Tony Wanderon, CEO of National Auto Care, and Danny and Cory Baze, the principals of Assurance Marketing Inc., announced that National Auto Care has acquired Assurance Marketing Inc. (AMI).
AMI is an independent automotive finance and insurance agency based in Oklahoma that has provided quality finance and insurance products, services and training to automobile dealers for 30 years.
Cory Baze will continue to manage the day-to-day operations of AMI’s Oklahoma City office, further solidifying NAC’s presence there, and he will bring his company’s decades-long relationships with dealerships nationwide that will enrich services offered by NAC.
“Cory Baze and the team at AMI have been such an integral part of National Auto Care’s business from the very beginning,” Courtney Wanderon, National Auto Care’s senior vice president, said. “They have consistently been one of our top-performing agencies, and I know that this acquisition will enable both of our businesses to reach new heights in the coming years.”
Tony Wanderon added, “We have long considered Cory and his team a part of the extended NAC family, and I am excited to officially have them join us. Our companies share the same values, and we both pride ourselves on an unwavering commitment to our clients. NAC and AMI are a natural fit.”
AMI offers a full suite of F&I protection products to its dealer customers as well as elite sales training, innovative technology and professional administration. The experienced team at AMI is also the most recent recipient of NAC’s Agent of the Year award, taking home the prize in 2019.
“I have trusted the people at NAC to take care of our dealer clients and their customers for more than 25 years. They have always been an outstanding industry partner, and our team looks forward to the success we will enjoy as part of the NAC family,” says Cory Baze.
AMI further accelerates NAC’s growth strategy, which includes the acquisition of like-minded, high-growth agents. The award-winning F&I product provider has announced two prior acquisitions since July.
