Krietz Auto: NIADA Certified Pre-Owned Dealer of the Year

We have some exciting news to share! In case you’ve missed our recent announcements on Facebook, two weeks ago Krietz Auto was honored by the National Independent Automobile Dealers Association during NIADA’s 72nd annual Convention and Expo. Krietz Auto was named NIADA Certified Pre-Owned Dealer of the Year.


The award recognizes the quality of dealership operation, the vehicle certification process, the number of CPO Vehicles sold and the dealer’s commitment to providing a better product and level of service to their customers and the community.


Our Founder, President and CEO, Charlie Krietz accepted the award saying,

 “The dream I had, the vision, going through the recession and the hardships we went through with the family… to be here today, among a lot of great people, is incredible,” he said.


“We’ve had a lot of help… But our hunger and desire to survive, the passion – it was there,” he continued.


Where We Started:


Krietz Auto was founded in 1983 as an Auto Repair shop in New Market Maryland. Krietz Auto Sales was added as the second division after a year of business, with 3-7 cars on the lot.

After five years, Krietz would relocate to downtown Frederick, eventually finding its home at its current location on the corner of 4th and East. This year will mark its 36th year in business and Krietz continues to grow. In the last two years, our staff has expanded from just 12 to more than 40 people dedicated to helping us reach the 40th year milestone.
