NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, TEXAS – Scott France, senior vice president of Portfolio Management at Triad Financial, received the annual Special Achievement Award from the International Automotive Remarketers Alliance (IARA). France was recognized for his success in the remarketing industry, as well as his contributions to the community through volunteerism.

“In addition to investing 25 years in the auto finance arena, Scott has donated his time to an orphanage, several mentoring programs, hospice care, helping the poor and schools in remote areas of Central America. He is exactly the kind of person this award was meant for,” said David Alfonso, a board director for IARA. “We hope Scott’s example will inspire others to integrate volunteerism into their lives.”

France said, “I am greatly honored to accept the Special Achievement Award from IARA. It’s refreshing to be recognized for my work with local charities, as well as my industry accomplishments. The two go hand in hand. In fact, I believe serving in my community helps me be a more effective leader in the workplace.”

This is the eighth Special Achievement Award presented by IARA. Each year, the organization honors an outstanding individual in the remarketing industry who has also made major contributions to his or her community.
