The Automotive Distribution Network recently joined the University of the Aftermarket Foundation as a lifetime trustee.
“Finding skilled workers to fill the technician shortage can seem overwhelming, and when you add in the parts counter, the people who answer phones, warehouse personnel, IT staff, marketing and sales, and so on, it can seem impossible,” said Mike Lambert, president of the Network. “We want to support the foundation’s efforts to get the word out that our industry has good jobs available, and not just those turning a wrench, but careers in all aspects of the business for those who are willing to learn.”
The Network will take an active role on the University of the Aftermarket Foundation Board of Trustees. David Segal, president of New Hampshire-based Automotive Supply Associates (ASA) will serve as the Network’s representative on the board. Segal, who helped spearhead the Network’s donation, is a former chairman of the Automotive Wholesale Distributors Association (AWDA).
