The Auxilio Group is borne of a years-long conversation between DHG LLP and NCM Associates to form a separate but collaborative partnership that would leverage one another's strengths to directly address our clients' challenges through the creation of new, impactful products and services.
This joint venture between DHG and NCM, both leaders in the automotive industry, was created to bring an unparalleled level of service and solutions to clients across North America. With NCM’s knowledge in operational effectiveness and performance, and DHG's expansive range of experience in accounting and advisory services, the two groups have unique, complementary offerings with virtually no overlap which enables them to collaboratively leverage existing services and develop unique and innovative solutions.
The ultimate goal is to help clients maximize performance and ensure sustainability in their respective industry, including retail automotive, heavy-truck, heavy-equipment, power sports, motor sports, and recreational vehicles. Working together, DHG and NCM will create solutions to meet industry needs. In the short term, offerings may include simple collaboration and mergers of products. In the longer run, it is intended that the joint venture will create its own products and services to address dealers’ challenges, including dealership consolidation, industry disruption, data analytics, technology concerns and utilization, operational performance and profitability, succession, and other strategic areas.
The joint venture has been created, and the first initial product intended for existing DHG and NCM clients is in development now and the product distribution will begin in mid-March. The joint venture will begin operation approximately around the time of the 2018 NADA Convention (March 22).
The new entity is a standalone organization with its own employees, a separate stated vision, and an independent location. NCM and DHG's existing entities will continue as is, and all of their existing products and services will also remain proprietary to the respective firm.
The Auxilio Group will begin with a dedicated leader, which we are currently in the process of hiring. Staff will be added to accommodate future growth.
The location of The Auxilio Group is currently to be determined.
“Auxilio” is the Latin translation of the English verb “to help or to assist.” When we began brainstorming to develop a name, we looked closely at both NCM's and DHG's mission and values. We found that the desire to help our clients succeed is at the heart of what DHG and NCM do, day-in and day-out. Both organizations agree there is not a more appropriate name for a joint venture than one based on this singular, all-important goal.
