San Francisco, CA – Veterans are being recruited to top executive positions, in almost every industry. That is nothing new.
However, the automotive industry consistently chooses to hire Veterans to lead their organization, especially in the field of Finance and Insurance or known as F&I Management.
F&I Managers from New York to Los Angeles, and from Seattle to Miami, and along the way, are earning anywhere from $100k and up to $400k or more – in 2022, much higher than even back in 2019. And many, are veterans.
American people are grateful for those individuals who have served in the military. This nation will always honor and value the veterans, whether the transitioning into the civilian life is being taken place after just leaving the active duty or if it has already taken place many years earlier. The skillset acquired seems to stay with the nation’s great veterans.
Regarding the potential of veterans in workplace, almost every industry would vouch that U.S. Veterans possess some unique values which can be brought to complement and enhance any business. And the difference, it is argued, is often immense.
These values can bring to the job, qualities that veterans have honed during their service, including leadership, technical expertise, organizational qualities, self-discipline, emotional strength, and the ability to adapt to change.
Veterans also have experience, in many cases, being deployed globally, having worked with people from other countries and different backgrounds, and can provide different perspectives about other cultures.
Companies with veterans as their executives are also rewarded with longevity. A recent study found that the average tenure of an executive with military experience is 7.2 years, versus 4.6 years for their non-military counterpart.
In the automotive industry, veterans are the shining stars.
Military service often develops leadership, project management and critical thinking skills that transform soldiers into logistical planners, great team members and agile thinkers. These are qualities and talents that add value to civilian jobs that can help organizations succeed.
Automotive industry is ever changing, constantly growing, bringing new challenges and demanding new ideas and strategies.
Implementing change within a rapidly growing environment is no easy task and needs a steady and strong hand to lead the force. With versatile communication skills, the ability to think strategically, and the intellectual strength to adapt to technology to meet business challenges, all combined, veterans are in a very unique position to offer skills across a wide range of management and leadership roles.
Veterans have proven to be exceptional at this and continue to reap the benefits within the automotive industry, having one of the highest proportions of executives, many of whom having been originally trained as an F&I Manager at the Automotive Dealership Institute, the leader in dealership training.
Today’s car buying customers demand knowledgeable professionals. Car purchasing consumers want someone who cares and understands consumer needs, and who has the expertise to help with making a good decision. Unless car buyers find an empathetic and highly trained professional in the F&I office, the dealership will miss the chance to serve consumer needs and expectations.
Veterans are often highly focused and well-disciplined to do the background research and have knowledge and expertise at hand to help customers.
Car buyers will gladly pay for genuine expertise. Choices, repair costs and protecting the investment in a car is far more complex today than even a few years ago.
F&I professionals must spend time weekly developing ways to effectively plan, organized, and improve every aspect of the process. This is why veterans are often ideally suited for the automotive industry.
