DALLAS (December 11, 2019) — NuVinAir Global, which offers patented vehicle-cleanliness solutions and revenue-generating platforms to automotive businesses, today announced Troy Blackwell as Chief Operating Officer. Joining the company last August as senior vice president of global operations, he will continue reporting to Kyle Bailey, Chief Executive Officer and founder. In Mr. Blackwell’s expanded executive role, he is responsible for providing leadership and vision for the company’s customer programs, national accounts, operational controls, and franchisee success.
“As COO, I look forward to playing a greater leadership role in managing our incredible team, as well as driving the company’s robust franchisee network that now spans more than 40 territories,” said Mr. Blackwell. “Since joining NuVinAir earlier this year, I’ve gotten a real grasp on the company’s untapped growth potential, and my new role will enable me to scale our partnerships faster and more effectively.”
With nearly two decades of automotive-leadership experience, Mr. Blackwell most recently hails from AutoNation, where he spearheaded a major brand extension for the largest automotive group in the nation. During his tenure, he helped launch a chain of stand-alone used-car dealerships called AutoNation USA, which streamlines the car-buying process with new technology and a no-haggle strategy. Prior to AutoNation, Mr. Blackwell worked for more than a decade at CarMax, the country’s largest used-car retailer and a Fortune 500 company, where he served as both regional sales development leader and general manager.
“After hiring Troy, we immediately began to see the value of his corporate-leadership background and vast network, which he has been harvesting over his 20-year career, and the benefit they provide to our growth strategy,” Mr. Bailey said. “Now as a member of our executive team, Troy will continue to provide his strong leadership and vision as we continue our aggressive growth track.”
