a cultural tenet that the 'Dealer Partner > Company > Self' to address the problem. Without these foundational elements, I believe DRIVIN would not have seen the success that we have in such a short amount of time."
AutoRemarketing will recognize all honorees of the 2016 Remarketing & Used-Car Industry's 40 under 40 class 2016 in a special ceremony at Used-Car Week in Las Vegas in November.
