“We've been able to provide great careers for our employees and improve the communities where we operate.”
“The most rewarding aspect of my career has been leading the growth of the Findlay Automotive Group for the past 22 years,” nominee Corder said. “We've been able to provide great careers for our employees and improve the communities where we operate.”
Corder is a 1975 graduate of Fort Benton High School in Fort Benton, Montana, where he played football and basketball. He received a B.S. in business management from Montana State University in Bozeman in 1979 and was a member of Sigma Chi fraternity, the Circle K service club and the Interfraternity Council.
After a 14-year career with GMAC (General Motors Acceptance Corporation) following college that took him from Washington to Montana to California to Nevada, Corder joined Findlay Automotive Group in Las Vegas, Nevada, as CFO in 1994 and he was also named COO in 1996. “We had four dealerships and fewer than 200 employees when I joined,” he said. “We have grown to 28 dealerships in five states and employ more than 1,700 people. I have responsibility for all operations of the auto group.”
And Corder has also been successful in guiding local organizations and regional chapters of national charities. He is most proud of his work as president of the board of trustees for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) of Southern Nevada from 2010 to 2013. “During this time, we revamped the board and significantly increased fundraising results,” he said. “The efforts of LLS have resulted in new treatments that have dramatically improved survival rates for those suffering from blood cancer.”
He also serves on the boards of the American Red Cross of Southern Nevada; the Foundation for an Independent Tomorrow (empowers unemployed and underemployed individuals in southern Nevada); Las Vegas Metro Chamber of Commerce; and Safe Nest (helps victims of domestic violence). In addition, he has held leadership positions for the American Heart Association (Heart Walk) and the Southern Nevada Sports Hall of Fame Foundation.
While Corder has received several awards for his civic contributions, he is most proud of earning the Foundation for an Independent Tomorrow's Civitas Laurel award in 2014, presented at the group’s annual Notte di Carnevale gala at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. “The award is presented to one individual per year in recognition of contributions to the Las Vegas community,” he said.
Corder was nominated for the TIME Dealer of the Year award by Andrew James MacKay, executive director of the Nevada Franchised Auto Dealers Association. He and his wife, Marsha, have one child.
