Auto Care Insider Volume 108 - 2

PRESIDENT'S
MESSAGE
THANK YOU FOR
A GREAT YEAR
EACH year, AAPEX serves as a global
meeting place to connect with valued
suppliers, channel partners and friends,
to celebrate the growth and success
we have had as an industry spanning
more than 100 years. Members of our
industry continue to return to AAPEX
because it allows them to capitalize on
the opportunities that are being created
in the transformation of mobility, safety
and the disruption of new and evolving
business models. This year, I was
floored at the growth we as a global
industry have experienced together.
Technology is transforming our
business and moving at a faster
pace now more than ever. Vehicles
have become more sophisticated
in terms of computerization and
software orientation, electrification,
connectivity, telematics and hybrid
power. Data has evolved from a
"nice to have" to an absolute must
for our entire industry to prosper.
While we celebrate these
advancements and their ability to make
our lives safer and more efficient, there
are challenges we should all think
about. Namely, motorists' freedom of
choice over who has the rights to car
data. Who will be able to repair a car

or sell the proper part if not provided
with the right tools or training to do so?
What will happen to the future of the
auto care industry if these questions
aren't answered? The answer lies in
working together with all stakeholders,
including OEMs, regulators and
policymakers, getting as educated
as possible about telematics and
cybersecurity, standing up for our rights
and informing consumers about theirs.
In this issue of Insider, we'll share
highlights from our most successful
AAPEX yet, and give you an inside
look at our latest publication: 2018
State of Auto Care. This report is
a comprehensive resource of the
industry's key facts, most pressing
issues and how the association is
addressing challenging questions
(many of which were echoed at
AAPEX) from every possible angle.
As the year comes to a close
and we look forward to 2018, I
personally thank you for your support
and believing in the Auto Care
Association to fight for your rights
and keep you ahead of the curve.

BILL HANVEY

Auto Care Association
President and CEO

As the year comes
to a close and we
look forward to
2018, I personally
thank you for
your support.
