(New York, NY, February 9, 2021) – Timothy Crenwelge, dealer and general manager of Crenwelge Motors of Kerrville Inc., a Chrysler, Dodge, GMC, Jeep and Ram dealership in Kerrville, Texas, was named one of four regional finalists for the 2021 TIME Dealer of the Year award today.

Crenwelge is one of a select group of 40 dealer nominees from across the country who will be honored at the 104th annual National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) Show being held virtually February, 9-11, 2021. The announcement of this year’s annual award was made by Viktoria Degtar, Global Chief Revenue Officer, TIME, and Doug Timmerman, president of Auto Finance for Ally Financial.

The TIME Dealer of the Year award is one of the automobile industry’s most prestigious and highly coveted honors. Recipients are among the nation’s most successful auto dealers who also demonstrate a long-standing commitment to community service.  Crenwelge, 61, was chosen to represent the Texas Automobile Dealers Association in the national competition – one of only 40 auto dealers nominated for the 52nd annual award from more than 16,000 nationwide.

“I literally grew up in the car business and never once considered doing anything else,” nominee Crenwelge said. “I am a third-generation dealer, and my dad taught me that commitment to family and community is the most important thing. This is the business model I follow and what has gotten me to where I am today.”
