Russell Mastroff, president and CEO of Cold Air Distributors Warehouse of Florida Inc., was honored with the Art Fisher Memorial Award, during the recent Federated Auto Parts national meeting in Phoenix.
Each year since 2005, an individual (or individuals) who exemplifies Art Fisher’s dedication to the membership, the group and the industry, has been recognized with the prestigious Art Fisher Memorial award, Federated’s highest member honor.
“Art would be very proud of Russell and the job he is doing to grow his business and help lead Federated. He has brought many new ideas and approaches to the group to benefit our entire membership,” said Bo Fisher, chairman of Federated Auto Parts. “It is a pleasure working with such a generous, supportive and proactive member like Russell and a privilege to present him with this well-deserved award.”
Cold Air Distributors was founded in 1962 by Russell’s father Marvin Mastroff, who also was recognized with the Art Fisher Memorial Award posthumously in 2008. Russell has more than 40 years of experience with Cold Air, from starting out stocking shelves to store management to serving as president and CEO since 1999. Today, Cold Air Distributors has grown to 17 locations with an 180,000-square-foot main warehouse and corporate office located in Ft. Pierce, Florida.
