Locator UpFront's 2013 Boss Of The Year
Jim Butler has been in the auto recycling industry for decades. He is co-owner of Butler’s Auto Recycling, Inc. in Pensacola, Fla. He’s been an ARA regional director, FADRA president (twice) a two-time Locator Most Influential and he worked with the Florida DEP to start the state’s prestigious Green Yards program. Now, he’s Locator UpFront’s 2013 Boss of the Year.


Locator UpFront's 2015 Boss of the Year
There’s nowhere to go but up for Omar Wahid. He is the president of Gray & White Used Parts Company, based in Carrollton, Ga., which just opened its fourth location in June 2015. In less than 20 years the company has quadrupled in size at a steady pace. His employees claim that success is because of how Omar runs the business.

Alvin Collier

Locator UpFront 2012 Boss Of The Year
When Alvin “Flash” Collier bought Alvin’s Auto Recycling in 1985 he only had two things to his name, a Chevrolet El Camino and his last paycheck. But, that didn’t stop him from fulfilling his dream to run his own auto recycling facility, something he wanted since his childhood.


Locator UpFront’s 2014 Boss Of The Year
Gary Coln always strives to learn more. Whether it’s figuring out how to improve sales numbers, employee relations or quality control at his Savannah, Tenn.-business, Raceway Auto & Truck Parts, Gary is never satisfied to just sit still. That’s one reason why he is the Locator UpFront’s 2014 Boss of the Year.


Locator UpFront's 2010 Boss Of The Year
When John J.C. Cahill saw his boss and mentor Bill Stevens on the cover of the Locator UpFront September / October 2005 issue as 2005 boss of the year, he knew he wanted to achieve the same distinction as Stevens.
