Polk supports 16th Annual Urban Wheel Awards

19 January 2012 Marc Bland

The 2012 Auto Show Week began for me like years past with the 16th Annual Urban Wheel Awards.Event Photos

The Decisive Media event held at the Motor City Casino Sound Board recognizes African American, Asian and Hispanic achievers in the automotive industry. The event also serves as an annual forum for networking among ethnic automotive leaders and highlights green vehicle technology.

> The evening began with an event honoring Bill Perkins as the first African American Chairman of the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS). The actual show was co-hosted by two nationally recognized personalities: Award winning actress, Phylicia Rashad and ABC News Anchor, John Quinones.On behalf of the entire Polk organization, I want to thank Randi Payton and the Decisive Media team for once again allowing the automotive leaders of tomorrow (current high school and college students) to attend the Urban Wheel Awards. I'm a firm believer that seeing is the first step to achieving and this event definitely allows young people to see and meet automotive executives, dealers and suppliers from across the country.Congrats again to all of the 2012 Urban Wheel Award Winners. These are my thoughts about the 16th Annual Urban Wheel Awards, I'd love to hear your comments or any highlights you'd like to share from this year's event. My next blog topic will be "Ethnic Leaders Recognized in Polk Automotive Loyalty Awards."
