Abigail Kampmann was a successful lawyer in her native Texas, helping people prepare their estates and avoid excessive tax bills. But she wanted more of a challenge, she said, so she started working at her father's dealership group, The Performance Cos.
She's had plenty of challenges.
She joined a Porsche store during the Great Recession, when it posted its first loss ever.
Now Kampmann is CEO of Principle Auto, a group she founded with COO Mark Smith, and she's drawing on what she learned during that crisis to help her through the current one.
