Dave Cantin began his career climbing the ranks of the world’s most successful single-point Hyundai dealership, where he became a part-owner and eventually sold his ownership stake. He later negotiated the second-largest dealership sale in U.S. history, before founding his current venture, the Dave Cantin Group — an automotive holding company that specializes in mergers & acquisitions, as well as industry insights and dealership financial growth

“Almost like walking into an Apple store, you’re going to sit down and build your next car…exactly how you want it. That’s what I see coming right around the corner in the automotive industry.”

— Dave Cantin

Oh, and Dave is the founder and original host of the Dealer News Today Podcast.
