It takes an exceptional person to run a successful tire dealership, and Modern Tire Dealer recognizes outstanding individuals who rise to the top with our annual Dealer of the Year award.

Now in its 22nd year, the MTD Dealer of the Year award recognizes an independent dealer whose marketing skills have kept the dealership strong through the rough times.

Do you know a dealer whose community involvement has made a big difference in people’s lives? Do you know of a dealer who has just realized a dream of starting his own business, or one who is successfully operating the family business?

If so, nominate them for MTD’s Tire Dealer of the Year award for 2014!

The size of the dealership does not matter. What does matter is the dealer’s:

1. Business success

2. Marketing skills

3. Management skills

4. Industry knowledge

5. Community involvement

Since 1993, Modern Tire Dealer’s Tire Dealer of the Year award has been the most prestigious honor in the industry.

Our 22st Tire Dealer of the Year will be featured in a cover article in our September 2014 issue and will receive a minimum of $1,000 from MTD to go to the winner’s favorite charity.

The nomination process is easy! Just click here and fill out a short form explaining why you feel the dealer should be considered. Modern Tire Dealer’s editors will take it from there. Any independent tire dealer, except our previous winners, is eligible for the competition.

The deadline to nominate someone for Modern Tire Dealer’s 2014 Tire Dealer of the Year award is Friday, May 23, 2014.
