Named among the Top 100 Women in Automotive Industry in 2015 by Automotive News, Copeland has dedicated her career to revolutionizing the automotive industry. Copeland served four years on the FCA National Dealer Council and was named one of the Five Most Powerful Women in Austin by the Austin Business Journal in 2012. Copeland and her team were the first FIAT retailer to break the NAFTA sales record by selling more than 100 new FIAT 500’s in one month. That impressive record earned Lisa and her team a visit by FCA Chairman Sergio Marchionne.

In 2016, Copeland sold her award-winning dealership to pursue her passion for leading a team that is committed to transforming businesses and promote corporate civility and winning cultures. She joined the leadership team at The Culture Works, as the Head of Automotive Retail Strategies.

With extensive knowledge of hiring, training and retaining diverse candidates, Copeland/FIAT of Austin earned recognition as #6 Best Workplace in North America by Automotive News in 2013 and 2015. In 2014, Northwood University named Copeland “Outstanding Business Leader 2014”.

In 2015, Copeland and FIAT of Austin earned FCA’s highest honor “The Walter P. Chrysler” Award for sales and service excellence. With passion and expertise in sales and marketing, her success story has been featured in prominent publications including the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, Marie Claire, and Automotive News.

Copeland is also the co-founder of Women Impacting the Nation, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to advancing leadership roles for women. In 2012, the Girl Scouts CTX named her “Women of Distinction,” and as the creator of BuyingCarsHerWay.com, she is dedicated to empowering women consumers.
