Learn about vehicle safety inspections at GAAS

Posted on May 12, 2014

The “Braking Bad” team from the University of the Aftermarket Leadership 2.0 professional development program will discuss vehicle safety inspections at the 2014 Global Automotive Aftermarket Symposium (GAAS) in Rosemont, Ill., May 20-21.

The members of team Braking Bad will look at vehicle safety inspections from legislative and market perspectives. They will present ideas on how the aftermarket can capture a larger portion of both unperformed and underperformed vehicle maintenance.

“Braking Bad” was named the best team project at the leadership program.

The winning team members are: Todd Campau, manager, aftermarket products, IHS Automotive; Brian Evanoka, director of U.S. business development, Uni-Select USA Inc.; William D. "Bill" Maggs, president and CEO, National Pronto Association; Bailey Overman, senior analyst of industry analysis, Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association; and Jim Snipes, manager of manufacturing, Standard Motor Products Inc.

“We are honored to welcome the Leadership 2.0 team to GAAS, as they share their creative ideas for helping the aftermarket reach service dealers, and ultimately consumers, with this important safety message,” says Denny Welvaert, GAAS chairman.

Leadership 2.0 is the aftermarket's premier professional development program and a cornerstone of the industry's efforts to develop the next generation of aftermarket leaders. The best team research project, as determined by the class, is presented during GAAS.
