Caron has been in the business since 1996. She started her career in sales in Tyler, Texas and moved to Austin in 1999 where she began working at Classic Toyota. She sold used cars for a year and was promoted to Finance in 2000. She learned both new and used finance and excelled at getting the tougher deals done. Her success led to her being promoted to Sales Management where she really found her calling. In May of 2007 Classic Toyota was sold to the Penske Automotive Group. They saw first-hand her talent and selected her to attend NADA where she graduated in 2009. She was promoted to General Manager in 2010 and her store consistently ranked as one of the top profit producing stores in the country. The store was always above benchmarks in CSI and Sales & Service Efficiency each year.
In 2017 Caron became a partner of P4 Automotive which purchased Nissan of Lafayette on February 1, 2018 and Ford of Columbus on December 28, 2018. Her leadership at Nissan of Lafayette had the same results. The store was profitable the first full month in business and every month since. The store achieved a 90% increase in new vehicle sales above the prior year and performed at 125% of Nissan’s expected sales level. Market share was taken from Toyota, Honda, Hyundai, Kia and Subaru during the store’s first year of operations. The store’s unique sales process has resulted in top tier CSI performance with scores above the Region, Market, Area and National benchmarks.
