Fifteen suppliers received American Honda’s Premier Partner Award from president and CEO Toshiaki Mikoshiba in a special ceremony held in September in Torrance, Calif. This year’s award recipients were selected from a pool of more than 1,000 eligible companies nominated by American Honda associates.
CDK Global was recognized “for providing business management solutions for our powersports and marine dealers,” according to Honda. Brando, Inc., was also recognized for its work in powersports, “for providing experiential marketing services for the motorcycle and UTV/ATV segments,” Honda reported.
The Premier Partner Award winners represent multiple industries and include small businesses and minority-owned operations. These suppliers play an important role in supporting Honda businesses and operations, including Honda and Acura automobiles, automobile engines and transmissions, Honda all-terrain vehicles, power equipment products and general purpose engines.
“This outstanding group of Premier Partner Award recipients embodies Honda’s philosophy of exceeding customer expectations,” said Charles Harmon, American Honda’s senior manager of procurement and corporate services. “They are critical members of the extended Honda family, and we thank them for their dedication to exceptional quality and service.”
