History

Our story starts with serving the needs of our industry.



Chris Stout founded Auto Solutions in August 2003 in response to a need that existed in the automotive market place. The need included the following::

  • Lack of innovation with products from the large dominate finance companies
  • Lack of weekly service
  • High turnover with staff from the large finance companies
  • Lack of local training seminars

In response to these needs, Auto Solutions, from the beginning, focused on the following:

  • Providing the latest and most innovative products to our dealer clients, including an electronic laptop finance menu selling package
  • Weekly service visits with our clients
  • Hiring skilled personnel with successful retail backgrounds
  • Local seminars coupled with onsite training

Auto Solutions is partnered with more than 70 dealerships across 14 states. Ten AutoSolutions Finance Specialists work with these partners to recruit, train, and develop the very best finance personnel in the industry. All AutoSolutions team members possess strong automotive backgrounds as Finance Directors, Sales Managers, and General Managers, so they understand what it takes to be successful in this competitive environment. AutoSolutions Finance Specialists have been with the company for an average of ten years.

The entire Auto Solutions team is excited about our future, and the success that lays ahead.
