Tom Otter, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for US company Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems, has been named co-chair of the leadership team for the ninth annual Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week (HDAW). The conference will be held January 2014 at The Mirage in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Edward Neeley, President of Truck Supply Co. of South Carolina, joins Otter as co-chair. Fleet Brake President and CEO John Bzeta was selected as Vice Chair to round out the 2014 leadership team.
“We look forward each year to the valuable experiences, programs, expo and networking at HDAW, and it is a tremendous honor to have the opportunity to help shape one of our industry’s key gatherings,” Otter said. “I’m excited about the chance to work with Ed Neely and John Bzeta, along with the volunteer and staff planning teams, to bring together the 2014 show.”
Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week is the largest North American gathering of the independent heavy-duty aftermarket industry, and is presented by a joint operating committee of leaders from 13 industry associations. More than 2,000 executives and managers from the US, Canada and six other countries represented distributors, suppliers, service providers, educators, and industry media at the 2013 conference in Las Vegas.
