Stasek honored for TMQDA nomination

November 24, 2010
William R. Stasek, president of Bill Stasek Chevrolet in Wheeling, was among 66 dealers nationwide honored as recipients of the 2002 Time Magazine Quality Dealer Award, in a Jan. 26 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 prestigious award," said NADA Chairman Carter Meyers, "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 TMQDA finalists. George Nahas of Tavares, Fla., was named winner of the 2002 award. Stasek earned the nomination of the Chicago Automobile Trade Association. 
Stasek, a past CATA chairman, joined Tom Todd Chevrolet as a partner in 1978 and later became sole proprietor. His dealership is a 10-time Chevrolet Customer Satisfaction Leader. 
He is a member of the benefit council of The Cradle, a private adoption agency in Evanston that is one of the benefiting organizations of the Chicago Auto Show's First Look for Charity. Stasek also supports OMNI Youth Services in the northwest Chicago suburbs. 
Stasek is active in the Wheeling, Buffalo Grove, Mount Prospect, Northbrook and Deerfield communities near his dealership. In 1996, he won the Wheeling/Prospect Heights Chamber of Commerce "Business of the Year" Award.
 Tribune special section spotlights dealers' community goodwill 
A Chicago Tribune special advertising section published on the eve of the Chicago Auto Show enabled local dealers to inform the public of their community goodwill. 
The Feb. 6 section, "Driving Change Across Chicago," featured 32 pages of advertorial content that was delivered to the Tribune's 2 million regular readers and to out-of-town media and manufacturer representatives at select hotels. 
Dozens of dealers identified charitable activities they support and other forms of volunteerism. Their community support also can be measured in the number of workers their dealerships employ.
