With decades of automotive experience between them, Lotlinx’s Founders Len Short, Robert Vucic, and Jason Knight understand the problems dealers face. With too many layers wedged between dealers and shoppers, they aim to give dealers more control. At the time of Lotlinx’s founding, the technology dealers needed to connect with customers and save themselves time and money didn’t exist. So, they set out to do something that hadn’t been done before—bring dealers directly to the right customers, unrestricted by channel. With that vision, Lotlinx was born.
Our mission is to empower dealers with data and technology to give them the best possible market advantage on every vehicle transaction.Len Short, Chairman & CEO
