A Great Outlook for 2014
Congratulations to Adam Sturdivant on his selection as NOLN Operator of the Year. This guy is the real deal you’ll want to read about it on page 16.
Also, don’t miss our Vendor Speak article starting on page 20. I think every operator will benefit from the insight and wisdom of the vendors that participated this year.
As I write this, the stock market is at an all time high and the automotive industry is certainly participating in it. The Automotive Aftermarket Product Expo (AAPEX) and The Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association Expo (SEMA) held in Las Vegas November 4-8 were packed with around 130,000 industry professionals keeping both vendors and suppliers very busy. The educational sessions offered were very informative. As the automotive industry evolves the wisdom these sessions provide are well worth the investment. Our NOLN staff was there and you should plan to be there next year. Your next opportunity for great networking and education is March 10-12 at AOCA’s iFlex in New Orleans. Don’t miss it!
Happy New Year! Make this your best year ever!
Keep on lubin’
