Doug Gerald of Gerald Kia of Naperville has been named by Kia Motors America as one of only 19 dealers in the U.S. to earn a spot in the brand's prestigious President's Club.
The Kia President's Club recognizes dealerships that have achieved the highest overall sales volume and outstanding customer satisfaction. Honorees are selected from Kia's network of nearly 800 dealerships in the country.
This is the first time Gerald Kia of Naperville has received President's Club honors.
"2016 was a historic year for the Kia brand in the United States and, on behalf of the Kia family, I would like to recognize and thank Doug Gerald and the staff at Gerald Kia of Naperville for their commitment to exemplary sales performance and top-notch customer satisfaction," Justin Sohn, president and CEO of Kia Motors America, said in a news release.
Last year, Kia set an annual sales record in the U.S. and celebrated the production of the brand's 2 millionth vehicle assembled at its manufacturing plant in West Point, Georgia.
Kia President's Club honorees receive dealership promotional materials as well as a custom-made crystal 2016 Kia President's Club statuette.
