In addition, we will have multiple opportunities to leverage our marketing efforts across the platform. Our CFO, Steve Berrard, and I have deep experience in the automotive sector and we are highly confident that the addition of Wholesale to the RumbleOn platform will provide significant opportunities to drive shareholder value. We look forward to providing more detail and updates on our progress in the near term,” commented Marshall Chesrown, Founder, Chairman and CEO of RumbleOn.
