Robert (Bob) W. Nuss of Nuss Truck Group, one of Mack Trucks’ largest dealers in the Midwest, was recently named the 2017 American Truck Dealers (ATD) Truck Dealer of the Year. The award was presented during the 2017 ATD Convention & Expo in New Orleans. ATD is a division of the National Automobile Dealers Association.
“The ATD Dealer of the Year award recognizes Nuss Truck Group’s commitment to helping customers achieve increased uptime and gain a higher return on investment from their Mack trucks,” said Jonathan Randall, senior vice president of North American sales for Mack Trucks. “On behalf of everyone at Mack, we congratulate Bob and his entire staff at their locations across Minnesota and Wisconsin.”
Nuss was selected from five finalists who were nominated by local, state and national trucking association leaders. A panel of professors from Indiana University's Kelley School of Business selected Nuss as the winner based on several criteria, including dealership performance, industry leadership and civic contributions.
Founded in 1959, Nuss Truck Group offers truck sales and service, along with leasing, rentals, financing and full-service body shops. The dealership also maintains a collection of antique Mack trucks, including a recently renovated 1926 Mack AP bus. The family-owned dealership is based in Rochester, with seven locations in Minnesota and one in Eau Claire, Wis.
