New York Dealer Andy Heck Receives 2019 J.B. Summers Award

(Fiarfax, VA) -- Former RVDA chairman Andy Heck of Alpin Haus in Amsterdam, NY, joined the ranks of industry leaders who have received the James B. Summers Award, RVDA’s highest honor.

Nominations for the award, which was established in 1986, are submitted each year to the RVDA board of directors, who choose the honoree by a secret and written ballot. Board members commented that “Andy Heck was a great leader of the organization during a tough economic period and helped guide the association through,” and “Andy runs a dealership that should be a model for all dealers.”

“To say that I’m shocked to receive this award would be an understatement,” said Heck from the stage of today’s annual meeting. “Ours is such a close-knit community. It’s just awesome. I’ll continue to do my part to give back and to work on behalf of our organization.”
