NADA narrows field for next president
The National Automobile Dealers Association is in the homestretch of selecting its next president.
The finalists to replace former chief Phil Brady have been narrowed to a few, and the dealer association's search committee is interviewing the top candidates. Brady left NADA in August to take a job at energy company Phillips 66.
The group of finalists is said to be strong and diverse and includes internal and external candidates. Search committee members have said they want someone who will take the association in a more forceful direction.
The committee aims to bring its selection to the NADA board for approval next month. A new president could be announced by the Detroit auto show in January. NADA wants a new leader on the job before its annual convention in February.
