During his time at AutoTrader, Wade helped double the size of the business by expanding into multiple locations and launching numerous new products. Wade is a graduate of Texas A&M, and will serve as the Chief Financial Officer working out of the Company’s new headquarters located in Plano, TX. “The opportunity to return to the automotive industry with a company like CDS, which is committed to growing the business and being an industry leader, is something I wanted to be a part of” said Varner.
Rodenroth recently came to CDS from ABRA Auto Body & Glass, where he served on ABRA’s integration team and helped add over 100 repair centers to the company’s portfolio in less than two years. Rodenroth also helped build and facilitate a technical support hotline for all of ABRA’s 342 locations. Rodenroth brings 17 years of collision and mechanical experience to CDS, where he will take on the Director of Client Services role. “I am excited about the road ahead, what our service brings to this industry, and how we can help shops get cars back to where they belong” said Rodenroth.
Said Doug Kelly, CEO of CDS “Wade’s experience in helping businesses achieve significant growth combined with Jake’s extensive mechanical and collision repair experience bring tremendous strength to the CDS management team.”
