Rahim Hassanally Reflects On Life In The Fast Lane

Entrepreneur Rahim Hassanally looks back on personal and professional highlights following more than 20 years in business.

From an invitation to law school to establishing a highly successful automotive dealership while still in his 20s, Rahim Hassanally has now enjoyed more than two decades of success in business, raising tens of thousands of dollars for good causes, such as breast cancer charity Susan G. Komen, in the process. Hassanally looks back on his life in the fast lane.

Growing up, Texas native Hassanally’s family had already established themselves in the thriving Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex hospitality industry. With his parents owning a number of popular hotels in the area, you could be forgiven for assuming that Rahim, too, made his name and fortune in hospitality, but you’d be mistaken. “Getting into the hotel business would’ve been easy for me,” he explains, “but at a very young age, I figured out that it simply wasn’t my cup of tea.”

Instead, aged just 16, Hassanally eagerly accepted an opportunity to embrace a work-study program run by his local high school. “I was able to work and earn money while also completing my studies,” he reveals.

It was in his first job—and the same job facilitated by his high school’s work-study program—that a young Rahim Hassanally would find his feet in the industry in which he would quickly go on to make a name for himself. That industry? “New car sales,” says Hassanally.

Studying each morning until midday before reprising his daily role as a salesman at a local dealership during the afternoons, within two months, Hassanally had exceeded all expectations.

Not only was he excelling in his classroom studies, but the aspiring entrepreneur was selling as many as 30 vehicles a month in his part-time capacity as a new car salesman. “Coaching from a mentor who also worked at the dealership certainly helped!” admits Hassanally.

Fast-forward several years and the high school sophomore had gone on to graduate from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, with a bachelor’s degree in political science while also working at three different dealerships in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

It was around this time that Hassanally made the decision to opt out of an invitation into law school in order to pursue his passion for automotive retailing; something at which he had now very much come to learn that he enjoyed a serious natural talent for.

“By the time I was 24 years old, I’d risen to general sales manager at my current workplace,” reveals Hassanally, “and, less than four years later, I bought my very own dealership.”

It would be the first of many for Rahim Hassanally who, over the next ten years, would go on to establish himself as one of the automotive industry’s leading players, truly living life in the fast lane.

“Looking back, I’ve always been extremely driven,” he adds, wrapping up, “and when I set my mind to something, I won’t give up until I’ve achieved it.”

Rahim Hassanally Counts Down to Next Month’s Worldwide Breast Cancer Awareness Initiative

Entrepreneur, philanthropist, and breast cancer awareness advocate Rahim Hassanally looks towards October, observed as Breast Cancer Awareness Month around the world.

Marking National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in the United States and Breast Cancer Awareness Month elsewhere around the world, October plays host to an international effort to promote breast cancer awareness and to raise vital funds for research into the disease, heavily focused on prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and finding a cure for breast cancer. An entrepreneur, philanthropist, and breast cancer awareness advocate from Texas and currently based in California, Rahim Hassanally reveals more about the upcoming global initiative.

“Next month marks annual Breast Cancer Awareness Month,” explains Hassanally, “a worldwide initiative designed to raise awareness and funds for vital research into breast cancer causes, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and finding a cure for the disease.”

A global public health initiative, in the United States, the event is known as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Elsewhere, the initiative is marked simply as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, as well as, for example, Brustkrebs-Bewusstseinsmonat in Germany and Mes de Sensibilización Sobre el Cáncer de Mama in many Spanish-speaking nations.

In the United States, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is today led by a number of major breast cancer charities, having been initially established in the 1980s by the American Cancer Society. “In Canada, meanwhile, the initiative is led by the Canadian Cancer Society and the Breast Cancer Society of Canada,” reveals Hassanally. “Elsewhere around the world, Breast Cancer Network Australia and Cancer Australia lead the charge ‘Down Under,’ while Breast Cancer Now heads up the cause in the United Kingdom,” he adds.

Back in the United States, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, in addition to promoting awareness and backing vital research into finding a cure, also centers around educating the public, particularly regarding the importance of breast cancer screening and early detection of the disease, according to Rahim Hassanally.

One of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month’s main goals, he further explains, is to promote the continued importance of mammography. “This has been among the main focuses of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month since its inception in 1985,” reveals Hassanally, “and continues to remain central to the initiative’s growing list of goals and achievements.”

Global Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2019 begins on Tuesday, October 1st, and concludes at the end of the month.

“For more information about National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in the United States, visit the National Breast Cancer Foundation website or search National Breast Cancer Awareness Month,” adds Hassanally, wrapping up.

Rahim Hassanally Revisits Disaster Relief Contributions

Entrepreneur Rahim Hassanally looks back on local, regional, and international aid donations and other charitable contributions.

A successful businessman, entrepreneur, and philanthropist from Texas, and currently based in California, Rahim Hassanally has backed a number of high-profile aid efforts from North America to the Philippines in recent years. Donating generously in the aftermath of disasters including Typhoon Haiyan and last year’s devastating California wildfires, Hassanally reveals more about his charitable efforts.

“During last year’s devastating California wildfires, more than 8,500 separate fires destroyed a total area covering over 1.8 million acres,” reveals Hassanally.

The deadliest and most destructive wildfire season on record in California, as the disaster worsened, Hassanally promptly sought to donate generously to rescue and aid efforts.

“In addition to raising and donating much-needed funds to aid and rescue efforts here in California, I further researched and donated a large quantity of vital supplies to the community during and in the wake of the fires,” adds the humble local businessman.

Overseas, Hassanally has contributed toward aid efforts in the aftermath of deadly natural disasters including Typhoon Haiyan which hit the Philippines in 2013. “After seeing the devastation caused, I remember thinking to myself, ‘I need to take action,'” he reveals. The businessman and entrepreneur subsequently helped to raise more than $6,000 for the cause in just a matter of weeks.

Rahim Hassanally is also a long-standing advocate for breast cancer awareness, raising thousands of dollars for charities including Susan G. Komen, the largest breast cancer organization in the United States.

In a story covered by Solano County’s Daily Republic, part of McNaughton Newspapers, a local family-owned media company, Hassanally and colleagues successfully raised $10,000 for the breast cancer charity’s California chapter. “Susan G. Komen Northern & Central California serves approximately 30 counties across central and northernmost parts of the state,” explains Hassanally, “providing grants to community organizations and the region’s hospitals to ensure ongoing cancer screening, treatment programs, breast health education, and more.”

To date, his local Susan G. Komen chapter has contributed more than $20 million to such causes, according to the entrepreneur and philanthropist.

Elsewhere, Rahim Hassanally is also a keen supporter of his local air force base and several of the area’s homeless shelters.

“Locally, nationally, or internationally,” he adds, wrapping up, “I believe in supporting worthwhile causes wherever possible in an effort to make the world a better, healthier, and brighter place for everyone.”

Rahim Hassanally Reveals Best Ways to Support Local Homeless Shelters

Entrepreneur and philanthropist Rahim Hassanally offers a number of examples of donations most often welcomed by homeless charities and shelters in the community.

Beyond cash donations, many local homeless shelters are in desperate need of a variety of supplies and other help. From food and personal care items to clothing, toys, and games, automotive industry entrepreneur and philanthropist Rahim Hassanally shares a closer look at several ways in which members of the community can support their local homeless shelters.

“First and foremost, most shelters are in regular need of nonperishable food items,” explains Hassanally, a seasoned automotive industry entrepreneur and keen philanthropist. Canned vegetables, he says, with clearly printed expiration dates, are a good example of the type of nonperishable food items sought by many homeless shelters.

“Personal care items are important, too,” adds Hassanally. Such items, he reveals, include toothbrushes, toothpaste, dental floss, deodorant, soap or shower gel, feminine hygiene products, and baby wipes, as well as toilet paper, diapers, and items such as reading glasses.

Also in demand is clothing, according to Hassanally. “Quality clothing, including scarves and gloves, is generally very welcome,” explains the multi-award-winning entrepreneur, “as is business clothing which those at the shelter can wear to job interviews.”

A committed philanthropist and long-standing advocate for breast cancer awareness, Rahim Hassanally has previously raised more than $10,000 for his local Susan G. Komen chapter, Susan G. Komen Northern & Central California. Hassanally is also a proud supporter of a number of his local homeless charities and shelters, as well as the area’s air force base. “I’ve also raised funds for local, national, and international aid efforts,” he adds, “including following last year’s devastating California wildfires, and in the aftermath of deadly natural disasters elsewhere around the world.”

Beyond food, personal care items, and clothing, homeless children in local shelters are, says Hassanally, universally grateful for toys and games. “Children in shelters typically have very few personal possessions,” he explains, “so toys and games are always welcomed.”

Adult-only shelters, too, are often appreciative of donated board games, according to the automotive industry entrepreneur.

Equally important to homeless shelters, and something which money can’t buy, is time, says Hassanally. “Even if someone doesn’t have money or spare items to donate, volunteering time is often invaluable to local homeless shelters,” he adds, wrapping up, “from helping to coordinate fundraising efforts to preparing meals or collecting and sorting donated items.”

Rahim Hassanally Shares Brief History of National Association of Minority Automobile Dealers

Automotive industry entrepreneur Rahim Hassanally takes a brief look at the history of NAMAD as the advocacy organization approaches its 40th year in operation.

Established in 1980, the National Association of Minority Automobile Dealers is America’s leading organization centered around advocacy for diversity and inclusion across all aspects of the nation’s automotive sector. Collaborating with manufacturers and policy-makers alike to establish meaningful, equitable, and sustainable business protocols for minority entrepreneurs and employees within America’s automotive industry, veteran NAMAD member Rahim Hassanally provides a closer look at the organization’s background.

“Collaborating with local, regional, and national policy-makers and domestic and international manufacturers, the National Association of Minority Automobile Dealers has been dedicated to establishing business protocols which are meaningful, equitable, and sustainable for America’s minority automotive industry entrepreneurs and employees since 1980,” explains Hassanally, himself a seasoned and well-respected automotive industry entrepreneur based between Texas and California.

The automotive industry has, he says, grown to become one of the single most important industries in the United States. “A recent report carried out by the Center for Automotive Research credits America’s automotive sector with contributing up to 3.5 percent of the nation’s overall GDP annually,” reveals Hassanally.

America’s automotive industry, he further goes on to explain, directly employs more than 1.7 million individuals across engineering, design, manufacturing, and the supply of components and parts to assemble, retail, and subsequently service new motor vehicles. “Unfortunately, however,” adds Hassanally, “minority representation in the industry has not maintained pace with changes in national demographics and consumer purchasing trends.”

This, the automotive industry veteran believes, applies particularly to the number of minority-owned dealerships currently operating in the United States. “Accordingly, the National Association of Minority Automobile Dealers was established—and continues to thrive in its role—as a collaborator and advocate focused on sustainable business protocols tailored toward minority automotive industry entrepreneurs and staff throughout America,” reveals Hassanally.

“It’s an important consideration,” he continues, “when accounting for the U.S. Census Bureau’s recent projection that, by 2043, the nation’s current majority demographic will, in fact, become the minority population.”

Elsewhere, research carried out by NAMAD indicates that today, around 30 percent of all new vehicle purchases in the U.S. are made by minorities. “Despite this,” adds Hassanally, “only five percent of the nation’s automotive dealerships are minority-owned.”

The growth of minority-owned dealerships, suggests automotive industry expert Rahim Hassanally, has still yet to return to the rates of growth seen in the early and mid-2000s, prior to the global economic crisis.

“Much work still remains to drive diversity and inclusion higher across the automotive industry in America today,” he adds, wrapping up, “and, almost four decades on, NAMAD continues to take a vital leadership role in this ongoing process.”

Rahim Hassanally Continues Breast Cancer Awareness Advocacy Efforts

Entrepreneur and philanthropist Rahim Hassanally reveals more about his breast cancer awareness advocacy efforts and fundraising.

A keen advocate for breast cancer awareness, Rahim Hassanally has spoken at length about his support for charities including Susan G. Komen and initiatives such as U.S. National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and its international counterparts. Originally from Texas and currently based in California, the entrepreneur and family man reveals more about his ongoing breast cancer awareness advocacy efforts and charity work.

“Having witnessed the effects of breast cancer first hand, I’m committed to promoting continued awareness of the disease, and to fundraising for organizations such as Susan G. Komen, and, in particular, my local, Sacramento Valley chapter of the leading breast cancer charity,” Hassanally explains.

Often referred to simply as Komen, Susan G. Komen is the largest and best-funded breast cancer charity in the United States. The Sacramento chapter of the organization-Susan G. Komen Northern & Central California-serves a total of almost 30 counties across central and northernmost parts of the state. “To date, the chapter has contributed more than $20 million to breast cancer charities in the region,” reveals Rahim Hassanally.

Rahim Hassanally and fellow automotive industry colleagues have previously donated more than $10,000 to the Sacramento Valley chapter of Susan G. Komen. In a gesture covered by Solano County’s Daily Republic, Hassanally and colleagues proudly presented a $10,000 check to Kelly MacMillan of Susan G. Komen Northern & Central California.

Rahim Hassanally has also shown great support for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. “Promoted each October, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is held annually to raise both awareness and funds for vital research into breast cancer causes, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and a cure for the disease,” he explains.

“It’s vital,” suggests the philanthropist and entrepreneur, “that we continue to raise awareness about events such as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in the United States, as well as corresponding overseas initiatives held elsewhere around the world.”

“National Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2019 begins,” adds Hassanally, “on October 1st, and concludes at the end of the month.”

Elsewhere, Rahim Hassanally is a keen supporter of several other local charities, nonprofit organizations, and good causes. “These include,” he adds, wrapping up, “my local air force base, as well as a number of local homeless charities and shelters.”

Rahim Hassanally - Second Decade With Namad

Rahim Hassanally Marks Start of Second Decade With Namad

Entrepreneur, businessman, and philanthropist Rahim Hassanally celebrates more than ten years with NAMAD and offers a closer look at the organization.

 

rahim hassanallyAfter more than ten years of NAMAD membership, Rahim Hassanally remains a leading advocate for the organization’s work and its place within America’s booming automotive industry. Presided over by Damon Lester since 2002, Hassanally shares a closer look at the nationwide network of automotive industry professionals.

 

“I first became involved with NAMAD more than a decade ago,” he explains, “and continue to champion the benefits of being a part of a nationwide network of professionals, each of whom is dedicated to diversity inclusion across every aspect of America’s automotive industry.”

 

Headquartered in Largo, Maryland, the National Association of Minority Auto Dealers was founded in 1980. “Growing membership, year on year, has allowed the organization to flourish,” says Hassanally.

 

NAMAD’s mission statement centers around its commitment to increasing opportunities for ethnic minorities in all aspects of the automotive industry, according to Hassanally. “NAMAD seeks,” he explains, “to ensure the presence of a representative and a meaningful number of minority entrepreneurs and employees in the retail sales, supplier, and service sectors, as well as among the manufacturing ranks.”

 

“The organization,” he continues, “is committed to working closely with nameplate manufacturers to achieve sound business arrangements intended to create reciprocal trading partnerships.”

 

Such partnerships have, according to NAMAD, uncovered not only new markets, but also new ideas, new talent, and new capital. “All of this is to the benefit of not just automobile manufacturers and entrepreneurs,” explains Hassanally, “but consumers, too.”

 

NAMAD membership is on an annual basis. The organization also hosts a popular annual conference. The 2019 NAMAD Annual Membership Meeting was held last month at Fontainebleau Miami Beach. Designed in the 1950s, the buzzy, iconic hotel, situated on Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, is less than 12 miles from Miami International Airport, ideal for attendees flying in from across the U.S. for the conference.

 

Fontainebleau Miami Beach boasts a number of upscale dining options, including a steakhouse and an Italian eatery, a spa with ocean views, three elegant ballrooms, plus trendy bars and lively nightclubs.

 

A keen philanthropist, NAMAD member Rahim Hassanally has raised tens of thousands of dollars for charities such as Susan G. Komen in recent years. The automotive industry professional, entrepreneur and family man has also raised further funds for local, national, and international disaster relief efforts.

 

In addition to being a long-standing member of NAMAD, NADA Dealer Academy graduate Hassanally is also involved with the American International Automobile Dealers Association and is a Governor of California appointed Department of Motor Vehicles New Motor Vehicle Board member.

 

“I’m proud,” adds the entrepreneur, wrapping up, “to be in a position whereby I’m able to give something back to the industry and to support worthwhile nonprofit organizations and other good causes both locally and across the U.S. and overseas.”

Rahim Hassanally Outlines More than a Decade of Personal and Professional Accolades

Texas native and California resident Rahim Hassanally reflects on more than a decade of success in the automotive industry.

From ‘Urban Dealer of the Year’ courtesy of the Urban Wheel Awards to a decade of NAMAD membership, automotive sector professional Rahim Hassanally looks back on more than ten years of industry accolades, award wins, and more.

“From making the Automotive News ‘Top 40 Under 40’ list to being named Urban Dealer of the Year, I’ve enjoyed a number of fantastic and much-cherished accolades during my career,” explains Hassanally, a Governor of California appointed Department of Motor Vehicles New Motor Vehicle Board member. Rahim Hassanally is also a board member of the American International Automobile Dealers Association and a National Association of Minority Automobile Dealers member.

The nonprofit organization-known widely as NAMAD-represents ethnic minority automobile dealers across America. “I’ve recently celebrated a decade of NAMAD membership, in fact,” Rahim Hassanally reveals. “NAMAD membership has much to offer,” he continues, “including access to a nationwide network of professionals, each dedicated to diversity inclusion across every aspect of America’s automotive industry.”

Hassanally has previously made the Automotive News ‘Top 40 Under 40’ list and was recognized as the 18th annual Urban Wheel Awards ‘Urban Dealer of the Year.’

Celebrating diversity within the U.S. automotive industry, the Urban Wheel Awards presents successful businesses and individuals with awards including ‘Urban Wheel Pioneer’ and ‘Company of the Year.’

“The 18th annual awards took place at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit,” explains Hassanally, who’s also a National Automobile Dealers Association Academy graduate, “where I was one of a trio of individuals who scooped an ‘Urban Dealer of the Year’ award.”

Rahim Hassanally and industry colleagues have also raised thousands of dollars for charities including the Sacramento Valley chapter of leading breast cancer charity Susan G. Komen, plus disaster relief efforts, including in light of last year’s devastating California wildfires and the equally devastating Typhoon Haiyan which hit the Philippines several years ago. “After seeing the devastation, I remember thinking to myself, ‘We need to take action,'” Rahim Hassanally recalls.

He and fellow automotive industry colleagues quickly rallied support for relief efforts, raising upwards of $5,000 in a little over two weeks. “The fundraising total,” he adds, “later rose by a further 20 percent or more.”

Hassanally and his team’s most recent contribution to breast cancer charity Susan G. Komen, meanwhile, topped $10,000. Close to his home in California, Rahim Hassanally is also a keen supporter of his local air force base. “I also make an effort to contribute wherever possible,” he adds, wrapping up, “to many of the nearby homeless shelters.”

Rahim Hassanally Highlights Upcoming National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Entrepreneur and philanthropist Rahim Hassanally looks toward this year’s upcoming National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Promoted each October, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is held annually across the United States to raise both awareness and funds for vital research into breast cancer causes, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and a cure for the disease. Also observed internationally as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, businessman, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and breast cancer awareness advocate Rahim Hassanally provides insight into the global public health initiative.

 

“With only around eight weeks to go, it’s important that we continue to raise awareness about National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in the United States,” says Hassanally, “as well as corresponding overseas initiatives held elsewhere around the world.”

 

These include the Canadian Cancer Society’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Breast Cancer Society of Canada’s Dress for the Cause, Breast Cancer Network Australia and Cancer Australia’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and, in the United Kingdom, Wear it Pink, the flagship fundraising event of Breast Cancer Now.

 

In the United States, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an annual health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities, originally established in 1985 by the American Cancer Society. “National Breast Cancer Awareness Month represents an annual campaign intended to educate the public, particularly surrounding the importance of breast cancer screening and early detection,” Hassanally explains.

 

“Since its inception,” he continues, “among the main goals of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month has been to promote the importance of mammography.”

 

Even today, almost 35 years on, mammography remains the single most effective tool in the fight against breast cancer according to Rahim Hassanally, both in the United States and internationally.

 

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is marked largely by various one, two, and three-day-long sponsored walks across North America, both in the U.S. and Canada. “There’s also the National Race for the Cure,” adds Hassanally, “first held in Dallas, Texas, more than three decades ago.”

 

While the first National Race for the Cure event attracted around 800 participants, millions now take part each year in more than 100 U.S. cities nationwide, all dedicated to promoting awareness and raising funds to help fight breast cancer.

 

“Elsewhere, thousands of further, independent fundraising events and awareness initiatives are held and hosted by the medical professional, breast cancer awareness advocates, and more, both here in the U.S. and around the world,” reveals Hassanally.

 

“Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2019 begins,” he adds, wrapping up, “on October 1st, and concludes at the end of the month.”
