Last Day at AutoTrader.com

Filed under: General — pohodo @ 6:48 am

It’s been a long time since I’ve been around the pohodo space, but I thought this was news worthy.

After more than nine years of involvement with AutoTrader.com, this is my last day with the company. Anybody who knows me well knows that I’m not a big change kind of guy. heh. So this has taken some time to get used to the idea of leaving. I’ve met a lot of really great people at AutoTrader.com, and I’ll miss working with them on a daily basis. But at least I get to still attend all of the functions like the family picnic and Christmas party because I’ll be a spouse of the person who organizes those events :).

I’m moving over to a “sister” company within the Cox family — a place called Online Vehicle Exchange. It’s still an automotive company, but more dealer-facing with a more specifically targeted audience. It’s really about the best scenario that could have come up. I’ll be working for one of my favorite people in the industry, and somebody I can learn a tremendous amount from. I’ll also be working with a good friend and software engineer I worked with previously. I’ll be doing basically the same thing over there, but in a much smaller organization. I know enough people over there that’s it’s not as distressing as taking a job not knowing anybody.

So June is a big month for me! June 1st, my last day at AutoTrader.com. June 2nd, my bachelor party. June 4th, my new job start. June 22nd, getting married. July, hopefully a little slower pace. heh.

Anyway, just wanted to give a quick update 🙂
