Management Team

Louis Robert Spaeth (Robert)

Robert is the CEO of TradeAutoX™ and seasoned executive sales manager for the #1 GMC dealer in the Southeast. Since 2003, Robert worked with dealer leadership to improve sales processes and create opportunities to grow sales. In his capacity as General Sales Manager, Robert has been the #1 sales manager in the automotive group for 6 years, responsible for leading a team of 58 employees.

Over the past 15 years, Robert has dedicated time to understand the processes and operations of running a successful dealership. He quickly identified inefficiencies with wholesale loss within his automotive group and explored solutions to improve the process. As a result, TradeAutoX™ was formed to change the status quo in this business and provide unique solutions that add benefits on both sides of the transaction.

In his free time, Robert is a family man, loves spending time with his kids, and is an avid long-distance runner.
