Meet the Troublemakers

Paul J Daly created the Automotive State of the Union in response to the chaos and fear of the COVID shutdown in early 2020 with the founding belief that “When Dealers Band Together, No Crisis Can Win.” Kyle Mountsier joined the vision in 2021, emphasizing the belief that a focused community can truly shift the culture and perception of the retail automotive industry.
