"His performance at KMA has been nothing short of brilliant. His list of accomplishments is too long for me to mention here. The fact that few know what he has done to bring his company into the 21st Century is a testimony to his desire to let others receive the recognition. Many of the dealers, who made this award possible recognized Mike as a true professional who cares about them, their employees and the future of their business. MRC is proud to add Mike Pietrunti's name to a list of outstanding industry executives who have received this award.”
