Ford Announces Salute To Dealers Award Winners Honoring Dealer Contributions to Their Communities
LAS VEGAS, Feb. 14, 2020 – Ford and Lincoln dealers in the United States overwhelmingly gave back to their communities last year, with 30 percent of respondents giving more than $50,000 per year while 35 percent committed between 10 and 20 hours each month to charitable giving – according to Ford Motor Company’s annual survey on dealer giving.
The generosity of Ford and Lincoln dealers is reflected in how much so many of them give. “Our dealers are valued partners in building trust for and loyalty to the Ford brand with our customers,” said Edsel B. Ford II, who chairs the Salute to Dealers awards program and is a member of the Ford board of directors.
It was at this ceremony last year Edsel Ford II introduced his son, Henry Ford III, as the future host of the Salute To Dealers event. With 2019 being a transition year in leadership for the Salute To Dealers event, Henry Ford III looks forward to continuing the tradition started by his father.
My father spearheaded this initiative 20 years ago and I am grateful for the opportunity to continue the very fulfilling work of recognizing our dealers for all they do to support communities across the globe every day, said Ford.
