Are you interested in joining a team of professionals committed to empowering our customers' success?

Brent Sergot

President

Brent has been with our parent company, JM Family Enterprises, since 2001 and has been working with DataScan for nearly 10 years with the last four as president. In his tenure, DataScan has grown through acquisition, made significant investments in new technology platforms, and has strengthened its position as the industry leader.

Brent stumbled into the automotive industry after graduating from college and has spent his entire career in or around the automotive industry. From start-ups to well established companies, he has held leadership roles in operations, marketing, customer success, strategy, and business development, including M&A work.

Currently residing in Milton, GA, Brent received his bachelor’s in finance from University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN. His Minnesota roots instilled a love for water – both frozen and thawed – but in an effort to age gracefully, he has retired his skates and opts to spend time on the open water with his two children Sydney and Griffin.

J.D. Grogan

Vice President, Wholesale Intelligence

In his role, J.D. oversees the company’s Wholesale Intelligence platform, including technology development and services delivery, in an effort to continually enhance DataScan’s offerings.

J.D. joined DataScan with the acquisition of Launch Technologies and Field Logic, a provider of audit intelligence and services, which he co-founded. An entrepreneur at heart, J.D. previously co-founded AutoVIN, a leading provider of audit and inspection services in North America. Prior to launching and growing his own businesses, he served as director of operations for Aucnet USA, a satellite-based wholesale auction company.

J.D. received his bachelor’s degree in real estate development, public administration, and urban and regional planning from the University of Southern California. When he’s not upside down in a whitewater kayak looking at fish, J.D. also enjoys throwing a fly at them. If the water is frozen he spends time at home in Alpharetta, GA or on the slopes in Colorado with his wife, Trina, son, Hunter, and daughter, Canon.

David Lodigensky

Vice President, Audit Intelligence

Dave leads DataScan’s Audit Intelligence business/group/division. With more than two decades of industry experience, he joined the team as the co-founder of Launch Technologies and Field-Logic, which DataScan acquired in 2014.

Prior to forming Launch and Field-Logic, Dave co-founded AutoVIN, a leading provider of inventory audit and vehicle inspection services in North America. Dave has also held positions with Mobile Security Communications, Aucnet USA, and Volkswagen of America.

Dave received his bachelor’s degree in advertising and psychology from the University of Miami – Go Canes! He is blessed with an amazing wife, Kristi, and two great sons, Zach and Matt. In their spare time, Dave and Kristi enjoy taking their boys to see live music and traveling to places with tropical blue water.

Matt Powell

Vice President, Business Development and Marketing

A member of the DataScan team since 1996, Matt is essential to stewarding the company’s innovation. Prior to his current position, Matt led DataScan’s Technology Operations, Field Services, and Business Development functions of the company.

Before arriving at DataScan, Matt spent the first 10 years of his career in the real estate development industry in various accounting and IT management roles.

Matt resides in Roswell, GA with his wife Karen, and has two college-aged children. He earned his master’s degree in business administration from Rollins College. Matt has a passion for two-wheeled vehicles – both bicycles and motorcycles – and is still an avid supporter of his hometown hockey team, the Vancouver Canucks.

Brian Koprowski

Chief Financial Officer

Brian is the Chief Financial Officer of DataScan, a role he assumed after gaining experience in managing a variety of operational functions. He joined DataScan in 2004 and has been a key member of the executive leadership team and an active participant in the company’s sustainability and philanthropic initiatives.

Brian graduated from Ohio University with a bachelor’s degree in accounting and worked in public accounting for six years prior to moving to the private sector.

Brian lives in Canton, GA, with his wife Tracy and three sons. A commitment to teaching and working with youth has led Brian to dedicate his spare time to coaching baseball and football teams for over a decade. He is a lifelong fan of the Cleveland Browns, Indians, and Cavs – no matter how painful it might be.
