Dealer.com, a provider of online marketing solutions for the automotive industry, announced that it has been named a finalist in the category of best overall business, by the American Business Awards. The award recognizes the achievements of companies, individual offices, and franchisees, which have excelled in their industry.
Headquartered in Burlington, Vt., Dealer.com has become one of the fastest growing companies offering online marketing solutions for the automotive industry.

Currently, one third of Dealer.com's employees are graduates of the program.
"It is an honor to be recognized by the American Business Awards as having one of the best overall companies," said Mark Bonfigli, president and CEO of Dealer.com. "We strive to provide our customers with the best and most innovative solutions, and this is really a reflection of how hard everyone at Dealer.com has worked to make this happen. We are very excited to be named a finalist, and look forward to when the winners will be announced."
