Feeny honored for TMQDA nomination

November 22, 2010
Dan Feeny, president of Feeny Chrysler-Jeep in Elgin and Feeny Dodge in Palatine, was among 63 dealers nationwide honored as recipients of the 2004 Time Magazine Quality Dealer Award, in a Jan. 31 ceremony as part of the annual NADA convention and exposition. The award recognizes new-car dealers for exceptional performance in their business coupled with distinguished community service. "The recipients of this award," said NADA Chairman Alan Starling, "do a lot more than just sell cars and trucks. They work diligently and untiringly to help their communities and their industry and are an inspiration to all of us." A panel of faculty members from the University of Michigan Graduate School of Business Administration selected five finalists. New Hampshire dealer Paul Holloway, a former NADA chairman, was named winner of the 2004 award. Feeny earned the nomination of the Chicago Automobile Trade Association. He is a former CATA chairman. A 29-year industry professional, Feeny entered the auto business as an F&I manager. After years as a sales manager, he opened Feeny Dodge in 1986. His dealerships sponsor many sports leagues and associations, as well as the Palatine Fire Department. Feeny said his most important civic achievement is his ties since 1992 with the Buehler YMCA (Palatine) Youth Activity fund.
