GERMANTOWN, Tenn. – The Automotive Distribution Network’s recent fall membership meeting in Boston attracted record attendance, including several manufacturer partners and executives from warehouse distributors representing the Parts Plus, Parts Plus Mexico, IAPA and Auto Pride brands, according to Mike Lambert, president of the Network.

“The exceptional turnout for this event enabled the majority of the group’s membership to effectively meet with the Network’s valued manufacturer partners to discuss promotional opportunities and further enhance their relationship,” Lambert said. “Network committee members also evaluated the group’s 2014 goals and results, and helped chart our future direction through brainstorming sessions.”

During the gathering, the Network also reviewed the association’s latest marketing and product initiatives, while the NIS (Network Information Services) team conducted workshops detailing the latest IT enhancements. Jonathan Carey, the managing director at BB&T Capital Markets who leads the firm’s automotive aftermarket investment banking practice, was on hand to provide insight into the financial future of the industry.
