Andrew Parkin : Founder & CEO
Widely regarded among top echelon industry names as 'Best in Class' for retail automotive M&A, Andrew has been a central figure and key consultant to several top 100 dealer groups in both public and private cap venues since the mid 1990s structuring buy/sell transactions throughout the country while maintaining both U.S. based and international clientele. He brings a unique blend of deal making acumen to his clients as he fosters important relationships with manufacturers, industry trade associations and delivers results in the most detailed and tenuous settings. Taking little credit for his accomplishments which include skillful talents in deal structuring, strategy execution and mastering the diverse venues surrounding minority owned entrepreneurship opportunities, Andrew is a purest, single-tasked oriented operator. His best clients understand when he says, "I will call you back" to more accurately mean, " if I can get off the phone I will work on your deal!". Growing up in Brooklyn, NY and starting his corporate career with Bayer Pharmaceuticals, Andrew worked on Wall Street in various brokerage and M&A firms including State Street Securities. Once he realized there was a tremendous void in professional retail automotive M&A he founded Global Marketing Enterprises in the mid 1990's. Having successfully closed over 100 transactions, a graduate of New York Institute of Technology graduate with a BS in electrical engineering, Andrew makes his home in Atlanta, GA with his wife & four children.

Re: Reference on Andrew H. Parkin, Global Marketing Enterprises, Inc.
I am delighted to provide a personal recommendation for Andrew Parkin. Andrew has provided consulting help and assistance to me and others in three corporate situations where I have had first hand experience with him: First, at CarMax, later at Asbury Automotive and finally at Lithia Motors, Inc. Andrew was instrumental in locating dealerships and later selling several dealerships for CarMax, when that company made the strategic decision to exit the new car business. I was Director of Acquisitions at CarMax for seven years and worked with Andrew directly during that time. At Asbury, while I was President and CEO of Asbury's Southern California platform, Andrew helped me in initiating and closing the acquisition of three dealerships, including Nelson Honda and Dodge in El Monte. These were all very difficult transactions and Andrew added essential value, without which the deals would not have closed. At Lithia, where I am Director of Special Projects, Andrew continues to locate and negotiate attractive deals for Lithia's investment purposes. I have always found Andrew to be well-informed, thoughtful and very valuable to the deal making process. He initiates and closes business better than anyone else in the field, in my experience. His knowledge of franchises and dealer matters is unmatched and he develops superior personal rapport with dealers. Please contact me directly with any questions concerning Andrew Parkin.
The story is based on an interview with Andrew Parkin, CEO of Global Marketing Enterprises, which was hired to find buyers for the 13 Heard dealerships that closed abruptly Sept. 24. Parkin told Auto News that 10 of the 14 Heard dealerships have potential buyers. General Motors must approve the buyers, Auto News reported.After a sale agreement is reached, Bill Heard Enterprises must place it in an auction to ensure that the company has sold the dealership to the highest bidder. Parkin told Auto News that his company began working with Bill Heard Enterprises - once the nation's biggest Chevy dealer - to sell its dealerships six to seven weeks before the bankruptcy filing.
