GERMANTOWN, Tenn. — The Automotive Distribution Network recently named new members to its National Jobber and Service Dealer Advisory Councils (NJAC and NSDAC), according to Mike Lambert, president of the Network.

“The NJAC and NDSAC meet together along with representatives of the Network Headquarters staff to provide invaluable feedback, so that our group’s programs continue to evolve to meet the needs of our affiliates at the street level,” Lambert said. “The councils represent a cross-section of the Network’s jobbers and service dealers nationwide, from towns big and small, offering unique insight into their local markets.”

Edward Harake, owner of Value Plus Auto Parts Wholesale in Garden City, Mich., joins Romeo Soto of San Antonio-based Poppe Automotive Warehouse as the latest additions to the NJAC. The NSDAC welcomes Kelly Anderson, owner of Grace, Idaho-based APLUS Automotive; Tucson-based Integrity Automotive’s Julee Baxley; Cincinnati-based Protech Autocare owner Bill Baxter; Ron Comfort Jr., owner of C & W Imports in Lancaster, Pa.; and Drellishak’s Service owner Frank Drellishak out of Rocky River, Ohio.

As part of their joint meetings held in different areas of the country, the councils also tour the nearby facilities of a local Network manufacturer partner and discuss the vendor’s products and services with key management.
