Dottie Fitzgerald is WANADA’s Time Dealer of the Year

Dorothy (Dottie) Fitzgerald, Fitzgerald Auto Malls, was WANADA’s nominee for the 2018 Time Dealer of the Year, being recognized as a recipient at the NADA Show in Las Vegas.


The Time Dealer of the Year Award is one of the automobile industry’s most prestigious honors, bestowed annually on the nation’s most successful dealers who also demonstrate a long-standing commitment to community service.


The award is sponsored by Time in association with Ally Financial, in cooperation with NADA. A panel of faculty members from the University of Michigan selects award recipients each year who are nominated by dealer associations across the country.


Dottie has worked with her brother, Jack, at Fitzgerald Auto Malls for many years. She has devoted much of her community efforts to providing educational opportunities to those wanting to pursue automotive careers, cofounding the Montgomery County (MD) Students Automotive Trades Foundation, a partnership between WANADA and Montgomery Country Public Schools. In addition to Fitzgerald, 46 other dealers were named Time Dealer of the Year.


WANADA offers hearty congratulations to Dottie Fitzgerald on this well-deserved recognition, often described as the highest honor a new-car dealer can earn.
