WANADA was proud to select John Altman of the Beyer Auto Group as its 2023 nominee for the TIME Dealer of the Year award. Altman is one of a select group of 48 dealer nominees from across the country who were honored at the 106th annual National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) Show in Dallas, Texas, on January 27, 2023.
The TIME Dealer of the Year award is one of the automobile industry’s most prestigious and highly coveted honors. The award recognizes the nation’s most successful auto dealers who also demonstrate a long-standing commitment to community service.
“I am extremely grateful for the wonderful opportunity I have been given by my family, who started this business in 1973,” nominee Altman said. “To this day, as the head of the group, I still work to earn the right to have this job and lead our team. And the harder I work, the more I love what I do.”
An active member in WANADA, Altman has served on the board of directors since 2016 and was named treasurer in 2021 and secretary in 2022. He is also director of the association’s Automobile Dealer Education Institute, which invests in training and educational programs to bring young people into the auto industry.
“Trade associations are critical to the future of our industry,” Altman said. “With so many threats to our business model, these organizations need to be supported so they have the resources to fight for our livelihood.”Download Bulletin PDF
