It’s time again when SubPrime Auto Finance News engages with the industry for one of our most successful annual projects — "The CEO Issue."
In an ongoing effort to recognize the chief executive officers who are flourishing in today’s competitive marketplace, SubPrime Auto Finance News is asking the industry to nominate the CEOs of auto finance companies and their critical support service providers to be included in the March/April print edition that’s dubbed, “The CEO Issue.”
Between now and 5 p.m. ET on Feb. 20, nominations along with a high-resolution photograph and explanations as to why the CEO is successful can be sent to SubPrime Auto Finance News senior editor Nick Zulovich via email at [email protected]
Here are some example questions to be answered to enhance nominations:
—What moves has the CEO made to place the company into position to be successful?
—How does the CEO cultivate a productive environment that inspires the organization at all levels?
—Why is this CEO an example of successful leader who lifts the value of not just the company, but also the entire industry?
To review the rundown of CEOs honored in last year’s issue, the digital version can be found here.
SubPrime Auto Finance News publisher Bill Zadeits explained why this endeavor has become one of the highlights of the editorial calendar.
“As our industry continues to evolve, CEOs face many challenges to protect the prosperity of their organizations, not only in the present, but also several quarters and years down the road,” Zadeits said. “The auto finance industry is extremely fortunate to have some of the best leaders who handle those challenges quite well.
“Each year, our network of industry partners has raised its collective hand so we can showcase these impressive executives,” Zadeits continued. “We’re excited to learn more about each of these talented CEOs who will guarantee this $1 trillion economic pillar continues to flourish.”
Along with it being, “The CEO Issue,” the March/April edition of SubPrime Auto Finance News also will focus on both Vehicle Finance Conference hosted by the American Financial Services Association as well as the National Convention & Expo orchestrated by the National Automobile Dealers Association — signature industry events that run from March 20-25 in Las Vegas.
So if you have a longstanding relationship with or report to a CEO who should be included in “The CEO Issue,” send your nominations, images and responses to the sample questions listed above to SubPrime Auto Finance News editor Nick Zulovich at [email protected] Nominations will be accepted through Feb. 20.
