LAS VEGAS (Feb. 6, 2012) – Terry L. Dotson, president, chairman and CEO of Prestonburg, Ky.-based Worldwide Equipment Enterprises, was named the 2012 Truck Dealer of the Year, a national award co-sponsored by the American Truck Dealers (ATD) and Heavy Duty Trucking magazine.

Dotson received this highest honor out of a select group of dealers from across the country and was recognized at the 49th Annual ATD Convention in Las Vegas on Feb. 4.

The ATD division of the National Automobile Dealers Association is the only national organization representing dealers selling and servicing new medium- and heavy-duty trucks.

Nominees for the ATD/Heavy Duty Trucking Truck Dealer of the Year are evaluated on several categories, including dealership performance, civic contributions and industry leadership. A panel of professors from Indiana University's Kelley School of Business chose the winner and runner-up.

The runner up was John C. Arscott, president and CEO of The Pete Store, LLC, in Baltimore, Md.
