KAR Auction Services Inc. was honored with two prestigious awards from United Way of Central Indiana.
KAR Chairman and CEO Jim Hallett was named Exceptional Executive for 2017, and KAR was recognized with the Spirit United Award, the United Way’s highest corporate honor.
The United Way of Central Indiana hosted its annual meeting on June 6, where supporters and contributors were recognized with individual and company awards.
The Spirit United Award is United Way’s most prestigious company award and was given to four companies that have consistently supported and generously donated to the United Way of Central Indiana. The Exceptional Executive individual award is given to a business leader who has made a significant impact on the community.
Each year, KAR participates in an annual United Way Giving Campaign, during which employees are encouraged to donate. KAR then matches all employee contributions dollar for dollar. Last year, KAR raised more than $240,000 through campaign activities.
