Award recognizes remarketing leader for outstanding community service
ATLANTA, Nov. 17, 2017 — Cox Automotive presented its 2017 Community Impact Award to Heather Pullen, national remarketing manager, Porsche Cars North America, at the 2017 National Remarketing Conference/NAAA Convention during an awards luncheon on November 16.
Presented by Grace Huang, president of Cox Automotive Inventory Solutions, this award, sponsored by Manheim, a Cox Automotive brand, recognizes a remarketing industry leader for their outstanding contributions to the community and the innovative ways they collaborate with community partners to help further their missions.
“Heather’s enthusiasm and passion for community service exemplifies the spirit of the Cox Automotive Community Impact Award,” said Huang. “Community service is a guiding value for how Cox Automotive operates its businesses, and we congratulate Heather on her inspirational work.”
While Pullen is passionate about performance cars and has worked at Porsche for more than six years, her real passion starts with horses. She is an avid polo player, and she and her husband, Randy Pullen, formed a charity in 2016 named Pony Up For A Cause. This charity was designed to give back to local charities in the Atlanta area by raising money through an annual polo event produced by Pony Up For A Cause.
Pony Up For A Cause partners with Atlanta Ronald McDonald House (ARMHC) to support its mission in the local community. ARMHC provides temporary housing and support services to families who travel far from home to get treatment for their children facing a medical crisis. Since its inception, Pony Up For A Cause has raised more than $30,000 for ARMHC.
For her leadership and commitment to making a difference through community service, Pullen’s charity Pony Up For A Cause will receive a $10,000 donation from Cox Automotive to further its work in the Atlanta area.
“Giving back to the community is simply part of the culture at Cox Automotive,” said Pullen. “It is a sincere honor to be recognized, and I am humbled by the generosity of Cox Automotive.”
