In October of 2017, Todd formed a strategic alliance with Pon Holdings of the Netherlands. With this transaction, Pon became the largest investor in the indiGO Auto Group. Todd currently sits on the Porsche Cars North America Board of Regents where he has represented both the Southern and Central regions. Todd previously served on the Aston Martin of the Americas Dealer Advisory Panel and the BMW Western Region Business Council. Some of Todd’s proudest achievements as CEO include indiGO being recognized by Automotive News as one of the Best Dealerships to Work for in 2015 and co-founding the indiGO Drive4Kids which has supported Texas Children’s Hospital, The Bianca Rae Foundation (in support of the Rae of Hope retreat) and The Barbara Sinatra Children’s Center.
