About F&I's Annual Dealer of the Year Award

Now in its 17th year, the F&I Dealer of the Year award is handed out annually to an operation with a highly profitable F&I department that demonstrates a commitment to regulatory compliance and customer satisfaction. Dealership employees, general agents, vendors and F&I product providers are encouraged to nominate their stores and dealer clients for the award. The magazine will first select six F&I Pacesetters of the Year, which will serve as finalists for the coveted F&I Dealer of the Year trophy.
