Nominations for the 2016 Auto Rental News Professional of the Year Awards are open — with the deadline of Sept. 12 quickly approaching.

For 2016, a new Professional of the Award will be presented in a new vendor category. The criteria for this award will be judged based on customer service, operations management, sales, leadership, and industry and community involvement for an associate from a vendor company to the auto rental industry.

Additionally, the award categories for operators — previously issued to an associate from a corporate, franchise, and independent location — will now be bestowed on one winner from any of those categories.

A panel of five judges will evaluate entries based on five areas of performance criteria: customer service, operations management, sales, leadership, and industry and community involvement. The judges are: Sharon Faulkner, executive director of the American Car Rental Association; Leslie Pujo, attorney at Plave Koch PLC; Ziad Khoury, founder and president of the Frontline Performance Group; Jim Tennant, principal of The Tennant Group; and Chris Brown, executive editor of Auto Rental News.

Winners will be recognized at an awards ceremony during the fifth annual Auto Rental Summit on Oct. 24-25, 2016 at the B Resort & Spa near Orlando, Fla. The winners will also be featured in an article in Auto Rental News magazine and online at www.AutoRentalNews.com.
