"When Business Touches Community, Everyone Wins"
Two small pre owned vehicle dealerships, two Colorado Independent Automotive Dealer of the Year awards, and finally one National Independent Automotive "Dealer of the Year" Award for local businessman Joe McCloskey. As owner-operator of the 25 year old local business McCloskey Imports and 4x4s and McCloskey Truck Town, Joe McCloskey is the only Colorado dealer to pick up the state award twice, and now the only dealer in Colorado to come home with the National award as well.
From the initial opening McCloskey Motors in 1989, Joe has demonstrated excellent customer service, gaining him great community respect and building many solid business relationships and a valued reputation. Community service and investment have always been a high priority to Joe as a Colorado Springs community member. McCloskey through his dealerships have raised nearly 40 thousand dollars for the local Waldo Canyon Fire Relief Effort and Black Forest Fires through associations with the Pikes Peak Chapter of the American Red Cross, Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region, Care and Share of Southern Colorado, and City of Colorado Springs City Parks and Trails. He is actively involved with the Muscular Dystrophy Lockup Drive, supplying vehicles for the cause the last six years. Joe also supports the Wounded Warrior Project, and sponsors the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.
"He is the man of the century to me and my family," one customer said. Another endorsement, from a local organization "On our dealer's behalf," he said, "When business touches community everybody wins."
"We're just blown away," stated Joe as he began his acceptance speech, going on to thank his wife Ann and business partner, their children and grandchildren and the McCloskey Co-Workers "who are well deserving of this award". The Colorado Independent Auto Dealers Association for their help and guidance, the National Independent Auto Dealers Association, and the other independent dealers. "Thank you so much for this prestigious award, we are very humbled by it."
The McCloskey Motors mission statement reads, " Our goal is not to just sell you a vehicle today, it is to save you amazing amounts of time and money and deliver a level of customer service that exceeds your expectations."
Joe McCloskey, accompanied by his wife of 35 years and business partner Ann, accepted the prestigious award at the National Independent Quality Dealer of the Year Awards from Caesar's Palace, Las Vegas, Nevada on June 27th, 2013.
