The Automotive Parts Services Group (The Group) has made organizational changes to its management team, according to Larry Pavey, CEO of The Group.

The board of directors of The Group has appointed Mike Mohler and Jason Scott to new, expanded leadership positions, effective immediately. Mohler will take on the role of executive vice president and chief purchasing officer while Scott will assume the role of executive vice president and chief strategy officer. 

“The Group continues to grow and expand services across a continually changing market landscape, so it is important that our day-to-day activities are synchronized with established corporate objectives,” said Pavey. “By making these key personnel appointments, the board of directors has sent a clear message of the importance of corporate continuity and alignment across the various disciplines of The Group.”  

“At The Group, we work to optimize relationships and maximize effectiveness throughout the entire supply chain. Key to that effort is the synchronization of corporate strategy and tactical implementation throughout the organization,” said Mohler. “These new structural changes will enable The Group, as well as the talented teams at Federated and The Pronto Network, to work in concert and deliver ever-increasing value to members, supplier partners and customers. I look forward to working closely with Jason to ensure a successful future for all of our stakeholders.”

“The right balance between strategic and tactical execution is critical to the success of any organization. As we build for the future, the new structure of The Group will allow for a heightened focus on both areas,” added Scott. “In our new roles, Mike and I will work with our partners at Federated and The Pronto Network to address each aspect of the business and strategically execute plans that deliver significant value to our members, suppliers and associates.”
