Who will be MTD's 2015 Tire Dealer of the Year?

Jan. 22, 2015

Nominations are now open for Modern Tire Dealer's 2015 Tire Dealer of the Year award.

Any deserving independent tire dealer is eligible for the competition except our previous winners. These winners have included dealers of all sizes, from large -- such as our 2014 winner Bruce Halle with hundreds of outlets -- to small, such as our 1995 winner, Tony Troilo, who had five stores. The important aspects are the success of the dealer's business practices and the impact he or she has had on the community.

Our contest is in its 23nd year. Over that time, our honored dealers have been involved in all aspects of the industry, including commercial and retail sales and automotive service.   

Nominating a tire dealer for our 2015 Tire Dealer of the Year award is easy. Fill out the nomination form you will find by using this link, or click on the ad on the right side of our homepage.

Once you identify the nominee, and who is making the nomination, we ask for an explanation of why the person deserves the honor. As the deadline approaches, Modern Tire Dealer editors will be in touch to get some additional background information.

As the nomination form states, our panel of independent judges look at the nominee’s business success, marketing skills, management skills, industry knowledge and community involvement.  

Winners receive $1,000 from Modern Tire Dealer for their favorite charity, a commemorative portrait and trophy. They also are featured in the cover article of our September issue. (Plus, our generous sponsors also have contributed thousands of dollars for our winners’ charities over the years.)

Our deadline for the 2015 award is May 22, 2015. Nominate yourself or another deserving dealer today. We’ll take it from there!
