Auto Dealer Monthly, LLC has published both the Magazine (see cover image to right) and two online publications for more than 5 years:
Bobit Business Media has announced a new business name for the publisher:
Used Car University, LLC
First, I want to sincerely congratulate Greg Goebel for the successful sale of his magazine and online publications. I have always been a fan of Greg's writing and publications and have been an Auto Dealer Monthly reader for more than six years.
Secondly, I would like to wish Greg, Harlene and the new owners and company much success with their future publications and business model. Since it appears that Greg and Harlene will remain in staff for the near future, I am sure the publication and websites will continue with their long history of high quality information and industry specific news....
