Deadline to Nominate 2014 Women in Remarketing is Near

CARY, N.C. - 

Don't miss the opportunity to honor the exceptional women of the remarkeitng industry. The March 7 deadline for nominations for the 2014 Women in Remarketing class is less than two weeks away.

Do you work with an exceptional female colleague? Know any leading ladies in the industry? Auto Remarketing is opening up nominations for the 2014 Women in Remarketing class. We want your help in honoring the top women leaders in the industry.

The April 15-30 print edition of Auto Remarketing will contain a special section designed to honor those women that will be chosen for its 2014 Women in Remarketing Class. But we can’t do it without your help.

Last year, our 2013 class included leaders such as Cheryl DeVries O’Brien, business manager, Kalamazoo Auto Auction; and Jenell Ross, president, Bob Ross Auto Group and chair of the AIADA, among other executives from, American Honda Motor Co. and Ally Financial, jus to name a few.

The deadline for nominations is Friday, March 7, and we want to make sure to honor the deserving women throughout the industry.

So, you know of someone who deserves to be in the 2014 list?

Here’s what you can do:

No matter what area of the remarketing business the female nominee comes from, she must have a history of going above and beyond the call of duty, whether through innovation, mentoring new professionals, philanthropy, education or more.

To nominate an executive, please email Staff Writer Sarah Rubenoff at, with the following information:

1)    Nominees full name, position, and full contact information, including a phone number and email address.
2)    A brief summary as to why you think this female should be selected. What makes her stand out? Please note that your summary may be quoted.

Auto Remarketing will be contacting the final class of honorees for a brief interview and will be requesting a professional headshot, as well.

We will include a brief profile on each honoree, along with her professional headshot, in our April 15 edition.

The 2014 Women in Remarketing Class will also be honored at this year’s Used Car Week Conferences in November.

Special advertising will also be available for this Women in Remarketing issue. For more information or to purchase space, please contact publisher Bill Zadeits at
