Peak Performance Teams Up with 3 Other Companies to Launch Affinitiv, the New Powerhouse in Automotive Customer Engagement Marketing

Affinitiv will bring greater innovation and the best value product offerings to the marketplace.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

September 8th, 2016 – Calabasas, CA − Peak Performance, the trusted authority in automotive customer engagement, is proud to announce its merger with three other automotive leaders to create a powerful new company: Affinitiv. Combining decades of automotive expertise and a client list beyond compare — Acura, Audi, BMW, Kia, Lexus, Mini, Porsche, and Volkswagen — to name a few.

The new company, Affinitiv, combines four industry leaders — Peak Performance, Dealer Product Services (DPS), OneCommand, and TimeHighway.com. Affinitiv will offer a unique combination of predictive analytics, integrated technology, and in-field experts helping OEMs and dealers make informed decisions to retain customers, build loyalty, and drive sales. In a world of piecemeal solutions, siloed communications, and a sea of vendors, Affinitiv will cut through the marketing technology quagmire to put dealers and OEMs in control of a unified comprehensive customer journey.

With the merger, more than 20 OEMs and over 5,500 dealers will enjoy the largest field sales and support team in the industry, and an unequaled end-to-end solution in connected multi-channel marketing. The product line will include integrated direct mail, email, digital, social, mobile, SMS, CRM, service appointment scheduling, and telematics solutions.

According to Stan Megerdichian, CEO & President at Peak Performance, “Creating connected customers for life requires a brand new approach in today’s digital and on-the-move culture. Combining the expertise of four solid companies will allow Affinitiv to build the strongest, most comprehensive customer retention solutions in the industry.”

Vaquero Capital served as financial advisor to Peak Performance with respect to this transaction.
