“It is humbling to be to be a company honored by the Weatherhead School of Management with this award ,” said Kelly Price, Chief Executive Officer of NAE/NWAN. “We built our company intent on making a difference, not only in our business relationships, but in the lives of our assoicates and with everyone we interact with on a daily basis. Part of our culture is an environment of constant gratitude, as our team works tirelessly at raising money for the Cleveland Christian Home, along with many other charities and organizations around Northeast Ohio and throughout the country,” said Mrs. Price. “I believe this culture has shaped our company into the organization it has become today, and I am grateful to my entire team for working together to achieve this level of success.”

“We are committed, not only to running a successful business, but also changing people’s lives in the process,” said David Neuenschwander, President of NAE/NWAN. “We cannot have the mission-centric culture, or our success, without a strong commitment from our team. I make it a point to challenge our team to think differently and not to accept the status quo. I believe the commitment to our mission that our associates demonstrate on a daily basis attributes to us being where we are as a company today.”

“This year’s winners reflect the evolution and diversification of our region’s economy in the last 30 years,” said Michael Goldberg, an assistant professor at Case Western Reserve University’s Weatherhead School of Management, which compiles the annual ranking. “Their success is an endorsement of Northeast Ohio’s ability to grow companies and encourage entrepreneurship, which are essential to our economic future.”

Motorcycle Warranty Forever® Making Immediate Impact

Bike Week in Daytona, FL has historically been the unofficial kick-off of motorcycle season for the majority of the riders in the country. Warm weather, extended weekends and long cruises with our friends are just some of the things we riders look forward to as spring settles in and snow piles disappear.

For NAE/NWAN, the move into the second quarter signifies an upturn in business, especially motorcycle business. Riders put away their Sorels and replace them with their riding leathers. They park the snowblower and put a fresh polish on their V-Twin. And, finally, they put away their down jackets and replace them with sunscreen and sunglasses.

With the release (and immediate success) of Motorcycle Warranty Forever, those long rides become even more casual and care-free. No longer will you have to worry about the high cost of repairs to the motor and transmission. Motorcycle Warranty Forever covers the original owner of the bike in the event of costly repairs….for life. All the owner has to do is perform the recommended maintenance at the prescribed intervals, and they’re covered…. for life! No cost, no deductible and no expiration are just some of the benefits Motorcycle Warranty Forever riders will experience.

Dealers are seeing Motorcycle Warranty Forever as a way to provide an exclusive and enhanced ownership experience for their customers. Dealers are also seeing customers driving hours to shop at a dealership offering Warranty Forever on all of their eligible units. In addition to driving further, customers have also shown patience in waiting for “their” bike to come in and be available with coverage for life.

LAS VEGAS — Organizers of the annual P&A Leadership Summit have announced that Jimmy Atkinson, COO of AUL Corp., will serve as a panel moderator and closing keynote speaker at the 2016 event, which will be held Aug. 30–31 at Paris Las Vegas.

National Automotive Experts Honored By Cleveland Christian Home

Cleveland Christian Home (CCH) celebrated its Homecoming with an Awards Luncheon and Open House event on Saturday, October 3, 2015.

Many of CCH’s warm-hearted supporters braved the cool and rainy morning to help celebrate a few of its special friends and generous donors with an honorary luncheon.  Attendees also had the opportunity to tour the CCH Residential Treatment Center.  The day’s theme, You’ll Never Walk Alone, served as a reminder to the children and families helped by Cleveland Christian Home that there are many people who care about them and will work together to spread hope and healing.

Among the deserved honorees was National Automotive Experts, Strongsville, OH who received the Invest in Children Award.

National Automotive Experts (NAE) is a shining star, not only to its dealers and agents but to the children and families whose lives they change by supporting Cleveland Christian Home.  Kelly Price, Founder and President and her fantastic team of employees and associates have developed amazing relationships with each other, and in 2007, NAE adopted Cleveland Christian Home with an enthusiasm that is contagious.

The creative ways they bring awareness of CCH’s mission and raise much needed funds to care for others is inspiring.  If you look at their website, there is an entire page dedicated to the work they do to make a difference in the their community.

The NAE, their families and even their church groups, now staff CCH’s Santa’s workshop every weekend in December leading up to Christmas.  They organize the space, wrap presents, write tags, create spreadsheets, and spread more cheer than they could possibly know.  That first Saturday is really special, because it is the day of NAE’s annual holiday party.  Staff from across the country—from Nebraska to Texas, Oklahoma to Pennsylvania, and (of course) Ohio spend their day volunteering in Santa’s Workshop.  This is just the start of their holiday rush and rally to make sure that each and every child CCH serves gets their hearts desire on Christmas morning!

NAE has also been the Presenting Sponsor of the CCH 5K Run and Walk for the Kids event at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo since 2012.  In addition to the sponsorship, the compassionate and caring crew goes ‘all out’ to participate and contribute to the event’s success.
