3 newcomers are among 5 dealers elected to CATA board of directors

June 14, 2019
Three newcomers joined two incumbents in winning three-year terms on the CATA board of directors, in election results announced June 11 at the CATA’s annual meeting and golf outing.
Winners of a second term were Dan Marquardt (Marquardt of Barrington), and Kelly Webb Roberts (Genesis of Highland [Ind.]; Webb Chevrolet, Oak Lawn; Webb Chevrolet of Plainfield; Webb Hyundai, Highland, Ind.; and Webb Hyundai-Mitsubishi, Merrillville, Ind.). A director can serve up to three terms on the board.
Embarking on their first terms: Dan Heller (Heller Ford, El Paso; Heller Lincoln-Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep-Ram, Pontiac); Scott Muller (Muller Auto Group: Acura, Honda, Subaru, Volkswagen); and Steve Phillipos (Chevrolet of Homewood).
At the annual meeting, CATA Chairman Tony Guido encouraged fellow dealers to participate in the upcoming Barbecue for the Troops fundraiser for the USO of Illinois on July 13. In six years, CATA dealers have helped raise more than $750,000 for programs that support USO programs and services for deployed troops and their families.
"Like the Chicago Auto Show," Guido said, "the USO Barbecue for the Troops has become a signature event on the calendar for Chicago-area new-car dealers. We already have more than 100 dealers who have committed to hosting an event this July.
"From a simple collection center to a full-blown barbecue, it’s not hard to host and help raise money for the USO of Illinois. Most importantly, it’s not too late."
Dealers interested in learning more about hosting a fundraiser should contact the CATA’s Jim OBrill, at (630) 424-6085; or Jennifer Morand, at (630) 424-6084.
