Brand Description Back  
Our business and affairs are managed under the direction of our Board of Directors, which is AutoNation's ultimate decision-making body except with respect to those matters reserved to our stockholders. Our Board's mission is to maximize long-term stockholder value. Our Board establishes our overall corporate policies, selects and evaluates our senior management team, which is charged with the conduct of our business, and acts as an advisor and counselor to senior management. Our Board also reviews AutoNation's business strategy and the performance of management in executing our business strategy and managing our day-to-day operations. Our Directors are informed of our operations during meetings of our Board and our Board's Committees, through reports and analyses presented to our Board and our Board's committees, and by discussions with our management. Significant communications between our Directors and our management also occur apart from meetings of our Board and our Board's committees.
