Acquisitions Specialist - Ordering
Holman Enterprises

Mount Laurel, New Jersey

Holman is a family-owned, global automotive services organization anchored by our deeply rooted core values and principles that have enabled us to continue Driving What's Right throughout the last century. Our teams deliver the Holman Experience by treating our customers and each other as we would like to be treated, and creating positive, rewarding relationships all around.

The automotive markets Holman serves include fleet management and leasing; vehicle fabrication and upfitting; component manufacturing and productivity solutions; powertrain distribution and logistics services; commercial and personal insurance and risk management; and retail automotive sales as one of the largest privately owned dealership groups in the United States.

Principal Purpose of Position:

  • Place factory and direct orders with OEMs and dealers accurately and timely
Procure stock vehicles out of dealer inventory accurately and timely.

Education and/or Training:
  • Undergraduate degree in business, supply chain, or other relevant area highly preferred

Relevant Work Experience:
  • Experience in the automotive area (e.g., dealerships, maintenance, etc.) highly preferred
  • Experience entering data and working with customers also highly preferred.

Planning/Organizing/Managerial Knowledge:
  • Incumbent must be detail-oriented, and have basic organization skills to manage paperwork and follow established processes, while working in a fast-paced, team environment
  • Efficiently and accurately order vehicles through Evos and OEM ordering systems
  • Issue accurate upfit purchase orders including routing instructions and revisions
  • Perform effective and timely searches for out-of-stock purchases
  • Obtain price quotes with proper incentives and vehicle specs from dealers and accurately present vehicles for client approval
  • Confirm licensing arrangements and delivery to ensure vehicle can be delivered turn-key

Communicating & Influencing Skills:
  • Ability to communicate clearly verbally and written with Acquisitions team members, other internal business partners, and clients/customers.
  • Ability to influence business partners and external parties with feedback to improve processes, provide clear information and input, and drive a better experience for clients.

  • Example: Vehicle orders with upfit, but without routing instructions require investigation into which upfit location the vehicle should be sent to, and the method of transportation needed to be arranged from the upfitter to the dealer or end destination.
  • The problems encountered are dissimilar and typically have several solutions. The solutions may be derived from a general plan, or a flexible routine may be utilized to solve problems of this type.
  • Example: When clients want to take delivery from a dealer before all paperwork and payment is complete under the normal process, the Acquisition Specialist must work with the dealer to overcome obstacles. Sometimes this entails requesting a wire transfer of funds, or asking the dealer to deliver the vehicle on the PO with assurances that payment is coming. Dealers are sometimes unfamiliar doing business with Fleet Management Companies and this requires the acquisition specialist to overcome objections and concerns in arranging sales and deliveries.
  • The problems encountered are unique situations and there is an unlimited number of solutions, many of which are unknown. There are no procedures or routines to follow, but only broad policies to guide the problem-solving process.

  • Acquisition Specialists place vehicle orders with Manufacturers or Dealers on behalf of Holman clients. They issue Purchase Orders to upfit vendors as well. For out-of-stock purchase requests, they must perform a search for prospective vehicles and present them to clients for approval.
  • Clients expect purchase turnaround times within set parameters, so Acquisition Specialists play a key role in their overall satisfaction levels. For stock requests, they are adding notes during the search that can be read by clients so they add value to client satisfaction by setting the correct tone of urgency and client focus.
