HDA Truck Pride kicked off its 2017 membership meeting under the theme of “Navigating Sustainable Growth.” The kickoff event for the program was a speed-networking event for nearly 60 GenNext HD millennials and successful HDA Truck Pride board members and executives from partner suppliers. HDA Truck Pride says it is already using feedback from mentors and millennials to shape a similar event for next year’s meeting.
“We are fortunate to learn from these seasoned executives who have grown this great industry into the collaborative business it is today,” said Nikki Paschall, marketing programs manager and GenNext HD board member for HDA Truck Pride. “Their perspective is invaluable as we prepare to service customers and connect our future businesses through technology so that together we may drive sustainable growth into the future.”
The HDA Truck Pride organization says it proudly supports GenNext HD during its annual meeting, as well as throughout the year, with participation in industry events. In addition, HDA Truck Pride has an internal group of GenNext HD participants who convene periodically to network and steer participation.
“Multi-generational networking is invaluable to those in established careers as well as those members of GenNext HD who are enthusiastically acquiring knowledge about the industry’s history,” said Don Reimondo, president and CEO. “We must pass along our best practices and collaborate to improve upon current practices to create sustainable growth for HDA Truck Pride and solidify our legacy in the independent commercial vehicle aftermarket.”
