Tri-State Enterprises Repeats As AAM Member Of The Year

The AAM Group presented the award at its annual Membership Meeting in Frisco, Texas.

The AAM Group honored Tri-State Enterprises as its 2022 Member of the Year at the organization’s annual Membership Meeting held May 10-12 in Frisco, Texas.  

Each year AAM makes this selection based on five key metrics: Active Participation; Growth as a Percentage; Marketing Participation; Participation in Group Buys; and PRO Rebates Participation. In recognition of its win, Tri-State received a custom trophy and an exclusive painting commissioned from automotive artist Jim Caswell.

“I’m so proud of the Tri-State team for all their hard work and dedication,” said Tri-State Enterprises owner and President Tristan Taylor. “To once again be chosen out of a great lineup of members is truly a privilege and an honor. The AAM Group is a big part of our overall success, along with a host of supplier partners. Our motto is ‘People Driven,’ and we would not be the company we are today without the support of all our partners. Thank you!”

“In a year when so many members contributed so much value, Tri-State demonstrated tremendous support for our supplier partners, edging out many deserving members to earn this year’s coveted award,” AAM President Tim Odom said. “This win puts Tri-State in the rare category of back-to-back Member of the Year honorees.”

The AAM meeting also saw awards given to the winners in each of the aforementioned individual categories. Recipients included Midwest Wheel and Midstates, Inc. (Active Participation); Alamo Auto Supply (Growth as a Percentage); Dix Performance (Marketing Participation); overall winner Tri-State Enterprises (Participation in Group Buys); and AllPro Distributing (PRO Rebates Participation).
