Michael Cardone 2022 Leadership Award Winner Announced

The employee owners of SRC Holdings were recognized for exceptional leadership in the reman community.

The Employee Owners of SRC Holdings Corp. are the recipient of the 2022 Michael Cardone Leadership Award, presented by MERA. The award recognizes individuals and companies who demonstrate exceptional leadership in the remanufacturing community.

MERA President and COO John Chalifoux, and MERA Founding Chairman Michael Cardone Jr., presented the award on Sept. 29, 2022, at the MERA Sustainable Manufacturing Conference in metro Detroit. At the conference, they highlighted the legacy of the Cardone family and recognized the employee owners of SRC for their vision, passion, teamwork, and excellence – the key traits associated with the award.

“Over the years, everyone has worked together to build a great company, and great brands,” said Michael Cardone Jr. via a video address. “You serve your customers with excellence, and SRC is a steward in the communities where you operate.”

SRC Holdings Corp. Founder Jack Stack and Executive Vice President Chad Myers, who also serves as a director of MERA, accepted the award on behalf of all employee owners. “At SRC, we do things differently than most manufacturers,” said Jack Stack. “Our associates take pride in their reputation as businesspeople who understand how they can impact our customers, suppliers, and community. They work hard to continually improve the organization. Thank you to MERA and the Cardone family for this special honor.”

Since 1983, SRC Holdings Corp. says it has been helping OEMs sell parts and whole goods through custom remanufacturing programs for the agricultural, industrial, construction, truck, marine, and automotive markets. Since then, the company adds it has grown beyond remanufacturing to include warehousing, logistics, core management, kitting and packaging, and material salvaging.

In 2017, the MERA Board of Directors announced the formation of the Michael Cardone Leadership Award in honor of three generations in the Cardone family.

  • Eugene Neugebohr, Founder, Auto Electric International (2021)
  • Michael Kitching, President & CEO, GB Remanufacturing (2020)
