Zabawa’s passion for technology has put him at the forefront of incorporating the latest advancements into his dealer operations. In addition, he worked with a team to design WebBuy, a fully integrated car-buying app that brings consumers a click away from dealers and lenders. The app allows customers to trade-in their vehicles, lease or buy new or pre-owned cars and find financing, all in one easy-to-use app.

“I’ve always been inspired by technology, which led me to this end-to-end car-buying app that is changing the way cars are bought and sold in America,” Zabawa said. “We are rolling out WebBuy to dealers across the country.”
