SEASON 3 | EPISODE 6: “Let’s look at it from 10,000 ft.” | Ernie Boch Jr., CEO, Boch Enterprises | Dave Cantin, President, The Dave Cantin Group

“Let’s look at it from 10,000 ft.”  —  Ernie Boch Jr.

Ernie Boch is an automotive entrepreneur, global philanthropist, accomplished musician, and all-around fascinating guy.

He’s owned numerous dealerships throughout his career, including the world’s #1 Honda dealership. Today, he maintains a Ferrari store and a Maserati store, and he distributes Subaru vehicles to dealers throughout New England.

On the philanthropic side, Boch is currently helping to bring running water, a school, and a hospital to a village in Uganda. The Boch Family Foundation runs one of the nation’s largest nonprofit arts centers, as well as MusicDrivesUs.org, which supports music in schools across the country.

If that’s not enough for one episode, Dave Cantin, President of the Dave Cantin Group (and original host of the DNT Podcast), knew he had to join when he heard Ernie was going to be on the show.

The result is a fun, inspiring, and thoughtful conversation on how to be your best — in the car business and in life — along with some important advice for dealers navigating this unprecedented era in the automotive industry.
