Cox Automotive presented Ford’s Linda Silverstein with its 12th annual Barbara Cox Automotive Woman of the Year Award during a breakfast at the NADA Convention on Saturday.
The remarketing and rental operations general manager was recognized for her business leadership, community advocacy and commitment to advancing the automotive industry.
“Linda is exactly the type of professional the automotive industry needs more of. By sharing her experiences through mentoring, she is helping develop future leaders,” said Cox Automotive president Sandy Schwartz.
“This award is named after the late Barbara Cox, one of our owners and the mother of Jim Kennedy, our chairman. Linda shares many of the same qualities and all of the values that we admire in Mrs. Cox, including showing her appreciation for the positive influences in her life by giving back. I am honored to present this award to Linda on behalf of Cox Automotive.”
