Each year Modern Tire Dealer selects one tire dealer for its annual Tire Dealer of the Year award. The collection of past winners is an honor roll of inspiring innovators and leaders who have changed the tire industry. When a new tire dealer is selected to join those ranks, he or she is highlighted in our September issue and featured on the cover of MTD. The Tire Dealer of the Year's favorite charity also receives a donation of $1,000 from MTD, and a portion of the proceeds from all congratulatory ads that appear in the September issue.
In 1997 John McCarthy Jr. was named president of the tire dealership his grandfather started in 1926. He’s transformed McCarthy Tire Service into one of the largest commercial tire dealers in the U.S. via acquisitions and additional service offerings fleet customers require. The company operates 65 service locations and 10 retread shops along the East Coast, generating more than $400 million in annual sales.Read more about our Tire Dealer of the Year
