Forty-seven U.S. auto dealers have been nominated by automotive trade associations for the 2018 Time Dealer of the Year Award. The list of nominees was released Monday by Time magazine and Ally Financial, the sponsor.
The award recognizes franchised new-vehicle dealers for exceptional performance in their dealerships and distinguished community service. Ally will contribute $1,000 to each of the 47 nominees' charity of choice.
The award is presented by Time in partnership with Ally Financial and in cooperation with the National Automobile Dealers Association. A panel of faculty members from the Tauber Institute for Global Operations at the University of Michigan selects four finalists and then the winner.
The 2018 winner will be announced March 23 at the NADA convention in Las Vegas.
