Kim Clouse's Interests & Activities
Kim Clouse's interests are creating better car dealer solutions, being in the wind on my H.D., writing and arranging music for production, dealer websites, DMS, CRM, customer satisfaction, improving car dealer ratings, reviews, and reputation maintenance. I enjoy helping car dealers raise the bar because they are all different. Each dealer is a unique learning experience and that is always awesome. My family, friends and Church get the most votes though.
