Honoring our Mark of Excellence Winners

Each year General Motors honors the outstanding sales professionals in our industry with their Mark of Excellence Award. This award recognizes the top achievers for their outstanding sales, customer satisfaction, product knowledge and professionalism. It’s not an easy accomplishment and only about five percent of all GM salespeople nationwide qualify each year. These employees work long hours to meet their sales objectives, go out of their way to ensure that their customer’s needs are satisfied, and spend many hours in product training.
