The 11th annual Boca Raton Concours d’Elegance, presented by Mercedes-Benz and AutoNation, will be honoring Hyundai USA CEO Dave Zuchowski for decades of work in the auto industry, not just in Hyundai but during his years at Ford and Lincoln-Mercury too.

Zuchowski has played an integral part in Hyundai’s flourishing as a leading automaker in the USA in recent years. “In 2010, Zuchowski led Hyundai to be the fastest growing automobile manufacturer in the United States,” explained event founder, Rick Case. “He is one of the great leaders in the automotive industry, respected by the dealers as one of the best factory guys in the business, and has been responsible for Hyundai’s continued growth and success in the US for the past 10 years.”

The ceremony will take place on February 11th during a Grand Gala Dinner, Auction, and Show starring Jeff Foxworthy.

The Boca Raton Concours d’Elegance is known for being one of the biggest Concours festivals in the world, with its entire proceeds going to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County. It’s operated every year by over 300 volunteers who make the event an unforgettable one. Next year’s festival in February will take place from the 10th to the 12th, featuring parties, gourmet tastings, car shows, auctions, performances, and judging panels.
