NAE/NWAN Honored As A Medical Mutual Pillar Award Recipient For Community Service


CLEVELAND – National Automotive Experts (NAE/NWAN) is humbled to announce that they have been honored as one of the recipients of the Pillar Award. The Medical Mutual Pillar Award for Community Service, presented by Smart Business, honors businesses of all types and sizes that make outstanding contributions to their communities. Its purpose is to encourage a charitable environment, recognize creative efforts that make a difference, and demonstrate the ties between the for-profit and nonprofit worlds.

“We are so honored to have been recognized by Smart Business with this award,” said Kelly Price, Chief Executive Officer of NAE/NWAN. “I believe the company’s passion for community service transcends into everything we do and that is evident in our company culture,” said Price. “We are very forunate to have associates and partners that give without holding back. I have so much gratitude towards my team for their enthusiasm and dedication in giving back, especially in their support of the Cleveland Christian Home.”

Price set the mark high for her and her team. Her goal was to raise one million dollars for the Cleveland Christian Home (CCH). NAE/NWAN has reached this goal and they are still going. The money and time they have devoted have helped to buy school uniforms, build a new roof, and provide over 40 children with Christmas gifts. Although the CCH is the company’s main focus, NAE/NWAN also donates to the Martin Hennessey Inspiring Children Foundation, Megan Littlejohn Foundation, Safe Nest, and Susan G. Komen.

NAE/NWAN was presented with their award on December 6, 2017 at a 20th annual gala hosted by Smart Business at the La Centre™ Conference and Banquet Facility in Westlake, Ohio.

“We are so proud to be headquartered in Northeast Ohio. Cleveland is home for us and that is why we are so passionate about giving back to this community,” said David Neuenschwander, President of NAE/NWAN. “Kelly has shown us that giving back is so much more than providing financial support. She has instilled in us the importance of giving time, heart, soul, and plenty of smiles. This mentality has truly transformed NAE into a culture of passionate associates who make sure that those who don’t have enough, get enough. We march to that beat every single day as one team,” said Neuenschwander.

“NAE/NWAN is the type of organization and leadership team that truly understands the important symbiotic relationship between the for-profit and nonprofit worlds,” says Dustin S. Klein, publisher of Smart Business. “Their involvement in causes they care about underscores a real commitment to giving back. The impact is evident: NAE/NWAN is helping to strengthen the communities where we all live and work.”

MOTORCYCLE WARRANTY FOREVER® MAKING IMMEDIATE IMPACT


Bike Week in Daytona, FL has historically been the unofficial kick-off of motorcycle season for the majority of the riders in the country. Warm weather, extended weekends and long cruises with our friends are just some of the things we riders look forward to as spring settles in and snow piles disappear.

For NAE/NWAN, the move into the second quarter signifies an upturn in business, especially motorcycle business. Riders put away their Sorels and replace them with their riding leathers. They park the snowblower and put a fresh polish on their V-Twin. And, finally, they put away their down jackets and replace them with sunscreen and sunglasses.

With the release (and immediate success) of Motorcycle Warranty Forever, those long rides become even more casual and care-free. No longer will you have to worry about the high cost of repairs to the motor and transmission. Motorcycle Warranty Forever covers the original owner of the bike in the event of costly repairs….for life. All the owner has to do is perform the recommended maintenance at the prescribed intervals, and they’re covered…. for life! No cost, no deductible and no expiration are just some of the benefits Motorcycle Warranty Forever riders will experience.

Dealers are seeing Motorcycle Warranty Forever as a way to provide an exclusive and enhanced ownership experience for their customers. Dealers are also seeing customers driving hours to shop at a dealership offering Warranty Forever on all of their eligible units. In addition to driving further, customers have also shown patience in waiting for “their” bike to come in and be available with coverage for life.

Please contact Tom Johnson – Program Manager for available markets and agency partners in your area.
