In an effort to broaden its outreach and enhance relationships with independent stores, GWC Warranty hosted its first-ever Elite Dealer Council at the company’s headquarters on May 19.

Comprised of some of GWC’s top independent dealers from across the country, the company explained the Elite Dealer Council was hand selected to meet with GWC leadership and gain a deeper understanding of GWC Warranty’s history, values and outlook for the future while providing invaluable insight directly to GWC Warranty decision makers.

Company officials pointed out the council members will provide feedback several times throughout their one-year term that will be used to help GWC craft a more dealer-focused experience aimed at better serving automotive dealers nationwide with improved services and products to help them sell more cars.
