The National Automobile Dealers Association is hanging out a "help wanted" sign.
This week it's expected to name a search committee for the hunt to replace its president, Phil Brady, who is leaving NADA after 11 years.
Brady, 61, is leaving to become head of government relations at Phillips 66, which was spun off from ConocoPhillips this year.
Both his father and grandfather were car dealers. But Brady became a lawyer and has spent much of his career in Washington political circles.
Brady came to NADA from a now-defunct industry lobbying group, the American Automobile Manufacturers Association. Prior to that he worked in the administrations of two presidents, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush.
