Honoured to have former President of the CADA……
We were honoured to have former President of the CADA (Canadian Automotive Dealers Association), Rick Gauthier, at the Serpa Automotive Boutique
Frank Serpa and Rick have become close friends after working alongside one another for many years and it was great having Rick stop by for a surprise visit to our newly renovated showroom in Aurora!
Rick’s roots in the automotive industry include management positions with General Motors (GMAC) and Chrysler Financial Services as well as owner operator of a retail dealership. In 1997, he began his longstanding position of President and CEO of the CADA. Under his leadership, the CADA grew significantly.
Rick was instrumental in the development of an annual scholarship from CADA and presented to an ABSC student who has completed a successful co-op placement in a new car or truck dealership, as well as two honorary memorial awards to students based on their on contributions to quality of life at the school
