CATA nominates Hanley Dawson for 2006 Time magazine award

November 22, 2010

Hanley Dawson III, whose Patrick Dealer Group oversees seven car lines, has been nominated by the CATA for the 2006 Time Magazine Quality Dealer Award.


Each state and metropolitan dealer association can advance one nominee for the award. Five finalists and one national winner will be named Feb. 10, at the opening of the 2006 NADA convention in Orlando, Fla. 

The annual award recognizes new-vehicle dealers in the United States for exceptional performance in their dealerships combined with distinguished community service.


Three of the Patrick franchises rank tops in market share, and all of them consistently achieve above market and national average scores in customer satisfaction for both service and sales.


Patrick is Chicago’s third largest dealership in terms of sales, with BMW, Cadillac, Hyundai, Jaguar, Mini, Saab and Volvo franchises.


Dawson has served as board chairman of Loyola Academy in Wilmette and of Regis University in Denver, Colo., and he serves on the board of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Chicago. He supports Cristo Rei Jesuit High School, in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood; and established a scholarship fund in memory of his father-in-law at Loyola University’s Stritch School of Medicine.


The Patrick Dealer Group regularly holds fund-raisers for the Children’s Place Association, for children and families affected by HIV and AIDS; the Susan G.Komen Breast Cancer Foundation; and Mercy Home for Boys and Girls.
