TIA Honors Ohio Tire Dealers' Boehnke with Award
The Tire Industry Association (TIA) recently honored Alex Boehnke, executive director of the Ohio Tire & Automotive Association (OTAA), with its Industry Achievement Award.
"The award is given in recognition of continuous strong leadership in support of industry legislative efforts that positively affect the role of independent tire dealers and the tire industry," according to TIA officials.
In addition to notable legislative achievements, Boehnke and other OTAA officials recently announced a partnership with DRIV Inc., which oversees the Garage Gurus mobile automotive training and support platform, to bring hands-on training and education to association members' locations.
Roy Littlefield IV, director of government affairs for TIA, presented the award to Boehnke on Oct. 31 during a special luncheon involving representatives from various state and regional tire dealer associations.
