Deadline Approaching for Counter Pro of The Year Nominations

Deadline Approaching for Counter Pro of The Year Nominations

Nominations will be accepted through August 16.

There are just a few weeks left for you to nominate someone for the 2024 Counter Professional of the Year award. Counterman has proudly honored the winner of this award every year since 1986. WIX Filters, a long-time sponsor of the award, is once again sponsoring the Counter Professional of the Year for 2024.

The winner receives an all-expenses paid trip to Las Vegas, where he or she will be honored in-person at AAPEX 2024, scheduled for November 5-7. The Counter Professional of the Year will also enjoy a VIP experience at the Babcox Media/WIX Filters recognition program. The winner also will be featured in the cover story in the December 2024 issue of AMN/Counterman.

The Counter Professional of the Year award recognizes America’s most trusted “go-to” men and women behind the parts counter. The 2023 winner was Randy Shambro, an assistant manager at an O’Reilly Auto Parts store in Chicago.

“I wanted to do parts. That was always my main thing,” said Shambro. “I enjoyed it. Back in the day, I had part numbers memorized, so I could pick them up right off the shelf without looking anything up.”

If you know a counter professional with the dedication, passion and knowledge similar to Shambro’s, visit our nomination page and fill out the form. We will continue to accept nominations through August 16.
