DealerRater.com CEO Gary Tucker is leaving his post to run Zubie, a company that makes aftermarket devices that connect vehicles to the Internet.
Zubie said in a press release Wednesday that effective immediately, Tucker would replace former CEO Tim Kelly, who stepped down in June after the company raised $6 million in new investments.
Tucker, 52, joined DealerRater, an online forum to review dealerships, in 2014 as the company’s first CEO. Before leading DealerRater, which was bought by Cars.com in August, he was an executive at J.D. Power and Associates for 12 years and vice president of marketing and product planning at America Isuzu Motors Inc. for three years.
Zubie, founded in 2012, is headquartered in Minneapolis with operations in Charleston, S.C. Its aftermarket devices provide GPS tracking, vehicle diagnostics, driver performance data and Wi-Fi for personal vehicles and business fleets.
