Leonard Bus Sales has been named IC Bus’ North American School Bus Dealer of the Year for 2016.

The award focuses on dealership performance as well as industry and community leadership.

“We are proud of Leonard Bus Sales for earning our top award as the 2016 IC Bus Dealer of the Year,” said Trish Reed, vice president and general manager of IC Bus. “The Dealer of the Year award recognizes the energy and commitment of all the dealership’s employees, the commitment to growing their business, and the recognition by customers as the dealership of choice in their market.”

Leonard Bus Sales was founded in 1965 by Gerald and Helen Leonard in Hancock, New York. The third-generation family-owned company, which became an IC Bus dealer in 2001, has grown and expanded to more than 200 employees with facilities across New York state.

The Dealer of the Year honor follows other recent IC Bus recognitions for Leonard Bus Sales: the Pursuit of Excellence and Diamond Premier Dealer awards for 2016.

“Winning the IC Bus Dealer of the Year award is a tremendous honor for our company and our people,” said Mike Leonard, president and CEO of Leonard Bus Sales. “This is a huge win for the entire Leonard Bus Sales team and a reflection of our commitment to making it easy for our school transportation partners by providing them support like our Diamond and Master Certified technicians, proprietary fleet planning tools, and one-stop-shop service and warranty support.”

Leonard Bus Sales operates four full-service facilities in Deposit, Bergen, Rome, and Saratoga Springs, New York. In addition to bus sales and support, the company contributes to a variety of community programs, including the Bountiful Backpack program and the Leonard Family Scholarship, which was established to assist students enrolling in a technical or college education program to help them reach their goals.
