Dealership Minds Summit 2013: Keith Kreps
Keith Kreps, Vice President of Agriculture, RDO Equipment Co. (2010 Dealership of the Year). The nation's second-largest equipment dealer group (62 stores in 9 states), RDO Equipment Co. learned during its publicly held years (1997-2003) that growth opportunities are stunted without a stellar training and development program.
Today, RDO Equipment Co. considers training a core strength. Its initiative includes multiple opportunities for all team members, and an impressive curriculum to bring along the next generation of management talent. Kreps, who joined the company in 1998 after working in the automotive industry, is responsible for all the firm's agricultural dealerships.
