As editor of Aftermarket Intel, I take a lot of notes every day and if I have an idea, I type or write “ask Kim.”
She’s the publisher of Aftermarket Intel and happens to be my wife.
After leaving the disabilities organization she led as chief operating officer, overseeing more than 300 employees, she took a well-deserved break 20 years in the making.
But the break didn’t last long! She started working on Aftermarket Intel a few weeks later. That’s her work ethic.
Back to “ask Kim.” I always make sure I run ideas by her because after running an organization as large as she did, for as long as she did, she’s bound to have ideas I simply didn’t think of.
She honed her skills by negotiating and building relationships with officials at the local, state and national level, fostering a culture of inclusiveness for people with disabilities.
As an advocate, she also helped get millions of dollars more in funding added to the state budget to benefit people with disabilities by appealing to our legislators. And she also oversaw a transportation division, delving into topics like telematics and state regulations to keep vehicles safely on the road.
For Aftermarket Intel, she oversees all aspects of building relationships with our existing and potential clients and sponsors, helping me promote and support the companies and organizations that are vital to the automotive aftermarket.
This year marks the fourth since I founded Aftermarket Intel, and a year into Kim being publisher of Aftermarket Intel, we both thought it was a good time to officially make the announcement.
