Celebrating Excellence

The Automobile Executive of the Year Award stretches back to 1964 when Charles H. Patterson, founder of NCR Corporation, was named recipient of the very first Award. Mr. Patterson's company pioneered perhaps the most essential single device of the modern automotive economy: the cash register. Since then, the Automobile Executive of the Year has recognized breakthrough

thinking in all aspects of the auto industry in the US and around the world. As the global economy changes, and the automobile industry along with it, the Award will also evolve to reflect new trends such as advancing automation in manufacturing, the arrival of 'smart' cars, and the development of new fuels.
