Nominations for the 2023 Auto Finance Excellence Awards now open

Nominations are now open for the 2023 Auto Finance Excellence Awards, which celebrate achievement in the automotive lending and leasing industries. 

Companies and executives may nominate themselves or colleagues for excellence in community service, competitor performance, customer service, human resources, information technology, leadership and operations. 

The Auto Finance Excellence Awards, given since 2005, are the only awards given specifically for achievement in the auto finance industry. Last year’s winners were Tricolor Auto Acceptance, which won for community service and Vroom, which took home the award for strategy.  

Melinda Zabritski, senior director of automotive financial solutions at Experian, and Ian Anderson, group president at Westlake Financial, won leadership awards. 

Previous winners have included Toyota Financial Services, NextGear Capital and Bank of America, to name just a few. 

A panel of judges will review nominations and determine the 2023 winners, who will be announced Monday, Oct. 30, during Auto Finance Summit 2023 at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. The winners will be featured in Auto Finance News coverage after the event. 

The Auto Finance Summit,  AFN’s premier industry event, continues to bring together the best and brightest in the industry for unparalleled networking and professional education.
