An industry pioneer, Kolbe’s thought leadership has changed the way both OEMs and dealers think about engaging with their customers. His work was instrumental in Mercedes Benz USA’s deployment of its Client Care Center model, implemented at every Mercedes Benz store in the US, covering both sales and service operations. With this model, he partnered with leading Mercedes-Benz dealers, including Fletcher Jones Motorcars (#1 Mercedes dealer in the US), which achieved record sales and service growth after adapting Meier’s early version of the Blueprint. He has also helped Toyota Motor Sales USA and American Honda Motor Co. deploy similar models with their dealers.

Kolbe has had a significant influence on the development of CRM and scheduling technology that is now used at more than 10,000 dealers throughout North America. His work with the founders of many of the industry’s leading CRM and scheduling software companies, has helped shape new design, automation and core customer service processes.

The largest dealers and groups have sought Kolbe’s expertise to design business development centers for both variable and fixed operations. His clients have included Southeast Toyota LLC, AutoNation, Hendrick Automotive Group, Keyes Automotive Group, Longo Toyota (the # 1 Toyota dealer in the world), and many other top 100 dealer groups and dealerships.

Prior to starting his automotive consulting companies, Meier worked with Peak Performance guru Tony Robbins, who he credits for having a major impact on his beliefs, business philosophy and strategies that are now embedded into the Blueprint. He’s an avid disciple of Jay Abraham and Chet Holmes, whose sales and marketing strategies have had a profound impact on his business acumen. Kolbe remains actively engaged as the CEO of Blueprint and is a sought-after speaker at automotive industry events.
