“I am honored to again receive such esteemed recognition on behalf of the hard work of the VisionIT team,” said Segura. “Awards like these serve as additional motivation to strive for continued excellence in our industry and community.”
The evening’s gala was hosted by the voice of the Detroit Pistons and Detroit-radio veteran John Mason. Detroit City Council President Ken Cockrel was also on hand and addressed the crowd stressing the importance of working together to build a better Detroit.
Also receiving an award was Irma Elder owner of Elder Automotive Group and the first woman to own a Ford dealership.
