SACRAMENTO, Calif. – CAWA – Representing automotive aftermarket parts manufacturers, jobbers, warehouse distributors and retailers in California, Nevada, and Arizona — will welcome John Passante as its 2014 Annual Dinner Meeting keynote speaker on Sunday, Nov. 2, at the Paris Hotel as a “kick-off” to Industry Week. Passante’s keynote speech will be titled, “The Power of the Human Side of Today’s Automotive Aftermarket.”
Author of “The Human Side, Human Touch Leadership in a High Tech World,” Passante will stress to CAWA members and friends in attendance that their employees are their secret weapon; their employees are indeed their brand and reputation; and employees give their companies credibility. “Better trained and motivated employees equal more profit; the employees will sell the company’s value proposition,” Passante believes.
CAW also will install its 2015 officers for its board of directors at the annual dinner meeting. Ward Myers of WORLDPAC steps into the chairman role; Greg Livingston of All Trade Tools as vice chair; Michael Antonelli of Vantage Marketing Global Inc. as treasurer; Jack Gosnell of Next Level Parts Inc. as secretary and Ron Aparicio of Motul USA Inc. as immediate past chair.
All proceeds from the annual dinner, which is sponsored by Motorcar Parts of America, will go to the CAWA Scholarship Fund. For more information, email[email protected] or call 800-332-2292, ext. 1.
