ATLANTA – Manheim’s first annual Automotive Woman of the Year Award was presented to Marcy H. Maguire, president of Maguire Automotive Group in East Windsor, N.J.

The award was created by Manheim to honor a woman who has been a leader in her profession and has contributed to improving the automotive industry. Maguire, and future recipients of the award, will receive a plaque and a $15,000 contribution, which will be made in their names to a scholarship fund for female students at Northwood University.

Besides running a dealership with her husband, Bob, former National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) chairman, Maguire is currently an at-large member of NADA. She serves on NADA’s Convention and Public Affairs committees and is a member of both the American International Automobile Dealers Association and the Women’s Automotive Association International, and ambassador of the National Automobile Dealers Charitable Foundation and the New Jersey Coalition of Automotive Retailers.
