Editorial: Power rides into auto history
We’ll take a few words to recognize J.D. “Dave” Power, this year’s Business Times Hall of Fame inductee, for yet another honor.
The man who masterminded the ubiquitous brass, black and glass awards is picking up some additional hardware this week in Detroit.
That’s because he’s being inducted this year into the Automotive Hall of Fame in Dearborn, Michigan. Also in this year’s class are Keith Crain, chairman of Crain Communications, which publishes Automotive News; Ferdinand Piech, chairman of the supervisory board of Volkswagen Group and a member of the Porsche family; and the late Alex Tremulis, a legendary car designer who worked at Cord Automobile, Deusenberg and General Motors. He died in Ventura in 1991.
With this honor, Power is joining another elite group. Congratulations to the entire Power family and the team at J.D. Power & Associates, which continues to do great work under the McGraw-Hill Financial banner.
