Park Place Dealerships Appreciates Its Vendor Partners

Thank you to all of our vendor partners who attended the Park Place Partner Appreciation Event at the Texas Tornados game this past weekend. In attendance were our partners from AIMedia, AutoTrader, BlackBook, CARFAX,, Costco, eCarList, WrightIMC, and our content maven, Meryl Evans. “We are grateful for all of your contributions in 2010 to make Park Place Dealerships successful,” said Frank Sobyak, Director of Internet Business Development. “It is your partnership and your expertise that helps put the excellence in Park Place.” Below are some photographs from this memorable family event.


We all had a good time, and perhaps the kids enjoyed it the most!

Meryl Evans creates all of the wonderful copy for our new model overviews, and through her words, she has the unique ability to bring our vehicles to life. Here she poses with her family.

He and his team help direct our website functionality and populate vehicle information across the Internet – in addition to hundreds of other things they do to help make Park Place successful. They have an extremely sharp team at eCarList and we are greatly appreciative of all of their efforts, their loyalty and their commitment to Park Place.
