Automotive Associations | Executive Recruiters


There are numerous automotive associations in the United States and abroad, each with their own specialty and mission. Associations are often faced with issues unique to their business model. Automotive Recruiters International has been interfacing with automotive associations since its inception. We know the issues and challenges faced by automotive associations and non-profits when faced with a search for a key leader. An example of our work would be the Chief Executive Officer search we conducted for The Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair (I-CAR).


I-CAR is an international not-for-profit automotive association, dedicated to providing the information, knowledge, and skills required to perform complete, safe and quality repairs. Automotive Recruiters International was hired by the board of I-CAR to conduct a search for the association’s new CEO several years ago. We not only searched within the automotive collision industry, but also the automotive OEM’s, OEM suppliers, and the automotive aftermarket. Ultimately, John Van Alstyne was hired as the association’s new CEO and since then the organization's profits have increased more than 300%.

Elise Quadrozzi, Board Chair for I-CAR had this to say about our service:
The caliber of the slate of candidates put before the committee was exceptional and when the decision was made to move forward with an individual, they stayed engaged until every last detail was worked out. ARI met every commitment they made with respect to process and time frames and we were extremely pleased with the outcome. I would highly recommend ARI for your recruiting needs.
