He will share insights on how dealers can better assist customers during asset acquisition to ensure they are able to maximize the value of their equipment and turn over their inventory at a moment that is optimal within the equipment’s life cycle.

“We are absolutely thrilled to announce our virtual 2020 Successful Dealer Award presentation. We were tremendously disappointed when it became clear we would not be able to present this year’s award during a private ceremony as we have in prior years, but we believe this year’s event, which is open to the entire medium- and heavy-duty dealer community, is a wonderful alternative,” says Lucas Deal, TPS editor. “By pivoting to a virtual presentation, we are able to welcome the entire industry to join us in recognizing this year’s great finalists.

“We also welcome the opportunity to expand our event by adding a keynote address from Al Barner of Fleet Advantage. Al is an expert on fleet purchasing and life cycle management and I believe his knowledge will be incredibly valuable for all dealer attendees. In the year of COVID-19, never has it been more important for fleets to make intelligent decisions about their equipment purchasing and Al’s expertise should enable all dealer attendees to be more informed and understanding of their customers’ needs.”

Finalists for this year’s Successful Dealer Award are Advantage Truck Group, Allstate Peterbilt Group, HK Truck Center, Housby and West Michigan International/K&R Truck Sales.
