Paul Fiore, senior director of government affairs for the Auto Care Association, will retire at the end of August. Fiore joined the group in 2011 as director of government affairs.

Prior to assuming his current role at the Auto Care Association, Fiore was director of government and business relations for the Tire Industry Association.

"During his time with the Auto Care Association, Fiore assisted in the Right to Repair efforts in Massachusetts early on, eventually gaining momentum across the country and all the way to Capitol Hill," according to Auto Care Association officials. 

"Fiore assisted the association’s government affairs team in significantly growing awareness and respect from legislators and staffers for the auto care industry in general, and the Auto Care Association in particular, culminating with introduction of the Right to Equitable and Professional Auto Industry Repair (REPAIR) Act earlier this year."

Earlier in his 45-year auto industry career, Fiore owned and operated a gas station/auto repair facility in Laurel, Md.

"At the time of the sale of his business, Fiore was servicing the cars of three generations in the neighborhood that they had the privilege of knowing and respecting.  Following his time as a business owner, Fiore spent eight years as an association lobbyist in Annapolis, Md., where he focused on policy issues that included the passage of model legislation protecting the service station dealers in Maryland from predatory pricing.: 

“I’ve been very fortunate spending 45 years in the industry,” said Fiore. 

“The American people have had a friend and advocate in Paul for the past 45 years,” notes Bill Hanvey, president and CEO, Auto Care Association. “His lifelong dedication to serving everyday Americans at the local, state and federal levels has helped to achieve monumental wins for the motoring public and the entire auto care industry.”
