Dealer.com
Dealer.com, built by four Clarkson graduates
and their partner, recently merged with
Dealertrack Technologies in a transaction
valued at more than $1 billion.
Dealer.com first took shape in 1998, when — as
Mike Lane ’97 put it — “I needed a different car.”
In the intervening 15 years, Lane and his friends
Rick Gibbs ’97, Ryan Dunn ’97 and Jamie LaScolea
’98 worked with Vermont native and fellow
entrepreneur Mark Bonfigli to build more than a
company — they created a culture of innovation
that revolutionized how people shop for cars.
