7 dealers vying for 5 CATA director seats

May 19, 2017
Seven candidates, including one incumbent, have been nominated to fill five openings on the board of directors of the Chicago Automobile Trade Association. Each term lasts three years beginning next month.
A summary of the candidates’ qualifications was mailed May 18 to CATA dealer members, and election ballots will be sent May 26 to those dealer members whose association dues are up-to-date.
Completed ballots must be received by 12 p.m. June 9 by the CATA’s auditing firm, Crowe Horwath LLP, which will tally the submissions. Results will be announced at the June 13 golf outing at Cog Hill Golf & Country Club in Lemont.
The incumbent, Bill Haggerty (Haggerty Buick-GMC, Villa Park; Haggerty Chevrolet, Glen Ellyn; and Haggerty Ford, West Chicago), is seeking his third and final term on the board. A director can serve a maximum of three, three-year terms.
Additional nominees include John Crane, proprietor of 10 Hawk franchises in Bridgeview, Forest Park, Joliet and Oak Lawn; Fred Marks (Classic Kia-Toyota, Waukegan); Anthony M. Loquercio (Elgin Hyundai); Steve T. Phillipos (Chevrolet of Homewood); Jason Roberts (Advantage Chevrolet, Boliingbrook and Hodgkins); and Richard Wickstrom (Wickstrom Ford-Lincoln and Wickstrom Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge-Ram, Barrington).
A committee of current and former CATA board officers nominated the candidates. The CATA board totals 15 directors.
