Our Story

ASG was formed in 1998 by Barkley Spikes, with Mark Schultz joining shortly thereafter. Both former Sales and F&I trainers for franchise auto dealerships, Barkley and Mark remember the days when credit union members were loyal to a fault and refused to finance at the dealership.

Keenly aware of the financial pitfalls often associated with dealership financing, this member loyalty had a profound effect and compelled Barkley and Mark to join the good side of the auto lending industry by helping credit unions empower and protect their members in relation to purchasing and financing an automobile.

ASG has since built a training and consulting team comprised entirely of experienced credit union and automobile lending professionals.

Utilizing dealer training and income tracking concepts, ASG provides proven credit union centric success metrics, tools and training. This is designed to help credit unions advocate for their members and maximize their direct consumer loan and ancillary income potential.

Credit unions buy and sell money. ASG knows it is exponentially more profitable to pay your people to sell your money as opposed to paying the dealer to sell your money and concede ancillary product quality and income.

Are you tired of dealers converting your pre-approvals? Are you ready to develop more meaningful relationships with your members? Are you ready to stop relying on others for your growth and generate more income in the process?

We can get you there.
