Morry Patoka

EVP & COO

Morry is a business builder. His experience working for, running or consulting with all kinds of companies from start-ups to multinationals, has given Morry a rare and comprehensive insight into what it takes to create the conditions for success. He digs into finance as much as marketing; dissects operations with as much energy as he guides strategy. Since his beginnings as a creative guy in the ad world, he has managed a tech company, a private equity firm, and a digital marketing company, among many other roles and contributions to private, public and government organizations. Today, as EVP & COO of Vicimus, Morry is focused on establishing the foundation of the business to grow globally with quality products that solve real problems throughout all tiers of the auto industry.

About Morry Patoka

Morry’s experience with automotive goes way, way back to his first job, writing, producing and directing television commercials. Not the big budget manufacturer ads. We’re talking local dealer commercials that represented the essence of the car business – cars, deals and personalities that are still bigger than life.

Later in his career, Morry worked with auto manufacturers on interactive one-to-one communication programs, when data-driven CRM strategies were being deployed through direct mail and the internet was just becoming, the internet. Even today, his data-driven strategies are leading the way to smarter consumer engagement and better ROI.

Some years later, Morry embraced the opportunity to go deep into automotive, working with Dashboard, an automotive digital agency, to evolve their services model into a SaaS company. From that point, he was fully back in the car business, working with vendors, consulting for dealer groups and happily, here at Vicimus.

Where do you see the future of the industry heading.

As consumer purchasing behaviour evolves, we’re working to enable the right people within the industry to more effectively work with consumers throughout their journey. We build for the global marketplace, and deliver locally to create meaningful connections between the people who make, sell, service and buy cars.

Your dealership’s brand is more than your logo. It’s more than your name, your tag line, your marketing program or the look of your advertising. It’s also more than your OEM’s brand and nameplates you carry.
