Dick Swope was nominated for the 2013 Time Dealer of the Year, one of the automobile industry’s most highly coveted and prestigious honors. The program, sponsored by Time Magazine and Ally Financial, honors new-car dealers in America who exhibit exceptional performance in their dealerships and perform distinguished community service.
This is Dick Swope’s second nomination. Swope said, “I’m honored to be nominated for such a prestigious award. Just walking across the stage with distinguished nominees from all over the country will be memorable for me. I am reminded every day that giving back to the community where you take your living is not an obligation, but an opportunity and a pleasure. That’s how my father and my uncle established the tradition within our company, and our associates believe in it as well.”
He is one of 57 dealers that will be honored. The award and winner will be announced at the National Automobile Dealer Association (NADA) in Orlando on February 9, 2013.
