Four days remain before the Nov. 14 nomination deadline for F&I Management and Technology magazine’s 2009 F&I Pacesetter of the Year award.

The award recognizes five dealers who set the pace in running a finance department marked by professionalism, ethics and profitability. These dealers not only have a highly profitable F&I department, but also earn these profits by employing compliant, ethical and customer-centered processes that allow them to maintain a high CSI rating.

Nominators have until Nov. 14 to complete and return the submission form.

Qualified judges will evaluate all entries on the following criteria:

• Success/profitability in the finance department

• Sustaining a compliance culture

• Ethical employees and practices, regular employee training

• Community support and involvement

• Other programs, processes and initiatives that contribute to a top-notch F&I operation

The five winners will be honored with plaques and featured in the January 2008 issue of the magazine. One winner will be named the 2009 F&I Dealer of the Year Award, which will be announced during a ceremony at the 2009 NADA convention.
