A special meeting was held last night in Dallas, where the National Automobile Dealers Association unanimously voted in Peter Welch as the New NADA President. Welch will officially take office February 1st, just prior to the NADA Convention held February 8-11 in Orlando, FL.
Welch was appointed last night after a long search to fill the top leadership position. A highly recommended car guy, Welch has been in leadership roles within the California New Car Dealers Association since 2003 and has been managing its government affairs since 1990. Welch not only has years of leadership experience, but his tenure in California facing some of the most stringent regulatory practices, will surely have prepared him to now take on any challenges that NADA has ahead.
Congratulations to Peter Welch and the entire NADA organization.
