Let me begin with a quote from Mary Kay Ash, American
businesswoman and founder of Mary Kay Cosmetics: “There are two things people
want more than sex and money… recognition and praise.”
While there is very little our
association can do about the first two desires, we can impact the latter.
Each year we recognize exceptional
people, products and companies in the auto care industry. They represent
the youthful future leaders, accomplished industry veterans, outstanding
products, contributors to training and education and innovators of technology.
I can’t match Mary Kay’s bold
statement, but I've always strongly believed that we cannot bestow too many
awards on deserving people and organizations. I encourage you to see the
superstars we recognized in 2013 here.
