The Dealer of the Year Award recognizes an individual dealer for their leadership within the industry, their dedication towards growing their business into a successful entity and their commitment and legacy to their community.
Cervus Equipment believes leadership development is critical in achieving growth and success. Ensuring employees have the opportunity to develop as a leader is, and will continue to be a top priority for Cervus.
“Developing leaders to successfully manage and grow today’s businesses is what all organizations need to focus on for the future,” notes Peter Lacey during his acceptance speech.
