The Women in Automotive organization recently announced Joe Webb as the newest member (and lone man!) on the Women in Automotive Board. The Women in Automotive organization empowers women within the industry across all dealership and vendor roles, which includes several educational events and marketing initiatives year-round.
Regarding the invitation to the board, Joe said, “I’m extremely proud to be chosen as the sole man on the Women in Automotive board. An amazing cause and events I’ve supported since the beginning. I’m honored to push for transformative change across the industry alongside so many impressive women. If your organization supports and promotes women in the automotive workplace, you need to invest in their success by sending them to these wonderful events.”
In addition to being the sole man on the women’s board for WIA, Joe will also serve on the Executive Council (also known as the “men’s board”) alongside Chip Perry, Brian Benstock, Jared Hamilton, and a few select others. Collectively, all will champion the important cause of empowering women in the automotive workforce.
Founder of Women in Automotive, Christy Roman, says “Joe has been both a good friend to me and a respected straight shooter in auto for many years.” before jokingly adding “I think his perspective and presence is much needed on the Women’s board, mainly because there is a lot of estrogen in our meetings otherwise.”
Women in Automotive board member, Subi Ghosh said, “Joe has been one of the greatest mentors and supporters of my career and so many other women I have come to know. He has been a champion, and true force for women in the Automotive industry for over a decade. Accepting the invitation to join the Women in Automotive Board only propels this mission forward. Thank you, Joe for all you have done for all areas of Automotive, but especially for supporting our movement from day zero.”
Joe is the President of DealerKnows, an Internet sales/BDC training and inbound marketing consulting firm, specializing in the automotive industry. He works to transform companies’ business communication both internally and with their customers through training, consulting, and their own accountability software. The Women in Automotive board, along with the Executive Council board, are driven by the opportunity to promote gender equality, better communication, and positive workplace culture throughout the automotive industry.
