Feeny gets nod for 2004 TMQDA

November 23, 2010
Dan Feeny advanced from among six candidates to become the CATA's nominee for the 2004 Time Magazine Quality Dealer Award. Winners will be announced Jan. 31 at the opening session of the National Automobile Dealers Association convention in Las Vegas. The TMQDA recognizes new-vehicle dealers in the United States for exceptional performance in their dealerships combined with distinguished community service. Candidates are nominated by state and metro associations, and finalists are chosen by a faculty panel from the University of Michigan. One Time Magazine Quality Dealer of the Year is named from among the finalists. Feeny is president of Feeny Chrysler-Jeep in Elgin and Feeny Dodge in Palatine. Both dealerships have maintained Five Star status since DaimlerChrysler instituted the certification program. Feeny served nine years on the CATA board of directors; he was board chairman in 1999-2000. He has been chairman for 10 years of Palatine-based Buehler YMCA's youth activity fund, and he organizes an annual raffle and dinner dance to raise funds to send underprivileged children to summer camp. Feeny's dealerships also sponsor hockey, baseball and soccer youth teams. Other CATA dealers who were candidates this year based on their achievements at their dealerships and in their communities are Emir Abinion of Landmark Ford of Niles; James Miller of Miller Chevrolet- Oldsmobile in Matteson; Robert Nielsen of Nielsen Buick-Jeep-Subaru in Gary, Ind.; Tom Peck Sr. of Tom Peck Ford of Huntley; and Bob Rohrman of the Rohrman Auto Group.
