Now this is a boss you would want to work for! Howard Cooper of Howard Cooper Import Center in Ann Arbor, has been in the auto business for 47 years, and when he decided that he should retire, he thanked his longtime employees for their loyalty and hard work in very special way!

Howard decided he would show his appreciation to his 89 employees by giving them $1,000 for each year of service.

The Associated Press reported that Cooper sold the dealership in April to Ohio-based Germain Motor Co., and employee retention was part of the deal.

“I wanted to thank my employees and that was a way I could do it,” Cooper said of the surprise checks. “I hope it makes a difference in their lives like they have made in mine.”

The dealership opened in Ann Arbor in 1965, selling Volkswagens. Porsche and Audis were added in 1972, and Hondas came along in 1979.

“The business has been my whole life for 47 years,” Cooper said. “I love what I’ve done and I enjoyed going to work in the morning.”

Now this is what being a boss and businessman is all about. Caring for and appreciating those who helped in your success. Bravo Howard Cooper. Bravo!
