VINCUE Thought Leaders

Chris Hoke

VINCUE Founder, CEO, CTO

TOPICS: Buying Plans, Private Party Acquisition, Appraisals & Pricing, Digital Advertising, Highest Authentic Value, Development, Data Modeling

Our fearless leader, Chris Hoke launched VINCUE with co-founders Brian Kellogg and Jeff Rice in 2015. Under his leadership, the company transformed from an idea of helping dealerships do more into the powerhouse it’s recognized as today.

With VINCUE’s platform in play, dealers have access to data like they’ve never seen before, helping them compete and win in even the toughest markets. An innovator at heart, Chris is always pushing the boundaries of what’s possible to create an even better toolkit for those who rely on the VINCUE system. He’s obsessed with finding new ways to help dealers maximize their potential, by curating the entire inventory lifecycle into a single system from point-of-acquisition to point-of-sale.

Chris also serves as the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technology Officer, which keep him at the forefront of innovation day-to-day, providing cutting-edge solutions for our customers.

Chris and his family call Kansas City home. He’s also fortunate to have one of his children working alongside him as a colleague at VINCUE. In his free time, Chris enjoys pushing the boundaries of the laws of physics with American-made muscle cars at the Kansas City Speedway.

Danny Zaslavsky

VINCUE Co-Founder, Managing Partner

TOPICS: Buying Plans, Private Party Acquisition, Appraisals & Pricing, Merchandising, Digital Advertising, Highest Authentic Value, Vehicle Lifecycle Management 

There’s really no one like Danny.

Danny Zaslavsky grew up in a dealership. Literally. He is the General Manager of his family’s independent dealership in Kansas City and his earliest memories are following his dad around the showroom and talking to customers. These earliest memories and lessons laid a foundation for the passion, commitment, and sense of service that still drive him today.

In 2019, Danny put his knowledge, passion, and his natural entrepreneurial spirit to the test by joining VINCUE as Co-Founder and Managing Partner. He now splits his time between the dealership and the company that’s innovating on his ideas and experience. That’s what makes VINCUE truly #ByDealersForDealers, and what makes Danny the perfect partner for your next Automotive 20 Group, Association Convention, or Automotive Trade Show.

At the end of the day, Danny’s passion for cars, the car business, and technology are what motivate him to continuously do more for dealers. He’s committed to helping dealers dream bigger, and believes that in providing high-resolution data in real time, dealers can exponentially generate greater revenues and significantly improve turns.

A Kansas City native, Danny and his husband love spending time with their twin boys exploring all the heartland has to offer.

“It’s the difference between obtaining information needed for decision-making from someone who owns, operates, and runs a used car store, versus buying it from someone who knows how to write code and build algorithms.”

If you are scared of change, don’t be! All your competitors are using the same tools you are. We find that VINCUE does everything we could do with our old program plus it’s easier to use.
