June 4, 2009 
Bob Redinger - President and General Manager of Ready Honda
is given the 2009 Canadian Automobile Dealer Association Dealer Laureate Award in the category of Business Innovator.
Here is some background about the award: Between 1972 and 2001,
 CADA and the provincial dealer associations presented the Dealer of Excellence Award to Canada's finest dealers,
 first under the sponsorship of TIME Magazine and later in partnership with Maclean's/L'actualité.
 The Dealer of Excellence award was generally regarded as Canada's most prestigious and highly sought-after dealer award.
Over the course of thirty years, change swept through the auto industry, with tremendou
s impact on the manner in which dealers operate. As a result, CADA recognized in 2002 that it was time to re-think its
 national dealer recognition program. The CADA Laureate is the result of three years
 of research and development by a special ad hoc committee charged with this task. The Laureate program has a broader scope than the
 previous Dealer of Excellence award. For the first time, CADA's national dealer
recognition program acknowledges
the different ways in which dealers contribute to the industry and their communities with Laureate titles to be bestowed
 for career achievements in Retail Operations, Business Innovation and Ambassadorship.
The Laureate program also introduces a benchmark for the assessment of nominees   the new CADA Charter.
Dealers honoured with the title of Laureate will be those deemed to epitomize the spirit of the Charter.
The Laureate program was launched in September, 2005, as a partnership between CADA and Industrial Alliance
 Pacific Insurance and Financial Services Inc., the exclusive sponsor of the Laureate program.
The role of IAP in the Laureate program is to champion dealer excellence and to enhance the visibility and appreciation of the
contribution made by new car and truck dealers day in and day out in virtually every Canadian community.
 The mission of the Canadian Automobile Dealers Association is to deal with issues of a national nature which affect
the well-being of new car and truck dealers in Canada. CADA is committed to action in the following areas:
CADA also supports the activities and services of the following organizations and industry stakeholders:
CADA Charitable Foundation - Canadian Automotive Institute- CARS Council
Automotive press- International Automotive Hall of Fame
 Government Relations|The development and modification of federal policies and legislation affecting new car and truck
dealers.Industry Relations The protection of the interests of new car and truck dealers under the franchise system.
 Legal Providing legal assistance to new car and truck dealers with respect to industry relations issues.
 Member Services Providing ventures and services which will benefit new car and truck dealers, financially or otherwise.
 Public Relations Enhancing the image of the new car and truck dealer in Canada. CADA's ad hoc program committee
identified the benefits that the Laureate program should deliver to CADA,
 the provincial dealer associations and the winning dealers. For CADA, the Laureate program must:
 Enhance the credibility of automobile dealers with the Canadian consumer Recognize the best dealer
"Best of Breed" Profile & favour the image of CADA as the national dealer organization For provincial dealer associations,
the Laureate program must: Recognize the best dealer
"Best of Breed" Enhance the relationship with suppliers, sponsors and other industry stakeholders
 Profile & favour the image of the provincial/regional association as a dealer organization For winning dealers,
the Laureate program must: Enhance the dealer's image with the consumer, the dealer's manufacturer
and the dealer's peer group Be exclusive and prestigious in nature, with awards reserved for the select few Create
a public relations and marketing impact in the dealer's community The Laureate was crafted to become the highest honour a
 Canadian dealer can attain over the course of his or her career.
This is the underlying theme of the program objectives that were established at the outset by the ad hoc committee.
 To reach the pinnacle in an industry crowded with award programs,
the Laureate will distinguish itself via the rigour of the nomination and evaluation processes. Nomination Approximately
3,500 industry members will have the authority to nominate dealers for the Laureate award,
including association member dealers, manufacturing company staff, supplier company staff and association executives.
An independent 3rd party administrator will handle the nomination process in a confidential manner.
 Dealers will not be allowed to nominate themselves. Evaluation A three-phase process will be used to evaluate candidates:
In phase one, a list of candidates will be compiled comprising the names put forward
in the nomination process. The list will be culled using criteria established by a special industry committee.
The purpose of phase one is to ensure that all dealers, regardless of the category of nomination,
 are first validated as excellent all-around dealers. Candidates who meet the criteria will be welcomed as official nominees for the Laureate title.
 In phase two, the official nominees will receive a personalized letter inviting
them to visit the secure section of the Laureate website to accept nomination and complete a questionnaire specific to the
category in which they have been nominated (Retailer, Innovator, Ambassador).
The questionnaire will be based on the CADA Charter , which spells out the evaluation criteria used in the Laureate program
 while also serving as a guideline for all dealers who aspire to excellence.
The dealer information captured via the questionnaires will be tabulated by an impartial 3rd-party administrator and the administrator will create a
 list of five finalists for each of the three categories.
 In phase three, the Richard Ivey School of Business, University of Western Ontario, will select one Laureate from each list of five finalists.
Dealers can be nominated for the Laureate title in three categories:
 Retailer Laureate   for outstanding achievement within an individual dealership Innovator Laureate 
for initiatives that significantly enhance performance or broaden the scope of business for new car and truck dealers
Ambassador Laureate   for extraordinary service to the community and/or industry The special committee that created the
 Laureate program identified a need for an objective benchmark
 against which dealer performance can be evaluated as it relates to the category of nomination. Having such a benchmark would add rigour
and consistency to the selection process while providing guidance for all
association member dealers who strive for excellence. The CADA Charter fills this need. The CADA Charter comprises CADA's Mission Statement,
the national Dealer Code of Ethics and the Criteria for Dealer Excellence.
 It is the Dealer Code of Ethics and the Criteria for Dealer Excellence that reflect the criteria used in the Laureate selection process.
Nominee questionnaires are formulated on the basis of these criteria and their
 accompanying Guide to the Criteria. The National Dealer Code of Ethics Laureates adhere to the highest standards and principles of ethical conduct.
Laureates always conduct business with integrity, competence and accountability.
The Criteria for Dealer Excellence Retail Operations   Retailer Laureates excel in all areas of dealership operations, achieving consistently excellent financial results.
They are leaders in terms of market performance,
 franchise performance and customer service, and they utilize systems and processes to enhance operations. Business Innovation 
Innovator Laureates implement initiatives that enhance dealership performance or
 expand the scope of the business in search of new sources of revenues. They are leaders in terms of organizational development, revenue growth,
competitive positioning, efficiencies & responsiveness,
and improvement & learning. Ambassadorship   Ambassador Laureates achieve exceptional results beyond the walls of the dealership.
 They are renowned for their service to the community and/or the retail auto industry.
 They excel in their industry, community and business relationships and they fulfill all social and environmental responsibilities.
The Guide to the Criteria CADA has prepared detailed explanations and examples
 of outstanding performance for each of the Criteria for Dealer Excellence. These are listed in the Guide to the Criteria.
