Some of the North American aftermarket’s top business consultants have banded together to create awareness about business development and advance industry professionalism.
The newly formed Coalition of Automotive Management Professionals (CAMP) said it plans to serve the independent sector of the automotive aftermarket by advocating for the kind of best practices that will elevate the image of the industry.
“Our industry is at a crossroad,” said Cecil Bullard of the Institute for Automotive Business Excellence. “We all have an obligation to do everything we can to assist our clients in their challenge to be professional and profitable.”
CAMP has endorsed a code of ethics that revolves around business ethics, collaboration, objectivity, contributions, financial, and methodology.
The group’s members recognize the opportunity to positively make a difference and create awareness.
“From the beginning, our members have been focused on coming together to help those in our industry advance their knowledge, improve work-life balance and increase profitability,” said Rena Rennebohm of Empowered Advisor.
Through the coalition, CAMP supports member contributions to create a greater sense of unity. Cutting edge and relevant education will be promoted with the hope of welcoming new ideas and methods through objectivity. CAMP members work together to address and understand the needs of the industry and embrace technology as a strategy for achieving a competitive advantage and success.
“As iron sharpens iron, I strongly believe our industry can only become stronger as we unify management professionals,” said shop owner coach Vic Tarasik.
