MiX Executive Program Gives Leaders the Opportunity to Learn from the Aftermarket’s Next Generation

Date: May 16, 2019
The AASA Modern Industry eXpertise (MiX) council continues to grow and focus on its reverse mentoring model. As part of this focus, MiX has launched an Executive Partnership Program. At each MiX meeting, the council will host an AASA board member or industry executive to lead a roundtable discussion and ask questions of the members. As part of the program, a MiX representative will be selected to represent the group on the AASA Board of Governors.
 
The goal is to use MiX as an advisory board which represents millennials from aftermarket supplier companies. Executive hosts will benefit by receiving a compilation of all the responses and comments made during their round table.
 
The MiX Executive Partnership Program was inspired by an enlightening and productive meeting with Marc Blackman, Gold Eagle chief executive officer and chairman of the AASA Board of Governors, at the group’s meeting prior to the 2019 Vision Conference. He led an hour-long roundtable with the group, discussing the need for more millennials from AASA supplier members to engage and participate in the aftermarket discussion.
 
Blackman noted that it is an invaluable experience for an executive to be able to pick the minds of MiX members and ask some tough questions about the future of the industry. MiX members also were very inspired to see a top executive take interest not only in the council, but in the younger generation in the aftermarket.
 
The next MiX meeting is set for Thursday, June 27, at Delphi Technologies in Auburn Hills, Mich. AASA member executives interested in participating in this or future MiX meetings should contact Ben Brucato.
