For some people, the automotive industry can have a bad reputation. A history of unethical sales people, unattainable financing, low product quality, and high fuel-consumption has led some people to see the industry as a necessary evil; good for transportation, but not great for the community or the world.

A Story of Perseverance

Mark Hergert’s story, however, isn’t one of unhindered success and prosperity. Like almost all Americans, Mark started from the ground up. He began his automotive career as a self-employed salesman at the age of 18. Working for dealerships in Oregon, Hawaii, and Michigan, Mark eventually moved out of sales and became an entrepreneur, founding his first company on the basis of the “No Sale No Fee” program, which allowed dealers to work with him at no risk.

Even the financial collapse of 2008 couldn’t keep him down for long, as Mark sold his first company but eventually came back with Auto Credit Financial, which reinvented that “No Sale No Fee” system and allowed Mark to continue his community outreach and philanthropic work.
