“Women influence the majority of automotive purchase and service decisions, as well as customer satisfaction levels,” affirms Charlie Tomm, President & CEO of Coggin/Courtesy Automotive Group. “Ask Patty provides an important part of training and education necessary for our team members to offer the best possible sales and service experience for our entire customer base.”

"Ask Patty applauds the Coggin/Courtesy Automotive Group’s commitment to address the needs of the female consumer," stated Jody DeVere, President of AskPatty. “They are a prime example of excellent customer satisfaction and taking the step to become Female Friendly certified just exemplifies that commitment.”
