Adam Tobias

CO-FOUNDER | COO

Adam's first car was a 1993 Mitsubishi Eclipse, earned while working at his Dad's dealership. His proudest personal moment was becoming a dad. In fact, Adam credits his son for his expert level skills in Lego assemblage.

For Adam, the best part about his job is coming up with creative strategies for our dealers. His proudest professional moment was signing up our first customer.

Angela Mancuso

VP SALES

Angela’s first car was a 1995 Ford Mustang GT 5.0, not a surprising choice if you’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting her in person! Angela fires on all 8 cylinders every single day…in fact, if she could have any super power it would be the ability to function without sleep! There aren’t enough hours in the day for Angela to conquer all she wants to do!

Angela’s proudest accomplishment by far, is being a mom to her two kids, and her favorite part of her job is well…everything! Angela loves learning as much as she can about the automotive industry, and sharing all she has learned to help dealers dominate their market. Her bucket list trip would be to take her whole family to the homeland…Sicily.

jeff rice

Jeff Rice

CO-FOUNDER | WEB DEVELOPER

Jeff's first car was a Pontiac Fiero; the Italian word for "very proud", a name not intended to reflect the model's reputation for randomly bursting into flames. If Jeff could be gifted any super power, he'd choose the ability to fly. His proudest accomplishment is seeing his daughter grow into a kind and caring young adult.

Jeff would eat Mexican food every day if he could, and says the best thing about his job is working with a team of people who are excited about doing great work.

Favorite Quote: (From the Movie "Tommy Boy")
Tommy: Did you hear I finally graduated?
Richard Hayden: Yeah, and just a shade under a decade too, all right.
Tommy: You know a lot of people go to college for seven years.
Richard Hayden: I know, they're called doctors.

nicki hodges

Nicki Hodges

NATIONAL ACCOUNTS DIRECTOR

Nicki’s first car was an Olive Green 1969 Dodge Polara; a ride only she could make look cool. Her favorite part of her job is having the opportunity to build relationships with our dealers! Nicki says “watching the plan work” and dealerships grow never gets old. She is endlessly entertained working in the auto industry!

Anyone who has known Nicki for a minute knows the only thing she loves more than tacos are her two boys, who are her proudest accomplishments. She’d pick Catherine Zeta-Jones to play her in a movie about her life for their obvious similarities, and at the top of Nicki’s bucket list is a wine tour of Italy.

David Juiliano

WEB DEVELOPER

David’s first car was a 1983 Datsun 310 making him a standalone on our dev team…the only one whose first car wasn’t a Pontiac! This makes perfect sense though, if you get to know David, he is one of a kind. David’s proudest moment was his recent completion of a 70.3 mile triathlon, putting him well on his way to his bucket list goal to complete the IronMan 140.6.

David's favorite food is Peanut Butter Cap'n Crunch, so perhaps the folks at Quaker should consider sponsoring his next triathlon adventure! Working with his team to solve complex problems and learning new things are what David loves about his role on Team DealerCue. Look for David on Reddit, or running the streets of downtown KC.
