Kristin Dillard is the President and Dealer Principal of the Team Automotive Group with multiple locations across the state of North Carolina. “To those who know her, it wasn’t a surprise when Kristin Dillard, Dealer Principal at Team Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac in Salisbury, NC was selected by Automotive News as one of the ’40 Under 40 Up-and-Coming Retailers.’ She virtually grew up in her father’s dealership, starting as a teenager in the store and fell in love with auto retailing from the get-go. When it was time for college, she chose Northwood University, graduating with degrees in both automotive marketing and automotive management. But it wasn’t just the classroom and textbooks she mastered. Over time, she worked ‘hands on’ in every dealership department and learned the business in the trenches, from the ground up. Even today her favorite department remains F&I. Her marketing strategy is digital; her management philosophy is tolead with love.” –Dealer Magazine, October 2018 Kristin was appointed to Dealer Principal of the Salisbury location in 2017. She and her team quickly grew the single point location into a thriving four store automotive group that is in full blown acquisition mode. Kristin and her team operate the organization with an absolute dedication to their core values, and a strict adherence to managing by metrics through the structure of the EOS management system.
