Joe Chura, Co-founder & Chief Executive Officer, Dealer Inspire

With a passion for computer programming and moving metal, Joe co-founded Dealer Inspire in 2013 to build new solutions to help dealers win. In a few years, Dealer Inspire has grown to 600 employees serving over 3,000 clients and 24 OEM brands with game-changing innovation as part of the CARS family of companies.

Joe began his career on the Ford assembly line at age 20, reading his college textbooks seconds at a time in between building cars. Over the next decade Joe gained experience at many different levels in the automotive industry — including Ford Marketing and Sales, dealership General Manager, and BDC Manager.
