CARY, N.C. — Auto Remarketing and Used Car Week are pleased to announce the launch of the Used Car Awards (UCAs).
The UCAs will honor the dealers and executives making positive impacts and building great businesses within the used-car industry. The honorees and award recipients will be invited to attend a special Used Car Awards luncheon during Used Car Week, Nov. 13-17 in Palm Springs, Calif. This year’s UCA luncheon is sponsored by TradeRev.
Recognizing excellence has long been a key part of Used Car Week’s annual agenda, and with the launch of the UCAs, those awards and recognitions will be grouped together during the Used Car Awards Luncheon. Awards that have traditionally been a part of the event — like the CPO Dealer of the Year, SubPrime Auto Executive of the Year and Repo Executive of the Year — along with other awards, like the respective CPO awards from Vincentric and IntelliChoice, will all be part of the new UCA luncheon.
New awards will also be a part of this new combined effort on the part of Auto Remarketing, SubPrime Auto Finance News and other Cherokee Media Group brands. Among the new awards as part of the UCAs include:
- Franchise Dealer of the Year
- Independent Dealer of the Year
- And three tiers of Dealer Group(s) of the Year
“We’re excited about the launch of the UCAs,” said Bill Zadeits, president of Cherokee Media Group and chairman of Used Car Week. “We’ve had tremendous response to efforts such as Women in Remarketing, Auto Remarketing’s Under 40 and others, this launch was taking the next step to brand and solidify our company’s commitment to recognizing the industry’s best and brightest. Used Car Week is the ideal opportunity to meet and honor those in our industry who are at the top of their game.”
The Used Car Awards will be presented during a luncheon sponsored by TradeRev during the First Block of Used Car Week on Nov. 14. Additional industry recognition and awards such as the Auto Remarketing Under 40, Women in Remarketing, Lifetime Achievement and the National Remarketing Executive of the Year will still be presented during the NRC/NAAA (Second Block) portion of the week. All of the award winners and honorees during Used Car Week will be highlighted in a special December “Used Car Awards” edition of Auto Remarketing.
