“David Ruggles is one of the most respected automotive industry professionals in the world. For me to have the privilege of writing an endorsement for him is a humbling experience. David’s vast knowledge base, expertise and connections throughout the auto industry are legendary and I have personally seen the fruits of his wisdom. Of course I highly recommend David… He is the “Sensei” (teacher/leader) to many of us who read his articles and listen to his speaking engagements. For those that have the privilege of working with David, pay attention and learn! He is a wealth of deep insight and industry understanding that few others posses.” November 7, 2010
