Auto Care & IAAF agree new partnership

Date: Thursday 09 November 2023

Auto Care Association and IAAF have agreed a new partnership, which will see the two associations work closer together in the coming months and years.

 Meeting at automotive expo AAPEX, held recently in Las Vegas, the two federations – IAAF represented by Chief Executive Mark Field and Immediate Past President Richard Welland and Auto Care represented by president and CEO Bill Hanvey – agreed to share best practice and consult more widely on common aims affecting their sectors and memberships.

The Auto Care Association is the voice of the $470billion+ United States auto care industry. It provides advocacy, educational, networking, technology, market intelligence and communications resources to serve the collective interests of its members. The association serves the entire supply chain of the automotive aftermarket.

Bill Hanvey, president and CEO of Auto Care Association, said: “I am looking forward to increased collaboration with IAAF and its members. Our two federations are on similar journeys and share many common goals, particularly around Right to Repair and ensuring choice for millions of motorists globally.”

Mark Field, IAAF Chief Executive, added: “A huge thank you to Bill and the Auto Care team for hosting IAAF at AAPEX. Our federations and aftermarkets face very similar challenges and opportunities and are united in our drive to ensure competitive choice and value for members and motorists. It’s also essential, as a growing Federation, that IAAF continues to develop and look at new practices in relation to member engagement and lobbying. Our new partnership with Auto Care will help strengthen IAAF’s offering to members.”
