Jerry White named Texas Tire Dealer of the Year
Jerry White, owner of White Tire Supply in Beaumont, Texas, was named the Texas Tire Dealers Association's (TTDA) Tire Dealer of the Year for his leadership, innovation and service to the tire industry and for enhancing the overall image of Texas tire dealers.
White was presented the award last week at the TTDA convention in Houston, which also featured a well-attended trade show and Steve Disney, Tire Association of North America president, as a keynote speaker.
The TTDA Tire Dealer of the Year award "was a complete surprise," said White. "I couldn't say a word, which you know was unusual for me."
A questionnaire was mailed to the TTDA's 300 members asking for nominations for the award. "I didn't even see that mailing," White said. "I don't know how I missed it. I had no inkling of what was to come."
White also will celebrate 60 years in business next month. "I started when I was 11," White added.
