After that I came inside to sell over the phone until I was blessed with my angel of a daughter. I stayed home to enjoy her for a while then came back as Production Manager. I have an amazing husband (David)!!! I love what I do and I love where I do it! IPD Rocks!! Life is good and I’m beyond blessed!!!

My name is Tim Leep and I am the Corporate Accounting Manager at IPD. At the beginning of my career I started working at a Regional Public Accounting Firm and upon earning certification I decided to pursue a career in a Corporate Accounting Environment in order to spend more time at home with my family. In my Corporate career I have had the opportunity to hold managerial roles in the Manufacturing, Mining/Energy, Agriculture, and Marketing sectors. I have worked for large publicly traded companies as well as smaller family owned businesses. My greatest accomplishment, however, is to have been married to my beautiful wife Tracie for 27 years and I am thankful for my two pretty and talented daughters; Ashtyn who is a junior at USF and Brelyn who is a High School Sophomore at Seffner Christian Academy. I was born and raised in West Virginia and my wife was raised in Southern Georgia. We decided to move to Florida in 2010 and we have yet to regret that decision. I am very thankful and excited to have been chosen to be a part of the IPD family and I am looking forward to making IPD even more successful in the future.

In my past life I was probably a librarian because if I am not working, you’re likely going to find me somewhere near the water, with my two rescue pups, and my nose buried in a book. For me, there’s not much a little storytelling and watching the sunset can’t fix. I am a passionate reader, writer and animal advocate. Some of my hobbies include fashion design, music, modern art, and photography.
I have been blessed with a wonderful family and treasure being able to call my mom and brother my best friends. I am lucky to have had so many life experiences that allowed me to meet many people from all over the world that I now call my closest friends. I believe a lot of what makes life beautiful is people and that’s why there’s usually not a stranger in a room that I haven’t met already.
I am originally from Georgia but grew up in Tampa and I love my city! I briefly moved to Jacksonville to attend the University of North Florida, where I graduated with honors in 2009, obtaining degrees in Marketing, English and Photography.

Hello, I am Evan Anaya. I work in the Business Development Center (BDC) at IPD as a Representative. I have been working for iPD since 2006. I have been here throughout the development, evolution and implementation of the BDC Department. The BDC is a fantastic support for our Sales Department.
It has been a rewarding and interesting experience.
We are at the point where we are able to meet and exceed all expectations ever needed in a BDC for automotive dealerships. We complete the package for Mailology.

Many people ask what it means to be a good customer service representative. That is not the question they should be asking. What they should be asking is “What does it mean to be a good person?” What my fellow colleagues and I do is not only assist people with their vehicle needs, but to give them a better understanding and peace of mind. All in all, is that not the endgame of what we are doing here?
I have a good amount of experience trying to find out what makes the mind of a customer tick. Not just in the retail industry, but also the automotive industry on the side of vehicle servicing/restorations and as a pest control technician spanning the last eight years or so. I would like to think I know how important it is to treat someone who is calling in or picking up a phone call well.
I am originally from the Republic of the Philippines and moved over to the United States at a young age. I’ve seized every opportunity I could to better myself both physically and mentally, from sports to intellectually challenging myself by seeking an MBA (which I am currently in my second semester of pursuing).
I am very easy to talk to and love a good laugh whenever and wherever I can find it, but am also compassionate to the needs of those around me. If I can help in any way, you know where to find me.
