Brian Lowes started out washing cars and assisting with sales at a Nissan dealership in Edmonton in 2001 or 2002. Now, as president and general manager of Mercedes-Benz Winnipeg, he's just won one of the Canadian auto industry's most prestigious awards — the Canadian Automobile Dealers Association's Laureate dealer recognition award, in the retail operations category. The association receives hundreds of nominations, but only three people win, one for each category: ambassadorship, business innovation and retail operations.

Time just kind of stopped for a moment — it took a few minutes for it to really sink in."
