Harcum has helped launch CarLove Recon Advantage, manages franchise sales and consistently networks through shows and conferences in the industry. Butch Truitt is an Area Developer with Colors On Parade in the Hudson Valley, NY area. He has been working for Colors On Parade for 16 years, and currently has seven employees working in his area.

This year’s conference will be the second year in a row Colors On Parade will be featured as a speaker. At the 2016 conference, Butch Truitt spoke on the topic of “Paintless Dent Repair and Light Body Work.” Colors On Parade’s presentation will incorporate traditional reconditioning such as paint, interior, glass wheel and dents, along with protection programs, Master Vendor Programs and service drive. The presentation will also cover the benefits of using Reconditioning programs, which includes: fixed pricing, no employee costs, increased preowned sales, decreased cycle times and a Recon expert running the program.
The conference also provides an opportunity to meet with many of the leading companies in the dealership Fixed Operations business. Attendees will have the chance to learn about the products, services, technologies and solutions that they can put to work in their dealerships. Some of the exhibitors in attendance along with Colors On Parade will be: AutoLoop, CDK Global, DealerPro Training, NADA, PDQ Manufacturing, TSD Rental Management Software and more.
