The Pronto Network Executive of the Year award is presented annually to an individual who best demonstrates dedication and commitment to the program group and fellow members.

“We congratulate Kevin on receiving one of The Pronto Network’s highest honors,” Roos said. “Kevin has been a valued partner for many years as well as a great sounding board for me.

Following in his father’s and grandfather’s footsteps into the auto parts business, Van Koevering started his career the day after receiving his driver’s license in 1974, working through high school and college in the family business in any capacity needed.
Today, he leads the ACI Parts Warehouse team and the company’s 34 locations and 600 team members servicing most of Michigan and northern Ohio. Established in 1931, the business has transformed over the years from service only in the 1930s and 1940s, to parts distribution and jobbers in the 1970s and 1980s, to the wholesale service center-driven model it is today.
