HDA Truck Pride‘s Tina Alread has been recognized as an Aftermarket Industry Leader by Northwood University, in partnership with the Auto Care Association, AWDA, and MEMA, for her unwavering dedication to aftermarket education.
HDA Truck Pride says the Aftermarket Industry Leader award is reserved for industry leaders whose significant contributions have shaped this industry and provided a strong educational platform for future leaders to gain a foothold. Alread has passionately embodied these ideals for nearly three decades.

Alread is on the Membership Committee of Women in Auto Care, involved in Women in Trucking, on the ACA Blue Ribbon Committee, a part of GenNext HD, and a Member of TMC, HDA Truck Pride says.
“Northwood chose the perfect honoree in Tina. She understands the industry, she knows the customers, and she can roll up her sleeves and teach an installation clinic,” says Don Reimondo, president at HDA Truck Pride. “In addition to these attributes, she is a role model for future leaders because she is financially astute, and familiar with innovations impacting our industry over the coming years. She epitomizes the aspirations for this prestigious award.”
