The conference is scheduled for April 11-12 in Chicago.

Philip (Phil) Daniele, AutoZone’s executive vice president of merchandising, supply chain, marketing, and e-commerce, will be the keynote speaker for the 2023 AASA Vision Conference in Chicago.

Daniele will speak during the supplier-only Customer Spotlight segment and will cover this transformative time in the aftermarket, which requires suppliers and customers to collaborate closely. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear responses to questions asked of an industry leader during the post-presentation Q&A session. 

“At AutoZone, our focus is on providing WOW! customer service while growing both our retail and commercial businesses,” said Daniele said. “Now more than ever, we need to collaborate to address the challenges we all face, short and long-term. I look forward to sharing my perspectives, listening, and learning from other industry leaders at the upcoming AASA Vision Conference.”

“We are extremely excited to have Phil give our customer keynote at the 2023 AASA Vision Conference,” said Paul McCarthy, president and CEO at AASA. “These conversations at Vision between supplier leaders and key customers are vital and contribute to the collaboration and problem-solving that help suppliers and channel partners succeed together. Phil’s presentation will be a highlight of this year’s great event.” 

Daniele joined AutoZone in 1993 as a manager in training and grew his career within the company while serving in numerous capacities as a store manager, district manager, regional manager and divisional vice president before being promoted to vice president, merchandising in 2008. He has continued to progress throughout various levels of the organization, holding leadership roles in merchandising, global sourcing, commercial and store operations.
