Rick McLey is the founder of Interactive 360, Inc. His love of technology began while working as a Data Systems Specialist for the United States Navy. After leaving the military, he attended the University of Arizona to pursue his other passion, the human brain, and study in the area of Physiology. While going to school Rick worked as a Salesperson for an automotive dealership in order to help pay for his college education. This is where Rick came to love the automotive industry, and used his skills to move from selling vehicles to becoming an Executive Manager over multiple dealerships. Rick was an integral part of the dealerships’ success with an average monthly sales volume of 800 units. While working in the retail industry for over 20 years, Rick spent part of this time working for some of the largest dealer groups in the United States.
Even though he was having great success in the automotive industry, Rick still wanted to pursue his love of the “human brain” and began working for one of the largest training companies in the industry, specializing in BDC design and implementation. He predicted the change in how dealerships would advertise, buy and sell vehicles through the Internet. This is what led to the founding of Interactive 360, Inc. Rick holds an Advanced Master Certification in Interactive Marketing through the University of San Francisco. Under his guidance, Interactive 360, Inc. is staged to become the leading provider of digital marketing platforms and advertising services to the North American automotive industry.
Rick is also very involved with his community as he works with the United Way and Habitat for Humanity, as well as serving as a member of the Amarillo South Rotary.
