“The extended car repair coverage industry has been mired in misleading and confusing options for too long, and has left too many consumers frustrated,” said Mark Hodes, CEO of ForeverCar.com. “Since joining ForeverCar, Kal, Brooke and Dan have made tremendous inroads into providing the market with the most advanced customer experience possible -- making it simple to get complete and accurate information, purchase coverage to suit every car owner, and remove the worry from expensive car repairs. We’ve also made significant progress in our financial management discipline and operational processes to manage growth and enhance margins.”
