BURLINGTON (AP) - Vermont Business Magazine and the Vermont Chamber of Commerce has announced Burlington-based Dealer.com as the winner of the 2013 Deane C. Davis Outstanding Business of the Year Award.
The company, which has about 800 employees, was honored both for its growth since its founding in 1996 and its role as a corporate citizen.
Dealer.com provides website services and inventory control software to about 7,000 car dealerships around the country. The company was sold in March to Dealertrack Technologies of Lake Success, New York, for nearly $1 billion.
The award is named for Deane C. Davis, a former Vermont governor who also was a CEO and board chairman at the Montpelier-based National Life insurance company.
