 Gary Simmons
Founder and Chief Executive Officer
Management Consulting Services, Inc. (MCS)

Gary Simmons founded MCS in 1982 with the goal of providing management systems and training to drive profitable fixed-end operations for dealerships across the nation.  A disabled veteran who served in the United States Navy, Simmons graduated from California State University in Bakersfield with a Bachelor of Arts degree in sociology, and a minor in business.

 With years of experience in automotive dealerships serving as Customer Relations Manager, Service Manager, Service Director, and General Manager, Simmons knew first-hand that dealerships had a tremendous need for support services in the areas of management, operations, sales, and services.  With that knowledge, MCS was born.  A current client list of over 800 dealerships in 37 states bears testament to the success of the MCS approach: providing personal, on-site training coupled with virtual sales presentations and training programs to ensure that dealership fixed-operations best practices become permanent ways of doing business. 

 A sought-after industry speaker with numerous Dealer Twenty Groups presentations under his belt, Simmons is also a regular guest speaker for CPA and legal firms specializing in the automotive industry.  He has been married for 29 years and has three children.

 

Jeff McBride
National Production Manager
Management Consulting Services, Inc. (MCS)

With over 30 years in the automotive industry, McBride brings a wealth of industry knowledge to his position as National Production Manager for MCS.  He graduated from Santa Rosa Junior College with a degree in Graphics Engineering, but chose to make his career in the industry that had seen him through high school and college: the automotive industry. 

 A veteran of virtually every department in a dealership, McBride entered the industry as a ‘Lot Attendant.’  From there he quickly moved to the parts department, and eventually the positions of Parts Manager and Service Director.  After becoming partner of one dealership, he sold his stock to purchase another dealership which had fallen into bankruptcy.  Four years later McBride sold that now thriving dealership to a large public automotive group, and joined the MCS team. 

 As National Production Manager, McBride is integral in creating management systems and leading training programs that push dealership fixed-operations from merely adequate to highly profitable.  He has been married for 30 years and has two children.
