The Automotive Distribution Network (The Network) hosted a breakfast for its Auto Pride division during Automotive Aftermarket Industry Week in Las Vegas.

“It was an honor for me to meet the Auto Pride members for the first time,” said Jeff Hobson, the newly appointed vice president of product for The Network. “Being able to explain our group’s developing product vision for the future to the Auto Pride division is a vital part of our overall product initiative and our group’s success.”

During the Oct. 31 event, Tom Frey, vice president of IT for The Network, updated the members on the latest enhancements to the group’s IT portfolio, including their proprietary POS system.

Cora Roark, director of Auto Pride, said The Network is excited about furthering the expansion of Auto Pride. “The Network is at the forefront of the industry regarding member expansion,” she said. “It is always a great opportunity when our members can convene in one location to share ideas and discuss how we further the success of the Auto Pride division.”
