The 2015 winners are:

Ted Hughes, Mahle Aftermarket Inc.

The award was created in 2010, and is administered by the Auto Care Association marketing and communications committee on behalf of the association, with support from the Young Auto Care Network Group (YANG).

“These four shining stars represent the best of young ambition, promise and professionalism in the auto care industry,” says Kathleen Schmatz, CEO and president of the Auto Care Association. “We are honored to recognize them with our Four for the Future Impact Awards, applaud the impact they’ve already made, and look forward to their bright futures in the auto care industry.”

The four winners were selected by the marketing and communications committee during its recent meeting at Fall Leadership Days in Austin, Texas. The recipients will be recognized during the Automotive Warehouse Distributors Association (AWDA) Recognition Luncheon on Nov. 2 in Las Vegas, Nev. They also will be featured in the AAPEX Express and Auto Care Insidermagazine.
