Endorsements and Recommendations for James Carter, Vision Mobility's Principal Consultant
Jonathan Jacobs - Assistant General Manager at Kingscross Hyundai
James has over 20 years of experience on three continents. I have known him for a few years now over which time we have discussed the state of the automotive industry as a whole as well as our common passion for cars.
During our talks after he left Toyota, we agreed that it would be great to have him bring his product knowledge into our dealership to build on ongoing training for our staff in the ever expanding SUV market. He provided our staff with a great presentation on comparisons between our Hyundai products (mainly Santa Fe, with some information on Tucson) to the competition, including Toyota and Honda.
Our staff left the presentation with greater insight and areas to focus on with our customer base. He briefly touched on leasing, a great area of opportunity for our brand as a whole.
Overall, it was a great experience having him share his knowledge and research with our team. I would highly recommend James for his professionalism, humble attitude and work ethic.
Matthew McKenzie - Area Sales Manager (ASM) at Toyota Canada Inc.
During my time at Toyota Canada Inc. (TCI) as a Subject Matter Expert, I had numerous opportunities to work with James in his role as an Area Sales Manager during national training tours.
James’ role was to open the classroom session providing attendees with expert analysis on industry sales, market conditions, best practises and trends delivered via an in-depth presentation that he himself would develop.
At each occasion, James demonstrated his acute knowledge of and passion for the automotive industry with his thoroughly researched presentations, excellent public speaking skills and engaging personality. I also appreciated James’ insistence on working collaboratively with me. He consistently made sure that we met in advance of a tour to ensure that his material was relevant to my own with the view of enhancing the student experience.
I also relied on James to assist me in engaging with the students throughout the day to answer any student questions, speak to any comments and determine if the desired learning outcomes were being achieved. He was an asset in these regards.
It is of no surprise to me that during our mutual time at TCI James and I became close acquaintances. I routinely sought his advice and counsel which always proved well thought out and insightful. I am delighted to endorse James here.
Greg Dyson - District Sales Manager at Toyota Canada Inc.
James and I have worked together in several departments and functions of Toyota spanning Product Planning, Sales & Inventory Planning and the field sales office. After each interaction with James, I came away with a new idea or way of looking at a problem or opportunity that we were working on. James is able to boil an issue down to it's elemental components and recommend a go forward strategy. For instance, James was able to identify the needs of our customers/dealers related to inventory planning and he was able to activate and draw others into a go-forward solution. Finally, James was able to succinctly and concisely summarize the strategy thereby gaining management support
It was a pleasure to know and work with James when he was here in Japan on assignment with Toyota. I am sure his experience with Toyota in Australia, Japan and now Canada will serve him well. I am happy to recommend him highly as someone who can look across many areas of corporate and management functions and find the best way to get things done.
