Award Program

The Jack Tracey Pinnacle Award

The National Automotive Finance Association is proud to recognize professionals that have made remarkable contributions to the benefit of the non-prime auto finance industry.

The Jack Tracey Pinnacle Award is named in honor of one of the organization's early supporters and its first and long-serving executive director. Jack will always be remembered as a leader and fierce advocate for the non-prime automotive lending industry. 

The Jack Tracey Pinnacle Award recognizes a professional at a member organization with enduring service to the non-prime auto finance industry.

Individuals nominated for this award should have an extensive record of service to a NAF Association member company that is substantive and encompasses a productive, voluntary effort exceeding the duties of regular employment. A nominee’s service record will reflect having produced a positive impact beyond an individual company.

Submissions may include self-nominations. The Awards Committee will review applications and recommend the recipient to the full NAF Association Board of Directors.

The award winner will be announced and recognized at the 2024 Non-Prime Auto Financing Conference this June 5-7 in Fort Worth, Texas.
