fourth open letter to our dealers

a joint letter from IMDA Chairman Jim Reid and MotoNovo Finance Group CEO Mark Standish

the Independent Motor Dealers Association (IMDA) – created by independent dealers to represent and give a voice to UK independent motor dealers – an all new co-operative car sales aggregation service created by dealers, for dealers, powered by MotoNovo Finance, the IMDA view by Jim Reid

As an independent dealer, I understand the feelings of isolation that can be part and parcel of our daily routine.
Over the years, I’ve realised and benefited from the huge amount of experience across the dealer community. The
principle of ‘by dealers for dealers’ is at the core of the IMDA and it’s refreshing to see the same attitude at the heart

IMDA, the MotoNovo view by Mark Standish

The need for an independent dealer ‘voice’ is, in my view, undoubted. Historically, independent dealers have often
operated in isolation without the support available to franchised dealers. Certainly, businesses such as MotoNovo
have worked to support our dealers in areas such as F & I and financial compliance; however, there is a wider backdrop
where almost all independent dealers would find value in a trade body that is dedicated to their circumstances.
