Newcomers Scher, Schiele, Webb join incumbents Dolan, Loquercio, Roberts in board election wins

November 18, 2010

Beautiful weather—cloudless, 70 degrees—greeted 500 golfers June 12 at Cog Hill Golf & Country Club in Lemont, where the players gathered as part of theCATA’s annual golf outing and dinner. At the dinner, balloting results for the association’s board of directors showed three incumbents gaining re-election and three newcomers joining the board.

 

Bob Loquercio won election to a third a final three-year term on the CATA board and is expected to be named by his fellow directors later this month as the board’s next chairman. Loquercio operates Elgin Toyota-Scion, Chicago Northside Toyota-Scion and Elgin Hyundai.

 

Mary Fran Dolan (Freeway Ford-Sterling Truck Sales, Lyons) and Desmond Roberts (Advantage Chevrolet, Hodgkins) gained their second terms on the board.

 

Monty Scher (Rogers Buick-Chevrolet-Pontiac-GMC-Hyundai); Kurt Schiele, president of the Elmhurst Auto Group (BMW, Jaguar, Scion and Toyota); and John Webb (Packey Webb Ford, Wheaton, and Webb Dodge, Glen Ellyn) won their first board elections. All the terms from this month’s election are until June 2009.

 

Terry D’Arcy, whose CATA board chairmanship ends this month, spoke at the dinner about the new Service Management Bootcamps being launched this summer by the CATA, in association with NCM Associates, which pioneered the 20 Group concept. The Bootcamps yield to Service Manager 20 Groups later this year. See the flier in this newsletter for program details.
