Innovating a one-world market for automotiveTM
We’re creating the industry market of tomorrow by leveraging the most advanced technologies available today. It’s our goal to bring a unique, practical and efficient user experience to a global industry of car business users.
From appraising, grading, bidding and buying, to selling, shipping and floor plan lending – dealers, vendors, manufacturers and ultimately consumers, converge within a simple, unified complete market to efficiently conduct business.
Term contracts, costly fees, multiple log-ins, and disparate applications finally go away. In its place: advanced technology with predictive analytics, resulting in a measurable increase of user efficiency and dealer profitability.
Our objective is tall – migrate an industry of habit into a culture of change. DMX is innovating that change with passion, ingenuity and world-class talent.

It takes a special person to track the automotive industry. Up at 5 am training for a zombie apocalypse at her local CrossFit box, she’s staying fit to wrestle zombies, as outrunning them won’t happen. When your day is not coming up roses, Fitch can be counted on to ruin it further with donuts.

Jim jumped in his Dad’s ’64 fire-engine red GTO and headed out for work. After teaching day care and coaching women’s softball, Jim jumped into technology and is an enthusiastic software engineer and investor.
Justin joins DMX from half-way across the world where he defeated the Shadow Warriors, a savage street gang led by the ominous Shadow Dragon. He is now laying low in Florida: learning how to use email and exercising patience with 3,000 piece puzzles.
He’s our engineering machine beast tamer. By the time Lance has addressed it, this lion heels, sits and rolls over. In his spare time, he runs circles around marathons until his Garmin’s battery dies. Because there is always a spare 9 hours when running is in the cards.
Our resident man-at-arms on the frontline of architecting our business ecosystem, Jim’s our internal voice of dealership needs and makes it happen – if that voice sounded like a Russian movie trailer. He can rip a phone book in half, with one hand. Bingo Bango.
Events barely scratches the surface for Holly. She’s our Go-To Goddess. While she’d love to drive a Koenigsegg to work, Puerto Rican potholes prevent this reality. And while consuming an entire cheesecake means a 38-mile Saturday morning run, she’ll still grab a fork, unfazed.
Born in a file room at the IRS, Francy was found by accountants and raised as one of their own. He speaks fluent numeric and loves a tasty pizza pie. We all love Francy since he is the one who runs payroll. Enough said.

Jacek keeps a laptop by his bed in case brilliance strikes in the middle of the night: He doesn’t even have to wake up. In his spare time, he writes scores for local musicals. He loves hopping into his car to sing as loud as he wants, with a voice only his windshield can hear: He only wishes it had more leg room.
Jake brings the sunshine. Being a Cancer, his colors are white and orange, which is why he wears grey. While he received a very promising self-regeneration injection from a scientist found on Craigslist, he’s regretting his hasty decision to cut off his pinky to see if it worked.
Mikhail is officially the best bagpipes player in the company. He likes Asiatic countries and practices kung-fu. He lived in Italy for 6 years, so you can always talk to him about pizza. In his free time, he teaches his 3 children how to write code.
Jonathan has no pets. He was going to adopt a dog, but it was born in July and their astrological signs didn’t match. He’s mastering telekinesis, yet falling short of moving objects, walks to the fridge for a beer. He hopes to mate a DeLorean and Tesla, creating a Future to the Future car.
