Crow-Burlingame Announces President’s Council Winners


Recommended Posts

Who gets to drive the Corvette?

That was the question on everyone’s mind this week when Crow-Burlingame announced its 2022 President’s Council winners. Launched in 2006, The President’s Council is a yearly award that recognizes the company’s top 12 store managers in areas such as sales, profit, inventory management and expense control.

Winners receive commemorative plaques, custom apparel and an all-expenses paid trip to the Aftermarket Jackpot in Las Vegas this November. Those who have won three times or more also receive the prestigious President’s Council ring.

But ask anyone: The biggest motivator is the Corvette. Each winner gets the Corvette delivered to their town, and then it’s theirs to drive for a month – with everything from car washes to oil changes and gas paid for by the company.

Winners get to choose from two this year. One is  a 2019 Seabring Orange convertible with a V-8 engine. “It comes with everything Corvette offers except the turbo and standard shift,” VP & General Manager Tom Singleton told the group.

“The other Corvette, a white 2014 model, is exactly the same, except the interior is red and it’s five years older,” Singleton added.

Bryan Jones, a five-time winner from Fayetteville, Arkansas, was hoping to score the car during late October/early November. He grinned when it was his turn to name his car choice (the white one) and his month (officially November, but with the wiggle room usually given to winners who have a special occasion they are hoping to attend and show off the car).

“My daughter is getting married on Oct. 30,” Jones said. “I need the car that weekend!”

Thomas Martin, who officially retired in 2015 from Crow-Burlingame after 28 years of service, still serves as the official Corvette wrangler. It’s his job to keep the Corvette fleet in tip-top condition, and he facilitate the transfers between each winning manager. (Driving the ‘Vette between

destinations is a dirty job, but someone has to do it.)

He is the final word on dates. “We can definitely make that happen,” Martin said.

The other 11 winners nod and smile in agreement. It’s a family-owned company – since 1919 – and they wouldn’t have it any other way.

      Arnold Motor Supply has officially opened its new Lincoln, Nebraska, location at 2811 W O St.
      Lincoln residents are most likely familiar with the West O location and its roots dating back to the early 1980s as Snow Auto Supply. Joe H. Snow served as a colonel in the U.S. Air Force for 28 years before starting the family business. His son Spencer continued the legacy in 1998 and has been managing the store for the past 25 years.
      “We’ve wanted to enter the Lincoln market for many years and have had a long relationship with Spencer Snow,” said Eric Johnson, president and managing partner at Arnold Motor Supply. “We’re excited to bring our automotive and commercial vehicle focus to the location while continuing the strong paint and refinish capabilities Snow Auto Supply has always provided the community,”
      Arnold Motor Supply entered into agreement with Snow Auto Supply and officially purchased the business earlier this month. The store has an extensive selection of replacement parts for automotive, heavy-duty trucks, collision (including PPG refinish paint), agriculture and fleet applications.
      “We also have the advantage of daily deliveries from our distribution centers and surrounding stores,” added Mike Molle, vice president of store operations at Arnold Motor Supply. “Having a readied supply of parts ensures that whether you’re a DIYer or professional repair shop, we’re going to get you the parts you need.”
